Digital

This came in 3rd for SounDevotion Competition Round 100!

Digital owns my soul
It’s with me everywhere I go
I tell it everything I know
Digital won’t let me go

I tried my best to make this with all the time I had available because this round is so special. The chopped breaks use random sample layer and Yxx so, as with similar entries, the drums will not play the same way twice.

Lead vocal by Megpoid Gumi: www.ssw.co.jp/en/products/vocal3/megpoid/

with additional vocals (Ahh and such) by Momone Momo: momonemomo.com/

I’ll make an extended version later based on comments and suggestions.

In Heaven’s Hands

This won SounDevotion Competition round 98!

It doesn’t seem as bad when tragedies repeat
Inside your world, the wonders never cease
Because tonight we will find our peace in Heaven’s hands

Waiting patiently at home, you take me to your world
Where I can make a difference, and together we will grow
I can’t help what happens outside anyway
I wish they would all go away
These problems don’t bother us

I’ve wanted to make a song with this title for some time. I wanted the song to be about using video game escapism to hide from a crumbling family life, with focus on the way it feels instead of preaching and being overtly nostalgic.

This song was mostly constructed from SNES and N64 Legend of Zelda samples.

I haven’t made a song like this for a while.

For those who don’t get the reference: nin = inside; ten = heaven/sky; do = hand/technique/method
