SMES presents "Still Alive" from the amazing game Portal. This song was written by Jonathan Coulton and we planned to cover it! Recorded with two Zoom H4n's with 4 mics plugged into them and mixed with Logic.

Sax solo, Jarrod Brereton.
Piano solo, Harry Cook.

Thank you for our small fan base that has encouraged SMES and given so much support to us. It is truly incredible. And a big shout out to Camoshark for your support and wonderful help getting us out there. Thank you and I hope you enjoy.

Cake, anyone? And thank you =)

Well composed, not a bad listen, just not my taste. When I think of Portal I look at the future and technology. This creates a bond between the way "Still Alive" was created and the idea of Portal. In my mind such a soothing and up beat style such as Jazz doesn't fit the song. The idea of a giant robot that controls your movements through a lab doesn't say Jazz to me.

Again, great piece... just an unexpected style and not as filled with synergy to the real game.

Fair enough. Good review so thank you for your input. I do appreciate it! =)

This.......was a triumph!

SMES responds:

Haha, thank you. I love still alive puns :P

Like everyone else, everything but the piano was great. Though, I did rather the piano when it wasn't doing that irritating triplet thing.

SMES responds:

Hahaha well triplet thing shall disappear think! Thanks for the review!
