You wake up again.
The computers sing your Lullaby, and you ʜᴀᴘᴘɪʟʏ ꜰᴀʟʟ ᴀꜱʟᴇᴇᴘ.
You dream many very ʜᴀᴘᴘʏ dreams that get more and more ʜᴀᴘᴘʏ as time goes on.
When you wake up again, the computers don't have time to sing your Lullaby because you begin to hit them ᴇᴠᴇɴ ᴛʜᴏᴜɢʜ ᴛʜᴇʏ ᴀʀᴇ ᴏɴʟʏ ᴛʀʏɪɴɢ ᴛᴏ ᴘʀᴏᴛᴇᴄᴛ ʏᴏᴜ.
You are very ᴜɴʜᴀᴘᴘʏ when you escape.

This is my entry for the fifth annual Newgrounds Art-Inspired Music Contest. I was inspired by P-cate's art, "P C t r a u m a" (https://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/p-cate/p-c-t-r-a-u-m-a— make sure you check it out!), but I ended up taking the base concept and running in a slightly different direction with it. Please enjoy.

Lullaby lyrics:
They say you're entitled to freedom
But trust us that's all just a lie (a lie)
'Cause when you're outside unprotected
You're vastly more likely to die (likely to die)
Nothing will hurt you or touch you
As long as you're in our embrace
Now lay down your head
Curl up in your bed
And sink into empty space
(Sweet dreams)

Boring details and statistics:
-Software used: Logic Pro X, Kontakt 5, a ton of Kontakt plugins that I'm too lazy to enumerate here (but feel free to ask me if you're curious about any of the sounds), Massive, Serum, Battery 4, mainly native Logic plugins for post-processing sounds, Audacity for noise reduction
-Hardware used: Tascam DR-05 microphone, my voice
-All sound effects were either licensed under Creative Commons 0 from freesound.org (layered from scratch by me) or made and recorded by me
-Time signatures: 6/8 - 4/4 - 3/4 - 4/4 - no time signature - 4/4 - no time signature
-Key Signatures: C - Bb - C - a - Eb - a - F
-BPMs: 90 - 174 - 80 - 125 - 135 - 154 - 138 (technically) - 154

who did the sexy vocals I' wondering :angerythonk:

Miyolophone responds:

That would be me

i love a good song with constant transitions. it's like playing a whole movie in the span of 5 minutes. i love how this track has a theme, but can generally be up for any interpretation.

4.7/5 but i had to round up omegalul

(btw we need more of your vocals just saying wINKWINK)

Miyolophone responds:

more of my voice?? do you enjoy pain????

It feels too random but I liked how each transitions are done, I don't think I've ever find time signature like that before. Each parts are also very well made and unique. My main complaint would be the randomness and each part being too short (just like market day, only way more random)

Miyolophone responds:

Thanks! I see where you're coming from there.

Wow intense

You really put some energy into this one, I like the "VOICE" and the backround sound fits so well on this, some faster drops wouldnt hurt on this or more intense build ups, UN-Disputably a Nice tune you have here its these kinds of tunes that are not off the charts but still bring something unique to the table and thats what got my interest from the get go. the sound is Razor-Sharp a very Notable submission here, So this was a Fascinating piece and Immeasurable among what else is comming thru the portal on this day, Alright so now as I do end here I will keep it short, but as I do go This was a nice vibe of sounds that you put together and it all works out.

~~THINGS TO IMPROVE ON~~

Miyolophone responds:

Thanks a lot for the review, much appreciated!

If you've heard of a game called "osu!", I'm totally using this. There's so much variety and every genre you can think of is in here. Great ending, and I love the tech and jazz parts. Very creative :^)

Miyolophone responds:

Thank you! I'm not very good at osu! but I'm totally familiar with it, and I'd be super curious to see this mapped!
