For the contest A.I.M I took inspiration from this awesome artwork.


This is a bit different and I hope that it is not to far out there to be enjoyed, I must say that it was fun to create, even though it did not turn out quite the way I wanted. As far as the style is concerned I really have no idea what style it really is so I am going with the "other" category.

Sounds like Aphex Twins! I like the composition of the atmosphere. It's kind of a positive and dark mixture. Also VERY GOOD job on the glitch-drum-stuff work!

This was really good! Especially loved the beginning!!


Holy sh**!

I mean, it could use a bit more variation, but what's here is extremely good, very deep and rolls extremely well rhythmically. Fantastic production as well. Congrats!

Thank-you, I did not think that I would get such positive feedback for this.

Wow man. That's a great song. I like the sounds of the gears producing the rhythm. Like listening to a machine that makes music. Nice glitching effects.

Brilliance. I gotta be really honest, I didn't quite expect to find another intelligent piece like this and it turned out I was wrong. The half point missing from my rating focuses only on minor discrepancies that could have helped elevating your track to the upper echelons of Newgrounds and beyond, because that's the kind of potential we're talking about.

You're right, it probably didn't turn out how you wanted, perhaps because some parts needed more of a melodic base and less focus on the complex drumming. Perhaps they needed more intensity, emphasizing the sense of a clockwork that keeps going on no matter what, and perhaps you needed more out-of-the-box sounds reminding you of broken machinery, maybe some music box in the distance, like a broken lullaby. There are so many possibilities trapped in this piece it's a shame to not give some recognition.

I say well done.

OmegaP responds:

Thanks for the review, it really means alot to me. I love the broken lullaby image!
