Dance of the Technoids


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
I decided to tap into my latent '80s Depeche Mode subconscious, and this bouncy tune popped out! Ian Beardsley (eanbardsley) heard an earlier version of this and immediately detected Spanish flamenco hidden in the techno dance chords. I opened up the stage in the middle of this piece and asked him to spice this up with a little REAL acoustic Spanish guitar, which he did a very nice job with. The above artwork gives a taste of the music video that will soon accompany the music.

Original idea jotted down June 22, 2002, and as usual, forgotten. Composed note-by-note in Harmony Assistant, imported into GarageBand 2 & hyper-tweaked.

UPDATE!: The music video is FINISHED (a low-resolution "YouTube" version is here:

and the high-quality DVD version was available for purchase at "The Lost Records" (with extras on the DVD, like a behind-the-scenes tour of making the music and 3D graphics, etc.)

I could feel ....
... my hair getting bigger by the second as I was listening to this .... yet I could still hear what I now term the "Drakonis Sound" .... what you are calling "synth" ... I sometimes can still hear as a hint of "harpsicord" in there and hints of those medieval tones I now associate with your style. The flamenco guitar in the middle was a nice addition - gave it an interesting flair.

"hispanichord"
drakonis said 3818 days ago (February 4th, 2007)
medieval Drak tones...
music was simpler back then, maybe that's it! Simple music for those big-hair days :-) Harpsichord? Well, I do have a thing for baroque silliness, and maybe that's peeking through everything I touch.,, I'm getting all introspective now, trying to understand that "Eu de Drak". Oh well, glad you like the scent, thank you for sniffing!

oh- and
the art work is priceless! Technoids dancing under an alien disco ball, perfect art for this song. As usual, great arrangement, note placement is perfect, great, bouncy rhythmn, all with the Drakonis trademarks. Ian's latino guitar adds depth and color. Great all around! :-)

Alien disco ball! That is very funny... and just you wait to find out what it *really* is! You will be surprised. I have the storyboard laid out, and the video is starting to come together now. Glad you like the changes, thank you for being a helpful listener, I'm glad you are on MJ now... well, I think a bunch of other people are glad you're here too now (and I promise not to say "I told you so!") oops.

Teamwork!
Hey Ian, this piece sat on the cutting room floor for several years... and it was you who heard the Spanish bits in there, and made them stand out so nicely with your rolling arpeggios that really seem to contrast against my synthy arpeggios that they just act like they were meant to be together... I love it when that happens! Thank you for inspiring me to work on this more and open up the stage in the middle for you to play on. As I said above, my wife thinks there now needs to be more guitar throughout, and that it needs to be about 2x longer... so methinks there may need to be a "Return of the Technoids" sequel! Again, thanks for helping out here, and I'm working on the music video... we'll see if you like who I cast you and your guitar as in the movie. Stay tuned!
ttfn,
Drakonis

It has been a great pleasure working with you, such a fun endeavor and I hope to work with you more. I would love to pepper some more guitar in the song. I have to say the arrpegios in this piece are so exciting. I really can't wait to see the video, very nice work.

I listened before I read the comments and your D'script. an dmust say.. yeah DM (not dungeon master you silly wyrm )... very DM :)

Alanah has a point about your sound.. the hint of harpsi/medeaval is usually courseing through your songs somewheres.

Absolutely loved loved loved the guitar... wonderfully styled.

I have a thin leather hot pink glo tie Ill wear tonight just for your song! Woot!! Really Drak its very good and yummy as I knew it would be.

It's sooo 80's
Hehehe, thank you for stopping in the dragon's den, Jason! I knew what you meant when you said "DM", because the *other* DM is soooo '70s (remember the D&D game being played at the beginning of the movie "E.T."?) And since you like trippy stuff, the video for this should be right up your alley. Glad you liked my latest piece here, I certainly liked your latest too!

Woohoo Craft!
Thank you for checking out the dance floor. Mixing was a little tricky on this one because I'm starting to put more and more tracks into things, and balancing all the levels and equalization is now getting tricky for this little dragon brain! This took a lot of tweaking to boost the bass & treble on things without losing the midrange. I'm excited about the upcoming video for this, I hope you peek at it when it comes out!

Didge-ache's pink tie
Brings me back to my days of listening to The Human League. A little bit. Again, this is a nice composition, Drak; you are creating some fun, bouncy, very Drako style melodies. The guitar is a nice touch, and it's played beautifully. I kind of agree with Rob that the guitar might work best beginning and closing the piece (and with part in the middle). Hard to say without trying it. Nice work Eduard and Ian!

Who does the artwork? It's so cool...

drakonis said 3818 days ago (February 5th, 2007)
artwork at SchwanSongs studios...
Glad you like my latest little project here. I grew up loving Rodrigo and Albeniz and de Falla, and I think little bits of Spanish influence were swirling in my brain when I wrote this... I thought it was wonderful that Ian picked up on the chords and performed a little snippet for this. As for the artwork, it is hand-assembled computer graphics ("ray tracing") scenery that I'm personally creating for a little CG music video short, to be posted on YouTube/GoogleVideo soon. I'll post a note in the forums here (and in this song description) when it is ready. You can visit the web site of the free software here (http://mac.povray.org/)... but it is not all that easy to use. I'm doing the same thing for my much more ambitious "Fractal Serenity" music video.

techno-flamenco?
It actually kind of rolls off the tongue. Like your wife, I'd love to hear the guitar sound as an intro - along with the break in the middle, and i wouldn't mind hearing some mix of the boppy synth with the guitar in there, too. I love your idea of 'Return of the Technoids' Hmmm - wouldn't that make it a trilogy? I really enjoy this style. Takes me back to "the olden days when I was a kid" (That's a quote from one of my 3rd graders.)

Blendomatic technoflamenco
I'm very surprised and pleased at how well they go tegether... so as soon as I get the video finished I will have to go back and revisit this (yes you counted better than I) and make the THIRD in the trilogy... or actually, if it is like HitchHiker's guide, it would really be the 4th in the trilogy... since this came from a 30 second snippet piece that was the genesis for this. It would be funny to post the original short sketch piece itself, so people could hear how far it came. Or not. Anyway, thank you as always for offering your thoughts about what I'm up to! I'm always glad to see you stop by. I will definitely be thinking about threading more guitarwork through this soon. But as you will soon see, this version works perfectly as is for the upcoming video.

You know Victor, reading your comment just made my day... good thing my office door was closed, people would have wondered what all the giggling and snickering was about! Ahem, OK, I've regained some composure. Some of it is due to being madly in love. Some of it is my life-long optimistic view of the world (optimist = life is so great, that it can only get worse, right?) Anyway, yes, this is complete silly fluff... sometimes I need to just let go and do silly fluff. I promise to return to my normal brooding dark mysterious self soon. Heehee.

Hi Doug, thank you for stopping in to the Technoid Lounge. Sit back and have a drink (uh, no, not that green one!

Time machine....
and I am being carried to the 80s! This has pure funk pop eurobeat vibe to it that is urging me to get out of my seat... then I am mellowed by that spanish guitar in the middle that you throw in... like a sedative coolness... then it gets right back to the vibrant vibe you got going from the start... whew... love the understated guitar that makes this all the more euro-poppish.... My only pick: too short...extend this... add a few more build up instruments and maybe a touch more bass and get some hot smoking vocals on it to complete it. This has the makings of a hit, dude!

Hey Leon, thanks for transporting backward with us! Ian's guitar break is really nice... and yes, I'll redo this and make it a bouncy long romping good time. I've never been good at figuring out where to put vox though, we'll see if singing fits in here anywhere... I sort of like the idea of more flamboyant guitar work sprinkled in... I may be a couple decades late for this to be a "hit", but you never know. I hear that bell bottoms and platform shoes are coming back into style again :-)

Drak,
this is a very cool vibe you have here. Makes me want to get up and dance. I personally would like more of Ian's guitar, it works so well, I wanted to hear more of it. The tune could use a bit more bass too, I think. And the ending...I dunno, it sounds...well, too cute for my blood. But that's just me probably. I know it sounds like I'm making a lot of suggestions here but they're all minor. I really enjoyed listening to this. Can't wait to see the finished video.

drakonis said 3816 days ago (February 7th, 2007)
Poifect!
J2, Brute? You know, this is EXACTLY the kind of constructive critique I love, thank you! I am carefully cataloging all the suggestions, and definitely appreciate you listening and taking time to comment on what you like/don't like! The ending was a bit rushed and cutesy, I agree. Will fix that. More bass, I turned up the bass a little more from the original, but will add more "ground bass" powder, check! Longer... check. More guitar, check! OK, I think I have a lot to work on now, but its good stuff! The video will likely have this shorter version, since I've already laid out the storyboard and started calculating what goes where. But I may work on the ending and upping the bass before releasing the video. Then after the video, I will revamp this into a monster alien abduction dance number. :-) Thank you again for your thoughts, they are appreciated and very helpful!

Since the bombastic is my thing, i have a lot respect for the smoothness of this song and the gentle river this song represents to me. Excellent production skills, u took nuff time i think. I wouldnt however categorize it as techno, it is game music.
drakonis said 3814 days ago (February 9th, 2007)
Technoid game
Hmm... maybe you are correct. Especially with the square-wave lead synthesizer sound, and the baroque arpeggios, this does sound very arcade-game-like (after all, the song "Popcorn" got used in Pengo and other computer games, I learned.) So I will change its Genre, thanks! Also glad to give you a softer river of sound to float in for a bit, or for at least 8 bits... thank you for stopping in to listen. I am working madly on the video, hopefully a couple more weeks and it will be all the rage on Youtube, NOT!

Pengo RULES. Very addictive tune in it. I always try to get Boards of Canada and Last Ninja to shake hands....ahum
Btw, Boulderdash was a cool game as well.

Over and over...
Ed,
Another driving rhythm from your pen. Your music always has such vitality to it and that's what makes it engaging. I guess you use a lot of drum loops, huh? I wonder what would happen if you turned them off and just went for it on your own %u2014 kind of a commando run at it! You've certainly got the drive down and I'd love to hear you move to "more territory." Sure is always fun to listen to your work.

Developing territory
Hi Paul, Yes, this piece started out as lots of drum loops, which is not my thing, but it was an experiment in new territory. Glad you like the melodic hook, and yes yes yes... I really need to study and practice more music theory, so I can break out of my rut of just playing an ABAB tune, and move on to development sections! I am only this year starting to learn more about that and will be trying it. I hope you'll see me succeed in creating more variety and interest in the middle of my pieces finally, as I completely agree with you, they lack that.

Bouncy and fun
As the genre goes, it's not my bag (baby) but I can definitely appreciate the craftsmanship that went into this one. The piece was already pretty well put together, and, unlike others, I like the appearance of the guitar in the middle. Opinions may be like you-know-whats, but here's mine anyway: instead of adding guitar at the front and back, I say keep the introduction right where it is, just bring it back again at the end for a proper send-off and some even higher-flying intertwining of old-school and new-school. Then again, I think it's pretty happening as it is. The rough draft video is weirdly (e before i) entrancing, too ... between Bonka's classic videos and this, will MacJams need a video link thingie soon?

Great work, guys. Especially excellent job by eanbardsley, for hearing something most others wouldn't!
drakonis said 3810 days ago (February 13th, 2007)
super thanks
Hi Mike, I always wish to hear your take on things... and I appreciate you listening and commenting, even if it isn't your style of music (I often have a tough time in that regard too.) So, a vote for more guitar intertwining at the end, that sounds good. Glad you checked out my unusual (avoids I/E controversy) eye-candy video too. Now, stop goofing off on the computer and pay attention to that great family of yours! :-)

Hi Jack, thank you for sailing by and listening in. I am so happy Ian picked up on the Spanish vibe, then played some for me here, this is much more fun with his guitar work in it!

Catchy!
Catchy little number, Eduard. You're right, it's very much like a computer game at the beginning of the track. I can imagine the little man jumping over the crocodiles and getting a bonus for stomping on their heads! That drum kit is sooooooo early '80s!! What a laugh.

Somehow that Spanish guitar works in there. I don't know how - it's a strange mix - but it sounds good!

Nice changes to keep you interested. Great ending too; finishes the track off very nicely.

Some of the "piano" chords sound a little off-key to me. I wonder if the 5ths, 7ths or 9ths you've used sometimes don't match up to the melody or the bass? I've had about 6 listens but can't work it out. Maybe my ears are just tired!

Great to hear something so retro. Makes me wanna try something similar. Kudos!!

drakonis said 3809 days ago (February 14th, 2007)
Perfect...
Great feedback, thank you Simon! Loved the little arcade game in your head there... yes, this is very retro. Ian's guitar is so strangely at home in there, must be my love for Spanish chord progressions sneaking in when I wasn't watching. Another vote FOR the ending, OK, got it. And as for the piano accompaniment sometimes hitting off-notes... that very well may be in there. I admit to loading up a bunch of chords & copy/pasting (poor-man's loops) to fill out some of those bars, and I should have gone back to analyze the notes against the base chord, I bet there are a few that I didn't transpose right, or should be removed! Very very good ear, exactly what I am interested in finding out... thank you very much for stopping in and commenting. I sincerely appreciate it, and your music.

another analoguessness...
...complete with animated twirling capacitors & resistors in tiny pink tu-tus, cramming up the circuit board....too cute.
I would have liked to hear more of the flamenco guitar, perhaps @ the end just to give the piece a little more 'balance', but that's jusy my opinion.
I can hardly wait to see the video!
Many Thanks1

analog daze...
Ah, you remind me of my early teens, building sawtooth oscillator circuits in the garage, flicking solder off the soldering iron onto my shoes, the sweet smell of burning flux... except I never put tu-tus on my electrolytic capacitors. Thank you for the retro-hardware reminiscent smirk! Yes, I intend to write a longer version of this, with more development, and more guitar at the end... but the video must come first. Funny, while my wife and I spent 4 days on a getaway vacation, I uh, spent lots of time in the room at the resort, uh, working on the last math calculations for this video (am I a geek or what?)

I was delighted when Ian's guitar-work melted so nicely over this. Hopefully you'll peek at the accompanying music video when it comes out on Youtube soon (with slight lengthening-tweaks to this music.)

Hey, welcome to Macjams, and glad you stumbled upon this strange time-machine flashback-piece of mine. Funny, but I've never been much of a gamer, so I don't know much about this genre... must have picked it up subliminally. Thanks for commenting, and I'll be watching for your "nutty" humor soon.

really. i still don't know why. it's in the first 20 seconds - some song of hers must have had a certain sound or melodic motif... it's tantalizing me. i'm on tenterhooks.

(often i don't know why i make the associations i do - it's been that way for as long as can i remember. i guess i've gotten mostly used to it by now, but at times like this, it drives me to distraction.)

this is why i feel synchronicity is a real thing. or else i'm marginally insane. actually, that last statement would explain a lot of things. hmmm...

Too good..
.. to be a parody, this is cracking Drak, and took me back to my days in the Arcades playing space invaders. But then you sneakily add in the flamenco, which gives it a whole different dimension.

This is so catchy we should create antibodies to ward it off.

you just made me smile from ear to ear! Thanks! (Ow, that hurts!) These little tunes just pop into my brain sometimes, and then I ignore them for years (as seen here) then learn some more about how to write music, and then tweak and craft them into... well, this. This one is strange, because I'm not sure what part of my brain it came from, I don't normally write music like this, but it seems to work... and Ian's guitar was complete icing on the cake. And everyone wants more icing!

Cool track Drak!
I usually like your work, Drak, but I'm really taken by this one. Nice melodies, beats and arrrangement. Hehe! ...and the artwork is awsome too. I liked the unexpected "guitar". It made for a very nice listen. It does have an old-school feel to it.....kind of reminds me of those specials they used to have on PBS. Remember the TV show Cosmos with Carl Segan? It reminds me a little of the music they would play during certain parts of that show. When we would be in our galactic cruiser, shooting through the galaxy, exploring fantastic new worlds amongst billions & billions of stars! Great work, my big blue friend! Peace!

Hey, thank you for listening and commenting! Of all people, I'm glad it passed *your* listening-test. Hope you get a chance to peek at the video too (linked from the description.) Yes, I remember Sagan's Cosmos series, but just barely remember the synth music. Maybe my "alien" video was spurred by some restless subconscious Sagan influence, walled up in a mental basement somewhere, still beating to get out... like a telltale heart. :-)

Click...click...click...
I just realized I commented on the music video announcement thread but not here. Even though this has an old-school sound, I can totally hear it in one of those Japanese import games for the Nintendo DS, like "Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney" or something. It's exactly the kind of thing that accompanies the dramatic courtroom scenes. As an entry in the "game soundtrack" genre I actually think there's just the right amount of guitar in here. Now I gotta pull out my DS and play!

What an intriguing comparison... I've not played any of those little handheld game thingies, so I guess I'm missing out on some cool music. A little snooping shows me that Masakazu Sugimori wrote the music, and the CD of the music is available in Japan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phoenix_Wright:_Ace_Attorney). So, am I in the wrong industry? I should be writing game music? Thank you for stopping in and giving me another fun connection!

Glad you found it, again! And I'm happy this tickles your baroque instincts. I am sure the DVD I'm making of this video will be compared to the "Animusic" DVDs that are out there. I'm happy to say that although many of their scenes are more elaborate than mine, the computer graphics in mine is higher quality than theirs (more realistic looking.) And the Youtube mini version doesn't do it justice... the full-screen DVD is pretty mind blowingly delicious. Thanks for checking this out and enjoying my funny little corner of music-space!

Technoids!
This is one of the MacJams songs that I keep coming back to on a regular basis. In fact it is so good that in my mind it has become the absolute standard of perfection for an electropop song on MJ. In fact a few minutes ago I was telling the poster of a new electropop song, "This reminds me of Dance of the Technoids by fellow MacJammer Drakonis. That's about the best complement I can make about an electropop song."

Welcome back
Good to see you back, and thank you for listening and commenting! Jarre, wow, that's a compliment! This is one of the things I like about this place, is getting suggestions of new music to go listen to! I've heard almost nothing from him, so I will go look for this album and see what the similarities are, thank you! Pleased that you liked it... don't forget to see the Youtube 3D music video I made for this too, just for fun!
ttfn,
Drakonis

side-scrollers...
Although I wrote a few computer games in my lifetime, I never was much into playing them, but I have to admit I played a few... (but not the one you mention.) I bet if I downgraded the synths to junky 8-bit square waves, it would probably sound EXACTLY like some computer game music, I should try that! And, don't forget to click the link in the description and watch the THREE-D music video I made with this music too :-) Thanks for checking out my baroque-blippy-side!

Bouncy goodness
Sometimes that's just what we need. Glad to offer you a recurring spoonful of Technoids! Much better than Altoids.

stunning
This is definitely not a game track ... but a seductive 80s retro pop (Jarre, early Oldfield maybe...). Makes me feel nostalgic. It must be hard for you to get these oldies sounds I guess? I am glad there is someone who dares to use these sounds again ... I felt transfered into my childhood :))) Thanks!

Good to visit childhood now and then
There were some great musicians back then, and the older synth sounds were quite catchy. I'm happy to have brought some of that back for you. I had a real guitarist play the middle section there, Ian did so nicely (and I got to go meet him at his house after this!) I hope you also watched the computer animation video I made with this, that was fun to make too.

It is funny, many people have mentioned Jarre after listening to some of my pieces, but I don't own ANY of his work, and have heard very little. It must be that 1/3 French gene in me :-)

ttfn,
Drakonis
