In response to Blacklawn, it is ESPECIALLY focused, considering its genre ( or rather the blending of genres).
This is a straight 5*! I love how it sounds almost like a track Kubrick could've used on 2001: A Space Odyssey.
This is a well-done experimental, there is not much to review since I believe it's only a matter of taste. I liked the use of bass, percussion, rhythm variance, sound effects, the loops, everything. It is such a beautiful blend, it could almost be a track from the Downward Spiral, maybe even a different spin on The Mars Volta. I hear a lot of talent, will surely check other tracks.
QUICK EDIT PRESUBMITTING: This is just so good, it gets better with more listens.
Oh my! Thanks! I'm glad you like the track, I only recently started really experimenting with stuff and got myself a Maschine Studio. This is actually the first track I made with it. The workflow change really lets me just get out there and go crazy.
Thanks again for the kind words, I really appreciate it! You can check some of my other stuff from my soundcloud http://soundcloud.com/itbegins . Maybe keep an eye out for the album too (mid-late summer)? ;)
Straight up excellent!
The beginning felt somewhat random, but the feeling became more interesting around the :50 mark. I thought that the kick was also a bit loud. What kind of feeling were you trying to convey with this song? It has a lot of interesting effects and instruments, but feels mostly unfocused.
You might just not be used to the genre. I tried to create a blend of mechanical and organic feeling with the drums and bass being more precise while with the synths I just hit keys. I accidentally had auto quantization on but I thought it sounded good with that.
I recommend you check out Oneohtrix Point Never to get more familiar with avantgarde stuff. It's a whole new world out there.
