    Sonic 2 - Chemical Plant Act 2 (33% complete)
    I've finished everything I said I would, got past the 2-2-2-2-8 sequence mentioned previously. Lots of drum play in that one. This also means I'm almost finished with the original part. So now I need to be clever and get creative. I still need to find just the right sounding bass, but I think I'm getting close to it. I haven't even bothered to find a voice clip of anything yet. I think I'm not looking in the right spots. I know I can find a good Bill Nye clip if I really look. Or maybe some other famous scientist from history. I think I'll be able to name this something other than Chem Plant Act 2 once I find it. I've already got good ideas cooking for the next part, but I'm also tired. Lots of math. Lots of discovery. I progressed a whole 20% today

    A few more changes to make in the previous parts. I made it to the bridge after 10 loops. This is where my bendy bass is really gonna come in handy. Also thinking a different drum combination will be essential for uniqueness and flow. 2 measures slow, 2 measures fast, repeat, 8 measures fast. Needed a quick food break. Also might hit the hot tub as I went to the gym earlier and am feeling tense in the back lol

    Sonic 2 - Chemical Plant Act 2 (19% complete)
    Finally into it. There a little bit of an oversaturation with some of the instruments. Think I need less bass and more harmonics. That and I'm still experimenting with the settings. I need to find THE PERFECT sound with the bass I'm trying to make. That's the biggest problem I have with this song right now. I do love the DnB sound with this one. Still need to find a clip. I've been looking for good Bill Nye clips, but I might need to find a different source. A challenge indeed, but a fun one.

    I pretty much got the lyrics already written. Wasn't hard, I just had to add a little bit to the original. I'm using two different sets of drums for this one simultaneously to really mix up the sound a little bit. Two bass drums, two snares, etc. It's actually turning out better than I imagined it would. Need to add more harmonics. I need to find ways to transition from one part to the next. I cannot WAIT to really get this one going too
    I need a break. Been at this for four hours straight

    Sonic 2 - Chemical Plant Act 2 (14% complete)
    Yep. Going back to the Chemical Plant. I'll save my original ideas for later on in the song. I found a cool harmonic synth that I will use for the intro. Now all I gotta do is find the perfect synth bass to throw in with a couple of bends to it. I'm trying to get more of a futuristic sound to it. This is actually proving to be quite the challenge. TONS of math involved for all the setting I'm changing. I'm discovering a few more as well that I can mess around with. Definitely going to be more of an experimental piece than anything. Makes sense, right? Chemical Plant is a laboratory, I'm experimenting with different things, I do feel like a scientist with all I'm doing XD

    Project 88-A (12% complete)
    Formerly Sonic 2 - Chemical Plant. Honestly I dunno if I should make this a remix or not. I think I should make this an original . . . I've got better ideas for that anyway. I'll think of a name for it eventually, but it's not sounding bad right now. Got some cool riffs going. Might even make it a lyrical. Who knows where this can go

    Music is finished! I just need to finish writing the poem, get Jova's clips, record my own clips, and throw it all together and that's it! Sure is hard trying to finish the poem though. I've got two more verses to go, and these actually have to connect to the ending, I have to connect verses 7 to 10 somehow. I'm not exactly feeling the grammatical flow at the moment either. Maybe some coffee can help
