I like the instruments. The chord progression is really cliche. You have this nice sense of climax over the course of the first minute or so. It’s upbeat and melodic, yet also smooth and tranquil in a way. The little breaks in the pad’s progression (1:17 and other places) kind of ruined the flow for me, though. I thought you could’ve at least thrown in a crash or sweep to smooth those transitions over if you wanted to keep the stop-start pad riffs. Overall, the piece has a sense of continuity about it and bounces back and forth between a couple of different melodies. I really think you should have stripped away the drums and bass at one point and offered some sort of bridge or breakdown for structural contrast. 2:48 begins to serve that purpose, yet it still has a bit too much energy and volume to truly offer any relief from the busy melodies earlier. Also, you need a stronger transition at 2:48. The transition at 3:35, on the other hand, was good, and I love how everything blends together so well there. Very few competitors have capitalized on opportunities for melodic development like you have here. The loop was smooth too. I noticed few mixing or mastering flaws, although the snare seemed like it had to fight its way to the front during the last 30 seconds or so. You have a great sense of melody and harmony, my friend. Unfortunately, you need to create more space between your melodies with dynamic contrast and the like. If you take advantage of opportunities to do just that, this would definitely be a top-tier piece. Keep at it, man. ;)
Thanks so much for the advice :)!
I dig this, haha
Hey thanks! :)
Fairly good song, but the name.... why?
I'll admit the name is a little weird, but honestly when naming these things(and while making them for that matter) I pretty much just take the first concrete thought that pops into my head and roll with it... Which leads to stuff like this 'cause my mind is a strange, strange place. There's no meaning really, it's just random, sorry :).
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
