Well the first time I saw you

You just looked right past me

Well then I thought to myself

What good could I be

If you don't see me

Well I guess ill just get on home to die

 

 

Well I wrote you a song

Hoping you would sing a long

But you didn't know the words

Somehow that was a surprise

I guess that I've learned

It's best to share your songs before you sing them

 

Oh oh oh

 

Well I went online and this is what I found

That just one verse is not enough for a song

I guess that means

I'll have to write some more lyrics

So I was already expecting to do bad with this because I've had this awful flu all week and, if that wasn't enough, my laptop completely broke, leaving all my music software gone. But eh I decided to grab this like 8 year old laptop (with an old copy of FL...9) and do a little something.

But I was such a noob that after like 45 min I went into sound preferences and somehow broke all sound output on FL and ALL SOUND ON MY ENTIRE LAPTOP. So I threw up my hands and rendered out what I had done so far. Which was nothing. I dont even know if the rendering worked because... no sound.

I had an unmoveable conflict during OHC today. But I didn't want to miss OHC for the first time in about a year(!), so I snuck out and submitted this thing. It's a single take piano improv I did earlier today. I spent about 15 minutes on it - 5 minutes to play, and 10 minutes to fix a few minor issues.

I imagine that seeing a doppleganger would be a very dark, scary, mysterious experience, with lots of dissonance and stuff.

The "story" of this song follows the theme description almost to the letter. The confrontation comes at 3:00, and then after you banish him there's an outro that suggests things will never be the same.

Piano is the best instrument, why does anyone even bother writing other instruments other than piano. There is so much melodical space to explore.

a distant memory

posted in OHC260 on Oct 03, 2013

tough theme!

the way that i interpreted it was that you were looking back on childhood through the lens of memory. so there is one theme which is pretty prominent - the first time you hear it, that's representative of the time that you spent at school. that theme is constantly being reinterpreted through the entire song, which represents how the passage of time effects how you remember your time at school.

i know this is pretty far from the theme, but... tough theme. so deal with it!

---------------

me, starting OHC at a reasonable time: "finally, i'm not starting 30 minutes late! this is ganna be great! im gonna blow everyone's mind!"

me, 30 minutes later: "i hate this idea, time to restart"

I hope you can excuse the many many many errors in this piece. Most of it is raw improvisation with only the barest of fixes :X

well, you get the idea.

basically i couldn't mix at ALL.

the person who should not give up is you

the thing you should not give up doing is listening to my song

the reason is that the 2nd half is much better than the first half

and if you're wondering why i kept the first half, it was only cuz it fit with the theme in this meta way.

:D

sorry i missed last time. i actually wrote a song, just failed to upload it on time. dumb X(

this is my first OHC with a MIDI keyboard! hooray! really lets me explore a lot of melodic space... not so much time to choose instruments though :p

it's gonna take a while to get used to using it during OHC.

While everyone else has decided to writ epic entries, I decided to chill out and write an easy going one.

And to continue with my unconventionalism, i decided to barf all over the mastering stage so it sounds like crap!!!!!!! intentional i say! INTENTIONAL

walking back home. enjoying nature. the birds are a-flutter. opening your doo-

HEY

WHAT

OK THATS IT. EVERYONE OUT.

sorry this is basically a troll entry. started 40m late due to thanksgiving. it was fun anyways though for reasons you may see.

Nature, bugs, etc

In the first scene, the bugs and you rejoice. Bugs are friends. You are friends with bugs. Bugs are nice. It is nice to be with bugs. Nature is nice.

In a deleted scene, you accidentally step on a bug.

In the last scene, the bugs hunt down and kill all of your family.

Don't mess with bugs.

Deeper and deeper

You take a relaxing break by a nice waterfall. Out of the corner of your eye, you notice a cave behind the falling water. You look closer... it goes on for quite a while. you go deeper... and deeper... you start to find signs that not all may be right here.

RUSHED at the end, sorry. FL studio crashed on me twice in the last 10 minutes ;_;

Dream of The Shore

What an appropriate entry, I was super sleepy today.

The first part is falling asleep. The second part is the dream.

First time with an 8 bar chord progression. That was really hard!

Also this is horribly mastered. But everyone knows that dreams are really reverby so whatever :D

One last thing: I've gone back to college, so I may miss some of these entries. You all remain in my heart.

"Sir! We must shut down the factory!"

"WHAT?!?"

"Yes! Sir, the chiptune levels issuing from the laboratory are just too high! The chiptune you're producing is too dangerous for public listening!"

notes: i came into this one about 20 minutes late, still had a lot of fun though!

Seeing things

I was thinking about how black lights let you see things that aren't usually visible... there is a vaguely creepy sense there.

I was away from the comp for about 40 min so I didn't write anything spectacular.

This song is dedicated to my own death because I decided to write this song rather than studying for finals. Enjoy!
