How A Volcano Works

January 25th 2009 by



Hello. I was no where near finishing the song I planned on posting, so I locked myself in my room today and came up with this. I find it ironic that I am more satisfied with something I made in 1 day than with the other songs I have posted which seemed to have taken much longer. I think it is a sign that I am getting better at this. Hella Gems sucess story: thank you Hella Gems! I made this song entirely in Ableton. I used a couple free VSTs for the interlude: syntendo and toad.

    nice. The delay tuned to a dotted quarter note is classic. your style reminds me a lot of kelly g's electronic music (Crappy Techno, vol 1 and 2).

    You should compose music for educational flash videos. It would make them infinitely more entertaining. I am surprised how satisfied I can be with something I've rushed into production due to this site. I think it is because this process demands that the internal critic be silenced, because we simply don't have time to listen to him/her.

    Is magma the same thing as lava?

    I do not believe lava is the same thing as magma my good sir. I didn't make the picture, I stole it from google images.
