Here are two themes for the hitRECord adaptation of the Piped Piper story. Metaphorest’s take on the story was particularly inspring, and that combined with sojushot’s illustration and and LoFidelity’s animation.
I like the idea that Piper has a simple dream to receive recognition as a great performer, if even its just from rats. So in my musical telling of the story, I tried to capture two ideas… first, his concerto performance which leads the rats away… and then a introspective performance, which I call “The Magic Melody”. I imagine that this is a secret melody that actually gives him his powers. It would interesting for someone expand the story into how he came to discover the melody (perhaps handed down).
THEMES: 1. Plight of the Piper 2. The Magic Melody
READ THIS THREAD, there are some really cool ideas developing from LoFidelity, SojuShots, and Metaphorest. Mirtle has also made an album....
...okay, here's the high res version. I have to give a big hitRECordian shoutout to James Witcher Films for rendering the full 1080p version, which was too big to upload as mov. This mp4 should work nicely for remixes though. Enjoy!
Some of the resource titles are not coming up in the search, so for a complete list... visit
Just the music...
THEMES INCLUDED 1: Time Travel to Post-Apocalyptic future 2: Main Theme, Voyager Appears 3: Seduction Theme 4: Voyager Delivers Message 5: Time Travel Back to Save Humanity
...here's an orchestral suite of musical themes inspired by several images form the Shadow Caste collaboration. I will reference them and perhaps you can tell which goes with which. This was a lot of fun, to make this... looking forward to dong more.
....there's one record I can't find, the one about Umbreo. But yeah... that idea inspired the last movement especially.
...another old piece. Circa 2007. But I thought we could have some fun with it... since everybody's vocals, and I'm adding piano to vocals... here's my vocals... with me on piano.
I know I'm late... but I just like discovered Joe's song "Words We're Wailing", watching the videos from the last shows. Poignant.
Either way, I hadn't originally intended to put vocals at the beginning of this. But after one too many frustrating takes, I just ended singing to calm down. And I decided to keep it with the piano rendition that followed. Enjoy the arrangment.
Okay, here's two cues for the Blue Dildo collab per request of the Regularity himself. Hopefully this works.
Ummm, just a few notes: this is mean to spliced, for the love letter, animation/dildo reveal, and it could also work for the stalker in the house... the very last rock out was added just because :) (End credits maybe).... enjoy!
Shout out to chigwinkle, though not inlcuded in the track, the love cue was scored to first take of his voice overs.
I'm defintely open to adjusting this... for visuals or whatever. I'm too happy with the mix, but my ears are rocked out so... LOL... this'll do for the now. Call it the first draft.
