artist Chiptune and orchestral hybrid. Nursery rhyme and video game influence everywhere.

Forcing valid 4/4 (non-swing) rhythm to 3/4 and swing tracks (mostly in the rhymes) was a huge challenge.

A few days prior to composing this, I subscribed to two children's channels on YouTube. - K. Jose

Composed by Kristoffer Jose

The entire track is influenced by children's music.

Song positions and descriptions as follows:

Pos|Description                    |Length|BPM|Scale    |Style used
0   Main track                        2:08 180 G minor   Hybrid orchestral/
                                                         8-bit
13  [my own attempt on children's      :24 120 C# major  Children's music
    music]
17  Copy of main track chorus,         :38 100 C minor   Hybrid orchestral/
    without rhymes and drums                             8-bit

8-bit style influenced by gaming.

In the main track, each pattern held a different nursery rhyme, except its
start and end patterns which had none.
These rhymes are heard playing from channels 16 and 17. Try setting either or
both channels as solo in the tracker or XMPlay. Specifically they are:

Position |contains rhyme
0 [start] [none]
1         Twinkle Twinkle
2         London Bridge
3         Three Blind Mice
4         Farmer in the Dell (I also have a standalone chiptune version of
          that at the ModArchive.)
5         Ring-a-ring-a-roses
6         If You're Happy
7         Humpty Dumpty
8         Jack and Jill
9         Mulberry Bush
10        Old McDonald
11 [end]  [none]

The rhymes above were entered in A# Major to remain seamless with the G minor
scale used elsewhere.

Sample sources:
*Magical 8-bit Plug VST plugin
*GM.DLS in Windows
*Coda [coda.s3m.us]
*Multiple compositions from Peter Hajba (Skaven)
*sampleswap.org

I rendered the triangle wave myself.

Warning: contains stereo samples and DirectX effects. Best played with
OpenMPT or XMPlay.

Information: This is a multi-part song. To access all the parts of a
multi-part song, you need to use a tracker or XMPlay.
