Author Comments

(If you use headphones I'm sure the experience will be better :) )
This piece is called "Red Light Syndrome" and is a collab with peachymaiden! and also the fifth composition we make together :D

It's also our entry for the NGAUC knock-out round 2016! :D

Peachy made the vocals, lyrics and almost everything (guitars, drums, etc.) XD the part I made is the piano melody.

You can find peachy's Youtube channel in:


Hope you all like it, see you!

Hi Johnfn! Thanks so much for your support! :D ahaha, yes! mixing is super important

I've heard midimachine's music, and he's awesome! so it's gonna be a great competition.
Thanks again for your words! :D

The atmospheric fade-in at the beginning was a cool idea. I love the instrumentation, and peachymaiden’s voice is really light and flowing. The lyrics at 1:25 are pretty jarringly violent, and don’t really compliment the mood of the piece all that well. The echo effects at 2:14 and other places are a little cheesy, but overall the composition is really strong here. I also think the drums could be a bit stronger in the mix. The chopped-up vocals at 3:40 didn’t fit the character of the piece well IMO. I appreciated the breakdown at 4:18, although the piece drags on a bit long. I like the layered vocals starting around the 5-minute mark. They add a great sense of climax and resolve to the piece. Overall, this is really strong work. Keep it up, you two! :)
