Fish Notes

 

Playing around with MixCraft Pro 7 – wanted to do something synthy, so I thought I’d throw together a video game-y stage loop with a “final dungeon” sort of feel, as I tend to enjoy such pieces (any well-composed game from the ’80s and ’90s had to have a good last level theme, right?).

 

 

I feel like something’s not quite right, or missing, from it, but a plethora of tweaks and additions I tried only made it sound worse.  I probably just need more practice with modern synth and techno.  As much as I enjoy it, my mindset’s still too ingrained with orchestral tendencies (or simple waveform generation, on the other end of things).

O Stomach

Sick face
 

O Stomach —
You hate me today.
Did I eat something wrong?
Did I get in your way?

O Stomach —
That’s not very nice.
I’d say knock it off,
If you’d like my advice.

O Stomach —
I’ve got things to do.
I’m not making it up.
I promise it’s true!

O Stomach —
I’ll make you a deal:
You’ll get tasty things
If you don’t make me keel.

October: Start!

Well, look at that; it’s already October.  And you know what that means – it’s the eighth month of the year!

–I mean, tenth month of the year (dang it, Latin!)!

It also means that it’s officially O.K. to start decorating for Halloween, and that’s a good thing.  And it’s time to start thinking about a costume for all those parties you’re sure to attend.

Like this one, here:

 

formalsuit

 

This…formal suit?  Hold on, I think I’m missing something here…  No, that’s–that’s all it says.  Formal suit. Is that just a…no, includes mask.  All right, yeah, good.  Got to have the mask.

You know, the featureless blackout mask that people are always wearing with tuxedos.

Wait.

Wait.  Maybe I’m not missing something, but – what’s the opposite of missing – finding?  No. Overincluding?  Extracluding?  Yeah, maybe I’m extracluding something.  Is the suit not the costume, but the costume is the suit?

Are you not dressing up as a fancy person wearing a suit, but as the suit itself?

…wh–what?

O.K.  All right, Halloween, you’ve–you’ve, um…yeah.  O.K.
