Thank you, that's very sweet of you. Although I DID refer to this project as a debut album, I really meant a debut production LP. I've done 2 production EP's before that under the name CLXCKWXRK. I'm overjoyed that you've enjoyed the tape.>>593
You're probably right; although, to be honest, I didn't intentionally pursue a Yume Nikki vibe on this record at all by any means; I did that on Untitled 2 and was kind of done with it afterwards. I guess Yume Nikki'esque themes keep reappearing in my CXWX stuff because I really love that game, haha. As for the instrumental hip-hop scheme, I'm assuming you're referring to me composing 4 by 4 music? I definitely see your point, I was just sort of going for that whole clockwork type of repetitive progression flow or whatever, you know?
Also, by the ending track, are you referring to nyanwxrk? It's a shame that you didn't find it to your lking, as I really enjoyed making it. I find that people underestimate the complexity of the original nyancat piece, and so I had decided to compose my own personal arrangement. I started off with an 8bit direction and built towards a swift orchestral switch-up; the outro was supposed to represent a GAME OVER screen I suppose… I don't know, that's what I was aiming for at least.
Oh and one MORE thing [sorry for such an essay-like response -.-'], but could you be a bit more specific in regards to me using "generic" feeling sounds?
Thank you both for taking the time to listen and for giving me feedback, I really appreciate it.
