Though the transitions aren't seamless, I very much enjoy the feel of this song!
You should definitely have classified it as Ambient though. It belongs in that category.
Glad to hear you enjoyed it. :)
I have moved it to ambiance, and I plan to work on another song today.
It's called ambiance, the genre. And it's sweet. For classical, it sounds nothing like it. For techno, I see no resemblance to any other techno song I've heard. This is ambient music.
The song needs more dynamics, and that's it. But dynamics is a huge thing in ambient music, which is why I took off 1.5 score. The other 0.5 score was taken off because of the unidentifiable sweeping white noise in the background.
I love the feel of this song, and the shifts are in there, which is awesome.
Thanks for the help with classifying this... I never know what anything is nowadays... XD
The white noise was caused by the background synth, which has it sorta built in. I can run a pass on the file in Soundbooth if you think it really detracts from the song and cut it out.
I didn't see the space/techno
Try and make that come out more. I still liked it though.
Thanks for the feedback!
Yeah, it was more 'classical' than 'techno' by a long shot, but the majority of the instruments were distinctly synths... only the cello was a recorded VST. When I make another song like this, I'll definitely use more synths and a faster tempo (as this one was 60 bpm, which is excruciatingly slow for most techno songs).
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
