Now with a theme tune

The latest episode of Nerd Against the Machine has a theme tune at the start and finish of the episode. It’s not something I cleared with Robert before throwing it up, and maybe I should have. I didn’t even think we needed a theme tune when we started this show. But I threw this one in there this time, and hopefully he likes it. Maybe you will, too.

It’s a really old tune that I did back in — I believe? — 2008 at a LAN party. I went with a friend of mine I used to play in a band with, and we had this idea that we would document the event with a piece of music each day. That idea fell apart pretty much by day 2, but I did manage to get one tune out of it.

It was appropriately titled “Monday,” named after the day on which it was composed. It was done in Propellerheads Reason 3, my music making software of choice back then. It’s terribly mixed, even by my standards of that time, because it was really just a throwaway piece of music intended to be part of a much larger collection of songs that never happened.

The bits you hear in the episode are just the first and last 20 seconds of the tune. If you want to listen to (or, for some reason, download) the full track, you can do so here:
