I really enjoy the ambience of this track. It starts off calmly, but the addition of a beat and more synths doesn't retract from that feeling; it just heightens it.
I also love the main synth that comes in at around 1:40. It sounds very nice with the music and also does some amazingly sexy note orgies at around 1:59. Is that Fracture or have you just been over-progging lately?
And in comes the mandatory electric piano at 3:30. Here's a challenge: MAKE A SONG WITHOUT ELECTRIC PIANO IN IT AT ALL. :)
The song has some great sounds, melodies, and the mixing towards the outro is well done, but the percussion samples could be louder and could be more velocity-fied. Great work!
P.S. Why is this song called 'Kyeo'? It's an interesting name, but doesn't mean anything from what I can find.
Thanks for the comments.
I have certainly been taking the synths more seriously lately by adding more 16th (and 32nd and 64th) notes to their individual melodies. It'd be cool if I'd managed that with fracture, but I'm not that comfortable with the settings and such yet.
electric piano is a permanent requirement.
as for the percussion, with more recent songs (this one's been completed for at least 2 weeks) I've attempted to add more strength to the bass drum by using various settings to give it more strength and subby-ness. I'll probably just copy paste tracks to resolve the volume issue, though.
The name of this song is inspired by a music zine (Punk rock stuff mainly) called Kyeo Speaks - which I had been reading at the time. It's pretty cool..
Thanks for the feedback!
