TITLE: The Mechanical Circus

imagine a bunch of rusty malfunctioning robots plays music in a circus show



Wow i am simply amazed at this piece, as soon as it started playing, i was wow this is a fave automaticly, and will download it, this is truly a unique piece and i am loving every bit of it, all the unique sounds really seem to be comming together very well, so i was pretty impressed there, wish it was just a tad longer and maybe some of those extra and creative sounds, but anyways good job here.

so you have a brilliant and unique peice her, maybe if it was a tad longer and some more of the creative sounds you already have in there with more punch to it.

thank you for the review and honesty

Really enjoy the creative sound of this track. Sounds like something from a Tim Burton movie too, awesome!

The bass rhythm and drums kind of make me think of Pirates of the Caribbean with the simple rhythm. Then the guitar makes this all the more cooler later in and kind of feels like a mix between a boss battle and a rave. The constant sound of that little trinket and the ufo sound are also pretty nice.

Overall, steampunk and awesome.

thanks so much for your review

Tim Burton meets Discworld.

Hmm, this piece starts and ends with a lot of Hallowe'en influence, sounding quite macabre, with the winding of gears and the unmistakeable sound of a theremin mixing in there. It sounds pensive and very horror, but in a child's sort of way, paving the way for a 12A certificate, as opposed to gunning for the 18, that most horrors go for.

Then the tempo picks up and in the middle, it sounds very much like some of the music used in the live action versions of Sir Terry Pratchett's Discworld novels. Industrial, clockwork, steam, yet heavily influenced by comedy and a dash of slapstick thrown in for good measure (along with a custard pie)

A strange blend, one that works, yet for some reason, one that I'm not that big a fan of. Oh well, can't win them all.

Very well done! I don't think I need to tell you, but the percussion, the 3/4 time, the transition to the faster 4/4 section and back, the instrument choice, the chord progression - everything was just spot on for that circus feel. Nice production!

steampianist responds:

thanks dude

-3/4 time ftw! I hardly ever see hear this, even from me.

-This is composed really nicely, you know that? It sounds like something ripped right off of banjo Tooie. It reminds me of that wichy world level, with a boss battle in the mix later on. I also loke the sudden change, like when it goes back to 4/4 time. Retardantos in here too?

Good job

Keep it up!
