So this track is for the "Art Inspired Music" audio contest. We had to pick a work of art from the newgrounds art portal and turn it into a song. I chose to do Frostbite by Splosh999 or Joshua Summana as he goes by on deviant art.

(ART) http://www.newgrounds.com /art/view/splosh999/frost bite

So uhhh... Frost Bite is a really good digital drawing of an ice cold bitch that chills out in cold water and uhhh... is wet. Oh yeah, she's also really demonic looking! Given how vague the subject matter was I'm pretty confident that I nailed it C:

In all seriousness though I've been loving Josh's drawings. He's really really really fucking good. I had a lot of fun trying to embody that female wetness that's uhhhh.... cold and demonic? Yeah... GO LOOK AT JOSH'S ART HE"S REALLY FUCKING GOOD :D :D :D

Honestly I put a lot of work into this ditty so I'm sorry if the description initially makes it seem insincere. I'm just trying to be silly about it. No joke, this track was 100% composed for this competition. I might want to go back and change some stuff and there's still plenty of time to so if anyone has anything to say: please do!! I want to honor Josh's sheer skill and talent with the best skill and talent I can muster up. Seriously, the guy is really fucking good.

Oh oh oh! If you're interested in the comp and want to hear more submissions or even enter (while supplies last) here's the submission thread:

And here's the discussion thread if you just want to talk to us musicians and stuff...

Also I should probably credit those female vocal samples to Mandy Edge and Musicradar.com for the free DL:

Have a nice day. Also: do you love me?

I don't think I felt cold as much as I felt like I was in one of H R Geiger's nightmares, and covered in some biomechanical goop, which, turns out, is full of nano-bots that have transmogrified me into a printing press.

Me too :D

Sound: Mixing is solid.

Composition: Structure is well done, and it keeps the song fresh and not repetitive throughout. Use of the vocal samples was really well done.

Fit to Art: Well this track gave me shivers. The use and manipulation of vocal samples fits the art so well and conveys the feel of the image. The piano and dark sounding bass do their parts excellently to also help this along. I would say you nailed it down and then staple gunned it down a few times for good measure.

Originality: Definitely also scores in the originality department as the approach and execution were pretty interesting.


Quarl responds:

Thanks dude.

Well, how I feel about this...I feel it's mixed well, and i like the overall creepiness to it as well as the general elements, but I feel it is missing a couple things, like it could be built onto. Also, the vocals I feel really throws it off and clashes with the rest of the song overall being off key. I like the general idea, but I feel it needs work, but overall, a good start with this.


Quarl responds:

Off key? The hell with you.

Well since you were kind and write me a review. I'm not often hear or produce much Industrial, so I have little knowledge about different sub-genres. It may be some called steam-punk or gritty. I guess there is a genre called creepy. And here goes!

This is very Interesting. As a piano player you did not play the most advanced progression, and I think that is what needed. (Never play more than needed ;) ). The devil chord is creeping out the song, which fits the art well. The amount of effects used is not to much as well. This is a kind of song that not builds much up, as the modern electronic does.

I can not say much bad for the mixing. You cleaned the mix pretty much up good. The one thing you can add more is distortion. It fits the industrial aspect. Find a good one for your song and add some on the master channel and or all channels.

Else keep up the music making. And good luck on the competition!


Quarl responds:

ahahaha, thanks man. I usually get a hard time for using too much distortion but it's nice to see someone encourage it for a change. Also: tritones ftw.
