WARNING THIS GETS A BIT LOUD PAST THE HALFWAY POINT.
This piece is based off a rhythm game I used to play. I used the CFA Oxygen25 MIDI piano to play my notes, and tuned it manually to fix mistakes, and then quantized to make it stay consistent and fit the beat. I manually made the guitar rhythm, bass, drum beat, and the xylophone melody all with this tool. I followed the concepts of layering, starting off with rhythm you will hear throughout the duration and a lower bassline. Then connected through a drum intro, the melody and basic drum beat comes in and everything fits together. I chose my tempo (100bpm) in accordance to the melody, which I felt sounded the best and gave the effect I wanted at that speed. The basic form is then AB, as I transition from 1 basic part to another.
