(Quasi-8 Bit) Running

Author Comments

Gonna start uploading a few of my quasi-8-bit pieces since NG likes that sort of thing. I say Quasi because they don't really adhere to 8 bit limitations (e.g. 4 note polyphony, low low sample rates etc.) Oh and they're not actually made on 8 bit hardware, just standard DAWs with 8 bit synth emulations.

I don't use ANY effects on ANY of these pieces, though. So they're still *fairly* true to original 8 bit composition. Truer than these people using mountains of spatial effects and dynamic processors and still calling their crap 8 bit, anyway.

This one is called: Running

There's a fair bit going on here, several time signatures used throughout and even some (simple) polyrhythmic stuff. Guess I wanted to get a tense vibe with a sense of urgency emphasized with the 5/4 meter.
