Come in, come in! Quick, close the door behind you. You don't want to let any of that cool air out, do you?

Thank you so much for coming back for more of my non-genre specific musical experiments!

This week I took things in a super playful direction. A few months ago, I remembered about Mozart's Piano Sonata 16 in C Major, which for some reason was also part of the soundtrack of a crappy Three Stooges NES game. Anyways, after remembering about the song, I jotted down the main melody onto the M8, saved the project and didn't look at it again for a long time. Then this week, I picked it back up and decided to make things a bit funkier: I added swing to it and a bunch of percussive instruments, which kind of gave it a somewhat Brazilian vibe (to my ears). Then I decided to add the sound of a cuica and that's when the Brazil really felt like it was coming across, hahahaha... So I added a few more layers, played around with some slowdown effects and just tried a bunch of different things.

In the end, the final product isn't perfect, but I really like where I was able to get with this. I'm not sure if this is the song's final version - I might come back at some later week and maybe embellish it a bit or maybe add lyrics. Who knows.

But for now that's all, folks.

Apologies for not listening and commenting very frequently over the past two weeks. Work has been really busy. And if I'm being honest, Baldur's Gate 3 has been taking some of my time, hahahaha... Since starting my main campaign months ago, I've racked up about 70 hours and I JUST entered act two (of three). That game is so damn long, hahahahaha...

As usual, made entirely on the M8. I used a bunch of internal synths for the synth-sounding stuff and the Korg X52 samples from this sample pack.

Congrats on officially surviving til the halfway mark!
Optimist perspective: you've gotten this far, that means you can make it to the end!
Pessimist perspective: remember how hard it was to just make it to this point? DO IT ALL ONE MORE TIME.

Peace, y'all!!!

What a goofy fellow

Neat idea using the Bach melody as a starter.  With the funkiness you applied it gave me some Aphex Twin vibes.  That main synth bass has a sweet sound to it.  Nice play on the melody with the higher synth lead.  Yais i like! smile

is fun, is good

Bright, fun, & unique adaption of a classical staple. Excellent sounds all around, and the funky re-imagining really works!!

feels like a power up to the next half!

here we go!

Nice one! I think Mozart who have enjoyed this cover! It has a cool mouth harp feel to it too ... which I'm sure Mozart would have approved of ... 'cause I do!
