Liner Notes: 

This barely qualifies as making music, since I'm just the button pusher. Nonetheless, here ya go!

This is mostly being posted as a test of exporting from iPhone GB file to Dropbox, on to conversion into MP3 via Zamzar, back to Dropbox for a shared link. Thought I'd do this to see if I can skirmish away from my home base PC. Part of the luxury of 50/90 is finding new processes!

Lyrics: 

(Bleep bloop, chirp chirp chirp)



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

First of all, not everybody can push buttons with such a finesse as you do. Smile And secondly, GB hardly came up with that memorable title. This music sounds 100 % electro barbie. It fits. So, very well done, Barbara!

I'm kind of jealous that I've had GB on my phone for a year or two... or three? and still haven't done a single darn thing with it. It's definitely making music. Yes, it qualifies. And it's cool. I love those bass stabs in the low keys near the end. I like this side of you. I wanna hear more.

For what it's worth, pushing buttons still requires skill. Skill in the form of knowing how music works, in knowing how to craft a soundscape, in knowing how to express emotions through music, in knowing how to do all of this with a piece of software, and in knowing how to edit it later... It's a different type of skill to, say, playing guitar, sure... But a skill nonetheless. And you definitely have skill in this area.

This was a mighty fine song! I really enjoyed it, and am kind of jealous, to be honest. :P

This is fun. Very dance/pop sounding. Nadia you want to move and puts you in a good mood. GB is a powerful tool. You can do all sorts of things with it. I should try to learn it better.

Your liner notes could be the lyrics to this. Smile

Did the same conversion except via iTunes. Interesting sets of loops, beats, and buttons :). I love the experimentation. A song is a song is a song. Dance 4

Whether you're pushing buttons or keys or strings onto a fretboard, it's still music. And you're making decisions about the dynamics of what's going on - which is very evident when the piano comes in. Slick production and an enjoyable groove. Keep pushing those buttons Biggrin

This has got a cool electro vibe - slightly soundtrack-y and that piano coming in would be the signal for something pretty dramatic to happen.

I love when the piano drops! That really made my brain go "weeeeee!" This is a lot of fun. I clicked because of the title and stayed because... fun!
