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.

Where did you get the piano nyan cat and the ufo nyan cat?

WoodTick responds:

I'm not sure if this is what you're asking, but the part with the pipe organ isn't any specific genre. It's just a pipe organ. The UFO section is derived from Bernard Herrmann's 1951 "The Day the Earth Stood Still" score.

he! great work, woodtick! have you don this all by yourself if i may ask?

WoodTick responds:

Yep. All by my lonesome. I used a lot of modded game sprites, so I was able to cut a lot of corners, though.

I've been waiting for something like this for awhile. I thought maybe ending with Mario and having him Jump and hit a box to end the movie wouldve been good instead of just the fade out. Overall though I loved it. Great job.

WoodTick responds:

Jumping would have definitely improved the Mario section. But I was getting pretty lazy at that point. Had I known that so many people would end up watching it, I might have put a few more days into it.
