I love the instruments, especially the one at :09. The melodies and moods are cool and intricate. I've always admired your sense of harmony. That said, I think the fade-in intro to the piece was done a bit lazily and could've been more creative. The ending is much of the same story. It's just a little inconclusive. If you wanted to end with that energetic synth at 3:02, I would've filtered it away while simultaneously decreasing the tempo, just to channel the energy a bit more. Still, I appreciated the structural relief at 1:15 and the following piano melody. You use a lot of cool and diverse sounds in your tracks that keep them engaging and refreshing, yet they're still very coherent. This is one major thing that a lot of NG musicians have not mastered IMO - sound quality and coherence. Yet you have! The next step now is the mixing. Mixing will help casual listeners hear your diverse sound set more clearly and, while I understand that there is a basic level of mixing achieved in this piece, I think you should put some serious effort into improving it. There are tons of good YouTube tutorials, or otherwise just PM me when you need advice about specific things. Also, I don't think your composing abilities are faltering at all. Have confidence in yourself! :D Keep up the good work, Larrynachos. ;)
Thanks so much, TL! I'll take your pointers into account when composing my next piece :) I'm so glad you see potential in me, and I'll keep trying my hardest to be the best I can be!
Cool song! The production here's very good, and you have a great ear for sound design. I just love that drum beat, and I've always had a penchant for vox-y instruments like the ones that come in at 0:08, 1:44, and 2:25.
Compositionally, all the parts flow together pretty well, but it's a bit repetitive. You're doing that thing I do a lot and just letting stuff keep playing and adding an instrument or two every eight bars. Not saying that that's a bad composition, but for me, at least, it does get a bit repetitive after a while.
Great work! I really enjoyed the piece and I'm looking forward to whatever you put out in the rest of the year! :)
I'm so glad you like it ^^
Yeah, it's a bit repetitive. That's why I'm trying to wean myself off of trance music. Problem is, trance/techno music is the easiest.
To be honest, I think that the music flows really well. It gives the soothing feel and engaging. I for one love it!
Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed it :)
