So I was amassing a large amount of vaporwave...
« on: August 15, 2016, 05:48:05 AM »
...when I found this particular track. I was like whaaat? :o I know that shit's all about vague distortions of existing songs (and AESTHETICS, I suppose) but I did not expect Codename Iceman sounds 5 and 7.

That'll be all.

How large is large? Two days, two hours, twenty-two minutes... and one second.

WTF??

It's also heavily borrowing from Police Quest 2.

What the #@!??

OK, this is something.

From the artist's page on bandcamp:
Quote
Crime never stops and neither does the corruption of the law system and it is up to one detective to unfold the web of lies and uphold justice for society. This album is a tale of a detective on the trail of an infamous serial killer. Turns out the killer is a very close individual, The connections are there and not readily apparent. This romance is complicated.

Track 8 also sounds very familiar.
Leisure Suit Larry perhaps?

Did he record them from the MT-32 himself or did he rip off QS or maybe SMC?

Well, the whole deal with vaporwave is to sample and distort, so I'm thinking they knew exactly what they doin'.

Never heard of vaporwave before.
You sure seem to dwell on some remote internet locations...  :P

Just now finished playing a song that was basically a slowed down and breathy take on "Come to Me" by France Joli. So yeah.

I guess you figured out that it was from the bar in Iceman.

Yes, I did - and found that it heavily borrowed from the Police Quest 2 theme. Well, they were both composed by Mark Seibert...

Actually I mixed-up and meant the latter part of the first track (which is also from the bar) resembles the PQ2 intro.
The 2nd track is from the bar and doesn't sound like PQ2 at all.
