Mark J. Hadley: (composer)

Back when we knew Jade as just GG, I wrote the first part of Carefree Action as a possible upbeat strife theme for her. It never ended up getting used, but other people liked it, and eventually a remix of it (Carefree Victory) made it into the comic. The original was pretty short, so I lengthened it so that I could eventually get it onto an album. Like Sburban Reversal, I recommended it as a bonus track.

8bitkitten: (track artist, Tumblr)

Days before the release of Homestuck Volume 8, I lucked out and was offered the opportunity to make track art. I chose “Carefree Action” and wound up with a cute 8-bit tune. It’s a lighter version of “Carefree Victory” from Volume 4. The 8-bit sound and peppiness of the song gave me the idea of Jade and Dave collecting frogs as they would coins in a video game.

I have a hi-res image, but this is all I can post for now.
