"Marching Morons (2013 Mix)" [3.5 MB .mp3]

Revisited a tune from 2005, now retired from its duties as a bot-magnet (owing to the unique extension "mp3"). I liked the sensual sound of the SID chip's 8-bit-with-analog-filter-processing so I just had a repeating figure going up and down an octave while a drum machine chugs along underneath. It essentially still does that but I added some dropouts (which sounds like a contradiction), some delay, some Afro-Cuban percussion, and couple of sing-songy synth motifs at the end. "The Marching Morons" is a 1951 science fiction short story by C.M. Kornbluth.
