Tom Glover

Alien Boy

00:00 / 04:07

My name is Tom Glover, I'm 17 years old, and I play guitar. I record and compose music for fun. I'm not really sure what you would call the genre, I suppose it falls under the general category of instrument or rock, I like to call it alien rock.

My biggest influences guitar-wise include Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Plini and Jason Becker, but I do listen to a wide range of music. I'm entering this competition purely because I want to get my music 'out there'. It's very hard to get it across to a very specific, small target audience.

This song uses the strange tones of an oscillator that I found lying around in Logic, it creates a weird bubbly sound that really fits the song. I used lots of different synth sounds as well as clean guitar to create the soundscape behind the dominant layer. The weird section uses a whole half scale scale over a diminished chord to give some seriously weird vibes, but I like it.
