Mount Rushmore

By NWSPR on July 5, 2020 9:55 pm

Oh boy, I am really running out of juice at week 27.  But I eeked out an all VST arrangement to fill the time slot.  A dissonant cyberpunk track evoked by the events of our all to real present, and unfortunately not a fictitious dystopian future. Hope everyone is doing well!

I really like those percussions. Track is wide, genre is well done. Future is the new present... (or something like that)

Over the weekend I found myself wondering if there's a half-year inspiration slump for weekly beats. I was going through similar feelings, and so was a friend of mine. Anyway, I enjoyed this and love the way the track changes at about the halfway mark. Also love the moaning guitar at the end, it's rad.

Oh those drums sound huge. HUGE floor toom there, love it. And then the synth layers come by surprise!

Nailed the cyberpunk thing man, the instrumentation is perfect for it.  Love the drums on this, they really drive it a long.  And those guitar bends at the end are a super cool way to wrap it up.  Nice work all around.

This track doesn't convey a lack of WB juice! As all others said, those drums are massive. Great movement in this.

I've found my inspiration seems to come in fits and spurts.  I'll feel really inspired for a little while and then I'll feel kind of blah, but if I hang in there for a bit the inspirations seems to return.  Listening to other WB tracks helps.  It always seems like when I see people saying they weren't inspired in a particular week they post really awesome stuff.  I think this track could maybe be expanded a little more with some vocals and another section maybe, but the basic sound and vibe of it are really great.  It's something you could build on for a future track and it sounds cool as is.

I think the guitar lost it at the end there.

I hear you week 27 was a challenge. This one got me going! Heavy. Goes well with that sharknado gif!

I was going for distressed man #2 in irritable bowel syndrome commercial for that guitar sound but it may sound more like theraflu indigestion burp.  But at least one person like it according to the clapping at the end.

Very dramatic and bombastic, the build-up is very nicely dosed! Tasty stereo width with the effects! Great job!

you nailed the soundtrack for a dystopian world-collaps-scenario. Most effective element is the choir at 1:29. well done.

Thanks! The percussion is rock drums doubled with orchestral percussion.  Give is a fat sound!

Thanks! Yeah, it's summer and some of us are hitting that mid year slump. Each week I think will be my last but still hanging in there smile

Thanks! Just use a kettle drum instead of the floor tom and you'll get a big sound smile

Thanks for checking it out.  Synth guitars are so much easier and you don't have to tune them.  Not as satisfying though smile

Thanks! I doubled the rock drums with a set of orchestral percussion. Nice experiment that really breathed some life into the track.

Yeah, it's hard to keep up the creative energy every week.  I can usually pull off a technically "okay" track but I hate it when I get too generic or repetitive. I would love to add vocals to this but it will probably go into the archives.  Onward!

Thanks! The percussion was the best part.  Kind of kept me going.  I tried to add a "Phil Collins" style drum fill in the middle.  That was fun for me smile Thanks for checking it out.

Thanks, I do like those little digital bastards.  They really sing their sampled hearts out for me smile

very nice. I have been exploring this theme lately and love it!

Excellent sounding epic drums throughout.  The synth and guitars do a great job creating the melody and tension.  Dig the guitar ooooooooutro.
