Come at me, producers! Do you have your own identifiable style? And you can see various examples of this new genre in several other of my tracks, just so you know.

I enjoy the sound choices a lot. Very relaxing and easy on the ears. I really don't see why anyone needs to have a set beat or arrangment in their songs. What's the point of music if you're only gonna create something that sounds "normal" or "proper" to everyone else?

I don't know what you were doing with the song at about 0.21 to 0.32 but with the addition of that off beat electronic sound, it sounds like you clicked on the wrong synth in the pick from list :(

I can't pin down a beat for most of this song because you keep changing it from a 2 count, to a 6 count, then a 8 count, then a 4 count, then a 8 count which makes it incredibly hard to follow

If you want your genera, to start.... Id suggest getting a baseline in order first

Dear Tox:

Thank you for tuning in to my music and my art. I appreciate your willingness to share tips you think might improve my work. In this case, as in all of my tracks, I made all of the sounds you hear in fm8, so I didn't pick any from a list, and I believe that the sounds are correct for this mix, though of course, slightly deviant from a traditional mainstream production. To me, this is a good thing, and a way I can challenge others to expand their production vocabulary.

I'd also like to say that the structure and timing of this piece is a bit challenging as well. I arranged it purposefully, and made it somewhat of a musical joke that the section breaks off the way it does, and can't really explain this joke in words, which is why I did it in notes! Nonetheless, I believe that the beat and structure of this keeps the track engaging, and allows people to question and think about what they hear.

In this way, I would encourage you to hear and think about why I made these choices, and rather than how they can be changed to fit a more mainstream sound, allow yourself to discover new possibilities and new ideas in a collection of work that seeks to innovate and have lots and lots of fun with creativity. All the best to you, Tox!

Sincerely,
Jay
