I'm posting a few comments on some of the NGADM auditions that particularly stuck out to me, and this is one of them!
Even though I don't think this is the best audition I've heard while judging auditions, it certainly stuck out to me as an interesting track and left me wishing to make my thoughts about it public. You have some absolutely fantastic ideas over here. Your main melody is highly memorable and an absolute blast to listen to. You also miraculously used strings and piano in a dance track without making them sound gimmicky or out of place.
Unfortunately, while you have some excellent ideas, you still have room for improvement I feel. The mix often sounds cluttered with synths clashing left right and centre, and it's far too heavy on the higher frequencies. There are some compositional issues too - I feel like the first minute of the track is a bit repetitive, and the sections in-between your "choruses", so to speak, feel more like filler and less like meaningful continuations of the track. There isn't much memorable melodic content outside the sections in which you showcase your main melody.
Having said that, the one adjective I can use to describe this track is bold. The huge gaps of silence between melodic phrases, the layers upon layers of different melodies, the funky plucked bass, the huge climax at the end... you fearlessly disregarded the overused techniques of a typical dance song and just composed what you felt, and for that I have a lot of respect. You still have a way to go in my opinion, but I'm glad you made it in and excited to see what you have to offer.
Thanks! Those are all excellent tips.
Hey! First off, this song is really cool. I loved how it had a chorus, which some of these songs don't have. It had a lot of different layers in it. Also, I might not be making a Youtue channel for a while, but if I do, could I use this in my videos? I don't know if it what be copyright but I would be willing to credit you in the description. Please respond, and thanks!
Yeah I always try to put a chorus in my songs, and yes you can use the song for your Youtube channel! :)
Oh, this is just perfect. Lovin it.
I'm glad you like it :)
I love your song! It's strangely addictive too, it has a really great upbeat feel to it
Is it okay if I use it as an intro for my youtube videos?
I will credit you and add a link to this page in the description in every video!
Thanks! And yeah that's fine.
