This is still incomplete but It's all I got atm!



Rated 3 / 5 stars

I like the upbeat mood at the beginning. I thought I heard some harmonies in there during the first minute or so, but they were really hard to hear, buried deep in the mix. I'm not sure if this is a balance issue or a mixing issue, but I suggest you find a way to fix it. Also, the rolled synths at :55 came across as a bit jarring and overwhelming. Some of the instruments, like the pads at 1:20, sounded a little harsh too, but I think that this time it's more of an equalizing problem. I like the progression, but I think the piece is very minimalistic overall. There just isn't a lot of fill in the texture to keep me engaged, and it's VERY long. The instrument at 2:59 kind of came out of nowhere. Oftentimes the purpose of having a lot of harmony parts is to connect various melodies and even entire sections of the piece by using other chordal harmonic parts or drums/basslines. That can't happen if you change all of your instruments after one transition. A similar thing as 2:59 happened at 3:40. The chord progression you have at around 4:40 (and other places) is really overused throughout this 8-minute-long piece. It really didn't need to be this long IMO. Btw, some more transitions I thought could've been smoother: 5:37 and 6:56. I suppose I do like the "breakdown" section at 5:57 with the grouchy bass. This is a structurally sound piece, but it's so repetitive that I think you can afford to cut the length in half. The mixing wasn't bad, but with such minimalism it's kind of hard to screw up the mixing. I appreciate how you tried to bring it full-circle in the end, but I think the attempt kind of fell flat because I barely even remember the first part of this piece after the 8 minutes. You have a lot of good ideas here, but you need to work on the transitions and on limiting the repetition. Until then, it simply has a lot of potential. Keep working at it, Wertypopy! ;)
