This may be one of my favorites from you! Percussive, melodic, and as always, inspiring of revery and imagination! Most cetainly the robot hit of the summer robot beach party!

thanks! It’s aiming for the mechanical sand.

I’m a big fan of anything with a drum or percussion. Minimal but very effective.

I am learning to love percussion, though I have much to learn.

The best thing about less is that there is less of it, the more you do.

Nice. Quirky. I could see this as a score for some cool retro video.

I see it as a kind of cool video myself, very old-fashioned, like a history of Pong.

You really morphed this into something totally different. I can see this in a robot chase scene. Nice job.

Thanks for such great samples—so many rich things to work with, and yet my effort is limited to a great funky track I have rendered less funky.

I see myself bathing. Not swimming, but bathing. This is joy. I love it. Bathing will never be the same again. Brilliant. Astounding brilliant!
Greetings from us!

I like to drench in sound, too—very Summer-y, these sounds like water.
Many thanks, and greeting to you! We could use a bit of your climate here in Texas ‘round about now.

Robot Summer sounds like cool title for a movie. ;) I like what you’ve done here.

I love it as a movie title, particularly if P.J. Soles could be in it. Thanks!

Love this. If I knew any robots, I would share this with them and we would do a little dance. Very cool track.

Just think, in 3 decades or so, you may know some robots, who can dance.

Yes! Your intro laid the perfect groundwork for this delightful dancing dervish. i can imagine little robots all over La Jolla shores - and i’d be dancing along with them all to the setting sun.

My wife and I used to love spending the weekend in La Jolla—I’d love to see the beach dotted with robots.

Great percussive work. Constant kick is great. Excellent melodic line as dancing robots. I love this.

I was not sure about the constant kick, until I realized the song was sure about it, and then it was fine with me. Thanks! I like doing a little homage to robots and minimal techno, without quite capturing either.

A Gurdonark piece is always a lesson in unhurriedness, letting the sound unfold itself, and this is no exception… very nice.

I felt a little badly doing electronica at 60 bpm, but the best things simmer quietly.

Rockabilly robots… the steady tick tock backbeat and the washroom echo on the synth sounds, gives it kind of a electro-Eddie Cochrane feel. :)

Definitely a summer tune. Heck even C-3P0 chills in the sand on Tatooine. :)

I like the idea of electro Eddie Cochran—the ways the instruments blend in pieces would be very appropriate to that era. It’s Summer, and all the best robots enjoy the sand!
