I've been reading a book called "The Mote in God's Eye", a sci-fi novel about first contact with aliens, FTL travel, and interstellar politics. "Mote Prime" is the name of the home planet of the alien species. This song was inspired by the few settings of the novel.

I only got to spend 3 days on this sadly, first day drums and structure, second day keyboard and guitar, and today was lead guitars and mixing. Full time work is super lame, sorry I couldn't get more innovative with this.

This is my first time using my guitar as a midi-controller too. c: mostly it was a keyboard though.

NGADM Review


Atmospheric to the very core. I was blown away when I first heard this track. The introduction is solid in its approach, everything just melds together splendidly and you don't let up at any point throughout the entirety of the song. I loved 2:42 and onwards, everything sounds so mellow and then BAM 3:46 hits and you transition into that synth so nicely. However, my absolute favourite part is at 6:05 with that amazing solo work and that brilliant effect.../drool.

The drums sound just a tad too loud, specifically in the introduction of the track. I found it took emphasis off of the mainstay of this piece: the guitar. However, at times I hardly noticed this because everything blended excellently. At times, the rhythm sounded a bit exhausting, but you changed things up frequently so it wasn't a huge issue.

Fantastic track, keep it up Kor-Rune! You are an expert guitar player, that's for sure. :)

Score: 9.25/10

This is an NGADM Round 3 Review.


What I liked:
-Really nice build in the beginning.
-Excellent work at 4:46 with the panning and effects.
-You demonstrate a mastery of guitar with your solo section, and it is both subtle and effective.
-I really love the big part at 5:44, but it feels like it's been compressed into not sounding much larger than the part before it.

What could have been better:
-I'm not sure the first section needed to repeat itself.
-I think the biggest complaint I have about this song is that you use the same chords, a lot, but you do so with enough variation to reconcile it. That said, I would have liked to have seen more variance in your chord choices.

I really liked this piece (though not as much as some of your other work), and as always masterfully produced. Excellent job!

Score: 9.1/10

- NGADM Round 3 Review -

So there are definitely some solid and not-so-solid parts in the track. The atmosphere is great, and provides a good background for most of the melodic work, as well as combine smoothly with the drums. However, some melodic sections sounded quite weak, and at times repetitive. And the piece as a *whole* felt generally...weakly constructed.

The best quality about this track is definitely its dreaminess. This really feels like it could play during a strange dream sequence, or even during a mystery story, which could help explain the changes in mood in the same setting.

Score: 9.4

NGADM Review:
Now this is a fantastic submission. The atmosphere in this piece is just phenomenal. Great use of instruments, and pretty amazing composition. I was hooked until the end, and the mixing is clear and not muddy in the slightest. Great work!

A few slight issues though. Firstly, the rhythm was pretty much constant, which made it a bit pedantic next to your usual stuff. Don't get me wrong, it works pretty well as a rhythm, but I'd have liked for a bit of variety in the speed and pace of the piece. There was also a small issue with chords being repeated a bit too much, although this wasn't overly noticeable.

Overall, great piece, not your best, but definitely one of your better ones. Keep up the good work!

Score: 8.8/10
