This is totally drawing inspiration.. if only I felt creative xD
i seriously love this kind of music. especially the intro. the harmony is AMAZiNG. the instruments are awesome, and the drums are mixed just right. the only reason it's not 10/10 is because the reverb is a bit much.
I think I have a job for you for my games background music :)
Sonic the Hedgehog needs this title within it's next release.
Right off the bat, you have an amazing sense of buildup and good chords to go with it. Then the kick comes in, and it seems as though the frequencies go through the roof.
But that soon dissipates, and any such sense is compensated for by the fact that you are quite fluid and dynamic in the way you develop this piece. You diversify a lot, but then you stick to one set of chords as a theme by which this piece will end.
This piece is very chill, but just gives me the 'office' impression -- the end is memorable because of that theme you use, but it strikes me as phone advertisement music to a degree: very atmospheric, but a portion of this piece hasn't grabbed me. It takes a while for me to be close to immersed. Something is being dragged out -- some might say the intro, some might say the ending, but I am certainly getting that impression.
Good work, but I was looking to be taken hook, line and sinker by this piece -- didn't quite get there.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
