i'm not sure about this one...has some very interesting parts, but others I don't like. But a very courageous approach to the compo!

To be honest I don't like the tune. Considering that I'm surprised for how long I can just listen to it. So in that department this entry delivers, kind of.

Strange and interesting. Might fit a scary game of some kind ;-)

interesting approach with the sounds, sounds a little to "scary" to be listened in the long run. what did you use to make this?

Thanks all for the nice comments!
@spider-j: the difference isn't huge cause I don't use much filtering -- but these long increasing and decreasing chords are too dominant on the 8580 (cutoff too high).
@"downvoters": (no offense here!) -- I'd appreciate a comment about what you didn't like, too. Maybe it's something I could improve on?

I really like this! Keeps me hooked for at least 5 mins...
Imho could have some more turns in the long run, but I think that's just normal in this music style.
Btw.: sounds also good on 8580.

how nice, a tune with musicality and not just running a few simple patterns, and daring into sounds also, good use of 2x sounds. am really enjoying this. COMPOSER: please make more!

meltingpot667, thanks a lot for the nice review. I'm pretty sure this can be done much better, from a technical point of view -- I'm just starting and I hope I find the time to practice with the SID. Surprising and confusing the listener was part of the concept (as well as the "ah-ha effect" when finally understanding the rythm of the main theme), but I guess some of the abrupt transitions really were too much. I appreciate all feedback, if something is really bad about the tune, please state that, too -- thanks :)

Call me crazy, but I think this is musically one of the most interesting releases on the scene in a while. All the abruptness and seemingly strange transitions make it sound refreshingly different to everything else.

Yeah, I see, should have tried to get the transitions less abrupt, maybe like in minimal music ... next time ;)

This starts off unfortunately, as you'd easily be led into believing it's just random notes whose durations have random errors. Once it continues it turns more interesting, if not still very listenable. There's several places where the rhythm just trails off and stops, as if the composer got bored :)

Well, this is far from "typical" sid sound and it's my first serious attempt, but maybe someone still likes it ;)
