Oh wow, I love this.

LexRodent responds:

Thanks.
I've been thinking about doing a jazz-like version of this one.

Everything fits real good in here. That low growly bass to go with the high pitched chimes give it a darkness to the happy-twinkly stars imagery of yours I agree with. Nice!

LexRodent responds:

I had to do this piece on a time limit, and couldn't find any good idea for an additional line.
Heavily contrasting sounds seemed like a good solution, nice to know it worked.

Instruments fit together very well. The bright lead stands out from the dark bass and drums, while still maintaining a connection. But the most important aspect for me are the drums. I feel that they are the glue of this track.

This is however quite repetitive, as there isn't much change in the main structure through the song. It could use some more effects, and maybe a bit variation in instruments.

I get really steampunkish feeling from this. I picture tall stained towers and long lines of coal miners slouching through never ending thick black mist.

LexRodent responds:

Thanks for the review.
I'll try to find a new synth to give it more variety, an instrument change in the middle could make a big difference, as well as an extra line on the second part's background.
I'm glad you had such a cool imagery from this piece.

>>When was the last time you saw a sky full of stars ?

When the light pollution in my city erased them in the sky completely. :(

LexRodent responds:

That's precisely what I had in mind doing this track my fellow.
