Was so happy with Pixel Day that I immediately tried writing some more music...

I now have 8 new files that will probably sit in my RSN folder for 10 years or until I open them at some point and decide whether I keep them, delete them, or god forbid finish them. This isn't actually one of those 8 new songs. Apparently I created this file in 2019. It's a vicious cycle that subsists of "write, do-nothing, do-nothing, do-nothing, do-nothing, do-nothing for years, open old sound files, cry, finish."

It's not a very successful work-flow but it occasionally produces something and that's 100% more than nothing at all.

Just looked up the term "brain dance," apparently Aphex Twin lost the battle to IDM. I remember reading ages ago how he called the genre "Brain Dance" and it never caught on. I've even tried calling it that from time to time. Publications collectively decided sometime in the 90's that "Intelligent Dance Music" sounded cooler and then shortened it to IDM...

¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ... I guess fuck you aphex twin, lol

Super bizarre, but I like it...!

RSN hmm, wonder what that stands for now? For a short while at the start here the intro reminded me of the GTA III one back in the day. A little jazzy classy with similar melody... before it totally flipped out and turned into that trademark Quarl kind of track that just can't be categorized or compared. :P Love the ambient/sparkly bits here too, like walking through a cold winter night..

This was dope from start to finish. The shifts really keep your neurons sparking.


This is super sick, and "Brain Dance" fits this perfectly haha. So many cool sounds, that transition into the bass at 00:43 is amazing, and I love all the pitch bends and delays!!

Quarl responds:

Glad to hear you vibed, it's a strange track even for me D:

buono l'inizio ma poi decisamente svacchi

Quarl responds:

I love it when you speak to me in those sexy words I can't understand.
