I don't really know what this is, it's like a classical composition with electro sounds or something, I just whipped it out during the last couple of hours, it ended up shorter than I thought, but well, it think it's pretty neat. Please comment, rate and enjoy if possible :)

I like the idea behind it. I do think it could be improved in a lot of ways personally.

Maybe add a quiet, yet rich bassline. Something full and robust, and that has a very soft attack. And keep it low in the mix. I think it would really add a new dimension to this piece.

Also, changing the melody instrument here and there is always a good idea. Although, I do love the main instrument you are using in this song. It has a very interesting timbre.

You should add some piano to it as well. To emphasize the chords. I would really like to hear what that sounds like.

It is really short. You should triple the length, at the least. It is far to short.

But this is not a half bad little tune. Despite how short and simple it is.

3/5 and 6/10 overall. Nice work here.

Best of luck on future projects bud.

Yeah I agree with your review when I look at this song in retrospec, thanks for reviewing. The lead synth is kinda blocking some of the stuff like the bassline with it's volume. Here's a link to a midi where the problem isn't present if you want to take a listen: http://koti.mbnet.fi/a22/constellatio ns.mid (remove the space)

a bit all over the place

never know quite whether to relax, as suddenly a flurry of notes arrive, but i assume this was meant to be.

I like the melody, would nice to hear it returned and developed. And also maybe this arranged for classical instruments, so there are more instruments and its longer.

In some places it seems to suggest a key change nad not change as well. Maybe change this so that it has a new section in a new key?

a22 responds:

Yeah, I realize that the classical passages come a bit out of nowhere and in a hurry, and after them there's this one connecting chord that's supposed to take the song back to the root F, but after all the notes it just seems too fast, should've let it rest there. I don't know about the key change, it's basically all F major with the fast passages in D minor which is the relative minor of F. Also all the underlying harmony gets a bit blurry and blocked out by the lead synth, you can barely hear the bassline and some of the other stuff. I composed this as MIDI and quickly gave it some synth sounds, should've thought it through a bit better. here's a link if you want to take a listen to the MIDI: http://koti.mbnet.fi/a22/constellatio ns.mid (remove the space) Thanks for the review!
