A geekpop song made for Jaegercon
Last month I made a Pacific Rim-themed song about kaiju (giant monsters) and mecha (giant piloted robots to fight kaiju) for an online fan convention called Jaegercon. It's rock-influenced pop, and a free download.
The beat is an amalgamation of a couple of frequency-sliced stock Garage Band beats (slicing in Ardour, of course ^_^ ) plus a couple of drum elements I recorded live and looped; the guitar-like instrument is an Irish Bouzouki, also recorded live, processed to sound trashy and electric and kind of like a mid-1980s Duran Duran riff, and the Kaiju Is Coming solo during the breakdown is classic kaiju-flick inspired, made with very heavily distorted and scatter-filtered electric organ.
I threw it all together in about four days, writing it as I was recording, and had a lot of fun with it. :D I did undercut the mid-bass a bit much in the stomps during the bridge, tho' - it sounds nice and boomy on reference speakers and on traditional stereo speakers, but gets 'way more lost than I expected on some (but not all! Weird) earbuds and desktop computer speakers.
