Awsome! Love the diversity in your sounds, the creepy feeling it gives and I really dig the soft percussion.

I'm not really familiar with this kind of music, so i'm not feeling appropriate to give big feedback or anything. I just like it very much, well done.

Following ya ;)

Azhthar responds:

Thanks a lot! Actually I´m also not very familiar with this kind of music, so that doesn´t matter ;) Glad you like it!

Although this could have used more creepiness, it still would work quite well with the visual arts. What I think it needs is more notes clashing and semi-tones. The synth sounds actually remind me of the original Freddy Krueger movie, but the glitches gives it a more modern feel. I enjoy the experimental sounds for sure. Inspiring
Listened via crappy sony headphones.... it was a precautionary measure so I wouldn't be freaked out too much. sorry

Azhthar responds:

Thanks! Next time I try to increase creepiness ;) It actually had a lot more semitone clashes in the original programming, but afterwards I used a bit too much randomization on a bit too much parameters and a lot of them were gone... But the randomization also had some advantages, like too make the piece a bit more random ;)

Usually i dont enjoy glitch a lot, but i like what you did here, i don't know if it is the delay or the way you mixed it, but it has a ambiental vibe, i pictured myself in a Silent Hill-esque place while hearing this, definitively has that dark vibe.

My only complain is tat the noise gets kinda high at 2.00, i had to turn dowm the volume on my phones (Something i NEVER do lol), aside from that, i enjoyed this.

Azhthar responds:

Glad you liked it, especially if you don´t like glitch in general! Hmmm... I didn´t realize it was too loud at 2.00. I will have alook at this. Love the silent hill soundtracks although this wasn´t really inspiration for this one.

Reminds me of old Die Form but with a more modern sound. I can definitely see this within a horror movie. Interesting panning on various elements, although for more "lead" elements, every one seems to occupy both L/R field, to me it becomes largely a W-mix, in that theres audio image in the Center, Left and Right extremes, but between Left and Center and Right and Center is more ambient/reverb effect, but no strong audio image.

Listened via both AKG K240s and Dynaudio BM5a/9S monitors

Azhthar responds:

Thanks for the input! Maybe I overacted a bit with the panning ;) I will have a look at this.
