Kitty In The Tree by wendyfhsu published on 2013/01/18 23:02:08 +0000 This is a sketch of a new song that I'm working on. It currently lacks vocals and some parts of the song will be played live. I took the melody of "Mei Hua," an old patriotic song from the KMT (the Nationalist Party) in Taiwan, and then wrote tons of new parts based on the 8-bit aesthetics of nakashi cassettes that I've found in Taiwan and field recordings of machine sounds that come out of loudspeakers and tiny speakers in Taiwan. I have sampled a field recording of mini pinball machines that I captured in a small township south of Taipei where my grandparents are from. I will post a newer version of the song once my post-Dzian! band Bitter Party records it.
