Liner Notes: 

I saw the prompt for the skirmish I missed today and did set out to try and do a disco piece in an hour, it got just slightly off the rails Biggrin While definitely not my favorite style of music there are lots of things about disco I do appreciate, but I'm a music lover so you'd be hard pressed to find a piece of music I wouldn't at least find something I liked about.

All the "guitar" is done on a disc of sorts, does that make it disco? Biggrin that thanks to @Jibbidy34 I think I have cristened the disheridoo


Indecipherable anti-disco and pro slothcore jibberish, marked NSFW just to be on the safe side. It got a little saucy

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

WoW! What an aural journey! This was cool! Could see it being used in a vid game or soundtrack!

Like the production!!

All kinds of juicy tasty yummy stuff. Those hihats after the pauses were just magic too. Again puts me in mind of Fire Walk With Me. Great stuff. Smile

no rhythmic accents in disco, which is what makes it so boring and you have here corrected, rescuing disco from itself. you tricked me with those long rests but i checked the clock and learned patience. this may be your finest expression of slothcore. the segment ending at 3 15 sounds like the footsteps of a sloth.

I want "anti-disco" on a t-shirt. I don't even dislike disco, I guess I just really like negativity.

This has a very cinematic feel to it, like seeded with disco I can see a scene playing out. The disco is closed, the crowd is pouring into the parking lost of some mid-80s strip mall. Drunk, cocaine-crashed patrons shamble across the grey surface, contrasting with the the garish appeal they are wearing. It's like a zombie movie where the heads of the have a monsters are protected by aqua-net reinforced shells. The musical breaks in the song are accent points in the visual journey. :56 a 37 year old waitress throws up, 1:29 a man in a polyester suit trips over a curb, his jaw shattering as he hits the ground. 3:16 a drunk driver slowly plows through a field of disco-zombies, the glowing sign of a bowling ally can be seen in the background.

This reminds me of Hovercraft's sonic explorations. The #Slothcore stops are fun, they break up the montage to give you a moment to digest what has gone before. A great song & an excellent #Slothcore track!

Also @Spazsquatch has to make that video Biggrin

See You In The Shadows…

I'm really liking the sound effects here. Personally I wouldn't know how to define it, but if it's undefinable it's unique in my book and that's a good thing.

Gotta love the way you took the theme and molded it into what you needed to create Smile When I create themes for skirmishes, this is my intention, that folks use them to inspire either literally or as a mere starting point Smile That's how I participate in skirmishes anyways !
This is so interesting it becomes compelling.
Love your anti-disco tag too !!!

Cool trippy sound, and I like your explanation for how you approached the prompt. The various moments of silence just kept me in suspense for what was coming next. I love the single-note guitar delay at around 1:05. The slow groove is sort of anti-disco, and was certainly mesmerizing.
