Peril: Free Fall Artist

For those interested, this is the third installment to the Peril series. It's supposed to paint the beauty and chaos of a ship traveling through deep space.

After months of a lack in inspiration, it finally culminated to this. I really tried to balance this one out, but alas, I created this song on my laptop with bass-biased headphones -- so if you're listening to it through your desktop speakers and things are imbalanced in places (i.e. loudness, etc.), this is probably why. It sounds pretty good through my phones, so my recommendation is to do the same; it'll awaken a new palette of sound if you do.

I'm not gonna lie, this song, because of the lack of inspiration, was extremely difficult to produce, much more than any other song I've made recently. If you can't tell already, I'm experimenting with different timings in this song, trying to get away from the typical 4/4 beat that EVERYONE uses. I love the 3/4 beat in this song, but I can understand why it wouldn't be everyone's cup of tea.

Because of the experimental nature of the song, it's extremely difficult to fit it into any one genre. It's certainly not a miscellaneous song, but what type of electronica is it? DnB? Trance? I decided to categorize it as Dance because this genre at least fits into many different forms. But please, don't dock this song because it isn't typical; I kinda figured that one out already. If anything, let me know what you think of the song as it STANDS, not whether or not it adheres to the "code of dance music," if you know what I mean.
Please be so kind as to leave a review, and don't be afraid to check out Peril: T-Minus and Peril: Distant Star, either, for the complete aural story! It seems to be going well so far: I give you initial chaos, a mesmerizing beginning, and now a spoonful of action to go along with it! Stay tuned for the next chapter in this space-style series. ;)

I love the sense of story behind this one. Not sure if I see your spaceship, but i can certainly see something happening behind this music. Excellent mastering, excellent use of instruments, beautiful composing.

Hey man, thanks for the review, glad you could see the imagery in this one. It's been a while since people have checked out my Peril series. I'm actually sitting here rethinking it...I'd love to redo these excellent songs, and add some stuff to them. I know better how to get something to fit into a mix now, so I think I could see some relative success with them. =)

omg this is da' shit

fo' realz: bad ass

mr-jazzman responds:

Haha thanks man! I haven't listened to this one in a while, but it remains a base of inspiration for me. A lotta stuff here that I'll probably adapt in my future songs. =)

love it!

this is my favourite song now and i think it is amazing!

mr-jazzman responds:

Thanks a bunch! Glad it stuck out to you, even though it's not the typical dance song. =)

UR SO good!!!!!!!!!!!!

this is like the sixth song listened to and i loved all of them. i like all your brilliant songs

mr-jazzman responds:

hey, thanks man! glad you liked it, even a "fluke" song like this! =)


sounds like a boss battle inside the internet! i get those visions in my head when i hear a song. some story or event taking place. but the beat is very unique compared to all other electronic songs i heard. this is very good. the bass is just right and it has a very earthy feel to it. DOWNLOAD!!!!

thanks man, glad you liked it! =)
