March of the Batterwitch

This is one of my submissions to the Homestuck album contest.

As a theme for Betty Crocker, the piano intro is meant to evoke an image of the batterwitch scheming in her kitchen. As the song evolves, I tried to conjure the image of her walking outside to look upon her army of drones, marching into battle.

I ran out of time, but I was planning to add an ambient wash of kitchen sounds that I recorded to complement the piano solo. I’ve been informed that I’ll be allowed to make such changes before the final album version if this song is accepted.

The sentry’s dead.  Our worm is lost.

This is an updated and improved version of “Funeral for a Worm,” a dirge for Sentry Worm.  I had a go at submitting it as my third entry (before it ended, ofc), so we’ll see if Toby accepts it (not that it matters either way, really).

As previously noted, this is a remix of Explore by George Buzinkai.
