See The Positive

See The Positive

Liner Notes: 

I decided to play the creative whack pack challenge @Pearlmanhattan posted. I got a card "See the positive". Basically about seeing past the new and weird and scary and potentially negative stuff, and see the positives - it may give you a completely different feeling about stuff.
To emphasize the weird and "i'm not sure how I feel about that" feeling, I used my robo voice thing and gave the intro an uneasy-but-not-completely vibe; its like the robots are telling a human to give them a chance, to look past all the usual fears and anxiety about technology and maybe they'll become friends.
I dunno lol
Intro made up of a bunch of whirring and beeping and stuff with a lead up.
I wanted a busy rhythm so I layered a bunch of different kits and interlaced some rhythms. I picked a rhythmic gated pad and some sparkly eletricy computery arpeggio stuff to sprinkle about.
Used my synthvox to sing what the robovoice was saying.
I wanted something positive to say and I feel that these simple lyrics convey that, yes? No?
Anyway, hope somebody gets some good vibes from it.


I know it does not feel good
But try to see past the negative
And once you open your eyes
I hope you will see the positive

You are a good human being
You should not bear the negative
Reach within your wonderful mind
And focus on the positive

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Compu-mecha-funkpunk at its finest, all herky-jerky and strange but also with a solid rhythmic core. Your synthivoices sound swell, and the words have meaning in this computer age. A unique creation, and also utterly cool.

Probably my fav if yours so far. Very full complete song. Interesting changes all the way through. Kept me interested all the way.
