Insectoid Friends

By Phil Harmonic on February 4, 2018 10:36 am

Ok, perhaps this is a bit of a cop out but here's what happened. For the last couple of weeks there has been a cricket living underneat my man-cave. It has been driving me absolutely bananas having to go across the room to stamp on the floor to get him to STFU. I reached out on the internet and several people told me I should just sample it. So I did. The guy actually STFU for a while after that. Anyway, I made this simple track with the sample of my insectoid friend so you can share in my annoyance. heart

Pretty funny... gets a little Hitchcock (Alfred not Robyn) in the middle. I hope that little MFer got what was coming to him.

Haha, nice! Definitely sounds like it becomes an alien, so hopefully that's enough to freak it out and tell it to go to some other mancave, ha!

what a great use of frustration lol

The repetition is both fun and yet creepy. This is probably how you felt for the past week. so much emotion in one song.

I love that you processed this for its rhythmic content.  I almost wanted to hear you go full Hrvatski breakcore on it, but as is, this is really nice. (So the little dude just had red light fever?)

Give him a break; he's just looking for love.

Nice piece, BTW.

this is totally creepy and i'm afraid it too would drive me insane.  I'm assuming your man-cave is a basement?  but how is he underneath the basement?

Oh, my mancave is not in a basement. It's just my spare bedroom that contains all of my gear smile
