glitch ur blues (screen of death)

posted in OHC800 on Feb 08, 2024

mazedude sent me the source to "Cyborg Blobby" years and years ago. I wanted to make similarly glitchy music but haven't really.

so here's some.

this is for that kid.

also hi. happy round number to those who celebrate

be slapping water like

posted in OHC600 on Apr 09, 2020

yeah idk lol

i had some ideas but they didnt pan out quite right, especially with the time limit. ohc wow what a concept

anyway, happy 10 years and 9 days since i started doing OHC, @me

it's been 10 years and 2 days since I first started OHC. I haven't been particularly active for a while but I really wanted to hop in for this milestone. (agestone?)
love all yall <3
oh yeah, entry description. uh... that's a badger in the pic, right? wbl. lol
this also features a script i made that randomly gives me samples from my library. thats where all the drums come from.
a throwback to OHC105

I just took CJ's entry from 7 years ago and added SFX and music, mostly played live. and also DDRKirby's and usabell's entry from that compo.
it's kinda hard to work with this much material so quickly uhh

whatever i had fun \o/

do not fear

if you look in the bible, the description of angels are actually super terrifying
which is why they always introduce themselves with "do not fear", presumably

dont take the stairs

posted in OHC443 on Apr 06, 2017
the other night, i used a neural network to generate a bunch of drum samples.
that's the source of all percussion in this song.

however, my desire to make a sort of "bossa-chopped staircase" sound didn't mesh so well with AI-generated drums. so uh........OH WELL


posted in OHC432 on Jan 19, 2017
i wanted to play with some tracker style scratching, kinda got bogged down in details but w/e

i experimented with chord phrasing a bit, too

follin up right

posted in OHC388 on Mar 17, 2016
i just wanted to hear "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (track 6)" on an upright bass
and i may as well use ohc to kick my butt into doing something, right?

oh well
this was inspired by "birds on e" by Mike Dearborn

i recently rediscovered some liquid dnb song that I only knew previously from kazaa. (of course, they were all mislabeled and 64kbps)

anyway, influence.

strife rush, reward

posted in OHC328 on Jan 22, 2015
so I've made another VST. it's called STriFE.
it's pretty neat.
this song was a bit of a test drive for it, and oh god it's not finished yet, half the automatable things don't work :(

but I still made something (the entire second half of the song is 100% STriFE...and drums)


posted in OHC295 on Jun 05, 2014
ended up scrapping my ideas like halfway in so here's another quickmade cute dumb tune :\
(30 minutes whatver)

4 rapid fire silly songs

posted in OHC294 on May 29, 2014
the goal: write a bunch of silly songs, one after the other, as fast as I could

naturally I regretted the decision after a few minutes but NOPE CANT TURN BACK, GOTTA MAKE SILLY SONGS

(I managed to make 4.)

touch house

posted in OHC293 on May 22, 2014
i tried to make something and failed so i made this house tune super quickly in like 15 minutes

(already had two layers sketched out, i just expanded on it + fx + etc but yeah)

lost luvu or smth idk

posted in OHC283 on Mar 13, 2014
I was a bit slow to get into my groove and then I was late and yeah >_<

but I was able to make it to this compo because spring break hooray

also I released an album hooray:

don't let it backfire

posted in OHC277 on Jan 30, 2014
everything was going fine until you were spotted.

now you have a bunch of these goons on your tail. great.

the good news is that you've nabbed the goods, and you just need to escape. in one piece.

good luck.

(hi today is a snow day for me so I'm able to make it to ohc! i miss u guys <3 hopefully I'll have a few more days with no thursday classes so I can compo again)


posted in OHC269 on Dec 05, 2013
I have recently aquired a new superpower: making VSTs.

one of my first ventures into this territory has resulted in an instant-dubstep-making synth.

good or evil? well, who am I to decide...

I'm just making cool bass sounds :D

(all synths featured in this song are F2FM. even the chords.)

rainy yesterday

posted in OHC266 on Nov 14, 2013
tbh it was a rush trying to complete my album before today, so I'm a bit musically drained now.

but here's a little something anyway.

remember, the world today is better than it's ever been.

(also check out my album)


posted in OHC265 on Nov 07, 2013
a time travel mishap.

it's been two years since you landed here, but looking back on it feels like longer.

you're not going back. you will die here, and your broken machine will rust away long before humans start walking on two legs.

a revelation, an emotional breakdown.

nothing is permanent.

especially not you.

eating dreamers

posted in OHC264 on Oct 31, 2013
they say that if you're eaten during a dream, you'll never dream again.

(sorry about the weird screamy sounds in the background. most of those weren't supposed to be there. I think there's a stuck note somewhere or something idk whatever sorry)

(also full disclosure: I used this OHC to extend an old sketch of mine. I more than doubled the length during the hour!)


posted in OHC263 on Oct 24, 2013
dangerous? maybe...
but you can't help but stare at the serene glow...

(kinda bland sorry)
(check out this EP I made it is the complete opposite of this song)

wherein I grabbed my microphone and tapped on a bunch of things, then layered it with so much other stuff that you couldn't tell what I did anyway.

(bleh. I really wasn't feeling it tonight. )


posted in OHC256 on Sep 05, 2013
the big show(down)

or at least that's what I was going for. I got a kinda neat "something big is about to happen" vibe but the song has 0 cohesion :(

the spirit of air

posted in OHC254 on Aug 22, 2013
made using like 90% vocal samples (thanks cats milly, circuitfry, shannon, beardyman)

only the strums aren't vocal samples.

explanation: my song kinda fell flat on itself half way through but I liked the idea of "let's use stuff from bronycon, which I just got back from!" I actually made a mini-mix of the stuff I made during bronycon (plus the listenable part of my OHC tune)

1. u got a special house (made in my hotel room on day 2!)
2. surprise house (made in the hotel lobby on day 3!)
3. only one house (made during ohc today!)
4. fake trap something idk lol (made in the airport on day 5!)

enjoy! hopefully!

this is me "angrily" creating a song


temple taste

posted in OHC243 on Jun 06, 2013
not quite as finished as I'd like this to be, but whatever.

spent 59 minutes and 26 seconds on this! (I know because I recorded the whole thing.)
I started late and recorded myself making it.
I spent exactly 59 minutes and 28 seconds on this song.
but then my antivirus software decided to spike my CPU, and it's been at 100% for the past 20 minutes now.


but yeah, I've been listening to some dancy bassy something recently idk
also HDD BREAK...ING DOWN!!! yeah this a quickmade song on my laptop.

I haven't let a broken computer stop from OHCing, and I won't let it now.

..but I will miss the listening party due to this failed hdd.
trying to fix it.
wish me luck. >_

discoooooooooooo house!!!#$^#!$^#

this has no cohesion though, I ran out of time whoops

check out my EP it's full of tunes in this style:


posted in OHC224 on Jan 24, 2013
I always did kind of want to remix this tune...but didn't bother until now.
Somehow I thought it fitted the theme, actually starting (+ finishing?) a remix.

but then I was like "ok this isn't going anywhere, time to give up"

BUT THEN I DIDN'T, because theme. good thing, too.


posted in OHC221 on Jan 03, 2013
at first I tried breathing new life into an old song/idea of mine (a cover of the krakken battle music from Earthbound)
then I was like "yeah this isn't working for me"

so I tried working in a new DAW instead.

with guitars (also new to me)

sadly the song itself is not as fresh as this description.

but, IQ care...

posted in OHC216 on Nov 29, 2012
so I guess I ended up working on a remix for some contest???
also I guess this qualifies as trap maybe? ?? ? ? ? ? ?

also, I started on this yesterday so the total time spent is an hour and a half. so yeah.

downtime before tomorrow

posted in OHC211 on Oct 25, 2012
have you ever been scared of something that was about to happen, but knew you couldn't do anything about it?

that feeling when you just want to sit down and wait and enjoy the relatively pleasant time that you have left until ______ happens.

you uncover a secret chamber in an ancient temple.

walking inside, you notice something strange: this technology is millennia ahead of everything else from the time period, despite having the same coat of dust.

you found an ancient PWM synth.
yeah, that bout of depression/confusion/ was pretty bad.
but strangely, I feel new and different now.
I can't really explain it other than through this song.


also, I'd like to plug my latest album/EP/thing.
it's absolutely nothing like this song (but it's fun!!!)
people mock and fear me all the time, calling my creations abominations just because they're made from chopped up pieces of whatever I can find lying around.

but that's rediculous.

maybe, soon, they'll see that it's better this way. that what I'm doing is their best hope.

you know how sometimes, you can remember a few details about someone (or something), but only a few?
a vague memory, in other words?

all of the parts you forgot usually end up in this valley.

if you're lucky, you can find the other half of your memories.

It put me in a weird mood, but not a bad mood.

"old school" by a different definition of the word.

musical memory album

posted in OHC183 on Apr 12, 2012
reflecting back on this compo...I've made some good friends, found some good music, and had many, MANY good times.

even if I still can't make a decent song in an hour, after 2 years. (or at least...I can't keep my songs from falling apart from EXPERIMENTS AND IDEAS)

trippin on vibrant edges

long story short, I found an old notecard from highschool and it drained me of my musical ability. So this was kind of hard to make, and such.

obviously that fits the theme.

VERY worried.
They spend their days in a drug-induced haze, trying to squeeze the best out of what they believe to be the last of the world.

sadly they never seem to realize that each week's new prediction is wrong, and the world is doing fine.

It's a hectic place.

the factory looks more like an aircraft hangar, but with an intangible fog.

the really sad part is that most people forget the dream by the time they wake up, but at least they wake up in a good mood.
