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.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

it may be an anoyang cat but the song is good and fun just a tad on the anoyan side but still a good game/video/flash so you deserve all 5 stars enjoy them


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Very creative!

This is an excellent movie, animation, and music, the way you're mixing different music genres in Nyan Cat music make this totally hillarous, that's all my opinion, you deserve my 5/5 rating and 5/5 stars.

Loved it. TWo questions though:
1 - What genre was the piano meant to be?
2 - the one after the cat waiting on the phone is SKA, isn't it?

PS: Loved the Star Wars.

WoodTick responds:

Yep. Ska. Visually, it was supposed to be a Mighty Mighty Bosstones sort of thing.

For the piano section, I had originally written an organ fugue (in the style of J.S. Bach). It was terrible. It sounded messy, and the alternating major and minor thirds in the main melody caused all kinds of counterpoint problems. So I stripped almost all of the parts away and went with a generic pipe organ theme. Probably the weakest one of the bunch, IMO.

Best nyan video I've ever seen. You were quite creative with each scene.

I like the part with the Mario music.
