HAL's Ombra Mai Fu

Genre/Style: Tongue in Cheek
Creative Vision for the Track: What if Handel knew HAL2000? Would he shut him down too?
Composition Details (Tempo, Key, Main Chords etc): F Major, 60 BPM 3/4 rendition of Handel’s Largo from Xerxes with a little Space Odyssey Thrown in.
Main Instruments used: All software instruments = Mostly Arturia (Ok, really having fun with the Vocoder), UJAM IDOL and Logic Mellotron.

Hope you get a chuckle out of this. Stop Dave, Stop…I’m Afraid


Great fun, thanks.
Question: Is Tongue In Cheek a new genre?

I have a piece I called Comedy.

What are some accepted genres for funny music, or satirical music?

Hi Dori - I suppose we can create a new genre! As for what’s acceptable for satirical, I wonder what PDQ Bach would be classified as?

Hi Stuart! I think PDQ Bach was classified as Satire back in the day, and it would be called Comedy today! What fun!! Who says music has to be so serious?
