Whoops, I almost forgot to review this entirely XD
Well, I'll cretainly not leave an extensive review at the moment. I have a lot to do :/
I still wanted to check in to let you know I think you did a good job with this one. I don't feel like it really needs much complex reviewing. I love the chill synth-sounds that are everywhere. The percussion is good imo, as is everything else.
I can kind of understand how this can be perceived as sad. Still, I think there's much more to feel while listening to this. This is almost like transitional music. What I mean is, I can see a story, or at least part of one, being showed in the background while this is played. That's right; the story in the background, while the main focus is on the music.
Anyhow.... Well done ;)
I often write tracks with a story in mind. I feel like it helps with the overall structure of a piece. With this one I was actually kinda writing a story about myself, which may have helped (or I'm just narcissistic :D)
Thanks for the review :-)
Love the sounds in this and the general mood of the track, very nice, what vsts are you using for this? they sound like chip music sounds and i love that :)
Thanks! I use Zebra 2.
Yes. This is very good. I love it. Keep up the great work! ^_^
Hi Johnfn! :D I'm out of school now, so I'll be giving you some more reviews! ^^ I love the mood and the string/synth combo. It's very pensive and longing, in a way. I love the beat at 1:05 and the funky portamentos on the synths. I like the structure and transitions, perhaps with the exception of 2:41. The drums were kind of increasing the energy a lot, and then it was all taciturn and chill...a little confusing. I like the melodies around and after 3:30 a lot, though. Overall, it's really good! I think you did a great job with dynamic contrast and melodic development, and the ending seemed fitting and conclusive. Keep up the great work! :D
Thanks dude! I'm glad to see you're not dead yet! I've been working on transitions with drums rather than my traditional reverse cymbal crash so I can see there are still some rough edges to work on there. Other than that I'm glad you liked it! :O Thanks for the review.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
