A hint of Bartok's math-music logic :)

This wins mainly because it's so transparent, even when it gets "warped up" one can still follow the individual parts.

I like how the left-hand seems borrowed from bebop, and to the extent of that it might be interesting to give it a triplet-based swing feel, just a thought.
And maybe a bit more of the retriggering on the melody that you used at the very beginning?

I've always been a sucker for reverse stuff, you used it very delicately too, especially in the way it blends with the (I assume it's a) cello.

Very original, very exciting, very cool! 5/5

Thank you WinTang!

I wasn't really sure where this was going while I was working on it - I have a non-warped version - but it felt a little too repetitive and it had such a low density that it just felt a little too flimsy ya know? Then I was thinking that perhaps this would make a nice intro to something much more typically eloctronic - but again, unless the final had a running time of about 10 minutes or more then this would be a little too long for an intro and to be honest I was much too lazy to really flesh out something that long.

I took the shortcut of manually "randomizing" the velocity data to try to make it sound a little less perfect in an attempt to get a more human feel - I was afraid that almost I over did it though. Maybe I did :D

Either way, it was fun to work on and I'm always glad to get comments from the regulars!

Thanks again!

Some crazy feelings

I liked the piano sound - the reverby sound and the simple melody kinda reminded me of something like the ghost piano in the haunted mansion in the Saturn game 'Shining the Holy Ark'.

I did find the focus was on the melody for too long for my liking though and the melody kinda over-short.

Really enjoyed the trippy bit. I specially liked the way it sounded while it ended.

I reckon you should revisit this, maybe shorten the 'intro' and get to the trippiness earlier, then play about and mess around more at that stage.

Stay funky!

LJCoffee responds:

Thanks -

Never played 'Shining the Holy Ark' but I'll take your word for it.

This was all put together over a few hours one day so I really didn't take as much time as I should have developing things. Your comments are quite valid and very helpful - I think that I'll take the advice that I've been given so far and rework this piece.

I'll drop a line when I submit the next version.

Thanks a ton!

Very mysterious

Well for some reason, this song really reminded me of the intro to the game Max Payne. Very mysterious and creepy. I really dug that piano sound. The warping near the end sounded like the piano was being eaten up by a warp-hole.

Was very great as it is, but I must agree with Kingbastard, that there could have been a light beat and expanded a bit. Still great as it is.

Thanks for your vote, SineRider! You voted 5 for -=LJC=- Laudanum is delicious, raising its score from 3.33 to 3.75.


LJCoffee responds:

Thank you SineRider,

Well, I can always revisit this and add to it.

BTW - speaking of revisiting projects, I still have your Softened Gaze files and every so often I open that up and play with it - It seems so much easier to work on someone else's stuff ya know?

I'll get a few of the different versions together and zip 'em up for you. I think I have two or three rendered out and maybe another couple that I started but didn't actually render. It's a whole series of remixes of your tune - which is awesome - thank you again for sending me the files!

And thanks for the vote!!
