Although I am fully aware that the Nyan Cat meme is about as old as Betty White in internet years, this ridiculous little two-week project was still a lot of fun, and was mainly for the purpose of determining how well I could pull off a wide range of musical styles in Logic. In a perfect world, this project would have been twice as long, but some genres are deceptively tough to reproduce with only a laptop at my disposal. In loving memory of Nyan Cat.

Completly agree with JohnHamptonshire below, I never quite liked the original meme but damn didn't I love this. The cantina scene were my favourite, got a little Monkey Island feel out of it. Good to see that you took the time to not only just make one or two different version of it but all these.

Artistically cohesive, well planned, filled with subtle nods-and nuance. This is a culmination of this meme. Well executed.

That's so awesome! Maybe a sequel? I have many Ideas:

Baroque Nyan: Music is played on harpsichord, Nyan Cat in a powdered wig and justeaucorps strolls through an elegant 17th century palace.

Military Nyan: Nyan cat wearing army uniform, riding a tank, music has a march feel to it.

Oriental Nyan: Nyan cat in kimono and straw hat, walking through far-eastern landscape, rice paddies, pagodas, Great Wall of China, etc.

Spooky nyan: Music is rather creepy, Nyan cat as a ghost walks in a haunted house.

Pirate Nyan: Music played with harmonica, Nyan Cat wears a Bandana, peg-leg and eye-patch, and is steering a ship, while drinking rum.

Scottish Nyan: Nyan cat in kilt, music played on bagpipes.

Reggae/Rasta Nyan: Self-Explanatory... :P

All good suggestions. If I can come up with enough viable new genres, I may do a sequel. The big problem I had this time around was that most genres don't fit the tempo of the original song, so I had to scrap a lot of potentially fun ideas.

Also, I tried a baroque version! It sounded terrible. I was going for a Brandenburg Concerto sort of thing, but that style of music involves a ton of counterpoint, and the exposed instruments ended up sounding way too fake. I suppose I could try again...
