JIAZZY

By A Thorny Succulent on January 28, 2016 4:06 am

I also made a weird drone-y piece this week but ended up submitting this one because I wanted to do something a bit more traditional.

This is basically your stereotypical jazzy FM song. I've been wanting to do stuff like this for a while but just never got around to it. I'm sure there are dozens of tracks that sound just like this, but it's cool since I just did this to prove to myself I could (and I had a lot of fun writing it)!

Also I decided to ditch FM drums this time since I've always had trouble getting the right punchy feel with VOPM, and honestly I'm glad I did! I'm trying to work towards more chiptune fusion instead of just chiptune since I've been doing pure VOPM tracks almost exclusively for a couple years and it's time to change.

4/4, 111 bpm

Nice wordplay (FM both as sound-generation and radio). Nice take on the jazz concept too - much more abrasive.
