I was sucked in when the plucked strings came in at 1:12. This tune has very unexpected twists and turns. It definitely has a soundtrackish vibe to it. Love the combination of the military snares and plucked strings.

Wow this track is all over the place - in a good way :D

Certainly kept the interest and excitement up until the end.
Fast snails though :hihi:

In musical perspective, my very first compose of March of Kittens came from the avant garde style electronic music as you already have guessed very correctly.

It has beats, It has schoenberg, It has Xenakis, It has very early days of classical electronic music, It has chords, It has Jazz, I just wanted put everything but since it is Korean Traditional Music in its core you probably wouldn't guessed its originality.

In Korean Culture, it is called a HAN means sorrow because we were so hungry we lost our beloved ones so korean people works very hard to get money and teach children never lose beloved ones because of this some stupid money thing.

Your music was actually musically very good because you didn't even read my explanation and you nailed it. very well done sir my friend.


And this is where it all started for me, Korean Traditional Avant-garde music...

This one started out with some "typical" layzer sounds - the Akai bass and the pads, but soon evolved into quite a different animal. Then we had some uncharacteristically rapid, almost frantic, melodic elements. I especially enjoyed the last section where we were treated to some great '80s style JMJ touches. Very enjoyable.

Good work :)

Excellent twists and turns. Love the squeaky synth... And the grand synth and drums towards the end. Nice melodies... Great! :)

Nice track! I really like the transition in this too. The melody that kicks in from 3:30 and onward is very powerful and definitely one of my favorite parts because it works very well with the marching rhythm.
