I like it ;)
The harpischord gave it a nice touch, and I like the drums. The sitar (if that's what it's called) had a little too much reverb in my opinion. Minor, but I just thought the contrast was a bit too big, it's probably just me though.
You managed to keep it interesting the whole way through, great job! :)
The sultan approves
this is a really cool composition man haha. you used middle easternish sounding melodies-harmonic minor sounds are my favorite haha. Good selection of string instruments and the bongos give it a real nice touch. The beat is pretty good, and I love when it does the "galloping" rhythm. The riff that you use for the intro was unexpected- and throughout the composition was quite unpredictable yet flows pretty well. I love how you battle between the sitar and the other stringed instrument (harpischord?), and fuse them together in the end, making for some very exotic sounding harmonization. I love the chromatic descending arpeggios and the hooks you use to wrap the solo sections, they also connect quite well.
So yeps, quite a unique sounding piece, but it is a bit empty. Without a centered bassy, thick sound centered in the background this sounds unbalanced. Some soft lowered strings and maybe lower pitched sitar melodies would make a much more fuller sound. The percussion could be more as a bongo by itself is a bit dry-why not some tabla pitchbend slaps for the lower spectrum and a sustained triangle "ding!" for the higher end?
otherwise man, excellent sound here, its always nice to hear something original!
ill deffinitly work on it more!
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
