Description
I kept thinking of spiders as I was composing this one. So there you have it.

If you like it, I'd recommend one of my other upbeat songs, "Rama."

arachnophilia
a prog-ression of electronica spiders fan out in search of the portamento-firefly, which shows up on cue and creates quite a light show. What a grand piece... has a bit of early ELP glistening on your web here. Dazzling and delicious.

And you as well, Karen! It feels great to be in the "studio" again...if you consider a keyboard dragged over by the computer in the basement surrounded by toys a studio...he he.

The Evolution of Spiders
I love when people post music built around mallet instruments. Through 1:12 the piece if very acoustic in nature and organic sounding. I love the big synths at 1:34. The cascading piano figures are very nice. Then back to mallet heaven. A very enjoyable listen!

Coming from someone who currently has SIX 'hot' songs in his repertoire, I consider that a high compliment!!

This really well structured
nice development and use of different voices. 1:36 really kicks butt - nice way to step it up. Ditto hitting the old school synth line shortly after. It's really hard to make the analogue sounds work this well.

I like how the song evolves into something very cool, maybe like a game soundtrack for a puzzle solving adventure. hehe just my imagination ;)

Spiders
Cool song, well done! It's got a movie soundtrack vibe to it (perhaps because of the mallets?) mixed with funk and electronics. I kept waiting for the excellent 1:34-part to come back though.

Nice build up in this song. Kinda has a disco xylophone sound. Rock on girl.

I'm not sure the phrase "disco xylophone" has ever been used in history before. I consider that a great compliment! ;-) Thanks for listening!

Beautiful
I love the sound of marimbas, you have used them really well in this. The pitch blended pad at the start is great. Percussion and synth sounds are really good, I especially like the way you bring in the big meaty ones.

Once again, I'm really impressed with a piece of music you have made. Fantastic, great voices, and right up my street. I wish it was longer!

Downloaded, with thanks.

For some reason I have a really hard time going above the 2-3 minute mark. It's a weird mental block I'm not sure how to overcome! But I will try if I know people would actually listen to 5 or more minutes of my humble music.

Cool evolution
of this piece. At times I can really see that well designed monster in the pic reflected in the sawtooth synths. The analog instruments dominate though and then I see the Forbidden Forest (@Hogwarts) with hordes of spiders all over the place. I do prefer the music however. Much more beautiful and not half as scary ;-)

Thanks for sharing!

Hi Erin.....
I think the progression of your choice of sounds works really well in this piece. I was surprised with the start. Wasn't expecting that sound but everything turned out, to me, really well. I could see where you were coming from once I had finished listening to the piece.

Great ideas throughout.

Take care.

Thank you very much, Paul! It was supposed to progress from the more 'primitive' instruments to the more space-agey ones. I think you got it! Thanks for visiting!!

My spidey sense is telling me...
...I really dig this tune! Sure does sound spidery! You have a great sense of what should happen and when it should happen. I was picturing spiders bopping around plucking the strings of their webs along with the song. I could also see it used in a National Geographic piece about spiders. Great job!

It's just a theory
Totally ... totally ... cool. It would have worked just fine if you had maintained the feel set by the opening. But then it takes off. Really like that. I mean this in the most complimentary way possible --- it reminds me of Animusic music. Don't know if you're familiar with that but it's all over the youtube. Check it out! Love this work.

I loooove Animusic! I bought the DVDs for my dad a couple of years ago but we watch them more than he does because my son is obsessed with them. That is very sweet of you to say!

The Evolution of Spiders
Evolution in the title and in the piece as new instruments are introduced and things build. This would sound very natural as a backing track for a video game.

Video games have some of the best music around these days, so I take that as a very high compliment. Hope all is well with you!

The Evolution ...
Glad to hear a new piece from you. The way you develop the sounds and rhythms together with some nice harmonies is marvelous! The part where some heavy bass synths enter and melt into the piano solo is terrific. Great job!
thnx

I Agree With Tobin
It starts off sounding a lot like Philip Glass / Steve Reich (http://youtu.be/hpRk-6jw8p4). Good stuff.

By the way, I loved reading "Rendezvous With Rama" as a teenager.

Funny...
...how the entire time this track played all I could picture was a bunch of little spiders diligently spinning webs and such. Gotta love musical imagery! I really liked the different percussions going on, they really set a great tone for the rest of the intruments to come in. Stellar piano melody coming in around 1:48! The saw synth that follows it after is nice but sounds a bit out of sync to me from 2:05 to 2:08. (Lol, picky right?) Cool tune for sure, and I'll trade you...my problem is keeping songs under 5 mins because I want to use every melody and lead I come up with :/

Keep these coming!

Spiders
The love that bit around 1:50 - it rises up above the rest of the action with a wonderful clarity, then followed by a Wakemanesque synth with lots of portamento. Tres cool all the way through.

Great rhythm and timing of the marimba! I love the wind instrument part. This would go great in a documentary about spiders in Discovery channel. At 2:04 reminds me a lot like Vangelis early work.
