I liked the atmospheric elements you introduced at the beginning. I'm not sure why you made that bass synth in there so static-y. Sounds like a preset from 3xOsc or something. It progresses a little slowly, but I suppose that's in the nature of the genre. I love the chill aesthetic you have throughout here, and how you vary the progression by introducing darker chords at around 1:20. I'm really impressed you made this in just 2 hours. Also, nice job with the arpeggios at around 1:45. They add a lot to the piece. I also appreciate the structural relief you offer at 2:50. The piece is quite long, but considering the drone-like quality it has, I'm willing to tolerate that. I think it would be very fitting for some sort of videogame or cinematic soundtrack, but as a stand-alone piece it might need a bit more structural variety and/or dynamic contrast. It can be hard to keep ambient tracks engaging, but overall I think you did enough here. You introduced a couple of new instruments throughout (most notably the arpeggios), and you changed the pacing of the piece at a couple of different points. In the future, I'd love to see some more melodic development, but, again, perhaps that's not fitting for this track. The piece also has a very conclusive ending, which can be hard to find among less experienced musicians. Good job, AdamBartha! I look forward to hearing more of your work. ;D

8.5/10

Thank You for your positive thoughts! Here are some fun facts, because why not...

This song has 6 Patterns, each with a melody for 1 Plugin. I used Nexus, Absynth 5 and Harmless.

The bass synth is actually Nexus and I thought that the low frequency would get along well with a reverb. Also, some higher sounds that come in after 0:10 are the same synth.

The melodies sometimes have (false) F# sounds that turned out to be good, anywhere they are.

This "challenge" was about to make something listenable in a given genre and key, within not more than 5 hours. Just for fun, between friends.


I like atmospheric tracks, this one has a slight robotic-future feel to it. I dig it!
