A deadly computer virus infects an important part of the main OS, silently spreading out to destroy all data. It's inevitable. The nuclear power plant has to shut down.

I am doing this song for AIM contest by RealFaction. Based on artwork by Sunshaft.

This is an experimental track. With DnB-ish and wub, but not much of a real DnB.

I think that this deserves way more than just 1 star in avarage rating, I think that this needs 4 stars at least!

Sound: Mixing is perfectly just fine here.

Composition: The song starts out really strong with a great mix of "orchestral" and electronic elements in what's a pretty epic style. The composition is a clear binary piece with one part and a second part. The problem I have with the composition is that it's too clearly broken up into a "glitched" half and a normal half, but otherwise it sounds like the same song repeated twice with glitches. Another problem that I had with the glitch part is that it was all glitched so it gave the impression that there was a problem with the computer. It would've been nice if there was a running track that was not glitched to convey to the listener's mind that the glitch of the other tracks is intentional. In addition, having all the glitch in one part does make it hard to listen to after a while. I think the second half's glitches should have been spread out amongst the non glitchy parts.

Fit to Art: This one takes a hit here. The art conveys a mostly normal scene of digital with a small section being invaded. With the way the song was written, it conveys a digital scene well, but it sounds almost as if the entire scene was already infected. However, the mix of electronic and "orchestral" elements is definitely a bonus to the track as it does fit the theme pretty well and gets the feel across.

Originality: I would say this track wins points on originality, as there was considerable effort made to try to incorporate various elements from different genres together to convey the feeling of digitalism and the virus infection. As much as the glitch could have been done better, definitely garners points on originality.

Ending thoughts: Fits the paired art well, perhaps a bit of reorganization in the musical structure department could help.

I like this. I will say with this track is the beginning I feel could turn more to the electronic side to begin with then add the strings. Other than that, I like the percussion a lot in this track. I like the synths as well. It reminds me of some Portal music along with something epic. I like the way it grooves, I think it fits the picture very well. Reminds me of that old show Code Lyoko when they're fightining the baddies, ya know? Anyway, one last complaint is I feel the speed of the wobble bass could've been more controlled as it felt a little off. Other than that, great work here, really fits the artwork.

You picked an interesting work of art to base your song on. Sounds great. I like the horns with the percussion hits. Fits a world within a computer. Makes me think of Tron Legacy. And of dem0lecule.

You put the drum works to excellent use. I see you have borrowed my horn style, good use.
