Although I am fully aware that the Nyan Cat meme is about as old as Betty White in internet years, this ridiculous little two-week project was still a lot of fun, and was mainly for the purpose of determining how well I could pull off a wide range of musical styles in Logic. In a perfect world, this project would have been twice as long, but some genres are deceptively tough to reproduce with only a laptop at my disposal. In loving memory of Nyan Cat.

WARNING: There is a brief section about a minute in that makes use of a strobe effect. If you know you suffer from epilepsy, you may want to steer clear.

Overall this was very good. I could tell exactly what 'genre' they where playing upon and probably could without the video to help. The audio also fitted very nicely with each theme. The animation was also nice and fitted with Nyan Cat perfectly.

The only thing I have to complain about is the last part in the spaceship just, didn't really fit...that might be just me though.

It's not just you. The energy just drops at that point. But I was really happy with how the music turned out, so I left it in.
