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!

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)

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

It's nice but how can it be house when it's future bass?

1f1n1ty responds:

because genres don't make sense on newgrounds

It must be weird that this track doesn’t remind me of wake boarding butterflies. Hmmmm...
Anyways, section D is so different that I like it. The drops can use improvement, but I can appreciate the amount of instruments used in the drops.
Sorry for jumping around sections, but the intro and the ending remind me of leaves on water, then the part after remind me of butterflies, but surfing on a giant surfboard on a beach, not really on the leaf.
This is a very interesting and original song. It can use improvement, but it is still great.

maybe you should watch the oFFICIAL pROMO VIdEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HLb8QVk_-uQ

i mean butterflies on a surfboard is close enough right

Wakeboarding Butterfly?

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

1f1n1ty responds:


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! ;)
