Is this it?

Fits your description, although the flute only has one little part.

Ever make something and then when you listen to it you're just like "How did I make this?!" Anyways, its my usual 3 channels of square wave, so if that turns you off...well, sorry :P

But for the remaining listeners, I got a screwball module with changing time signatures, bizarre modulations, skewed song structure, but it somehow just works in a weird way. At least I think so! Let me know what you think...

Well, since it's relevant, I'll use this opportunity to plug the album BGM by Yellow Magic Orchestra again, since it was the first album to use the TR-808 (in 1980)

There are no jobs on the Unknown Moon!

WELL THEN, I'll have to offer alternative incentives, if spinning the moon on your pinky isn't enough.

First of all, it does spin in a CD player, and music is produced. If you listen to the music this way, you hear the tracks exactly as I intended them to sound, in the order I intended.

Second of all, the entire package looks cool. I designed it myself, and it did turn out most nicely in my opinion. Which bring me to the third incentive...

IT HAS A CADUCEUS WITH FIRE AND ICE SERPENTS. Which is a lot of cool symbolism in a nice winged-rod and serpents package.

Also, the inspiration for the album cover came when I was a kid, and had a dream that blue and orange serpents pulled me up to the moon, and the album as a whole is intended to create a similar "dream" in the listener (maybe just to appreciate the moon?)

This all leads me to my final (EDIT: next) point, which is that selling this  CD expands my ego, which briefly feels good in the way that a shot of dope after a broken arm or winning at Street Fighter 2: Turbo, or any other ephemeral pleasures feel.

Beyond that, this CD is an immortality token, or something mundane which reminds of something that outlasts mortal flesh and blood. Humans seek out immortality tokens because they are afraid of death. This CD temporarily relieves the terror caused by knowledge of one's mortality.

Anyways, while ego is part of why I made the CD, I wanted to give
A) The few fans I have something to have
And B) Have something cool and tangible to remember Unknown Moon with

Money is a very small factor, but I went into this expecting to lose money on this, that is, not even sell 6 copies of the 10 I made, so time will tell if this is the case.

Anyways, MOON!

Due to the incredible popularity of my "square wave only" modules on ModArchive I decided to release my album Unknown Moon on a physical, spin-it-on-your-pinky CD. The disc has the dark side of the moon printed on it, like the cover, its got artwork, a jewel case, shrink wrap...

Or you could just get the modules on modarchive, but seriously man, YOU CAN SPIN THE MOON ON YOUR PINKY! Released by the mostly imaginary record label Fourier Records, i.e., myself.

It's only $5 but shipping might kill you if you're in Europe or Asia.

Check my bandcamp page for more information!

And before anyone accuses me of selling out, I don't expect to make any profit on this, and if I do, it'll be to fund releases on Fourier Records (i.e., make more quality records for me and other people to enjoy for cheap)

The Lobby / Inspiration from Yellow Magic Orchestra

I've started buying up Yellow Magic Orchestra LPs, and it just struck me that this pioneering Japanese experimental synthpop band is the right band at the right time to look back on and be influenced by. Just dropping this name, check 'em out if you haven't heard them. They were synthpop influences (along with Kraftwerk) on Chicago house. But they could influence more modern music too, if musicians would listen to them. Which is something I'd like to happen, so I made this post.

The Lobby / Noise!
« on: March 04, 2017, 19:52:20 »
I'm wondering, are there any modules that are just noise? I don't mean "rhythmic noise" or hardcore...I just mean soundscapes of sampled noises without melody, rhythm...Perhaps droning as a cacophony of sampled noise. I know that effects available in more modern DAWs facilitate this type of noise making better than trackers, but perhaps there are some interesting noise tracks? BTW, what is ModArchive's policy on noise, musique concrete, etc. Is it even accepted here?

In japan, there is this very popular Shoot Em Up series called touhou. It became somewhat popular here in the west, mainly because it became a meme. Many of the songs are EXTREMELY fast paced and daunting, and they are such a joy to listen to. The songs themselves are MIDIs, and since I know they are somewhat like MODs, and because they are so popular, I was wondering if anyone had made a rendition of one of them as a MOD. Thank you!

Artist Susumu Takajima ( did some...not all of them are listed under his name because he submitted them without claiming them as his own work (I think). Here is what I think is a complete list, including the ones not under his name. (If I missed any someone correct me)

Blade of Banishment:
A Red Ground Cherry Soul:
Eternal Maiden Shrine:
Shrine of the Wind:
High Prayer Response:
Magic Mirror:
