Your Own Keen Music!

Post by Toomuchsparetime » Thu Jun 13, 2019 8:43

I didn't see a thread for this, so here it is now! Post your own remixes and Keen-related musical compositions here.

I'll start because I just made this while learning to use Ableton. (It's the 2nd thing I've made in it.) It's an "Eat Your Vegetables" remake. ... bles-remix :dopekeen

That was fun, TMST! I have to say, the clipped releases of the melody's first few notes combined with the already short duration of the bass/marimba accompaniment made those particular few seconds sound hokey, but the rest of the composition was fun to listen to. :) Thanks for sharing!

Heehee... That was great! Do another if you have so much spare time. >:
The chords at 0:43 feel like the song could be taken into one of those far-out never-ending jazz tangents. Love it when the wild sawtooth appears. You'll have to swing by my place to give me Ableton lessons once you deem yourself pro.

I also did a thing for this thread because it needs more replies. :helmet

I dig it. The beginning has maybe kind of a detective vibe.

I did a couple of Keen remixes years ago but I think I already posted 'em here at some point. Or if not here then on a previous version of the forum...

Excellent postings. Have nothing to offer right now. I think I once made a horrible, crudely overdubbed version of Fribbulous Xax music on cassettes when I was ten, on my violin, tin whistle and, uh, some percussion. I doubt it still exists.

Pretty damn sweet tune, that.

Violin you say, Benvolio? I can't compose digitally but perhaps I could whip up something with my violin now you've given me the idea...
