Btw, the three notes at 3:03 are what make this song good. I always wondered if you knew this. Like, you followed up the 3 notes with more notes to make a longer melody, but you could have removed all the rest. Eh, whatever.
Once the wet reverb stacked clap began it got my attention. This is a surprisingly simple peace but has many interesting undertones and atmosphere fluctuations, which fit really well. The foreground melodies, especially the harp feel out of place for some reason, I am not sure how to put this. The drums are perfect, since it reminds me of those old style rock songs with the very dry toms.
Overall a very atmospheric piece with very many layers to a slice of lemon cake, that zings and zaps across the tongue and leaves a citrus impression on you.(Hah)
It's funny, I actually never had thought that this piece would be as simple as it is, but I've been moving more toward simplicity in my music. I really like having a simple basis and then just diving straight into the depth barrel with sound design and atmosphere.
It's too bad you can't figure out how to put the reason why the melodies sound out of place. :< If you figure out why, do tell me! Learning more about what people like and don't like about my music helps me improve, after all.
Had to take a pause in my judging to leave you this -> A BIG THUMBS UP.
If only we could post images in reviews.... no wait that'd be a bad thing.
Anyways, I could say tons more but seriously, very well done!
Thanks! I gotta know, though...
What is this "tons more" you're talking about? I'd love to know how I can improve. Like, what I did right, what I did wrong, ideas you have to make the piece better, etc. It would be awesome if you could shoot me a PM with that "tons more" at some point, now I'm curious!
Great piece, very soothing, very bright, very atmospheric. Love the background effects.
Thanks! Glad you like the piece!
Tons of stuff going on in the background on this, because of this it sounds really fleshed out. The melodies are really good and there's some awesome composition and varieties/fillers. I really like what you did around the 2:30-50 mark, really neat melody. The pads in the background are awesome and add to the atmosphere perfectly.
This is definitely one of the best songs I've heard from you and some of the best mixing I've heard on Newgrounds.
Dude, Omnisphere is one of the most amazing things ever.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
