Well it was different
I have never really heard a track like this on NG before.You dare to be different.The beginning was real....odd.But it doesn't mean it wasn't good.At 0:50 you started to do something which had a nice beat to it.After another minute it got better and more in to it.I can't really describe what it was but you made a great move adding it in there(what ever it was).But after 20 seconds it got GREAT.And it was like that for another minute and then it started to close up and come to an end.The last 10 seconds there was nothing there.So you really didn't need the extra time
It took a while to get to the good part and there was some extra time in there that wasn't needed(the ending)Thats it
Was there animal sounds?And did you use any type of vocals in there?

Thanks for the nice review.
-Answer to question-
There are animal sounds, subtle bird chirping that comes in and out of focus every now and then. Also, the last ten seconds at the end do have something in them, it has a few seconds of bird chirping, and then the chirping sort of fade-echos out. Also, there are no vocals.
A very good entry to the contest, though I'm not very familiar with Papua New Guinea, and can't really say the song fits the country. Therefore I'll have to review it as a stand-alone song.
I really like the intro to the song. The white noise and the soft beeps, soon joined by a toned-down rhythmic section. You keep this going for some time, this soft ambient feel, and it doesn't really get repetitive, as it changes up soon enough.
At about 2.20, though, the entire song gets a techno/trance feel to it, and even though it can still go as an ambient track, that can't be said for the song at 2.50 and out. It sounds more like the soundtrack to a somewhat futuristic racing game. Might be the drums, might be the combination of the melody and the drums.
Still, it's a very good song. I see you're thinking of adding animal sounds, I think that could be really cool, but you need to be careful with that. Over-using or under-using can be the death of the song, ya know.

Thanks for the review, and there are animal sounds in there. Just some quiet bird chirping, though.
Techno city at night?
I don't know why, but for me this creates images of sneaking through a technologically loud and obnoxious place at night, when nobodies around and all the sounds have become subdued and calm, it's cool.
I guess that's all that really matters in a song, being able to evoke some sort of unique feeling.
Thanks, that's an interesting interpretation.
And as for what matters in a song, I totally agree with you. :)
nice ambiance, but from what I remember you asked or tips to make it less empty? I have no idea how electronica works, but I heard white noise is good to use to fill up a track. I'd maybe ass some more little sounds in the background.
Nice job, and good luck in the competition!
Well, I already have plenty of white noise here and there, but I am considering throwing in a few samples of animals from New Guinea...
Thanks for the review!
