My first round audition for the Newgrounds Audio Deathmatch 2017. I got a little inspiration from artists like London Elektricity and Tantrum Desire. It all started with a cool beat that randomly popped into my head, which ended up being the intro into the chorus. As that's how songs usually start anyway. Then I was listening around for something that could possibly fit. I've wanted to do a vocal where I'm NOT the one singing. That's when I found a vocals-only version of Living In The City, and everything just kinda molded together after that.
With this piece I learned a lot about clipping. I know, it's not perfectly edited out but I did the best I could. I've learned new functions on my editing program Audacity like this one called Paulstretch, which I was only curious as my name used to be PaulStetich so I was awfully, awfully suspicious. Turns out it was just what I needed for such parts as the ending and the cool reverb effects that go along with it. I played with more math when it came to the synth. Something different, something I dig. I had a blast making this, and I hope the end results show it in all of your eyes (er, ears, I guess)
Lot of fun making this. Big thanks to my friend Chiafriend12 from Reddit for helping me out with the vocals, my friends on Sonic Stadium for the support, and all my fans for tuning in! Hope you like it, and here's to luck
