    I'm really listening hard for any direct Dancing Mad references, but I'm just coming up short. Sure, it's a great piece and there's plenty TO use (not to mention a lot is directly ripped from the Toccata/Fugue) but Scratch is a lot more...organized, I suppose. There's a definite theme along with some branching, but stays relatively on topic. Dancing Mad is, quite frankly, all over the place.

    A couple places vaguely reminded me of this little number, but I doubt it's what he was going for. I'm thinking it's either that glissando or in the harmonies between 1:59-2:18.
    We have a winner! Scratch was heavily inspired by both the Toccata/Fugue and the final Bowser theme (seeing as it's one of my favorite tunes from Mario 64). The four notes at around 0:20 are the same beginning four notes to the final Bowser theme. In fact, I had to be careful not to make it sound too much like that song- after all, Scratch has a very different feel than the koopa king!

    You mean 0:02?

    Edit: Never mind. That was a different bowser tune I had in mind.

    Oh snap! Guess I needs me more confidence in my answers. That's a really great way to finish up the game, too: first time I had to fight him I freaked out by the combination of music and "holy shit THE FLOOR IS COLLAPSING".

    EDIT:

    No, that's the very notable Bach reference. The Bowser connection is when you hear the 1-5-8 octave movement in the high part. It goes: 1-5-8-6b, 5-8-3b-2, 1-5-8-6b, 5-8-5-4# (if you can read that, I probably just made up that notation right now).

    Funny you should say that, as I happen to have both. FL Studio user since V5, and I still can't be arsed to spend more than 30 minutes with it at a time Keyboard's a huge help though, dunno how I lived without this thing.

    Re: Holy cow new album!! THE FELT

    oh yeah
    my mom likes this album too
    although only the orchestral bits, when she hits the electronic bits she's like DNW, NEXT SONG PLZ but she has very defined tastes sooo

    but anyway everything on this is the best
    since you are masters of melody you should all travel back in time sometime in the future and hug yourself riiiiiight..... NOW !

    Also at 00:39 in The Broken Clock, I keep thinking the song will turn into Doll Judgement. bluh bluh i should un-train my ears from trying to find touhou music everywhere, stupid stupid dumb. :|

    Huh, so that's why I thought about Dancing Mad when listening to Scratch.

    Re: Holy cow new album!! THE FELT

    Man, any time I try to listen to one song, I end up listening to like 5 because it is so cohesive

    English.

    Oh my god.

    IDE/Theory: This song will be used as the EOA6 song, or barring that, SOA7.

    Swing of the Clock- Inspired by 3 in the Morning (Word of God)

    Clockwork Reversal-Clockwork Melody

    Chartreuse Rewind-Doctor

    Apocryphal Antithesis-Homestuck theme

    Broken Clock-I got shades of the opening of Octoroon Rangoon, but that might just be me.

    Scratch-I have a feeling that I've heard at least part of it elsewhere in the Homestuck discography, but I can't quite place it.

    Time Paradox-Once again, I could swear I've heard some of it before.

    English-I'm almost certain I heard a tiny bit of Chorale in the middle somewhere.

    Variations-Reminds me a lot of Let the Squiddles Sleep in the first part, but it might just be the similar buzz at the beginning.

    Oh, right, this album was so awesome (personally, I like the main HS albums and Alternia slightly more, but that's like saying I like coconut slightly more than butterscotch*).

    *I really, really love butterscotch.
    Don't forget the start of Jade Dragon.

    I'm not that kind of "orchestra" guy but this album really changes my opinion.

    Did anyone else hear a bit of Endless Climb in Apocryphal Antithesis, toward the end?

    Hmm, is that Doctor I hear? I might be confusing it with another major track.

    Yeah, I hear it. From 2:01 to 2:11, and again at 2:31. There's also very strong Homestuck Anthem overtones.

    I've been using FL since 2003, version 3.5. But I know exactly what you mean. It's a real pain for quite awhile, but ultimately is pretty powerful if you know what you're doing.

    Good luck to you, though. If you need any advice, feel free to ask!

    This album is beautiful. You knocked this one out of the park, music team. I was so excited when I realized this was a whole album full of orchestral music. I love all the songs, especially The Broken Clock. Omelette Sandwich was also pretty hilarious. xD

    Also, the Bandcamp main site says The Felt is 3rd on the top album list on Bandcamp right now, so congrats!

    Actually, it's a rewind.

    SO EGGS CAN REWIND HIMSELF AND ADD THE NEXT LAYER OF THE TRACK.

    I enjoyed that song so much more once I figured this out.

    Scratch was made using incredibly convincing samples, and produced to the point where it sounded really realistic.

    Baroqueback Bowtier, however, was definitely recorded on an acoustic cello. I could look over my shoulder and see the instrument I recorded it on right now if I wanted to.
    I was going to mention Baroqueback reminded me of Shostakovich Cello concerto #2 third movement. Wondering if you noticed that too when playing it, if you know of that piece, or if you also wrote Baroqueback, if you had that in mind?

    Oh by the way anyone that liked Baroqueback or discovered that they love the cello because of it should listen to that entire concerto that I linked the third part to, it's pretty amazing.

    That's it.

    I've had it.

    This is too much.

    I'm getting FL now, and I'm gonna save up money for either a new keyboard, or some expensive MIDI card for my computer, because this album, you people, this album convinces me that music is the key to harmony..

    It's just so fucking awesome. Major props to all of you who worked on this, Omelette Sandwich is currently my favorite, but I haven't had time to listen through all of them (at work now)

    I was having an awesome day, and then I checked MSPA, and IT GOT 2000% BETTER. And then something annoying happened, but that meant I got to go home and listen to this, so it's all good.

    *flails* SO AWESOME.
    I LOVE YOU ALL.
    THIS IS FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC.
    THIS ENTIRE ALBUM IS BEAUTIFUL.
    LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL.
    SO AWESOME.

    I'm really impressed with the cover art especially. Oh god Skeptic, you're amazing. I could stare at it all day. Absolutely gorgeous. My favorite songs are Swing of the Clock, The Broken Clock, Temporal Piano, and Time Paradox.

    I swear I could hear some Sarabande in Time Paradox? But I'm crap at recognizing leitmotifs, so probably not.

    Someone mentioned that there is a new album. I jokingly said "Haha, it must be a Felt album". Turns out, I see the future.

    I have just started listening to it, and it is already beautiful.

    Man, finally. Everyone is jumping at shadows thinkin' there's Anthem callouts in Antithesis, but this fellow here is definitely on to something!

    I actually do not own any Shosty recordings! I'm definitely enjoying the link you posted though, this is the first I've heard of this concerto.

    Bowtier is sort of the culmination of a dark vein of improvisation that I play with a lot, and have played with some in the past. When Felt time came, I decided to sit down and bang out some cello music derived from that sort of noodling. I had no idea how reception would be, and I actually expected for it not to get used on the album at all because I was pretty sure people would find it boring. Guess I was wrong!

    so is there any particular reason that Rhapsody in Green is backwards?
    did you guys just decide it sounds better that way
