Amazing composition….a real gem!
Thanks Tom. Boring the listeners is my greatest fear! Yes, I suggest headphones because there is a swirling stereo effect which only works properly with headphones on, as you rightly guessed. This song is about the rise of the Cyborgs, from initial communications to a robotic type march on humanity, a la Terminator style.
Thanks DJ Ursine. I can’t take all of the credit for this. I use loops mostly, and the timing takes care of itself on the app I use. An ear for what will work, and some imagination helps, but I guess I’m more of a DJ than a musician.
Cool experimental sounds you have here, Steve! I really appreciate how you never rest on your laurels by relying on a formula. Instead you push your sounds in new and exciting ways–it’s quite inspirational. So what’s this one about? Does h/phones suggest we should be listening to this with headphones to get the desired effect? I can def see how this would be even more impactful w/ headphones!
I’ve been looking forward to hearing this since you recently mentioned you were going to release a sci-fi themed song. This is some masterful FX wrangling. Where others may give up on the difficult task of keeping the FX from losing the beat, you’ve pulled it off with what sounds like a very disciplined approach to your rhythm elements. I can definitely keep movin’ to this groovin’!
