Here's your NGADM Round 1 Review

--

Now firstly I'll start by saying don't judge because I'm a metal head! I still work with electronic so I can hear you've gone for Minimal Glitch here.

Starting with the guuuuuurd thangs. Your half timed to full time beat change is awesome. It keeps the listener intrigued even though your aim with the track was simply as an ambientesque bankground kind of song. The BEST thing about this song however is the melody. Catchy as balls. It's so simple yet precise. This simply one of those kinda songs that you'd hear on an introduction to a TV show or in the background of an artistic flash. Lush. Your glitched effects are lovely too. You have some great choices thrown in, especially at 1:20. It's so eviiiiiiiiiiiil. I however only wished you'd use slightly more sliced samples triggered fastly for that real glitch effect, it would've fit in perfectly!

Now onto what I feel isn't that great. I'm quite the opposite with Steps review in the feel that I'm not keen on the Kick or Snare sound. I guess this could be personal opinion, but the kick doesn't hold much punch at all and lacks any presence in the song. It could definitely use a little more thud to hold the rhythm of the song. The snare sounds like a sampled 808? Definitely has that old 80's feel, but it doesn't really have much power behind it. The presence is there but it just feels lacking to me.

Again even though it's minimal, I stand by step in saying it does feel fairly repetitive. The melody is great but after 32 bars or so it really does begin to drag on. I personally would've loved to hear a slight variation on that melody pulled in, thus keeping it minimal but still hold that interest.

Apart from all this, great work and I can't wait to see what you pull out for Round 2. I'm looking forward to it! :)


Sequenced responds:

Yeah, the samples were 808s. In terms of mixing, it's solid. However, it really is an acquired taste to really enjoy these kind of drum samples.

I wish more metal heads had a more open mind for electronic like you. Thanks for not "judging" :)

Oh yes, this is great. The production is really tight, and I love the atmosphere. You've got some excellent sounds over here, and on top of that you have some well-crafted glitch effects. Your snare is just awesome, by the way. To be honest, all of the sounds here are top-notch. Not only that, but you've given the track a great sense of space. It sounds incredibly airy and you didn't overload the mix, which makes it so pleasant to listen to. On a smaller note, I absolutely love your intro and outro.

The track has a pretty major repetition issue, which is pretty much the only glaring fault I can find with this track. The drum beat pattern is repeated a bit too much without variation, and while the glitch effects help to keep things interesting, they only go so far to stop the track from becoming boring. You focus too much on progressively adding in new elements, and creating an atmosphere, and I feel as though sometimes the effort to keep things sounding fresh is lacking. Also, a much more minor issue is the transition at 1:20 (and to a lesser extent the transition in the ending). I think some kind of indication that the drums and a bunch of other instruments have exited the song (some effect or crash cymbal or something) would be better than just stopping them. I like the abruptness of that transition though, so if you do go back to it, try to keep it sounding abrupt while still giving that section a bit more of a defined ending.

Even though I spent a longer time talking about the flaws than the good things about this track, I was actually considerably impressed. Great work!

Score: 8.6/10

Sequenced responds:

Since you are a non-Electronic music composer, I understand that you might think that this is a little repetitive. But that is the point of this track. It's a minimal track that slowly progresses until it reaches a certain point and then breaks down into some fucked up sound I made lol.

Thanks for using your free time on the NGADM. I would never be able to review things so quickly in a short period of time.

I hope you know, this is the type of music I try to find whenever I do Livestreams for art. I absolutely love this type of music.

The Ambience is wonderful. I've heard way too much pounding stuff. This is completely fantastic. Please, Have more coming in the future! ;D
