NGADM Round 1! On your marks, get set, GO!

This sOnG was entirely inspired by gimmicks in sound design - first it was "I wonder if fake contrabass pizzicatos layered with bOnGos sounds good?", then it was "Let's try string-like pads that swell and decay, because Tyrian Maze did it first", then it was "How about some humOnGous chord stacks? Everyone and their mOnGolian doppelgangers love chord stacks", etc etc

AlOnG othe way there was a bit of frustration when things didn't work, like when I couldn't get the cOnGos to sound good and when I couldn't get the drops mixed good enough. Those were OnGoing struggles. I'll be honest if it wasn't for ONGOADM, this track wouldn't have brought itself together.

Anyway, this is On Go; hope it's On Good! Big thanks to BlueOceans for rendering the violin solo and to Miyolophone for being there every step of the way and to ZelgeOn, God of mixing, for being incredible at productiOn / Golden advice and to KaixoMusic + Lethalix for being my competitors this round. Best of luck!

Holly cow. 5/5 on your 3/4th magic. I honestly wasn't sure you were the same composer that I had talked to years ago but I see now that I was right to believe in you all those years ago (Has it really been that long????) This shows absolutely genius composition in more ways than I have time to express to you. That being said I do hope we can talk soon.

Absolutely beautiful composition +
mesh of unorthodox instruments ++
time signatures and time changes!? +++
I cant.

Sounded kinda weird at first, Somehow that transition made it sound incredible

Im F L A B B E R G A S T E D

i worked decently hard on these transitions thanks

Not often do you hear electronic songs in 3/4 6/8 or 12/8 and more songs in general I think should be.

1f1n1ty responds:

i agree, 4/4 is overrated

WOAAAAAAAH this is so nice! <3

1f1n1ty responds:

ur so nice



Give me the juice.
(Sorry for the lack of anything constructive, I just really love the song and suck at making music so any criticism I give is probably flawed or useless so instead I attempt to replace it with terrible humor). But seriously, you deserve a whole lot more attention, and serve as a role model to me in my music production.

1f1n1ty responds:

but but

i don't have the juice ; ^ ;

(it's fine if you don't have words, i get it, it's the thought the counts right :D)
