This is really nice.  Trippy, calm at parts and surprisingly intense at others, especially that little build that happens near the beginning.  A sure #1 smash hit on Alpha Centauri.

Damn, I was aiming for the Polaris audience.

I hear Polarians are very picky about what they allow to reach #1, but don't worry I'm sure this will still hit top 10 there.  smile

very trippy, reminded me of Alice by Pogo damn i haven't thought of that song in years

It will take nearly 4.5 years for the song to even get to the Centaurians. And about 434 years to reach Polaris.

Listening to this I realise how much I like the use of small vocal samples. This somewhat tells a story and reminds me of some Aphex Twin Songs

March 26, 2018 9:37 am

Really enjoying your use of edited vocals recently. I agree about the aphex twin vibes ^

March 26, 2018 2:01 pm

Loving the interaction between the sped-up and slowed-down voices--and this structure!  There's a really compelling depth to the choices you've made here.  Hats off!

(...though they don't seem to wear hats on Polaris, so...)

Hadn't thought of that. Oh well, patience IS a virtue...

Thanks for your comments! I'll take the Aphex Twin comparison anytime ::).

Sounds are so cute and sweet. Lot of variations in space and time. I can imagine aliens having a school lesson in behaviour and grammar. I am sure, the aphex twin pet is sitting there too.

March 26, 2018 7:10 pm

Very creative piece.  The rare mix of relaxing and creepy!

LOL.  I don't know why this got me so good.

Nice sounds, i agree with the Aphex and Pogo comparisons!

March 27, 2018 8:58 am

Wow... one of your best!
Especially the slower parts are awesome. I guess they are shining because of the faster parts. Great composition!!!

March 27, 2018 7:15 pm

Yes, I think one of your best as well. The Polarians must agree wink  So many vocal snippets that almost complete words its fun to imagine what they may be.

Count me in with the AFX comparisons especially the tiff tiff tiff part smile  Digging those quick flashes of percussion too.

Great track Jimbo! Totally petulant dude!

Totally trippy. Great vocal editing!

Superb vocal work. And just the right amount of percussion. Well done!
