Austeprice

By Devieus on November 3, 2018 8:29 pm

Don't you worry about austeprices, let me worry about austeprices, you worry about the things you should worry about.

What is an austeprice? Nothing, it's not an existing word, but imagine the SEO on the word now. Also I guess I get to define the word now. I'll have to get back to you on that.

Composed entirely in Korg Gadget for Nintendo Switch, then recorded the melodica afterwards. I initially intended it to be in a more minor scale, but instead it became this.

It also highlights the difference between the C major scale and the C Ionian mode. The C major scale has a progression that leans towards a I-V-I type of deal where it moves to the dominant and resolves back to the tonic, whereas the C Ionian mode has no such restrictions; this song is, in fact, in C Mixolydian but has the major scale tendencies in it.

I reckon it's definitely incorrect to say it's both in C major and C Mixolydian, but that's basically what it is.

Also, it'll be my birthday in the week this comes out, so here's to that.

WB loaded this so slow that I walked away, came back to the PC and started playing a game. The song began playing and I didn't know where from. 10/10 would play Call of Duty to this again.

I'd play this under any game.

It's the going market rate for australopiths. Higher for the musically-talented specimens.

I still don't know what they are.

Nice, I haven't checked myself, but I know my plan would work.

I always compose in C, it's kinda my thing. I'd shift to D, but it's not quite the same. D minor on the other hand is just fine.

I like it better when the cat's playing a party horn.

It has a kind of regal feel to it.  I can imagine it being a fanfare played in a royal court or something.  Also happy birthday!

Happy birthday! Excellent use of the melodica.
(I had to Google it, the image search tries to suggest to me that austeprice is a Kindle reader. Looking forward to your proper definition.)

A quick check verifies you are a lock on the #1 ranking for austeprice across all search indexes.  Time to leverage this into a product. This track has the fanfare of a concert in the park! I think it's the brassy lines with the kick and cymbals.

Happy Birthday! Don't forget to mixolydian a lime in that tonic.

Thanks. I doubt the king would much appreciate this song, though I might have to run it by him.

That's not what I'm getting, and I'm still thinking of a definition. It'll be next year at the earliest probably.

In some places even #2 as well (it links to my WB profile). The squares make it a little tricky for it to be in the park though.

What's a birthday party without a bit of lime.
