How and Why Breakdown was made......

Back at somewere to Arpil, something happened:

(dramatic music starts playing)

The problem was that the usb port(the one that has the piano for connecting to the pc) broke because i left it on a slippery edge and it fell down and hit the floor really hard.

it was a real pain in the @$$ when i got i good idea for making a track, but i couldn't make it real because of the keyboard, i didn't get a new one though.

And then i saw in the internet that when that happens there was no hope of fixing becausee it was attach to the keyboard's motherboard. But one close friend at mexico told me that it was bull$/-/!T , and i could get it fix it i could find a replacement usb port.

(Dramatic music stops playing)
(Epic Music starts playing)

I Started my "Mystical" Quest finding that replacement piece but i couldn't find for like half a year, i was really dissapointed, because i didn't have enough money to buy a new one.

But then my father told that there was a "second handed" Printer Store, my friend told me before that "maybe" printers could have the same replacement piece that i was looking for, He was right.


When i got it fix it, i run as fast as a Jamaican Runner at the olimpics to my computer(Usain Bolt FTW!!) and i made a track that could Resemble what did happen when i wasn't able to make a track.

And Thats how Breakdown was created.

I think this track should be used like an ambient track than a "listening track" if you can understand me.

i am not quite sure if this fits 100% on techno maybe a 40 % but i can find the other name of that genre.

pretty good.

it is repetitive as anything. after about a minute and then it starts to get old, with the only "good" and "fresh" parts being the short breaks where it diverts to a different sound.

overall, it could use some work.
7/10, 4/5.


Section at 2:07-ish adds IMO. It helps to emphasize how epic 2:30. And the gap again IMO is like when your fixing something, plugged it in and your not too sure if it's worked or not and it's still too early to tell if its actually fixed. Portrayed the scenario very well. Great piece.


It sounds a bit like an Egyptian theme to me.


I've always loved your music I may have a new favorite

Nice track, lose the chips and beeps.

Great track! I'd have given it a 10 but I thought the "chip" section at 2:12 was distracting from the overall vibe of the song. Downloaded anyway. Thanks for sharing.
