fl 11 demo



Rated 4 / 5 stars

As it stands, this piece exemplifies syncopation (if I don't use that term too loosely). I don't listen to many (if any at all) compositions that use this technique, but I am confident in my judgement that it works well how you use it. In a way, your background texture seemingly allows it because of its own indefiniteness, and in addition, the piano, strings, and pad almost appear to be ambient, making the drum rhythm musically isolated from the rest of the instruments. I say that this is the piece's biggest strength, since it makes the syncopation interesting and purposeful.

My only concern lies in the transitions between phrases. The most noteworthy, I sense, is the sudden removal of the percussion when the song loops. It contrasts how it was built up (the reverse cymbal and bass slide) and makes for an awkward transition. It's not anything music breaking; it can be overlooked, though little refinements could go a long way.

As noted: FL 11 Demo. That is to say, good job with dealing with the limitations. I've experienced those first hand, and they certainly can be antagonizing.

Overall, I could see this in some psychedelic, or rather, surreal media because of how experimental and atmospheric this piece is.

Wow, I have no idea what to say. Thank you very much for giving it a listen and giving me amazing advice on it. I appreciate it very much and I'll be taking everything you've wrote into extreme consideration ! !
