Finally finished this piece and HOO, it was a journey. [Hooray for timezones! :) ]
I recommend listening to this with headphones/earbuds for the full experience.
Disharmonica is a track created over the course of a few days. Every single note really means a lot to me.
First, I knew I wanted to celebrate artists coming together and celebrating Pico day. Hence the multitude of different genres combined, both peaceful and discordant. It also allowed me to try and find new ways to mix different instruments in ways to make them sound well together.
A really fun part to make was the implementation of Newground's mascots, specifically Pico and the Tankman. Recently, I've come across a style of music utilizing weaponry sounds as actual percussion. The multitude of artillery sounds really aided this, especially if you know the origin of Pico to begin with. [This took a while to make sound right/set the tempo too.]
Lastly, I want to thank everyone for coming together and celebrating Newgrounds. It really is a place where all of us can get together and share our passions together, good or bad. I hope this music shows that.
Happy Pico Day everyone!
