Eric Freeman - Pickle

EDIT: This song has a pretty long intro. If you get bored easy, please fast forward to 1:30 for when the song picks up and becomes more "Ambient House" instead of just "Ambient".

I let my girlfriend name this song. She decided to call it "Pickle". I have no idea why. <_<

This song isn't creepy man it sounds awesome. Makes me want to sleep whilst still being awake.

Thank you! 10/10 5/5 I love this style of music.

EricFreeman responds:

Sweet! Thanks for listening :D


Starts out very calm here. The ambient sound of a 70s beat I see. Actually this sounds like a beat from a horror movie in the 70s to 80s. Kind of makes me think of Phantasm which was alright but never really made any sense to me at all. The whole beat is just completely creepy yet ambient at the same time.

The drums kind of creep you out a bit and make you wish to hide under your bed as if something was coming after you. The synth and bass lines are great here since they darken the tone of the song greatly. Like how around the two minute mark you added another synth that kind of makes it feel a little less scary and a bit more on the corny side. Then it goes up to being light but it still feels a bit creepy.

Overall, creepy horror tune.

lmfao, I never thought of this song as creepy. I tried to make more of chill background music. I guess I failed. :P

Lol, love the title

-While it does start off rather slow it's a damn good introduction to the song. Very soft and subtle with the occasional breakdown. Not too much usage of the pads but enough to give variety. But it's not like this song is anywhere near short on variety. I don't think i've ever come across a song that was so vibrant and full of suprises.

-You've created a wonderful atmospheric melody and the wildlife noise is a nice touch that adds to the relaxing effect. Nice transitions but seemed a little slow to take effect sometimes. Layered well and can appeal to a wide variety of people. Overall an enjoyable song that takes a backseat and lets you relax.

-Maybe she thought the squeeky noises were like pickles or something like that. Could of just been the first thing that came to mind too.

EricFreeman responds:

Haha thanks. Yeah, I wasn't sure where this song was going to go when I started it and I kept adding things, changing things, and mixing them together.

And yeah, I know what you mean about the song being slow at times. However, this was definitely more of a background music piece then something they play out on the dance floor, haha.

Thanks for reviewing!

Haha wow

I remember when Spaceship Ride still had a bad rating. Now your stuff is getting a LOT more attention, haha. Finally.

This song is great. Though you're technically in the running for something I really want (a spot in BBT haha) I honestly hope they consider your stuff. Keep it up!

EricFreeman responds:

lmao, yeah, back in the day before I was super famous :P lol jk I only have eight people who marked me as their "favorite artist" on here. However, I'm the #8 dance/electronica musician in the Salt Lake City area according to ReverbNation: http://www.reverbnation.com/ericfreem an

And bro, it would be awesome if we both got in BBT :)

Great track

I just love how nicely the pads fill up the empty spaces, so it sounds very full and powerful. I agree with Zmip though, that squarey synth, instead of having it come back in you should try something else, something dirty and maybe a little detuned.

I'd also suggest more sidechaining or just a more defined kick, the song kinda melts as it goes along.

Nice work

EricFreeman responds:

Hm...adding something really dirty might kill the chill atmosphere I was going for. Sidechaining is not a bad idea at all, though. I'll have to try some of that.

Thanks for listening and reviewing!
