Malinky Robot

By Jim Wood on June 5, 2016 1:28 am

Inspired by the Sonny Liew comics (highly recommended). All sounds generated using Sugar Byte's Obscurium synth. No vocals for a change.

I'm impressed that all the sounds came from one source as there is quite a lot of diversity.  Even without the vocal manipulations it still manages to sound distinctly in your style.  It's disorienting and yet still manages to all gel together.

It's quite an impressive instrument; one might say, too impressive. It does a significant amount of effect, time and tonality shifting between patches. I found myself using only a very basic I-IV bass line to control what was going on.

this is a crazily diverse track.  also impressed that you did all of this on one synth!  very nice!  reminds me of some of the soundtrack for the game Machinarium in a great way

Almost like music to an experimental play or contemporary dance piece. Really love it, the piece is a real journey. Nice work!

Pretty much sums my feelings on this - quality.

Impressive piece! I like how the music is experimental in nature and continually shifting, but still feels really coherent and natural.

Amazing. You really have a cool synth. So many nice sounds and random sequences. I want more of it.

Heh -- actually, I don't have it, just the demo. And, after some extensive useage, I've decided not to buy it. It does way too much of the work for my liking. ::)

Really cool textures bouncing in my ears and I really like how the synth has that wavey feel to it.  Nice job!
