Here's a little sneaky submission from a side project I'm doing ;)

I like the atmosphere and mood at the beginning. You transition well into the more energetic section at :24, although perhaps I would’ve kept a pad underneath the rhythmic chord patterns at :14 just to keep it nice and flowy. It’s a little slow to progress, and the transition at 1:36 is a little subtle given how heavy the following section is. That said, your mixing and mastering are both very solid. This piece has a nice ebb and flow of energy, but little in the way of structural variety. I would’ve liked to see some sort of breakdown or bridge section with some stronger melodic content. The beat is exotic and creative and fits the tone of the piece very well. The ending is jarringly sudden, though, and I don’t think this piece would be a good candidate for a loop, either. Overall, this is solid work. Even though this is an ambient track, I would’ve liked to hear some more memorable melodies. I also thought you could’ve done more with phrasing or dynamic contrast to maximize the dramatic and cinematic vibe of the piece. Keep at it, man. ;)


"Before that hacker destroyed my primary data loop; when it eradicated Citadel it ejected the grove where my creations and processing component 43893 were stored. 30 years later, the grove crash landed on Tau Ceti 5"

Very cool. Kind gives me like an old Aperture Laboratories vibe "Hi, I'm Cave Johnson, you know they say 'if i have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.' ...Not here. At Aperture we do all our science from scratch. No hand holding! We just throw some Science at the wall and see what sticks."

The sounds alone would sound weird. But together.... Amazing!

Haha that was kind of the thought process here, just throw a bunch of weird stuff at it, right ?

This song is absolutely phenomenal. But you missed Tau day! (6/28) Should have waited three days to upload it :P

nubbinownz responds:

I missed a golden opportunity!
