Ah, I see where the name comes into play here. It starts off giving off one type of feeling and then a little bit more than a minute into the song it changes, etc... Then maybe even a little back and forth of feelings after that too.

Can't really think where something like this could be used in a flash even though I tend to try and think of something. I can say I do like the relaxing beat going into the more quicker beat throughout the song back and forth.

Thanks for the review, I greatly appreciate it.

Nice and relaxing

For what it is, it's really good. The melody is good and constantly changing so I never get bored, but it still sounds like the same song throughout.

For some reason, I was trying to think of what it'd be used in, and what came into my mind was the credits of some cricket show, where it has loads of replays..It has that sort of relaxed feel to it..

Sawdust responds:

Well, repetitivity is a beast I've never managed to slay. Thanks then!


Quite a nice piece that embodies the idea of relaxing after a hard day - I can certainly see this piece as a menu tune, or even as the sort of tune that people would listen to is certain places like surf shops. I can see the relaxed atmosphere that this conveys, being coupled with the scenery of the sandy beach background, just to get people ready for a nice experience on the water, when we all know it's harder than it looks.

I'd certainly recommend that you put a break in the beat and counter melody, just giving the synth a quick solo, just to put that to the forefront of the piece for a short while.

Sawdust responds:

Yeah, it's probably the percussive like quality of the main instrument that gives it that relaxing surf shop feel. Thanks!

Makes me happy

Score: 8 / 10
Summary: Makes me happy
Review: Well, this must be the happiest tune I've heard all day!

I really liked the simplicity of it. But that is also part of what pulls the score down. Drums for example are way too simple to be so prominent. They are overpowering the melody, and there are few different drums in it, few samples, so you should probably make sure that the two are better balanced.

I wouldn't like the instruments you've been using in a normal case, but they fit perfectly here. The melody is great, but possibly a little repetitive as the song goes on. Great loop, if you cut one or two seconds off the end ;)

Work a little on the rhythm, beats, and try to add some diversity.

I swear I heard some melodies from The Kooks in there. I've been listening too much to them lately.
Oh, and take this 5/5. Damn 0-bombers.

Sawdust responds:

Thanks! I really wanted some emotion going on, and all.

Also lol, I don't listen to the Kooks

Cool :)

Not such a bad idea to a song. I quite enjoyed it. Still, it has some problems in it.

I'll start with the drums. The beat is pretty good, but it plays for too long in the song, is way too loud, and overpowers the main melody too much. I only heard about 3 or so drum samples used, so try and vary those too.

The main tune repeated itself quite a lot throughout the song. It's relaxing, and the instruments you chose are perfect, but it got a little boring to hear after repeating itself so much.

The ending sounds like it would make a good loop, but there was some silence after which made it a song. I think as a loop, it would sound better, or at least give it a good note to end with if you really want a song instead.

Transitions were done very well, and I didn't find even one transition which felt off. Also, the song fit very well with the name, so good choice of the name.

There are some defects in this song, especially the fact that it's very repetitive, but the melodies themselves are very good, so keep up the good work :).
5/5 - since this really got 0-bombed O_o.

Sawdust responds:

Alright, thanks for the feedback. The drums were probably off because I EQed them and tailored to them on some very shit headphones, you probably have some rapetastic speakers going on, which must've changed the intended sound I was going for.

As for the boring part, It was probably there because well, I composed this mainly for school purposes, there was a project and I had to write something, so I just had to put really bassy drums and weak melodies, because this was supposed to be sung to. Well, it wasn't used for the project in the end, so here I am, stuck with this, too lazy to tailor it to NG standards.

Yeah, it is a very relaxing song, the subject matter it was supposed to have was about the life and times of this saint :P

And the name, well 'change' was part of the life of this saint, so me being cheesy and original, stuck with that title.

Yeah, thanks!
