Nyan Cat - Genre Hopping

Share Collapse

Author Comments

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.


Very nicely done the music sounds perfect with each scene, truly a spectacular job

wooo!! dethklok!!

I must say I was surprised a Nyan Cat flash was on the frontpage, but this did not disappoint. I loved all of the different arrangements of the Nyan Cat theme and the great pixel art that came with it.

man, this was absolutely brilliant and it only took you two weeks??? is there anyway you can upload the audio track to the audio portal? some of those parts were too good not to be in my music folder.

Just did about 15 min ago. Should show up there soon. Took just over two weeks. About one for the music and another for the animation.

This was excellent! Loved the pixel art and everything about this. The music was merged seamlessly. One thing I'd have to critique, though, is the lack of a real ending. The beginning segment made me think the Nyan Cat was dreaming all of this (super cute!), but then it ended with Nyan Cat coming to invade Earth? This may be me just drawing parallels where there are none, but it left me wanting for a resolution to the story.

P.S. to the people who think this didn't take all that long and are therefore downvoting it, please proceed to make something of this quality and show him up in way less time than I know it took. Art in all forms takes time, don't try and make it seem like it doesn't take a lot of time or effort. That's just envious in the worst way.

Agreed on all counts. I apologize for the lack of an ending, but I never really intended this to be such an involved project. Originally I wanted the UFO cat to segue into the original Nyan Cat in space with the original music, but I figured that would be too close to plagiarism (the line between homage and theft is a blurry one). Thanks for your feedback!
