Entry for the Represent a Country contest, JAPAN!!
So, why is this Japanese? Well first of all, Japanese music is for 99.9% written in pentatonic scales (scales with only 5 tones in them). This song is also written in a pentatonic scale. USually you can tell if a song is pentatonic because it will sound Japan-ish then. In fact, this song is written in a special pentatonic scale: F#, also known as the 'black-keys-only' scale (hence the name). This scale is played on the black keys only, and I'm pretty sure it's the most common pentatonic scale there is because everybody who wants to play Japanese music for fun plays on the black keys.
Also, this song contains a lot of squared synths. I'm not sure if you're ever heard modern Japanese dance music (and I don't mean that dance-core techno stuff) you'll know that a lot of square synths are used in Japanese electronic music.
I've also used some glissandos and arpeggios that sound Japanese. Unfortunately, they're digitally created, because I would've loved to let a guzheng or koto play them but I
couldn't find a proper soundfont for one.
Last but not least, I've used a Japanese text-to-speech thing to creating a Japanese monologue, you can find the text below.
So yeah, enjoy this frizzle :)
Here's the translation of the speech:
"Once upon a time there was a wobble, a wobble that was so dirty and muddy that everybody who listened to it, even for a split second, would get the best eargasm they could wish for. And that wobble is playing right fucking now!"
