This one was really fun and experimental for me. I recorded my own voice singing an old tune called "Hey, ho" in a round and then heavily blurred it in edison for a haunting, ethereal feel. Then I added some reverbed piano, drums, and bass.

Enjoy!

PS. I know this piece is unusual compared to my other compositions, but imagine it being used at something like a save point in a horror game. The piece is peaceful, yet dark and abominable on another layer.

I wish I could make games, but I cant. I really want to make a point and click adventure game with your music, but I know nothing about making games. All I know is writing story's. Do you know anyone trustworthy that will help me create such a game?

Now on to the review on the song.

The music is amazingly puzzling, its like silent hill. Its so peaceful, and yet its an abomination under all that beauty. I love it, it really makes you think of life in another perspective, really reminds me of Silent Hill 1 and 3 music. Thanks for the intriguing music.

Thank you for mentioning Silent Hill! That is exactly the vibe I had in mind after completing this. :) I imagine it being used on something like the map screen of a horror game, or maybe at a menu or save point.

I think it would work well at a save because. as you say, it is peaceful. At the same time, it has that underlying feeling of 'abomination' that would fit a horror game, keeping you on your toes even in a moment of respite. That juxtaposition is what made composing this so fun for me.

I feared this would not be well received compared to my more typical compositions. I'm really glad you 'get it'.

And unfortunately, I do not know of such a person who can help you with a game. :(

"Needs more melody." XD Just kidding.

This music makes me uncomfortable. It makes me feel like something is going wrong or is about to go wrong.

I know what you mean! The background vocals only sort of fit. They are out of time with the rest of the track and sometimes wander into a very dissonant, clashing harmonic cloud that is add odds with the other elements. That is just edgy enough to make a really strange, uncomfortable feeling, and it was fun to explore something like that for a change.

I know this is certainly not 'pleasant' like some of my more melodic pieces, so thank you for listening and giving a review. XD

Feels like suddenly travelling into a mythical place, which one may only have heard of. I'd imagine a whole world filled with many unnatural objects and phenomenons, which one would observe immediately upon entering this place, but discover it in wonder, as if exploring.

Dunno what the goal was (if there was any in the first place, given that it was experimental), but it's very atmospheric.

I didn't have a clear goal with this track. Here is how it developed:

I saw a youtube tutorial on how to make something called a blur pad in FL Studio, and I attempted it on an old recording of me singing. It sounded so incredibly haunting and ethereal...tense, unpleasant even. I started playing around and put some piano on it. Then a bass...and it just kept going until this little track was done. Totally unplanned and practically improvised. I debated even uploading it, as it is so different from the norm for me, but I decided to give it a shot figuring I could always take it down later if need be.

Your description is really fitting. I'm trying to visualize that in my head, and some of the images are really strange. Thanks for the thoughtful review. :)
