AIM - Jeb's Dusty Halo


Author Comments

For my 2018 AIM submission the track was inspired by Krinkels' drawing of Jeb from his classic Madness series: https://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/krinkels/jebus-jpg

Official AIM2018 Review!

Interesting intro with that vibraslap. Sounded just freaking cool.

Rest of the track is pretty avant-garde in a way that is infectiously confusing. Basically, I have no idea what's going on though and thus can't critique beyond... well, it's catchy, but not something I can really listen to for anything other than noise. The melody is written perhaps so badly that it's almost good. It repeats countless times, and I wish that didn't give it legitimacy, since it's both very hard to follow, not set in the home key, if there even is a home key, but thanks to the way both our brains and the Madness series works, it fits.

I will say the guitar sounds terrible. Wishing you would have picked a different synth.

1:22 breakdown is an interesting texture with the clipper SFX. Probably your strongest point. After this section, we resume the really strange guitar synth, and the song rather quickly grinds to a halt.

I like it, just can't give it a great technical score.

Thanks for turning out to this year's competition!
