I agree with Havk about the light percussion.

I personally dont think it would change the mood too much- but give it MORE. Depends on how exactly you did the percussion. Light drumming beat would make it move more- give it more FLOW. When i listened to it- i felt like i was expecting a light beat to make it flow more and make it more exciting and add to the whole effect- help along that awesome little tune youve got - although maybe thats not what you want?

Good, but..

Good song, but it seems to be missing something....
Perhaps a small amount of creative drumming. Some light percussion?
Or maybe a very light guitar bit? Idk. just some ideas.

Tried some of that...but it changes the overall feel of it too much. This bed is one of those ones you're not really supposed to notice playing in the background. It's a little simple for my tastes I agree, but at the same time...it's supposed to give you that mysterious feel without you realizing it's there. There is a lot of good movies and games with subtlety emotional scoring that no one ever notices. Mass Effect, The Fountain, and Unbreakable are a few good examples.


I really like the sounds and the atmosphere to the song. but something seems missing in it to hold my attention to appreciate this song to the fullest. I think its either missing verse structure or enough solid sound to control the structure of the song.

Great work!

GodSpeedIam responds:

Yeah, I kinda struggled with this one. I loved the overall sound of it (which is why I muscled through it and finished) but I agree. Something is missing. Ahh well...they can't all be masterpieces.

For every song on here, there are about 3 unfinished songs I have. This was almost one of them.


Another God$peed song!!! [hr] Oh my God$peed, this is SO awesome!!! I love the ambient (haha) crystal-sounding thing in the back and the higher thing that makes up the melody!
