Haven't made anything in a while, I've had terrible writers block. (I've had it all year, to be honest.)
I never have the time to make music, with doctors appointments, education and what not.
Still, I thought I'd try to toss a piece together. It's very rough, only two sets of chord progressions. (and my ears/headphones are terrible at the time, so if you hear any problems with the chords, I'd love to hear it.)
The song is very repetitive, I know, there are slight additions throughout the song, such as very quiet strings and rhodes that copy the main melody. And then near the end there is a violin/piano set.
Also, just another thing, you've probably heard all these synths before, if you do, I apologize. I wanted to focus a little bit more on the chord progression.

Still, I'd love to hear ANY feedback you have, it would be much appreciated.

(Oh, one more thing, sorry for the very large audio file - I wanted it to be good quality.)

Good song

This is a very good song. The atmosphere it creates is a bit hard to describe, though. It's somewhere between sad, melancholic and creepy.

I like the strings very much here. They play a calm, yet somewhat creepy melody (I think the creepiness is created because they play so slow and deep).
Even though the song is indeed repetitive I don't see this as an disadvantage here. It only denses the atmosphere in this case.

The only thing that bothers me is the outro. The quick fade out feels a bit out of place here. Maybe it would have been better to end the song on a single string note. But I'm really nitpicking here.

I do see what you mean with the outro. I was feeling a bit lazy and did a fade effect with the instruments that I had going. Maybe I will go back and change it, see if I like the sound of it.
Thanks for the review!

Soothing

Kind of gives me the feeling of just walking down a desolate street as I witness zombies eating what was once my friends. I take the gun in hand and just keep moving along trying to keep them from seeing me and from time to time I throw something in a random direction to throw them off while I scavenge and look for ways to survive as I try to find a way out of the city of zombies. Very well composed soundscape piece.

The synth kind of gives a space feel to me I think. Then from time to time I also hear a second synth in the back playing on a much lighter note and trying to help you relax and feel better as you move along in the zombie ridden city. The occasional violin sound is also very nice to hear too.

Overall, sound scape of calming beauty and zombies.

MrMeD responds:

Ah, I love the reviews with a story to accompany it. I didn't really think this would be some kind of "soundscape" piece, but the the two reviews I've gotten so far suggest it is.
Still, thanks for the review (and the nice zombie story to go with it)!

Going nowhere

This song makes me think of a person standing in the desert with nothing but sand as far as the eye can see. Confused, this traveler tries to figure out how he's ended up here; lost and alone he longs for things far away. He misses home, and after much thought... finally pushes forward.

This song obviously leaves a lot of room for imagination to take over (very spacey, and open sounding). In fact, this almost seems like more of a soundscape than a song.

I like what you've made here, but you could have done a lot more to make this a little more unique.

Great Effort!

MrMeD responds:

Yes, I am aware it is pretty dull, more "soundscape" sounding. I wanted to add backing instruments with a different melody but I never could find something that sounded nice. Either way, thanks for the review.
