Note: This song is meant to pick up as it goes along, though it should start out fairly energetic. Any mixing / synth choices should be observed as progressive, thus any reviews should be given at the end of the song.
Also, I've been getting some comments on the mixing. I did my best to mix it well while still maintaining the sinking theme of the piece, though it's all up to preference. I will say after listening more I might've turned up the volume a bit more on the bongos, but again some people might prefer them lower.
I tried to compose something that would be less traditional or common without being completely out of the ordinary. I hope you like it!
Further notes (from reviews):
- The mixing at 1:43 and 2:43 is intentional, the mixing at 1:43 being transitional and the mixing at 2:43 being more inspired by a track by Dream Theater,
- The supplementary percussion is more clear in the original mp3. However, in the uploaded version you can hardly hear it.
