Thanks for listening!

This is an original. It's happy, hopeful, and makes me think of a futuristic racing video game. A fast-paced whistle duet. I'm collaborating with a friend on this one; he is redoing the percussion.



Techno Whistle Duet?

The Good:
-Oh man, there's a lot of interesting composition in the whistling, I like it!
-Even considering the mixing issues at 1:20, I LOVE those arpeggio, there's a lot of nice detail.

The Not-So-Good:
-The chords seem to be very repetitive, same goes for the bass and drumline. Would be nice if there were a bit less repetition there.
-Transition at 0:25 is meh. Could be much better.
-I was expecting people to actually be whistling in something called a "whistle duet". :( This is kinda disappointing considering that. Please do end up actually whistling.
-1:10 gets pretty boring, there should probably be something in the background for those ten seconds.
-Mixing issues after 1:20 due to reverb and mixing of the same frequencies with the two whistles. There's also a bit of an issue when it goes into the bassy part of the arpeggio, I believe.
-End of the arpeggios at 1:31 is really really disappointing, I thought they'd go back into the melody or something. Also, beyond that until about 2:03, the background is not enough to keep interest.
-After 2:03, the lack of a background also makes it not enough to keep interest.

Overall: This has some pretty cool bits, I enjoy it a lot more than most random music I listen to on newgrounds. It sounds as if there's some real effort put into the melodies of the 'whistle' duet, which I appreciate. That said, after the arpeggios it sounds as if you got bored and didn't feel like putting nearly as much effort in. A piece of music is almost like a kid, you can't just stop giving them love and attention until they're ready to go out on their own! D:


Intro kind of drags on, but that may just be personal preference. The song kind of reminds me of a slower paced sonic song for some reason. The percussion seems a tad generic but you said a friend of yours is redoing it so I won't go into detail. The sounds you have are nice, but it doesn't really go anywhere, it kind of just stays in one place the entire song except for the intro. So I recommend adding in some more sections to this to keep interesting. I suppose it could work as like a one time song in a game or something though.

Thank you for being objective. Agreed about the percussion - it was literally written in a couple minutes with FL Studio's default instruments - and definitely needs redone. I also know what you're saying about it not going anywhere - in no small part due to the fact that there are no recurring melodic elements; no verses. I agree that more sections would help - specifically, choruses and a bridge section. Thanks again.
