Fuck it. I wanted to hold on to this track for my album but I just can't stand not having put anything out yet this year. It's driving me crazy. I love sharing my work that I'm proud of and this has been bothering me since I finished it. Besides, I figure since newgrounds is pulling through with their redesign, I can post this in celebration. Here's to all the chaps that hang out/ drop in/ visit/ download/ vote. Freebieees C:

Also, I'm submitting this to Chrons Love Contest. You might ask "Quarl, what does this have to do with love?" Well, on valentine's day my girl friend is gonna be 1000 miles away. That means I get to spend time making love to my other girl frend. Her name is music. Fuck, I love composing things. I love syncopation and I love weird time signatures. I love dirty synths, clean pianos, gliding pads, hard drums and I love art. The title of the track is a reference towards The Fauves.

If any one want's to try mixing this into a DJ set the track starts at 182 BPM, chorus 157, then picks up to 175 and the ambient part at the end is 157. The end might mix weird because starting at 2:30 the time signature switches from 6/8 to 8/8 a lot. At 2:47 there's a count of 10/8. Starting at 3:19 the time signatures continuously change between 6/8, 8/8, 6/8, 12/8, 6/8, 8/8, 6/8 and finally 12/8. Basically, this song is unmixable. LET ME KNOW IF YOU TRY :D :D

It sounds really industrial and gritty, and I like that. The drums sound right in place, a lot of the sounds you used were tight, crisp, and fit well, and I like how you kind of mixed up the theme and made it something your own. Very creative.

Some things I don't like, though, are that some of the melodies sound kind of weird and out of place: like at 1:29, there's sort of a horn sound that sounds like you just recorded a ringtone of yours and placed it in there, and the major melody I hear from it doesn't fit at all with the rest of the song which (sounds like it) is in minor. And about the horn there, the sound itself doesn't really fit in either; it sounds like a sort of MIDI horn or bad Kontakt patch that you downloaded or made with the 3xOsc. Maybe a saw lead or something in its place? I don't know, but the horn doesn't sound too good. That horn and the piano that played with it both kind of stuck out as something that shouldn't have really been there.

Now, don't let that big paragraph that says some things I don't like about the song make you think I hate it. I don't hate it by any means, I think it's a good track with a good theme, but there were just a few elements that really threw me off. Keep at it!

- Cheers!

NAC Judging:
It's pretty original but the melodies and the mood of the song are pretty dark, almost depressing, I wouldn't say it brings feelings of love toward the song but like...holy crap I wanna kill myself with this song...so as good as the song is, I don't think it respects the contest theme very well.

Nice. Very fun to listen to. I loved the keys that played throughout the song. This would be a great song to dance to in a club in my opinion.

gracias mi amor.

hmm..

I do believe there is such a thing as too much diversity.. also if all the times signatures are multiples of 2 then it's still technically mixable :P

it's very hard to judge a piece like this - the mixing for the most part is fine - it's just personally a bit awkward sounding due to the alternating time signatures.. like a cripple attempting to walk, in slow jerky motions, the flow is eternally interrupted at intervals.

For the most part it sounds cool though.. it just gives me a headache hahaha..

8/10

lol, love you shawn :p
