Last Update: Blarg! I just uploaded it and I played it back only to hear that one section had stuffed up volume levels, so I fixed that, tweaked a couple of things, and NOW it's absolutely final.

Update again: I think the composition aspect of this is absolutely final now, a little bit of extra dynamics, but it's only barely noticeable. Anyway, this is the final, the one for judging for the MAC8-Pillars of Pico, Dad 'n Me section. Enjoi!!!

While I'm at it I might as well do a bit of a story to it.
The song starts out with the father and son, going about their normal day, walking through the park, hitting anyone that gets in their way. What fun! Then the time change is their picnic spot, and there happens to be some kids in that spot. So they pick out their targets, and bash them one by one, a little slower, and more laborous task, but they've got their perfects spot now. But it's still mid-morning, lets go kiddie hunting. So the fast part is them running through the park swinging their fists all over the place, hitting lots of things. But oh-noes! There's another bully in the area, and him and his dad want to fight us! So dad 'n me wrestle with the other big guys, and manage to pin them to the ground until they call defeat, and they sit on the bench watching their defeated foes run away, distressed. That's the minor part, and the brief major part after it. Then they spend the afternoon tripping up the occasional kid, but they're getting a little tired. Dad says to me, we should probably go home soon, your mom will be waiting for us, so they make the most of the end of the day, a last ditch of beating up some more children, and they make their way towards home, as the sun sets on the horizon. (Would that not be the most awesomest newgrounds day movie ever?!)

Update: Here's a more coplete version, the slow section is shorter and I've added a fast section and a key change, so it gets a bit different near the end. It's not quite finished yet, further criticism is welcome, if you haven't reviewed it already, please do, tell me what you think.

I'd like to know what people think of this. It's simple, it's fun, but it's also repetitive, and I need to mix it up more and add a lot of variation to it. I really like the tempo shift, and if I could add a couple more, I could probably get the SMW ending theme type snazzy sound. It's still a long way off being finished, but here it is anyway, up for criticism. It's supposed to be in the style of Dad 'n Me. This song's for you, Dan Paladin! <3

Also: LOL



The beginning is nice and joyfull, but it got a lil' repititive in a way. I liked the tempo change you did. The second part you did was good. but repititive too. Very good job.

People find this review helpful!

Thanks. I've updated it and mixed it up more now, so hopefully it sounds less repetitive.

A couple of duff notes, but...

I think this is a good song, but that main thing you had going against you was "1, 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, 4, % ^!" Those last two notes sounded a bit flat to my ears. Consider knocking them around a little, just to get it sounding a little better.

Yeah, I liked the tempo shift, as you played it nicely, giving the whole tune a well balanced feel. I wouldn't reccomend it as a loop though, because ti can be quite a shock hearing the slower tempo replaced by the fast stuff.

Thanks for the review. I'm not quite sure I understand the number thing, you've got there ^_^
But, the two notes that sound dissonant, they were meant to be that way. The dissonance was a device I used to break up the constant happy vibe, a few accidentals here and there adds cheek and makes the song much more colourful, without the accidentals, it would be the same as any old upbeat happy piano tune. Thanks for the review, I understand your issues with it, but if you listen to some ragtime music, there'll be a whole lot more dissonance and accidentals to what I used.

very good

I like the rhythm... it has a unique style
I mean...
the piano was pretty amazing... it started like a 'happy piano' & was pretty nice.. & kind of funny to heard it... because it was fast.. it really make you move...
and then... it gets slow & more & more slow... that was an amazing effect
sound like the pianist was getting tired, let say the pianist was getting a calm...
was an effect that you don't see on Ng all the time...

WritersBlock responds:

Yeah, I've tried to incorporate a fair few things into this song that I don't hear nearly as often as I should, and that'd be key changes (haven't done that yet, but probably will), tempo changes and accidentals, tasteful dissonance is hard to find...

Thanks for the review!


I love it as a composition.

Yeah, more variations, some more mastering and it should turn out kewl.

Can't wait till the finished song ^__^

WritersBlock responds:

thanks man. I'm also keen to see where this goes. =P


There's something about this I'm not too keen on but I can't quite put my fingure on what it is, maybe I'm just not keen on the style. Anyway, it doesn't sound too bad, I mean the piano is very well played in this and really comes together very well, also it has a nice back beat to it which is very good.

The tempo through the whole things changes pretty well too, which is good, there's nothing here that can really be improved on in my opinion. The ending is well done too, so good work overall.
