A real pez-zler, this...
Weird amalgam of synthetic aural fabric... the hissy-synth and the repetitive piano riff began to chafe my ear lobes a bit, but it was a fun experimental romp into plastic electro-pop-land. I liked the slow sequencing up in the middle there, felt like a rising bubble.
ttfn,

Curious
How did you use Swarplug? I don't hear anything obvious (to my naive ears) Indian in the sound palette here.
Good mellow electronica, a bit repetitive but the genre supports/encourages that.

This man reads the small print!
Swarplug contains an indian harmonium. With that in mind, listen to the last 20 seconds again.

Thanks for commenting.

Ah (light goes on over head), thanks
I mistook that for an accordion sound and didn't make the connection.

I like...
Not as technically astute as the others, I'll just have to leave it with, that was cool! - I liked what it did to my lobes, but I happen to like repitition -

Thanks! - D

Very Interesting
Hello Vic! I liked the piano riff and the experimental nature of this track. Nice aural candy. Repetitive, yes. But, it was still a nice treat, never-the -less. I'm not adventurous enough to try something like this, (as far as writing goes). I should give it a go sometime. Thanks for sharing this with us. Peace!

Tonalities
Thanks for listening and comenting.

This track was a bit of an experiment in one part not really knowing what the other parts are doing. I never wrote down chords, just tried to add parts that would fit in with the rest. I kinda like the feeling that you can never really say what chord or tonality you're in.

Awesome!
I know this was time consuming and you were probably pulling your hair out, but you are really, very good at this. I think you should do more classical pieces in the future (time permitting, of course). It would be a fantastic addition to the site. Keep up the great work, my friend! Take care!

oh yeah
Nice interesting sound experiment, especially from the middle where the dissonance kicks in. Fun.

This tune accurately illustrates...
...what orange Pez does to most kids (sugar rush!!!). Very lively with lots of twists and turns and whilst it may seem repetitive to some there was always enough going on to keep me hooked.

off kilter
but how nice I would have said experimental bec it seems to travel out of the realm of anything pop A great tune glad I checked it out

But it's mostly blue!
I was attracted to the title. Aurally I'm reminded of Frank Zappa's G Spot Tornado and Thomas Newman's soundtrack for A Series of Unfortunate Events.
Busy and fun, yet simple. Like a Pez dispenser.

Some of this reminds me of KC
Some of the piano patterns remind me of Fripp's rock gamelan thing in the eighties.

Gonna go with "groovy"
Very much UNLIKE anything else I have heard your compose. The piano rhythm is what drives this, and that syncopated beat is engaging from the very first note. With the amount of repetition going on, it was nice to hear the rising piano around the 1:15 mark and following. What would really make this sing as a rhythm track would be a complete and sudden tonal shift up to a much higher key right around 1:30 or so. Depending on the application, this could be an effective background for a commercial. And you may think this is odd, but my favorite part of this track is the bass line which, to me, has a wonderfully lively little part all its own with many variations as it climbs through all the rest of the effects you've created. Now, throw in a soprano recorder playing riffs on a Bachian theme and you'll have nicely melded the baroque with the electro-modern. Oh, and any reminder of Pez dispensers is absolutely the way to bring a smile to my face! Nice, Vic.
