Hello! This is a review for the NGUAC competition.

I've gone over one or two general categories of issues specific to your song, and one section of things I think also deserve complimenting. I prefer being very direct with my critique, none of it is meant to offend. Thank you for your understanding!

Constructive Criticism:

- Honestly, the pitched notes here are all over the place while they sit on top of the looped bitcrush drums. I don't think there's too much specific critique I can give, because any individual point I can make won't really teach you what you need here. Instead, what I would highly recommend is to check out this textbook (it's not just dry, it's meant for you to read through and test out the things it describes): http://openmusictheory.com/contents.html Alternatively, I would highly recommend first looking up chord progressions and meter, as they'll provide the firmest foundation for you to start building music effectively. If you have an instrument like a guitar or melodica, you can also look up how to play those instruments and start getting a solid grounding in feeling out harmony and melody. As one last option, I would also highly suggest trying to listen to other pieces of music you like, and pick out the notes in the chords with really any instrument, as long as the pitch is clear. That will help you feel how harmonies and melodies are constructed.

Compliments to the Composer:

- I really appreciate the attempt here, and how you definitely have some sense of how to keep everything consonant. While the specific notes are a tad random, there aren't any dissonances that make this unpleasant to listen to - it simply isn't very developed, as it sounds like you've just started to make music. I want to make sure you know, too... it's worthwhile. Keep learning, keep listening, keep working on music. You'll find so much to appreciate in the music you listen to which you would never have even noticed otherwise!

Final score: 2

Taka responds:

I'm glad that I joined the competition and even tho I probably won't go to round two but I'm happy for the criticism I got out of it to help me grow. Thank you for that and happy judging :3
