This project was started in June 2017 in FL Studio 11. Originally composed it for the second Chips contest, I believe (www.chipscompo.com ). Ever since I made that first bizarre riff, I wanted to do something with this piece, but it never seemed to go in the direction I wanted it to. Finally found a way forward over the holidays and polished up the production in FL 12. It's about 12.5 hours of work in total, but a lot of that was just goofing around with the DirectWave samples I used. Also used DrumPad and, believe it or not, FL Keys. The jittery sound at :48 is actually a harpsichord sample.

This is a weird one, guys. Looking forward to hearing some feedback. :)

I like the first minute or so of this most. Like the altered notes and glitching. The middle section sounds a bit at odds with what's gone before, sounds like you were messing with reversing sections and tempo, not a bad thing, but for my taste the first section was strong in its own right and could have been developed further closer to that laid back vibe, it also feels a bit like there was a bit of cut and paste of sections, slightly altered.

I really feel like the first bit was really interesting, some great sounds and unusual textures, - I like the jittering harpsichord too. Saying that, if this was in a game, the middle section would work as further development, and it's not too far off some avant-garde trippy jazz in a cool way.

There's a good sense of sonic space and interest maintained as it goes on too.

Thanks for the review, Possibly! I agree about the somewhat cut-and-pasted nature of the structure. I composed the first 73 seconds significantly before the rest, so I guess I lost a bit of the original sense of direction it was supposed to have. Glad you picked up on the trippy jazz vibe, though. Thanks again for stopping by. ^_^

Always down for something weird.

Very interesting sonic layout in the intro! Warm and calm, but troubled and dissonant. Like a small toy robot, waking up in the night. Low on power, making its way back to its box. Could be a cool game, actually.

The harpsichord sample is a very nice addition, and the quick glitching was a great choice. The synth that occupied the center at the same time could have been a bit less dry, hot, and forward, but I liked what you did with it.

The guitar around 1:14 clashes with everything else, and I'm not sure what sort of image it conjured in my head. The bass and percussion were cool, though. I would have liked this part to be more mellifluous, setting up for the dissonance coming up at 2:05. It would have felt more like a journey, and less like constant struggle. Like things were going well, until another obstacle were encountered. But maybe the whole section being a bit off makes 2:35 more rewarding.

All in all, a very interesting experiment! I really enjoy the space you've set up here, and I would love to hear you create something more intentional with the elements you've discovered from this. If you ever decide to come back to it (or have interest passing it to me or another artist), I think this has a lot of potential, and I would not at all mind hearing more tracks in this vein.

TaintedLogic responds:

Thanks for the detailed review, Jacob! I really appreciate the imagery of the toy robot, and I'm glad you got enough out of it to form a vivid picture. I agree that I should've thought more about the structure and sound design in places. I'd be glad to share the FLP file with you. Feel free to PM me your email address. Thanks again for the review! ^_^
