Neo-Metry Medley

Author Comments

Okay, I'd like to start off by saying that this is a medley of all the default level background songs from the game Geometry Dash. I guess I'm kind of nerdy about Geometry Dash - I check out the new featured levels every day, play them to the best of my ability, etc. I've been doing this for a few months now, and I know the game pretty well. I'm certainly the best at it among my friends, although I pale in comparison to some of the other players out there. In any case, my obsession with it is nerdy enough for me to internally justify medleying its music to make a track and call it 'nerdcore'.

I'd also like to say that this isn't actually nerdcore. If you're reading this while listening to the song, you're still probably on that 'chill-trap' part at the beginning, but it'll quickly evolve far, far away from hip-hop. I was going to keep it electronic, but I was having way too much fun for that at around the two minute mark. But I have absolutely no idea how I would make a nerdcore song in the conventional way so bah. I've had the idea of a GD medley for a while, and I figured that it would fit better in Nerdcore than in any other genre. I'd have done this after the Genre Quest was over, but 'Deadlocked' by F-777 is coming up as a level and I have NO idea how to cover any of that stuff. :D

Man, I learned so much about melodies and composition from this song. Even so, there are still a bunch of wrong chords, since Step and Waterflame are compositional BEASTS. Anyways, it's been a fun week working on this, although most of the work was done in the last two days. Thanks for listening and hope you enjoyed!

Hi! My username is LunacyEcho, and I've been a contributor to the Audio Portal and the Newgrounds community for a few years now. I get that tensions are high about songs referencing Geometry Dash, what with all the illegal reuploads going around. But I promise that this one is, as far as I can tell, completely legal - I do use others' melodies, but these have all been reproduced by ear. No sampling audio files, no copying MIDI, nothing that I can tell is illegal based on the license that Newgrounds songs are shared under. If there are any problems with this song, please let me know, and I'll try to sort them out to the best of my abilities. Thanks!

I like the idea a lot! The melody at :22 seemed really out of place when it first came in. I think you needed a clearer transition when it first came in. Other than that, you mesh all these tracks (many of which I love, btw) together quite well. I liked the instruments throughout. One tiny thing that bothered me is that the brass synth pad at 2:30 was a little too loud IMO. There were some other minor balance issues too, for example the drowned-out melody at 2:50. Other than that, I love all the synths, and you kept up the intensity and mood throughout. The ending felt a bit inconclusive, but I imagine it was hard to end it given all the various songs you crammed in here! Love the idea, and it helps that I'm familiar with about half of these songs. :) Keep up the good work, LunacyEcho! ;D

LunacyEcho responds:

=> 0:22 =>

Yeah, I've been getting that a lot. But that's what you get for not listening to feedback! :P

=> 2:30 =>

But.. but... the wubs! Yeah, I see what you mean. :P In my defense, it sounds AWESOME when played out of my Mac speakers (which are definitely renowned for being the best speakers in the world obviously)

=> 2:50 =>

You mean the Electroman Adventures melody was drowned out? I can see what you mean, but I sort of just wanted some more high mids in there to keep up the balance. The Club Step melody was the focus of that part!

=> ending =>

Yeah, seriously. None of the songs in the game have proper endings, since they're all cut at ~1:30. So, I had to work with what I could. :P Glad you can sympathize!

=> familiar with about half =>

The Waterflame half? :P

Thanks for the review! And man, going through all your missed work must be long and arduous. Thanks so much for going through all the trouble!
