A few days ago I submitted this work in progress:
http://www.newgrounds.com /audio/listen/449929

Well here's a second version of it. Read the Author's Comments of the first to get details on what I used to make this track. It's a pretty weird song - not too experimental or anything, but its theme isn't so obvious. To me, when I hear this I think of a traveler visiting a new world and discover the quirky, odd, ways of how its inhabitants live their life.

My friends tell me it sounds like a 70's song with guys that have large afros walking in slow motion. Derp.

Enjoy, and remember that this is a work in progress so it's still not finished and feedback will be greatly appreciated! Oh and thanks a LOT to Buoy for giving me tonnes of feedback so far.

I'm not going to top SBB but...

Definitely would make a good soundtrack. It's fun and catchy :)

gonna criticize it even if you're not asking

you're onto something. A lot of awesome energy in the new parts. This warrants an 8/10 which is rather high for a WIP if I must say so myself. And yeah the stabbing horns do sound very 70s. A bit more polish and the 1:22-1:43 could totally be the a jingle for a news broadcast program. Send it to, err, Northwest Malta Broadcasting?? and see what they think seriously

Anyway, new criticismz for you! yay

Did you really fix the shaker reverb thing, I still think it sounds off

The descending guitar run you added is good but it's not really possible to play that since you have a relatively low guitar melody simultaneously. Which would require expandable fingers. To make it sound better, from 1:07 you could scratch the low melody and make some kind of melody that quickly rises in pitch so there's not a huge jump in pitch at 1:12. If you get what I mean.

I like how you shuffled up the piano notes, sounds a lot more human with that as well as all those fills. The piano could be quite a bit more prominent in the mix now though (at least I struggled hearing all of it properly), since it's taken more of a virtuoso/solo kind of role.

Wow thanks man. I didn't think you'd write a review anyway. I owe you one :3.

"you're onto something. A lot of awesome energy in the new parts. This warrants an 8/10 which is rather high for a WIP if I must say so myself."

Cool, thanks! I'm actually starting to think this is becoming one of my best recent submissions. And it's not generic orchestral like Legend, either. So I'm pretty proud of it.

"And yeah the stabbing horns do sound very 70s."

Aw come on but don't tell me this song makes you think of guys with afros walking in slow motion, right? D:

"A bit more polish and the 1:22-1:43 could totally be the a jingle for a news broadcast program. Send it to, err, Northwest Malta Broadcasting?? and see what they think seriously"

I dunno if I can beat this one though, man... (go to 0:16)

Yay!

"Did you really fix the shaker reverb thing, I still think it sounds off"

Not really. I added some more reverb but it's not so noticeable - I'm still experimenting with the reverb until I get it right.

"The descending guitar run you added is good but it's not really possible to play that since you have a relatively low guitar melody simultaneously. Which would require expandable fingers.

Alright, you're the guitarist so roger that! I see exactly what you man about the melody that rises in pitch - I'll work on that. Actually I was thinking of adding a string buildup till the guitar run thing, to make it a little more intense.

"I like how you shuffled up the piano notes, sounds a lot more human with that as well as all those fills."

That's just me trying to fix the 'stale rhythm' you mentioned.

"The piano could be quite a bit more prominent in the mix now though (at least I struggled hearing all of it properly), since it's taken more of a virtuoso/solo kind of role."

OK, good idea!

So anyway, I can't thank you enough for the review. Really appreciate it!
