First of all: Can someone please tell me what genre this is?

Second: This is the first song that I've put emphasis on the sound and tonality of the instruments. My goal here is to have very clean, fresh sounding music. I got the idea from joshhunsaker to do this. I really love the tonality of his music. In this song, I tried to borrow some of his techniques. Tell me how I did!


very nice

very nice, hope you make more

Combine the tonality of this song with the composition of Through the Galaxies and you have what my future music will be like. I hope :)

Thanks for the review!

hey, sounds really full

wonderful breadth to this piece. The "scenery" and placement of everything is spot on. very very good. The initial bouncy lead synth didn't sound like the "right" one necessarily, but later on in the song it fit better, so it must simply have been an issue of timing. Ahh, now however the lead that pops in a 1:52 is just about right, very fitting! I like that. 2:22 ---> Also really cool!!

Yes, another great part @ 2:40. Great experimentation here! This is wonderful!

There might have been the slightest bit too much "weight" to some of the reverbs. Some equalization on the reverb itself might have even'd this out. That's nitpicking though. The chords used were good - I think the initial portion of the song didn't do enough justice to it however. The vibraphone section was a standout.

This would likely be newage/experimental. The boundaries of genres (so to speak) nowadays is all but completely destroyed with the pure wealth of music available out there. It's more of a guideline.

The overall bounciness and freeflowing feeling was very well cemented in by a good song structure. It is in ways very evocative of my own work (interesting to hear such a spin). It's certainly good piece. I think the direction itself is the most positive.

Ah, so "breadth" is the concept I've been missing out on? Keeping separate instruments confined to separate ranges of frequencies? Using the widest range of frequencies possible? That's what I was trying to do with this song. I also picked out the cleanest, purest sounding samples and leads, and added at least a little bit of reverb to everything (more if it sounded better).

The weird timing arises from the fact that I like to challenge myself. Not only did I put this song into 5/4 time signature, but I used a 4/4 beat and just modified it to fit 5/4. I like to do weird stuff like that.

Whether you realize it or not, you have just permanently changed the way I'm going to write music from now on. Thank you very much!

nice song

well ello there i think this would go with the ambiant (sorry for bad spelling) or stay where it is all to geather it was preaty good i like the bassline thingy at the start and through out the song the change up of everything was good the little drum solo before the funky melody kicked in was preaty nice anywho hope you enjoyed my review and buh bye ^_^

Glad you liked it! I'm definately going to be using these new techniques in my next songs. Thanks for the review.
