Recorded with my Yamaha MM6 and Logic Express, as part of my "Translucence" instrumental project. With guest guitar from my friend walker!


Interesting piece of music!

I like how much variance you have in your songs, that is something I strive for as well, little to no repetition at all. But 30 seconds in, it is already tedious... That is just an overwhelmingly boring transition. 0:57 was a nice change. But just when I was getting tired of this song, 1:51 came along and was absolutely amazing! Then 2:27 was even better! The jazz soloing at 3:03 was brilliant! 3:40 to 5 minutes (worst part was 4:03; best part was 4:33 - sounds like "The Lost Sounds") was a little bit boring again, though... I really like a lot of the parts in this song. You are a talented musician! I think you just need to work on transitions and knowing when to cut out pieces of a song. All in all it some parts were very, very good... But in my opinion, this song would flow better if you cut out or replaced 0:30 to 0:57, spiced up 2:15 to 2:27, rearranged 3:40 to 5 minutes. The song still works without these fixes, I just think it could be a little bit better! Keep up the good work! I can see you writing some very powerful music!

Thank you veryyy much for so much feedback good sir! Im really glad you liked the variance in my music because that's mostly what Im going for: not really fitting into one genre. This was a song I wrote a couple of months ago so I can easily look back now and see what all I should have changed and you're completely right, it gets very repetitious at many places and I really should have structured it better, both of which are things I will certainly keep in mind when writing future pieces. Again thank you for the feedback my friend, Im so glad you enjoyed it as much as you did!
