The very beginning is definitely the best, still truly interesting experiment - as if Philip Glass tried C64 ;)

Quoting Joe
I like the build-up, especially after the arpeggios around 00:54 something. I could imagine that part to be extended.
Same here, totally agree.

Some people make comparisons to the work of Wrath Designs, well I still don't think it's far fetched.
There is quality in the work and referential boundaries which we recognize as being evident parts of the search of aesthetic values.

It seems more people experienced the same.
(Somehow I came to think about the music by "Fiery Furnaces" - I don't know why?)

No crap :)

Anything that you do from the niceness to extremity, that will land in people's mind in a different way. Some will like it, some will not. I'm absolutely okay with that, no probs whatsoever :)

What I wanted to say, it was just a funny thing to check the actual B tune that you labelled as crap, and thinking (honestly!) "hmm actually that is quite good" :D

I like the pressure and the rhythm. It has a "broken" loop on regular beat. Lots of modern / extreme metal riffs are built that way.

Haha, well, perhaps I was wrong then, the tune you created is excellent ;) Good to see you're making music as well!

I appreciate your input, I really do, but check your own book about your own stuff, mate!

Actually B is quite good, to be honest, eh eh eh :)

Let's be honest. This isn't it. No offense, surely. But this reminds me off my own - crappy - tunes of 1990, and even I was a late *lamer* at that time. Check out my "Early B" and "Early F" tunes for instance (at http://www.hvsc.de/ ). Utter crap in my book... Of course I had depth and meaning with it, but way beyond anyone's comprehension. eh eh eh ;)

Quite too "wrathy" as for compotune. Interesting though.

Thanks for the feedback!

@Stainless: Man, then you should hear the uncut original. It's kinda disciplined impro playing around the base theme in the first 4 minutes, then uncontrolled feedback mayhem for long, I put my DD6 on fire with that :)

@Fredrik: Considering your classic stlye, surely this kind of raw SID sounds are for your liking. Future Composer 4.0 is really strong in that department. For some reason I don't know it freezes quite often in my machine, just like in the old days.

@Stein: Basically it is a guitar improvisation transferred to C64, but now that you say this, there is something in it. I love the music of both Paul Norman and Fred Gray, surely they influenced me in the early times one way or another.

I like this. It has sort of a Fred Gray meets Paul Norman feel to it.

I enjoy this tune!
Nice sounds!

Promising. Unfortunately it becomes repetitive after 1:30 and leaves me wishing for some more beef. I really like the short part at around 1:00.
