An experiment I made long time ago

Was getting some real deja vu with the melody here, wondering what it reminded me of... maybe bits of this one: https://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/116717

Really like the jazzy tone there, good improv. The airy vibes overall are a pretty different mood than the one it reminded me of, feels fresh, good groove, in the end maybe I'm wishing also the background layer/beat eventually changed up a bit, but it's easy listening either way. Smooth ambiance with a synth that keeps it varied regardless. Lotta layers. Good clarity. Great vibes.


See, the song just lacks ideas for itself. You have all the sounds ready, and they're all really great, but it ends up being just a chaotic mess without much proper arrangement. The sounds are just used interchangeably, and they work alone, instead of together creating something beautiful.

Now, what's my point; my point is that you have A LOT to work with here, you just need to mix it all together with a real idea, and you'll end with something actually wonderful!

Also, I'd push that sound with the large attack more into the background, it really tends to interrupt the foreground melody, plus it's very repetitive, so you would probably want to avoid having that be a major focus.

Of course you don't have to listen to me, if you feel the song is good the way it is, then by all means, enjoy it the way it is. Just want to make that clear, you know, since I feel like some people are unnecessarily critical :)

EDIT: yeah yeah, I get it, just wanted to let you know! That's what this is for, anyway

This is only an experiment, and also I made this around 2012, this was never meant to be finished.
Thanks for the constructive and useful review!

nice progression. relaxing, and kind of emotional while retaining the general dark feel. REALLY awesome progression, and evolution, if it's called that.
will suggest for frontpage
