Probably my best song thus far, this one is an eerie and mysterious song. I tried to experiment with different instruments and samples. I also tried to test my production skills with this one. I hope you enjoy :)

Feedback is appreciated!!

I absolutely love your music. I’m using good ending in a game btw. Oh and I’ve decided to follow you even though I just found you.

Thanks for your kind words!!! Very excited about your game - make sure you follow the licensing terms though!!!!

Nice piece! I think compositionally, it succeeds at invoking a certain mood and atmosphere. Could very clearly see it in a game of some sort. There were a few things that I really liked, as well as things I think you could improve on and/or take into consideration for next time.

I feel like at 0:24, you need some proper bass. The thing you have here is not nearly low enough and just sounds like an annoying synth pretending to be a bass (although I suspect it's because it's just a poor synth and not that you have it too high). This is maybe my biggest criticism. I like the music box aspect the melody has to it. Seems vaguely Lena Raine inspired.

I think at 0:48, you need to add more melodic and instrumental elements. You have a sick fill there to lead up to something like that and it doesn't happen! Just a small thing to keep the song interesting.

I like the interlude at 1:14 a lot. I think one of your keys on your EPiano (the bass) should sustain with the rest of the notes, just to kind of fill out the rather top-heavy section.

The kicks at 1:39 are a good progression but they kind of clip my headphones out when they're that exposed! I would work on the mixing of that whole section up to 2:27. I think the drums for here also sound a bit eh. You can really hear the low quality of the drum you have here, which isn't always a bad thing, but it just feels so exposed and underdeveloped here.

I really like how hard the song hits at 2:27, although I still think you seriously need to fill out the bottom end BIG time. It detracts from the whole experience probably more than any other criticism I have for you (that and the fact that I think that entire ending section kind of lacks a melody. Maybe it would be a good time to bring back the first one but slightly modified?) Also, I wish we got more of the drums at 3:09! It sounds super good and yet for that entire section the drums stay kind of subdued. If you have the means to create a progression to add to the pace of the song, go for it! (especially in a song like this).

Of and that unresolved ending is very well done. Ending on what sounds like a major 2nd AND a tritone. Wow! Anyways, glad to see that you are happy with how this one turned out, you should be!

Dominuus responds:

Woah!! Thanks for taking your time to write such intricate feedback! I'll keep it in mind when making my future tracks. I used samples from a free sample pack my friend linked me, so naturally it's not top notch quality, which in addition to my poor processing skills, might've made some of the sounds sound a bit lame, but I'll try to improve that in the future!

Also, regarding the unresolved ending, I thought of it as a major 2nd with a harmonic minor note snuck in there rather than a tritone - it's very interesting to see other people's perspectives on the same concept haha

Once again thanks for the feedback!

the piano is pretty good but the bass at the drop is a bit too loud, other than that its a pretty solid song :)
