This was a tough project to start. I had such a hard time getting it off the ground since I wanted to break away from my usual melodic habits and avoid using a 4 chord progression. So I went for a swing approach that focuses on the main melody.

I wanted to catch that old time vibe you hear in 50's horror flicks and 90s cartoons. Something with a horror theme and a wacky vibe :D.

Think of a zombie news anchor tapping into television signals all across the nation and hypnotising the viewers into joining his zombie army!

It was frustrating at times but I think it turned out pretty well and I'm really happy with it! I hope you like it to!

I freakin love this music, it IS indeed grim/cartoony styled, which is why steampianist said it was similar to the Grim adventures of Billy and Mandy I believe.

In any case, well, not a music expert, but this certainly made me smile too. Please keep it up!

Oh man I loved that show! in fact, that art style is the kind of style I had envisioned for this track! :D Thanks ^^

Well done dutton! I like how it starts, with the white sound haha. Great melody overall. And nice progression which i like most. Its really getting epic around 40 second, that part is really enjoying me.
I like your use of those instruments. Sort of funky, swinging beat. But as you mentioned about the vibe its obviously true, great work!

At 1:25 (and more) there is a synth sound or so you hear in right ear, which is kinda annoying. imo. I dont like it, maybe you do. ;D Also the end is not my "taste." But those are just little things, rest is great.

thx dutton for another cool track! I like it!

DuttonsaysHi responds:

Hey thanks man I'm glad you enjoyed it! and hmm synth in the right ear? I keep most electronic elements in the middle the only thing panned to the slightly to the right is the filtered trumpet, just to balance out the violin on the left. That goes on throughout the song though not just 1.25. I guess that can drive some people a little crazy with different instruments in each ear, it's not for everyone I suppose :P. Thanks again!
