Tzu - Astral Hypnosis


Author Comments

I'm not sure where to start with this one. I've had various inspirations for this piece, so clashing them together really made it come alive. I'm uploading a project that I really can't do any more for; the seldom EQ work I've been doing is giving me a slight headache, so I'm going to work on it later and hope for the best.

Clashing together ambient melodies, seldom but punchy drums, and space-age themes (like most of my other songs just manage to have..), Astral Hypnosis is a journey through the mind, almost like adventuring through space. The enigma that is the mind and the void that is space are things that are one in the same. I don't think I've used as much automation or effects in any other song, or have come up with a heavy but complex layer of VSTs and sounds to make this song come alive.

I really hope you like it as much as I do, I'm still working on EQing as I type this, hopefully for the best. Please comment and tell me what you think about the song: What you liked, you didn't, even constructive criticism. In the end it just makes a artist like me learn and become better.

Well this was nice i like this very much some good sound you bring, I will mention is that I had fun with this piece and love the talents you bring this piece has a very good domminant sound too anyways nice job


This really hypnotizing song

Very well done.

As a fellow musician, it's obvious to me how much time and effort you put into this one. It's very well balanced and does everything it should do. The track keeps you in the mood, in the motion, which is generally easy to start, but hard to complete.

Very nice; very nice.

Tzunami responds:

Correct. No matter what, the end result for such a time consuming track either ends up a masterpiece or overworked to the point it doesn't even sound good. Balance is a must with such a large amount going on at once. Thanks for the review.

Drum n Kick Ass!

That was very amazing, it was like one of the top drum n bass songs I've heard in a while

Tzunami responds:

Haha, thanks.

It lives up to its name.

I like this song a lot, it has a lot of components that i do like and few that i don't which is why i gave it this score. There's parts that matched and things that sounded out of place, I can start to hear the diversity of your influences about halfway in. Which, has a taste all in its own, but its more like an acquired taste.

Tzunami responds:

Correct. Being influenced by many types of genres always is a double-edged sword. It's true that the diversity can give you a broader range to focus on, but people have to be able to enjoy the level of complexity that you create. Only the listener can truly say if the song is a success or not. Thanks for the review.
