For some reason I find it difficult to use a Fender Rhodes in an electronic context and not end up totally ripping off Moon Safari. As such, I channeled a fair amount of Air and Boards of Canada for this one.The bass, chords, and keyboard beat were originally sketched out for a scene in the Starship Goldfish pilot, but we ended up cutting it out for something more simple (and rightly so...this funky ditty was too much music for the spot). That said, I always dug this little groove, so I finally decided to flesh it out.

Shoutout to my thrift store Casio SK-10 for the samples in the initial drum loop.

If you're an animator and need music, get at me. Here's my scoring reel.

Also let me know if you're NY based. I want to meet more local creative people.

I made an audio reactive video for this track in After Effects too!

This was my first time trying to do particle generation in AE. In the past I've coded all my visualizer videos by hand in Processing, but I want to try to head in a new direction.

Constructive critiques and comments always welcome.

I love the electric piano and catchy percussion. It has a really dreamy and jazzy quality. Some of the rhythmic synths don't always work for me, notably the conspicuous perc that plays for almost the entire piece (and re-enters at 2:23). Once the more atmospheric sections came in, that instrument sounded a tad out-of-place. I really like the strings at 2:35 and the sense of flow to the whole thing, though. It comes together really well between the melodies at around 3:15 and the fittingly tranquil ending. Nice work overall, Bryan! Looking forward to getting around to reviewing your other recent tracks. ^^
