Default Today's World of Labor Rights

While I was playing around with Locasenna's "Theory Helper" - a fantastic tool for creating chord progressions - I developed this very tiny piano-thing that builds the base for this track. It's not that demanding, but I thought "how about making a little song from it?"

The title derives from a radio-programme, I listened to some days ago.

What would you say - is it worth listening?

Hi Sampo. Strange atmosphere there, a bit scary. But interesting sounding for me.

Bye

interesting languid vibe - I quite like it. Maybe the organ is a little loud but being slightly overbearing works for the mood so ....

Thank you, guys, for appreciating this little track. For me personnally it sounds a bit like a theme for some "film-noir". Maybe I'll work it out some more.

Greetings,

Hi there,

I did some additional work on that track and added some strings to bring up a little more movement into it.

I'm not very satisfied with those distortions on the piano, that one can hear on soundcloud, but which are not present on the original wav/mp3-files. Seems like I need to improve my mastering skills.

I like the string line but I prefer the original version of the piece. I love that open break where the bass is featured at about one minute in or so (basically where you introduce the strings in the second version) For me that emptiness makes hte languid vibe.
On another note - great song title, one of the best
