Trying to paint an image of something that once used to be rather popular. Well known. No one could get enough of it. But then one day came along and everyone forgot about it.

It seems free. But empty. No worries, but nothing to look forward to. Doesn't matter what it does it is still the same.

What it must be like to be faded.

Let me know what you think of this track.

UPDATE: Never had a chance to up the final version of this loop.

Want to use this in your work of art?

If you want to use this in a movie, video game, or flash submission you already have my permission to use it. All that I ask is that I am able to at least play, and or see how my projects are used in your work free of charge. (Conditions below)

"Independent film makers" and "Independent Video Game developers" are FREE TO USE MY WORK in their works. But please contact me first! I might be able to rewrite my music to better suit the motion picture or your game!

That is right! I am not looking for a contract, I am looking for publicity for my work. I am not looking for royalties, I am looking for a CHALLENGE. If you'd like to offer me a contract that is cool, however I am looking to see my work actually make it out there somewhere.

If you like what you hear already you can use it free of charge from me. (Exclusion below)

"Commercial video game developers" and "commercial film makers" requires a contract, and or Royalties to be given to me.

That is all. Message me by PM if you have to but I would much rather see it here in the comment section. Sometimes I go months without ever checking anything on here so it is nice to see where this track ended up.

Kinda like a flashback

I love it. Everything is EQ'ed right and nothing seems out of range on my computer (I do not adjust my personal EQ, all stock). One thing I would like to hear from this is more adlib drum beat breaks before the bass cuts in and when they cut out. Watch the volume on some of the higher pitch sound effects and make sure the (res) isn't peaking when it comes in. I don't know how you did the strings / guitar but I would love to hear more rythm and funky drums in the middle like a James Bond meets Solid Snake feel. You got it going but around 47secs but it could definitely be more funky.

One more thing to test. Try giving it a little more swing.

Awesome stuff you got here!

TheCon-Sept responds:

As far as the drum beat goes... I haven't figured out what to add to it. However I have changed a few of the sounds to make it more "toned" correctly. I missed it the first go around. I am trying to change the main background to at least add in a new chord or vary it smoothly. been thinking of adding a bit more vox's as well. but nothing fits the mood.

sounds like...

Sounds a little like Amon tobin / Cujo , me likes. keep going and you should be fine

TheCon-Sept responds:

I have yet to finish this track.

There is so much more that I could add to it.
