An attempt at an accompanied canon. Didn't know that was what it was called until I was ready to post the track.

I decided to see if I could make something fun by using a single pattern over and over again and... well, I may have gone overboard. But that's okay, I had fun exploring all the instruments, and the end result isn't looking all that bad. I might use this canon thing again sometime in the future.

I've also decided to put the description before the random story.

But for now, that's all, so catcha later!


Balloof sat on the guardrail, rather disappointed with how things turned out. If he had been 12 seconds faster he would've caught the late shuttle; he wasn't, and he didn't. Thankfully, there was a friendly driver who offered to let him hitchhike.

Little did he know, he just aboarded the great carry-van, known to take in random strangers and give them a free ride.

It started out as him and the driver, but with every additional mile, someone else entered the vehicle. Soon, the van was filled to the brim with individuals of different shapes, sizes, personalities, species, everything!... except for one thing: music.

The driver put on some stabs, and with each stop a new flavor was added to the rhythm, making it grander and grander! But alas, the parade didn't last long, as the once packed van was once again empty. The blasted gas-powered transport, while convenient, wasn't suitable for fun sessions like these.

When it was time for him to get off and enter the party he was supposed to be at an hour ago, he decided to stay a bit longer in the van... a bit as in he ended up missing the party.
Better luck next time, Balloof!

p.s. Thanks Adobe Audition for reminding me that "telephone" eq is 400-4k

p.p.s. Yes, the piano is supposed to sound like that. What? You've never heard a piano through a hypothetical landline phone? Or a compressed piano? No, it's not a premade loop. Some may sound like it but I can assure you every "loop" in this track is original (or a coincidence if it somehow already exists)

This track is very calm and relaxing! I like it!
