Wakeboarding Butterflies

Author Comments

Have you ever tried putting a leaf on a lake and then putting a butterfly on the water on the leaf on the water and then attaching the leaf to a dragonfly with a spider silk or something and pulling it really fast? Y'know, it'd be a wakeboarding butterfly.

This track was made for CACAOPHONY Round 1. The Chips Cacaophony is the first larger scale event of the compo, and it's been really fun. This track placed second which is really really good!

This track is structurally inspired by Garlagan and productionally inspired by Miyolophone. The structure here is ABCBCDACB, with three drops and a very divergent D section, and the production takes roots from https://chipscompo.com/entry/1112. I'm in general really proud of this - I'm personally regarding it as my best work up until this point (though it isn't perfect). Hope you guys like it!

very professional produced, with lot of (unnecessary...[never 4get its mho]) work at the drums/effects etc . coz without it, it would be gr8 and not a wannabe impress-the-(in general lightly stupid, diplomatically said) crowd and shorter with more impact.... yeah, good boneshakers implemented... whoa

thanks!

it's not so much that i try to "impress the crowd" with my percussive intricacy as it is that, as a musician, i'm very aggressively dynamic and need my music to have variety at every second

One of my favourite songs ever.

Yeah this is pretty good. I went looking through all your 2018 songs to get a song for gd, and this one had the most <ahem> adventurous fell so hi. (Lol I’m editing this after a few months. Cool, but a bit repetitive)

1f1n1ty responds:

the track's all about being super swag, so it certainly fits the gd formula

also wtf you gave me 0 stars

Wakeboarding Butterfly?

Sleepboarding Butterwalk! 8)

No seriously, good song. Nothing else to say here.

1f1n1ty responds:

oh

but butterflies can't sleepwalk

they can wakeboard but they can't sleepwalk what's a sleepwalking butterfly that's preposterous

Nice buildup at the start, it was a nice touch to get an ocean surf feel to set the tone. Again at the 3:12 mark, it worked in a nice break to prep for the climax. I loved the beat throughout, great work!

1f1n1ty responds:

ocean drum + rain stick = sick waves

thank! ;)
