Here we are, NG. This is the twenty-sixth and final entry of Project 26. A combined 40 hours between me and Chocosoda went into this ending track, between the writing, recording, mixing, remixing and mastering processes (not to mention the software crashes, OH SHIT UNDO actions and other time wasters), but it's finally done.

We consulted a college level textbook on the art of mixing in order to get the soundscape just right for this piece. The result is nothing short of beautiful, in our collective opinion.

Now, many of you have probably never heard of, much less read Homestuck (and let me tell you about Homestuck...), so the material in "Clockstopper" will likely be new stuff. Hopefully you'll enjoy listening to new things; otherwise, prepare to be disappointed by the fact that this isn't a video game remix. Hey, we DO do more than just video game remixes!

Where was I? Oh, right. This piece centers around themes from Homestuck for the character Dave Strider, the Knight of Time. Dave is an all-around badass whose lifestyle revolves around multiple layers of irony, creating music, partaking in TIME SHENANIGANS, and killing shit with broken swords.

This isn't the completely finished product, though. Choco and I are submitting this piece to the Homestuck Music Contest, where it will be featured in the next Homestuck album if it wins (and that means it's now a piece of commercial music). That means, if it's on NG, we're violating our own copyright by having it available for free when it shouldn't be. This file, however, is the unmastered final cut, so it's technically a different file with a different (Creative Commons) license (and you can totally tell because we didn't even bother to chop off the nine seconds of silence at the end). I'll upload the mastered version if we don't win, though. :P

Loving it.

I'm on a big time constraint so I won't leave much. But here's my input.

For being related to something I don't even KNOW, I'm loving how badass this piece is. It's absolutely incredible. Its badassery knows no bounds. Full score, dude!

Thanks, Shawn. Like I said, Choco and I are really excited about this one. We're deeply satisfied with how it's come out, and we're waiting to see how the contest ends. :D
