This project was started in late July 2020 in Logic Pro X, and finished today. This is my submission to the group stage of the Newgrounds Audio Deathmatch 2020! Super excited to participate as always, and best of luck to my opponents. :) It took me about 15 hours of work in total. The original idea for the chord progression came from a sequential transposition of the letters in the word "tenants," first into numbers based on their place in the alphabet (20, 5, 14, 1, 14, 20, 19) and then into chords (2 is a supertonic chord, 0 is a leading-tone chord, etc.). Yes, I often do things like this to come up with ideas for music. XD Most of the instruments are from Logic's Legacy Jam Packs, but I screwed around a lot with the distortion on those organs, as you can probably tell. Anyway, please check out the other NGADM tracks: https://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/1454884/1. ROCK ON, Newgrounds! ^_^

Yeah, 4.5 on this one, it's good, but it's just too basic. it sounds like it wants to be at a mall hotel lobby, but then breaks out and wants to be more. There's not a lot of anything going on. it's sporadic, which is fine! I dig the overall idea, but it's just not going past much more. The distorted grungy guitar and the piano play a very good play into this. It's just not got a path or anything going for it. It lacks feel I guess is the best way to put it.

TaintedLogic responds:

Thanks for the honest criticism, man. Yeah, I'll try to find more of a distinct "direction" for my future tracks to take. :)

too many sporadic musical ideas none of which are realized. Piano volume is too high, instruments generally not mixed well. Seems like it was rushed. Keep tryin!

TaintedLogic responds:

Thanks for the feedback, man!

Nice! Really enjoyed it, I reckon you should push the drums a bit though!

Loved the solo at the end too.

TaintedLogic responds:

Thanks so much for the review! Yeah, I agree about the drums. I'm always too stingy with the compression. But glad you enjoyed it. :)

I like this type of stuff! Keep it up! :]

TaintedLogic responds:

Thanks so much, man!
