Melodic high tempo techno. Electronica with chord progression and melody lines. That is how I like it.

Now why "The Rat Chase"? This Sunday morning my wife dragged me out of bed saying "There is something you have to see, hurry". And what I saw was this big rat sitting on our bird feeder just outside our living room window. And it stayed there for 10 minutes until I decided to chase it away. I managed to take a picture of it through the window.

So the song of the day became The Rat Chase. I imagine a cat chasing the rat in the gardens.

Wonderful fat sounds, sunny and exciting, incredible range of timbres you've chosen here, and all inspired by a horrible rat! A stunning piece of electronica to round off my evening, and one that demonstrates that you can have a good melody in electronic music, not always a given.

I like the "clean" tones you used.I am tiring of bass laden and over-overdriven sounds.I am kinda wanting hear a more prominent and driving focused bass.Just my prejudice being a Rocker.
The track in a word, " Juicy ".

It's amazing what will inspire a song, huh?...lol ...I've only seen one wild rat in my life, and that's because it was injured. ....I probably would freak out if I ever saw one in my yard. ....I'm happy to say I have beautiful squirrels in my back yard.

You got me imagining the scenario of the "cat chasing the rat" while listening to this..I'm rooting for the cat. smiley

Really lively, and action packed music, Kenneth...very well done. smiley

If a simple rat inspired you to this, then you can race them anytime. Great energetic piece, like in one of those Fast and Furious movies. Too cool!

Very cool, Kenneth. Reminds me of some video games I grew up with (perhaps the synths, progressions, and melody lines which are strong points) and I mean it in the most complimenting, best of ways! smiley

Thank you, thank you, thank you so much for the overwhelming positive response I got to this music. I feared the picture of a fat rat would scare you away smiley

I can tell you that I reported the rat to the city and already the next morning they had placed a box with yummy rat foot with a nasty surprise just below the bird feeder. So hopefully this is the last time I see this rat and its family.

Several of you commented that you liked that there are real chords in this electronica piece. And yes, this is something I feel is missing in a lot of pieces of this genre, and it is sad, because the sonic world of synthesizers is exciting and the effects and the energy you can create with well programmed arppegiators are fantastic. But it still takes the good old musical qualities of melody and harmony to make it sound the way I think good music should sound. And it is not really that hard to learn.

Yes a wonderful melody packaged with great chord structure is a winner every time and you have one here. I don't usually listen to electronica but I am slowly learning that there are some things that I need to check out more. I really enjoyed this and can't compare this to anything in the electronica world but it does remind me of video game scores and would be an excellent track to one as you jump, bounce or otherwise hurtle yourself through various challenges. Great stuff Kenneth!


Peace,
Tony
