Yeah so this was an entry for a NGMT, which required that you only use 4 instruments total. However I screwed it up and this actually uses 5 or 6 instruments, depending how you count the percussion. However it's a fun piece regardless.


Pretty good man,can't wait for your next track.

Thanks bro! Coming up shortly. :-)

That ableton has done wonders for your production. Nice to hear the diversity.

johnfn responds:

Ha! I wouldn't say it was just Ableton... I happened to switch to it at a time when I started to pay a lot more attention to mixing and production quality. Ableton does have a very clear interface - which may have helped me learn faster - but I'm 100% confident if I switched back to FL I could hit the exact same level of quality.

I like the simplicity and emotion. The mood is very contemplative. The instruments and harmonies are beautiful. It also has a lot of form to it, which I like. At some points, it seemed like whatever plug-in you used for the crash got cut off somehow, like at 2:34 and 3:07. At 3:02, the percussion seems a little out-of-place. Maybe you should increase the volume a little more gradually. The instrument at 3:55 was a little too penetrating/loud as well. However, I love the transition at 4:15, and how you end the piece with the same simplicity and beauty as how it began. The structure of this piece is deeply meaningful, and it even loops pretty well. :D Once you clean-up the percussion and transitions around 2:34-3:07 and fix that instrument at 3:55, this piece will be completely perfect by my standards. ^^ Excellent work as always, Johnfn! ;D

johnfn responds:

Hmm yes you caught a lot of my errors! LIke my misplacement of the crash. That was just a mistake. This is all really very helpful. Thanks for the detailed and thoughtful review :-)

It's pretty relaxing. ^^

johnfn responds:

Thanks bro! I always find it funny how people find my tracks relaxing when I find them super energetic.
