Ok, since people don't really like JAZZ lol I decided to avoid that for now.

This song is more or less an audial representation of what goes through my head when I let everything "get" to me. It starts as maybe not such a big deal, but quickly escalates into confusion, and sometimes anger. Somehow, I feel like we've all been there at least once, but maybe that's just me...

I am 95% sure that "audial" is a word lmao.

EDIT: I think the cymbals in the heavier section should be quieter now.

EDIT AGAIN: Damn cymbals lol...

EDIT X3: More fixes.

needs a better beat and lyrics for that matter.but other than that 2 mins and 23 secs into the song was great!

I'm not much for lyrics, but I'm glad you enjoyed it!
It is a pretty minimalistic piece, isn't it?

Crafty work

Beginning reminded me of Final Fantasy VIII for some reason actually and Giygas from Earthbound and then it became jazzy, heh.

Drums: Simple little drum beat.

Keyboard: Nice little jazzy beat, awesome work there.

Overall: Don't really hear many other sounds on this, was quite enjoyable really.

Thanks for the review, man; this song probably could use more sounds in it, I'll admit, but I'm surprised it went over as well as it did.

Nice song

The music is very good, I like the melodies you came up with. They are really worth listening to.
I also like the mastering, everything can be heard just fine, even when all the instruments play at once.

However, the song gets a bit repetitive towards the end. Maybe you should try to come up with different parts for the song. One idea that comes to my mind is to try to write a short part for every emotion. The hardes thing with that approach would be to connect all those parts together so that it doesn't sound too strange when the song goes from one emotion to the next.

Birdinator99 responds:

You know, that's actually a pretty good idea, to focus on each emotion individually, then linking them together. Glad you liked the song, and thanks for your review!

Catchy, but repetitive.

I think that this piece could easily be used for a lot of parts, be it menus, or even as a backing track for certain games, but the way that it is set out, there need to be a few changes, just to get it back to where I feel you're aiming for:

1) Some of the notes have a little too much high-end feedback interference (static). This mostly occurs in the drum and cymbal notes at around 2.30. Try quietening these down a little, just to smooth that part over and then you'll have a much better piece.

2) More variation is required. Perhaps something can be done with the synths, taking it away from what sounds like a basic child's game theme, giving them an alternative sound or dynamic, similar to what you started the track with, but then cut out after the first minute. This was good and a little underplayed in my opinion.

3) Try cutting out the long pause between the intro and the main part of the tune, it sounds untidy, as if there are two tunes that you've got in this submission.

Birdinator99 responds:

Thanks for the review, and I totally know where you're coming from on the cymbal thing -- I spent a little time trying to rework it but apparently not enough.

lol don't worry I'm working on variation and transitions.

Not too catchy...


That said it was something I could listen too, & I must say out of all the audio submissions I've listened to, yours has the best use Of dynamic sounds I've ever heard.

Perhaps this kind of music isn't my cup of tea so to speak...
Still I think you should take pride in how this piece turned out.
