A high quality audio recording of me rubbing a carrot stick betwixt my thumb and index finger



Rated 1 / 5 stars

I enjoy a lot of the interesting noises plopped into the 'scape here, but the lack of transition at 00:33 threw me off, and the spin-cycle esque percussion absolutely destroys the musicality of this track. As some subgenre of chiptune and IDM's baby, I can't really get into it at any point despite decent chord structuring and fair instrumentation. The constant tempo and pitch sway really threw me off, as well, and reintroducing your... drop, so to speak, lost points with me.

To sum up, your writing is not bad, excluding the really frantic seizure percussion. The transitions or lack thereof take the most life out of this piece. Last section was actually pretty enjoyable to listen to with the exclusion of not really feeling like it was going anywhere, and the outro was an interesting journey.

The mood is very ominous, and I think the distorted riser effects (:00, :11, and :19) seemed a little out-of-place. You need a smoother transition into the part at :30. At :47, the machine-gun-sounding percussion was pretty excessive and unnecessary, and the melody was a little square and robotic. The transition at 1:18 is pretty rough too. Usually, it’s a good idea to continue certain instruments or riffs on both sides of a transition in order to make it sound smoother. The tempo automations at around 1:30 are also a little silly. Tempo automations can be very jarring if you do them at inopportune times; please use them sparingly! You made some effort at structural coherence with this piece, as evidenced by the section at 2:27. However, I think one of your main challenges going forward is transitions. Transitions which mold together two distinct sections of a piece should use some carefully chosen techniques to integrate the content on both sides. Try to make the 2 or so measures before you start a new section gradually start to mirror the section after it in terms of volume, rhythm, energy, and instrumentation. Once you feel like you’ve written a piece with good transitions, please PM me again, and I’ll leave you another review. Your piece isn’t all bad - many of the melodies are enjoyable, and the instruments are really cute (albeit cliche) - but having appropriate transitions is a necessary part of the composition of your piece. Good luck, my friend!
