Cyclic Surname Theme

October 31, 2010 8:43 PM

I discovered this theme while musical typing my last name into GarageBand.

It's the same six notes, in three different parts, over and over again, like a short, ugly fugue. The musical typing is a feature of GarageBand that turns your computer keyboard into a musical keyboard, so when you spell my name it plays the theme. The beat is just pulled right out of GB samples, unfortunately.

This is more of an idea than a song, but I haven't contributed in a while and wanted to post something for the awesome scary challenge. I'd say the music is a bit disconcerting, if not entirely scary.

Yea, I think you're on to something here. This definitely has a fun-house or freaky Halloween party vibe.

It's angular but somehow pleasing as a meditation of controlled cacophony. I really like it.
