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.

WARNING: There is a brief section about a minute in that makes use of a strobe effect. If you know you suffer from epilepsy, you may want to steer clear.

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...

Absolutely brilliant.
Just so creative and amazing and the animation was fantastic.
BUT it would of been super funny if there was a gangnam style one!
Good job and keep up the good work.
