<Transcendescence>

Edit July 30, 2011: Now a higher quality version still at 320kbps, but at 512 point sinc instead of the original 64 point sinc. No new mastering done, so still some low end distortion i suppose that i can't hear -_-.

Yes, not a word, and the closest word is Transcendence, which is not what I meant to write. I started this song technically during the making of New Beginnings. The beginning melody of this song I created as a harmony phasing part during the 2:12 to 2:54, playing from 2:24 to 2:42. Anyhow, there were simply too many instruments playing (4) with too many notes, along with the drum line, so I gave up on the creation of the harmony in New Beginnings and created a song out of it. Funny thing is, is that it is a seven-note scale for some reason. Technically, yes it is a real scale, but when playing the 4th scale degree during that specific harmony (technically melody in Transcendescence) there's dissonance with every single note of the "Septave," so... I don't know the exact scale of this song. Anyways there technically IS a key change around the climax.

So this song is pretty much a breakthrough in my style, and also combines slow with fast to make this more of a "complete" kind of composition with various elements, so it's not the ideal song for parties, and there's definitely energy in this song. Listen with headphones or speakers turned up :D. I experimented with using more dominants and perfect fourths rather than the standard minor and major thirds used in more generic songs and my past songs (Exhilaration). Also worked on creating actual harmonies in some parts of this song, and the intensity level is very high in this song. All in all, I'm pretty happy with this song, with all the time I've spent on it and also the beauty of each melody/harmony/bass line on their own and the enticing feel created by their combination during the song. I hope when you listen to this song, you can smile at at least one part, because I'm proud of this one :).

Features:

Dual Double Octaves within one instrument
Gated Solo
Slow Part; Ritardando and Accelerando
Sick twist on arpeggios
One Super Solo reminiscent of Impulse
Finally, introduction of Melody AND Harmony in my songs now, + Bass
Negative Sloping Sinusoidal Sine Wave Harmony
Less Predictable Base (not bass, I mean base) line the song follows
+Varying Base lines
Onbeat Bass, and Onbeat+Offbeat Bass combination
Mastering WITHOUT Fruity Limiter*
*The High Filter Max Out in the beginning was intentionally done the way you hear it. With Fruity Limiter "On" the High Filter Pass simply does not have the same sort of ear-splitting rise and fall as without it.

You tried to hard. :(

I'll basically ell you again what I said over chat. Your lead instruments, filters, and kick clip way too much, your song has very little flow and unnecessary drum rolls and crashes, (Which I always didn't like) it doesn't transition smoothly, and you use the same high-pitched ear scratching super lead you always do. Give it a rest with that thing. Write some ambient music or liquid DnB. Branch away from your style. 3/5 5/10

Really good!

Watch out for the levels, especially at the start when there's the highpass filter everything seems to max out for a while. When it gets into it everything sounds pretty nice. The harmonies are great but watch out the melodies change a bit too often, it doesn't feel like there's a whole lot of continuity.
You've got absolutely loads of good ideas but maybe just stick to a few to make it sound like one complete track.
Really great work!


AXTTXA responds:

The high pass filter "max out" was intentional. Hm yeah people keep mentioning that i should keep the melodies more constant or like repeated to make it more of a song. I just really hated that my songs always followed a certain format in my previous songs so I decided to do away with it for once.
Thanks for the review Nick!

Brilliant.

Well done. Just the beginning when there was the background bass? I suppose. It would have been super epic throwing that in slightly later as it was building up. Was otherwise real good.

Well done.
