I hope you play this with a REAL 6581, it totally sucks with emulation! This is a short, and hopefully energetic tune and my humble contribution to the Winter Chip-compo.To hear how it SHOULD sound, you can download the recorded mp3 at http://monk.jossain.com/Energy_Dive.mp3

hm, for some reason the Ene and rgy seems to have a space, when in fact it shouldn't have one. I am SURE I didn't typo it this time! So the word is Energy_Dive.mp3, not Ene rgy ...

Thank you, thank you. I drew the avatar myself. I was considering making a 125x125 avatar but haven't got round to it yet so I am using this 80x80 avatar here.. that was originally meant for another forum.

And thanks for commenting on my tune .. !

This song really comes together. It's not the sort of thing I would usually like, and yet it's one of my favs. Great work.

Only if you're the guy who made "Fusion of dragons" with the hardsid and those others then you should know. :)

Hey, =monk=, I thought I would just stain your track's page with my annoying avatar! ;P
Your track is very innovative! The kick on the 1 and the snare on 3 is rock solid. You must have searched all the cultures of 5 seperate continents to find that beat.
I bow to your awesomeness.
But, seriously, we need people like you around to try and influence our mindsets. Some of us fools think you can make any kind of music with a chip. Now I am aware of my ignorance.
Thank you! ;P

Well.. uh.. thanks, I guess. I am not sure I understood most of that. I think you were mocking me for using 4/4 and a simple drum .. but I rather put ENERGY in music than complicated beats or stuff .. concentrating on those things would make me put less energy in the song itself. And anyway, my main point in making music is melody anyway .. so I usually just create some kind of background so I can compose some nice melody. And this song is not about complicated beats - I have tried all kinds of different rhythms and comps and beats in my time, and I have arrived to simplicity after all that complication that wasn't really improving my songs energetically or even musically anyway .. So I don't care if I use cliches in the basslines or simple beats as long as I get ENERGY and nice melody involved in a song.

Argh, that avatar is really a stain, as you said :) Can't stand it!!

You see, sometimes "making any kind of music with a chip" can be considered trickery, which always leads away from the path of love and soul that can be put in a production. When you pour your finest self in a production, then there's really something magical about it, no matter what musicstyle it represents. But if you concentrate too much on the style, you get distracted and miss the energy and can't really put your finest self in it anymore...

But it's this time of materialism that people have forgotten the energy, wisdom and soul .. and they just try to please others with all kinds of materialistic manipulation of stuff .. I don't care so much for effects or instruments or beats - I only care what _I_ think is important for the creation. Soul/Energy is always first, then melody .. then the rest. This tune was made half-jokingly, out of pure joy and fun and some inspiring experimentation ... I hope you can hear it from the tune.

So, ==Monk==, what you are saying is that all the tracks that "aren't really your thing" were made by people with uninspired souls and they make up for it with style? And then you leave negative feedback so you can materialisticly manipulate their future productions into sounding more like Euro-chip-techno from the 90's?
Sorry -- I'm stuck back here in the duality of man while you are spiritualy light years ahead in transcendance -- I apologize!
haah ah a hahah
i like messing with you
you and that dark aura of yours....
You listen to a lot of <a href="http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=11:igfe4jo70waq">Cecil Taylor</a>, don't you?
