EDIT: I wasn't sure if I liked the crazy piano... so naturally I went in and made it a little crazier. You'll have to wear headphones to notice. I might go in and edit up some arpeggios if I feel inspired enough. I've been getting really lazy lately :(

I uploaded this a minute ago but took it down because I realized how sick it would sound with lyrics. I quickly came to the realization that I would be the one to have to sing it. I'm now re uploading this. It's been a while since I've laid my hands on IDM. I didn't realize how much I missed it.

also, if you happen to figure out what the name of the song means then I'll instantly tell you to go download some of his music :)

cooool, it's kinda like schneider tm meets kwwrr! aaaargh i kinda hate the dry, dissonant dance piano at first but it grows on me a little. wish it could be a little lower in volume, still. maybe if it wasn't a piano and like some weird legato synth... either way there's merit in the composition but the cheesy piano does grate a little, especially against the smoothness of everything else.

glitchey percussion is great, got some dave brubeck wacky time signatures there. did you get the sounds yourself (e.g. via opening random file types as raw audio data) or are they from a sample set? i like the big rumble-y kick/bass sound. i think the hissing snare sound has some dc offset (not uncommon with glitch sounds) so if you have a means of centering it that'd probably be a wise thing to do to make the listen more comfortable for headphone users.

i know what you mean with the piano. i was gonna upload a version without it but... i dunno? also, i haven't had reliable cans in a few years. every time i put some on im horrified by my music :p

as for the drums, they're just out of the reason factory sound bank with a few minor edits. i usually slice, layer, compress, side chain, and all that jazz but for idm i usually just make my loops with a few nice kit samples. nothing impressive. i've used an old school imac app to grab raw data and turn it into sounds before so I know what you mean, but that wasn't the case here. know of any modern apps that can do that?

I like it.

Beautiful. I don't know very much about music at all. I've only heard music like this a handful of times and I'm not very familiar with it. However, every time I do hear it, it always leaves and impression on me. The jittery, clicky percusion sounds. The sparse piano notes. The strings kind of hold it all together underneath. It's a very neat sounding music.

I always like finding new genres of music because they carry with them an incredible sense of discovery. It's like seeing a new color for the first time.

Quarl responds:

woah, thanks for the review man. glad you liked it :)
