Art-Inspired Music Contest 2014 Entry #1

BPM: 75
Scale: G Minor

Art Inspiration:


Interesting indeed.

Doesn't really fit with the image for me. I just don't see it, sorry mate. :/

One of the issues that I see in this that I see in a lot of entries so far is a lack of a real lyrical melodic idea. Give this a listen from AoE II: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ehZMQ9Q1Jko. Notice how after the intro section a flute comes in with the melody. Even as the piece evolves and other instruments take on ideas and ostinati, there's always some idea that comes in soon after or at least some variation to keep us from becoming bored with the repetition. After the first stretch of little ideas, the flute comes back at 1:38 to bring us back and we go through the stuff again with a slight variation. As observed by FD, it's a great skeleton, but needs more stuff. ;)

The mixing/mastering is also quite satisfactory. Balance could use work at times, but it's mostly good.

Good work so far, just keep working on it!

My ratings:
Originality- 8/10
Relevance- 11/30
Composition- 12/25
Instrumentation- 6/15
Mastering- 7/10
Emotion/Interest- 4/10

Total: 48/100 (NG: 2.5 stars)

Interesting. Felt a tad bit to repetetive for my liking and I don't really think this fits the image.
Some of the bass parts sounded a bit too "random" as well.
It's really well mixed and sounds cool, but I think it still needs a lot more work to earn a 5.

3 stars

While this piece has certainly a structure and it has the potential for something bigger and more complex, I feel like this is just the skeleton of an idea that needs further elaboration. Adding more instruments and an engaging bass would at least frame the song better as "dubstep", more variations would keep the song refreshing and pleasant to hear.

Well....the picture is rated M, however considering it doesn't really reflect any M rated material, I'll let it slide, it's more about the content in the picture itself. This doesn't really reflect the piece well but doesn't have to of course, but the song itself I feel is too repetitive and has potential yet needs more elements and some of the elements I didn't particularly enjoy like the long dragging whaling synth over and over.

I liked the opening and this is well mixed but it feels incomplete and repetitive.
