Loki was made early in 2014. I think I’d just figured out how to use Image Lines ‘Harmor’ VST for sampling and was getting carried away with my low end bass and pads. It suffers a little for having too much going but I couldn't bring myself to change it.

It was one of those projects where you stumble home after a night at the pub and think:

‘I don’t care how this turns out, I’m just going to open the DAW and have fun with music for an hour.’

Well that turned into 6 hours and at the end of that I found I’d made the first piece of music I was kind of happy with, very quirky, a little weird in parts but it was a whole composition, done in one evening. Didn't think that was possible for myself at the time.

The vocals are from a Canadian sample I got from freesound.org, that website’s great for picking up live recordings.

I think Loki might have even been the track that sparked the EP idea before it became the Album project.

Cheers for listening.

Very chill... I like how you're laying out the atmosphere here. Vocals, rhythm, bass, and various synths, but the the moment at .48 seconds really sets the tone for me to just enjoy it.
There are certain things that were left to be desired and that was a progression that could project some kind of inspiring lift, but it instead lingers in suspension. Which is fine--just a personal preference because I enjoyed the atmosphere of this piece. The other is perhaps for some added depth around 2:40 because everything drops out. Not saying what is done is right or wrong as this is still enjoyable. I think you have a nice sense of aesthetics in terms of timbre.

Thanks for the response Phonometrologist,

I think this is the first solid critique I've had on here, so the time you've taken to write this is much appreciated. One of my biggest issues with production is filling space with less. I often fall into the trap of layering too much and this is something I'm looking to improve on. I'm beginning to explore stereo and hard panning left and right but still feel I need some time studying as well as playing.

Once again thanks for the review.

So far so good, I love low end sub bass myself, so even getting carried away isn't all too bad. Sometimes our mistakes and flaws in music becomes a style, not a mistake. I like the atmospheric sounds going on. Really chill song. Love much!
