I made this out of boredom and my newfound love of the implementation of distortion into my music. I think the distortion gives it a nice, low, darker feel to it that makes it less trancy and more something else. Tell me what you think.

I will later be making this into a full song.

Great potential!

I really like your ambient feel. Really chill but still kinda edgy. I think you could do a lot with this!

I have a few suggestions:

First, you really only have about two chords in the whole loop. A more interesting/developed chord progression would make the full song version a lot more engaging.

Second, you have a nice blend of sounds, but you have no real melody. It's really just a texture at this point. Now, I wouldn't go crazy and make some really complicated melody that runs the piece, this tends to be a major NG mistake in my opinion, but if you add a little more melodic material I think your piece would be even better held together. An overarching melody in a higher register would work well I think.

Third, you may want to consider a more regular, steady beat. Your drums are just a little bit erratic, and that makes your rhythm less clear.

Just some suggestions you might want to think about! You don't have to listen to them at all, this is my personal opinion on the matter.

Oh, and I would not be reviewing this at all if I didn't think it had really great potential. I want to hear the full version!

I like how you mentioned it was more of a "texture," that would explain more of what i was going for on here, I made this with the mindset that this was suppose to add a layer of depth to somebody's project, not be a standalone song, and actually, i started this as a song, and i looped this to get a feel of what i'll go for next and i like it so much that i just made it a stand-alone little piece. :3

but otherwise, i know what you mean about the two chords, i usually start adding chords once things pick up but like you mentioned this is more of a texture that i was trying to keep in the same place. ^_^

i agree with drum parts. lol.

but yeah, i'll hit you up when that song gets finished. :P thanks for the input!


You put together a lot of great beat combinations as it progressed and it made me feel like someone was aspiring to do something.

Thank you :3 I would like somebody to use this in something that is a bit steady and serious but not too fast and piercing. ya know? lol
