Telekinesis for Dummies

By roboctopus on January 10, 2016 9:56 pm

Been slacking at music for almost a year. Figured WB was a good way to kick-start some motivation.

For this week, I deliberately decided to go super chill and include a few sorta-odd chord shifts to branch out from my usual stuff. I dig the anticlimactic vibe of this, so that's cool.

This is still game boy music, but I want to use my Juno 60 more often, so there's that too.

2xlsdj, plus some Roland Juno 60 pads to warm things up, and some guitar ran through a phaser.

Beautiful! Love how much space the Juno adds to the whole thing.

Great atmosphere! I like the 'anticlimactic' song structure, like you said.

I thought the same thing! Add a lot of depth, and honestly compliments the composition as a whole, honestly. Awesome work Robox!

I hope you play that chord forever. Awesome track!

God man I don't know what is but you have such a distinctive sound to everything you write. Not sure if it's the LSDJ tone or your chords or what but when I hear this all I think is, "yep.... That's fucking to roboctopus"

Killing it as always smile

This. I was in the kitchen making a sandwich while WB streamed in the background on random and the minute a lead played, I was like, "oh, this is Roboctopus, but like, suuuuuper chilled out", and it was!

Fantastic.

Stop being so good pls

January 12, 2016 1:44 am

those classic robo instruments big_smile  somehow i feel like this song is more reflective than your older stuff.. maybe even a bit more mature (then i realized there was this nice creamy string pad behind everything and loled).  the chord changes and key shifts are spot on here.

This felt very flirty in my ears, and reminded me of smoking weed for the first time. Romantic, and playful. I wish I knew more about music, or what went into making this technically so that maybe I could better understand what YOU were feeling, or trying to portray. The last few seconds made me miss my parents. I look forward to listening to more from you smile

HARK!  THE RETURN OF CHROMATICPUS!

Man there's a lot of stuff going on in here.  Can't wait to get home and listen to this on some decent cans!

January 13, 2016 9:52 pm

smooth!

January 17, 2016 2:34 am

nice combination of gameboy and synth pads

January 22, 2016 8:41 am

This is great! Everyone has already pointed out how great the Juno compliments the Gameboy here, so I'll skip that comment. SUPER into the chord changes and how organic the GB instruments are.

Great mood.
