u mentioned the possibility of putting vocals on this. heck yes! i can hear that and i bet you it would be a thousand times cooler. (not that it's not cool right now...)

downloaded. wonderful job.

SMA responds:

Thank you very much. : ) I'm sorry I'm so late responding to this, but February Album Writing Month and other distractions have kept me preoccupied lately.

Yeah, I keep this one in mind for re-recording and adding vocals. I suppose I should make myself do it sooner rather than later since it's March already and I haven't posted a single thing here this year.

Thanks again!

Soundtrack Material No Doubt

It's a good thing people like you are uploading this kind of music to Newgrounds. I have to agree with the previous poster that it is very much suited for a film. The introduction reminds me of some of the compositions Robert Rodriguez made for the background music in "Planet Terror." So, that's one creepy elevator. But it picks up in the end and becomes a very Brian Eno, matter of fact, "it exists" style that is suited for what might be a normal everyday situation in a high-tech world.

SMA responds:

Wow, thanks so very much. I'm sorry to be responding to this so late, but for what it's worth, I read this at just the right time. I've been doing 50 Songs in 90 Days this Summer, and I've not been terribly productive, and I've been very down on myself for it, so I read this just when I needed to read it.

Thank you!


I dont really know what to tell you. It's hypnotic. Made me think... about what? I dont know. For some reason I picture it playing in a space elevator with Master Chief (halo series) going up into space to kick some Covenant ass. But maybe that's because I just played Halo 3. Either way, great song. One day if I own an elevator, this will be looping :D

SMA responds:

Ha ha! Love that visual! Eventually I'll get around to making a "non-core" version of this, maybe even with some vocals, and maybe now with some kind of Halo reference, since that's going be in my head from now on. Thanks for listening!

Really interesting song. I enjoyed the feeling I got while listening to it. Like something from an anime movie or something. :D

The percussion is what stuck out at me the most. It was a little loud, especially on the snare. It drowned out the rest of the song a little.
The overall song, besides the percussion was fantastic. I really liked it. Great work.

SMA responds:

No argument there. The biggest obstacle for me in the whole Core challenge was trying to mix in FL Studio, which I clearly don't do well, and the drums, simple though they were, suffered the most. Audition has spoilt me. Thanks very much for the review and the votes!

Anything but elevator music.

It sounds like it could be used in a film, as a scientist approaches his laboratory contemplating just how he should piece together his newest creation to be of most use to the world in which he resides. I envision him slowly working through the fine points of construction, testing, and researching his results until it finally meets his standards. In summary, you've created a wonderfully hypnotic work. 5/5, 10/10, and downloaded.

SMA responds:

Wow, it's that kind of comment that really sells me on a song. I was a bit ambiguous about this one. In fact, working on it this afternoon, I thought to myself, "This sounds like something people in the future would play on their elevators," hence the name and description. But you've painted quite the image for me now. Thanks very much for the awesome review!
