Sweet!
Awesome! I'm glad you liked it. This is sort of new sonic territory for me and I was going for a video game feel. The drums were fun to do. It took me a while to find sounds that went well together. Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

awesome
This is really cool. I like the parts where it kind of changes abruptly. Also like the freaky percussion sounds.
I want to play that video game!

Unusual...
But fun!

Arrangement is tight and never gets boring. Always something new just around the bend to keep it interesting.

Mix is nice and clean.

Although this is not the kind of music I normally listen to, I have to admit that enjoyed this one!

Be well!

Thanks!
Thanks for listening and commenting Michael. Hell, even two years ago this would not be music I would be into. I'm really enjoying making some quirky stuff though! Hopefully in my next post or two I'll incorporate some guitar!

I get a
zig zap zoop vibe on this for sure, the name is very fitting to all the different turns of events in here. The kind of song that keeps my ears on their toes. Very inventive, I like it MR, very cool!

Could be...
Suppose it could be a chick tune. It doesn't have any lyrics so it's pretty open to interpretation! Thanks for stopping by and listening!

great electon-vibe track. those drums are killer man. such a cool part (let alone the 8 bit sounds). i just created some 8 bit instruments in Logic, and listening to all of your stuff again makes me feel like playing with them. like tonight while I should be resting up for work. excellent.

I think...
I think you should do it! I love making songs with 8 bit sounds. There is just something about those sounds that make me nostalgic! I think part of the fun is incorporating them with more 'natural' instruments. That combination can lead to interesting places! I can't wait to hear what you come up with!

yum
the bit that comes in around the 1:31 mark is my fav. I imagine a gang of robot toddlers roll hard to this song. I am.

Thanks for checking out this one also. Yes, the robot kiddos dig this tune big time! That's one of my favorite parts also. I really like songs where in the song something only happens once. That's just my take but I think you know what I mean!
