Erasure! Animotion! Art of Noise! Kraftwerk! [rock ala Rage Against The Machine] Vangelis!

Amiga demoscene music! I can see the rotating colors and polygons right now.

It also reminds me of the Brinstar music from Super Metroid, especially those fade-in notes. Good stuff.

Best part was the bass line. What gear did you use? This might be more retro-futuristic than futuristic. The lead ring mod arppegiated line calls to mind a robot on bagpipes. I would like to hear more melodic variation, maybe a wild solo that really aims to rock out the universe.

This is like a blast of pleasure straight from the center of my brain.

Great tune! To short, though. All good music should be longer. Anyway I can download it???

i do plan on making it longer and probably making a bit more dynamic, thanks for the suggestions

also, for all of mefi music, you can download tracks by right clicking on the little blue floppy icon (next to the track) and choosing save-as or whatever the equivalent option is

I just woke up my wife from cranking the volume on this song. She says it's good, though, and I agree. Fantastic.
