a dark ambient d'n'b track, shortened what was a longer bit of ocean sounds, sort of an extended ending...


Intriguing Intro...

I love the intro for this song. It is very intriguing. It grabs your attention by being so simple, yet daunting. When the song kicks in it keeps that daunting feel, but still has that DnB texture so many people have come to love.

I like the piano a lot. It really creates a mood and timbre in the song that would not be present without it. It isn't anything spectacular musically, but it just has that effect this song is looking for.

I'm not as crazy about the section starting around the 2:30 mark. But I REALLY loved the chord at the 2:59 mark. That dissonance was extraordinary sir. Very classy touch there. Very classy indeed.

4/5 and 7/10 overall. Not bad at all, but I have a hard time giving great scores to DnB and trance. Musically they just don't really offer much in the form of a true composition.

But good work here nonetheless. 4/5 and 7/10 is not a bad score by any means in my book. :-)

Thank you, good sir, for your constructive feedback and compliments, as always!! :)

Hehe, glad you liked my little dissonant fade-in swells! ;P

That small piano part is simply a C-E-Eb motif (or a Cmaj-min chord if you will). I figured the blurring of C major and C minor would add to the overall ambiguity of the atmosphere.

Yes, the middle section might leave something to be desired; I just knew I wanted some contrasting material, with a gnarly bass synth sound... always room for improvement...

Thank you again, and glad you liked the track for the most part! :)
