I Don't Like You

Liner Notes: 

Another part of my one-minute song series. This was made up in about 20 minutes.
The piano was recorded via MIDI in Mixcraft 8, and I'm using the Alter/Ego VST plugin in my DAW to "sing" the lyrics (which are sparse). Toward the end, the piano is treated with hard delay (left channel). The song is mostly in 4/4, but when it gets to the E chord it switches to 7/4 for one bar.


I don't like you.
There's nothing else I can say or do.

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


I get it, it works, like it.

It's interesting to see/hear your stuff progress... remembering other, fawm too, -- and class work (as music student?)... and etc.

A nice experimental piece of music. The dismissive lyrics match the dissonant feeling of the piano chords. Smile

The title drew me in, as well as remembering your name from last year.
Also the AlterEgo tag; love me some that.
Interesting piece; you nail the concept of dissonance.
Kudos on your idea of the one-minute song series.
This reminds me of those silent film piano soundtracks that would intensify to express the emotion on-screen...as if someone were finally getting up the nerve to tell someone that "I don't like you", and its a very dramatically delivered performance with your piano piece communicating that.
Also, its so cool to hear "Bones"!
Kudos, fellow AlterEgo'er!

Love it! How refreshing to hear someone sing it out loud. The treatment of the vocal was really cool-- that perfectly placed flutelike break.
