I could listen to this on loop for quite a long time. Enjoy. :)



Rated 1 / 5 stars

Musically inept; an example of bland production

At first I notice the bland and generic use of preset-like synths. It doesn't sound like you actually mapped out those 16th notes yourself, because the harmony you imply is overall, monotonous. Moving on to more layers which again are the same type of preset-like monotonous synths. There is no real connection between the change of texture and is still overall the same harmony. The drums are from the popular drum machine, the 909 drum samples. Although drum samples and loops are pretty similar to one another, this one in particular is really uninteresting and does not spark any interest whatsoever to the listener. The only thing that could possibly grab anyone's attention is the title of the song "Awkward Sex" At the 0:50 mark, a sine-wave like synth is brought into the mix with atonal harmonies, probably not intentional since atonal music takes a lot of understanding of tonal music so that you could avoid any tonal center using only non-related pitches in a way that creates "textures" rather than harmonies. Throughout the rest of the song, new synths which are also presets pretty much follow the same natural minor harmony that you've been implying the entire time. No real melody is established and no interesting harmonic chord progressions are introduced although sometimes great music that stay within one chord can be very interesting, sadly I cannot say the same for this track. To be fair I'm giving this track a 2 because you stated in your author comments "I could listen to this on loop for quite a long time." If you made this for yourself to listen to and enjoy on loop that is good that you are making music for the right reasons. Also, people who think they could enjoy this more than 30 seconds should not be making music, but trying to learn and understand it more so that they don't get reviews like this one.

I think its pretty darn good for having fruity loops for only a week. I enjoy criticisms when I know they would help. It just seems like you're comparing me too much to everyone else, maybe even including yourself.
