I love the mood and atmosphere at the beginning. The somewhat arrhythmic church bells add a lot to that mood as well. I thought you had some slight balance issues at :35. The sample that comes in at that point gets buried underneath the drone-like pads you have playing over it. It has a very interesting progression, though, and by around 1:30 it has a different mood entirely - perhaps with the same sense of mystery, but less dark. I love how you create space with your sound design. The part at around 2:15 provided some much-needed structural relief. I also noticed, however, that the high-pitched pluck string sample at 2:55 starts ducking under the mix shortly after that harmony instrument comes in at 3:29. I'd like to see you using more careful Equalizing and panning to make both of those instruments come through clearer. I did like those huge, sweeping crashes you had. It's a smooth-flowing and well-structured piece. The ending was a tad underwhelming IMO, if only because I thought you could've transitioned better into the part at 3:50. Overall, I like it a lot. You certainly have an interesting Far-Eastern sound to this. Keep up the good work, DL2Electron! ;)
Thanks for the review. I guess there are a million different ways on how I could have transitioned and ended it, but this is the final result!
I like the atmosphere, you made some really interesting sounds
Scaling the freakishly long samples wasn't a big pain in the ass as it was for me huh. :)
I've been listening to this for quite some time. Intriguing piece.
You have a nice intro with the harp parts. But the real interesting part is at 2:30, and at 3:23 really just tops the whole piece off with that melody that's panned toward the left... not going to guess what sample you used, but that is some tasteful stuff right there
Thanks, I layered the KSHarp sample with that staccato string sample CelloEns_spic_C3_v2_4 at 3:23
Definitely my favorite submission thus far.
