Hot Mess

A jazzy/funky/noisy/weird tune written for the 60 second challenge. Just sort of stops instead of ending.

Pretty much just sax riffing on top of a janky rhythm section.

I LOVE everything in this, apart from the drums which are doing my nut in - is that intentional, or has some quantising gone awry?

If it is intentional then THANKS FOR BREAKING ME IN THE MIND.

Everything is intentional, even the bits that aren't. I was going for that really loose bordering on sloppy sort of hip hop feel for the drums .

So nice to hear the melody on saxophone -- I think saxophone might be pretty uncommon here on MeFi Music in recent years?

Enjoyed the intro as well -- has a bit of a suspenseful flavor that transitions nicely into the rest of the piece.

The ending sounded fine and made it feel like the whole thing could be something I might hear as an interstitial break on a radio show or podcast. I hope you post more!

Oh yeah, it is 1978 in here and I am loving it. Chuck Mangione is king. Everywhere you go it smells like cigarette smoke. But then poof it's gone and here I am back in 2016 with its beeps and boops and I just wanna hit play on this one again.

I think there should be some sorta extra challenge where, "now that you've made a sixty-second song, now expand it to four or more minutes." Cause if I were on hold, THIS is the music I'd want them to loop.

Listening to this a second time, all I can think of is, "What's the TV show where this was played over the rolling credits?" Cause I wanna see it.
