The Career Goes Further (Track 11/11)

A song that is supposed to follow up Approaching Black Hole and it's also the finale of The Career Goes Further.

Riddled with fancy basslines, a mysterious pad, and a subtle piano, and slowly becoming increasingly more intense, I tried to convey some of the remaining energy from Pulsar and Approaching Black Hole into this track, as well as recurring the theme of Quasar a bit too, and I tried making it large and epic one last time before the song, and also the project is finally finished.

Nice work dude! You've really managed to nail the Mass Effect / Jean-Michel Jarre vibe with this one.

The transitions between the sections work really well, and there's a nice steady pulse flowing throughout the piece. I could really see this being used in a movie scene or video game.

One thing I would suggest, though, is to try to increase the amount of headroom in the mix. As you can see in the waveform itself, the sound is quite heavily limited, and you can actually hear the compression quite well. This is great for when you're trying to achieve a sort of "pumping" effect, but can be become quite tiresome for your ears at some point, especially when it's applied to the entire mix.

I would try to embrace the dynamics a bit more in your future productions, rather than trying to reduce them. Your final waveform should ideally reflect this as well, but that's just my two cents.

Overall, great work, though! Keep up the good work!

BlighterProductions responds:

Thanks a lot for the review. I got a bit inspired by the song Opening (movement 8) from Jarre’s Equinoxe Infinity album, or Night Ride by Kensuke Ushio, which has a similar style.

And thanks for letting me know about the compression. That was a thing that bothered me for longer, but I couldn’t trace back to what it was. I’ll take it into account for my next productions.

Yours sincerely.

Great performance of this artist. Interesting evolution of a non typical sound of Blighter. Like this one again very much! Please continue to to surprise me.

BlighterProductions responds:

Thank you so much for your kind words. That really motivates me.

This is very cool!

BlighterProductions responds:

Thank you very much.

really well constucted intro the song itself makes me think of a movie track. Over all really well done

Wow, what an impressive finishing touch to your album. It's a very immersive listen and it shows yet again what kind of young talent you are. It might be your best work in a long time.

BlighterProductions responds:

Hey man. Thanks a lot. Good to hear that my song is appreciated.
