The challenge: make a song in 5 minutes.

The result: Failure

I did manage to slap something together in 8 minutes and 14 seconds - thus the title 494 (seconds). All loops, no vocals - just sound FX.

I just grabbed the first loops that came up in each search. This is the result.

Hey Cipher.

You may be disappointed in it, but I think it's kind of neat. I especially find it interesting how you mixed war FX with laughing. Are you saying that war is funny? Or are you laughing at the futility of it all? Hmmmm. makes you wonder.

All in all, I think 8 min 14 sec well spent.

Thanks for the listen
To clarify, I think war is one of the worst things there is and certainly not funny in the least.

The laughter juxtaposed with gunfire is the mad cackling of a warmonger. The kind of man who would justify killing in the name of whatever he hold sacred - be it money, power or simple bloodlust.

I think it is important to beat around the Bush.

Not bad at all. Very cool. Amazing that you could do it in under 10 minutes. Good going.

I beg to differ, it may not be polished to your standards, but its a great trancy, ambient number. I can't even boot up in 5 minutes :-)
