insect politics

“Have you ever heard of insect politics? Neither have I. Insects… don’t have politics. They’re very… brutal. No compassion, no compromise. We can’t trust the insect. I’d like to become the first… insect politician. Y'see, I’d like to, but… I’m afraid, uh… I’m saying… I’m saying I - I’m an insect who dreamt he was a man and loved it. But now the dream is over… and the insect is awake. I’m saying… I’ll hurt you if you stay.” - Brundlefly

(This is more or less how all of my romantic relationships end.)

Finally got this one mixed. This is ‘Insect Politics’. I have just pulled an all-nighter to get it finished. I started to do a rough master on it, but all it took was a single hardware failure at 4:30am to cause me to loose patience. I will master it soon though.

Originally I started working on as part of my dissertation project, but I scrapped it, and so it mutated into what you hear now.

It’s supposed to sound weird, but hopefully in a good way :D

All of the synths apart from the melo section near the end I made and programmed myself in Pure Data, the others are free VSTis I downloaded. With the Pure Data synths, they are using a pre-existing MIDI track, but with the non-PD synths it’s all my own dodgy keyboard skills.

Enjoy! And let me know what you think!
