Frustration feat. Bafana

Download this song!

Author Comments

My emotions heavily influence my music. In a moment of extreme frustration with circumstances in my life, I composed a tiny piano melody with some background harmonies and a basic beat. I liked it. Then I handed the reins to my colleague, Bafana, who does some amazing work on both Sound Cloud and Newgrounds. He took my small melody and helped turn it into a serious beat. Please LVR, and check out his work at:


Thanks again, Bafana!


Omg This song is so beautifully sublime :D really THANK YOU for making some so lovely and fantastic music like this one! LOVE IT :D

Well thank you for listening to it! I'm sure I speak for both of us when I say that ^_^

You two sound quite nice together! I feel like the piano communicates well that aspect of desperation and struggle that comes with frustration, while the synths and the beat communicate other aspects of frustration, like anger, irritation, and loss of control. I can definitely hear the emotion in the piano, and rest compliments it really well. Certain parts of the synth melody had a somewhat goofy feel that I sorta felt conflicted with the rest of the piece's feel, but that's mostly just me nitpicking. Very nice collab, you two work well together.

VGSongbird responds:

Thank You. I'm glad you liked it. I'm sure Bafana appreciates it too. I really enjoyed working with him on this :D

i can´t even explain how great this beat is... *-* really good to relax

VGSongbird responds:

Thank you for taking 4 minutes out of your day to listen to it ^_^

Finally, a song with a percussion section that isn't entirely cut and pasted in... nice elements... I like the piano and strings, as there is so much on this site that is entirely synth sounding and metallic... I especially like the volume changes when the drums peak and ebb...

I'd like to hear more on this site that has the same thought put into it as this one has had... changes in mood, movement, intensity... this is a piece that tells a story... hell, music like this behind footage of , say, something like a baloon being dragged down the road by the wind would actually make that balloon's 'story' interesting.

You two make some interesting music... keep working together.
