Carnival Rush

By xavoneir on September 16, 2018 11:03 pm

"The Grand Game is a Prime Sector that spans a theoretically infinite amount of space and time. It is supposedly a universe-spanning planetary superstructure with the universe located inside of itself. Simulated atmosphere and suns give the Grand Game an Earth-like living condition. From its surface, the Grand Game appears to be impossibly spherical; from a distance above, it appears completely flat and stretches out forever; in truth, the Grand Game is the shape of a Möbius strip."

This is a good week; 37 is my favorite number. This track was inspired by a challenge placed onto me by a friend of mine: create a good song that combines carnival music and the bass riff from Rush's Tom Sawyer. I did something similar, while also putting my own spins onto it: chiptune instruments and polyrhythms.

Wouldn't have been able to tell what the challenge was, just from the sound. Always cool when synthesis results in unrecognizable evolution. The heavy distortion and resonant bass evokes the same sense of impossible scale that you seem to be describing, in my mind.

Limitations and narrative are indeed the backbone of creativity. Great results!
