This is actually really cool! First seconds already caught my interest :D
I would love to drink to this, in a pub. That's how you know it's a good piece ;D
No but seriously, this is such an interesting blend of sounds! And pretty catchy melodies too, and most importantly the rhythm! I love all the basslines too, and the way they are occasionally emphasized :O
The guitars (the strummed one, if it is indeed a guitar, and the one that seems electric, or in the very least has some amplifier effect on it; in that case it doesn't even necessarily ahve to be a guitar).
Once again, the arrangement is what catches my interest the most, here. So many cool instruments, like some synths and the organ, all which blend together perfectly, with some atmospheric sounds. I don't even know what genre to call this! I guess that is why it's fusion ;p
This doesn't really sound dissonant either, despite all the intereting harmonies and melodies you concocted.
My one critique is that if you're going to give us such an undefined ending, with some new synth rhythms/melodies jsut popping up, and then just fading out, you might as well have looped this! Since it works perfectly as background music, and it's be difficult to tell where it starts and stops, this could be an absolutely wonderful ost, for a game of the mystery/atmospheric type. Or just, you know, playing in the background while grabbing a few drinks xD
Either way, this is one of my favorites from you! I'm glad I got to hear a new piece from you, this close to the end of 2016. Really nicely done ^ ^
Thanks so much for the kind words, LSD! I was pretty happy with the intro myself, and I'm glad the sounds blend well together. I didn't know what genre to call it either! XD The rhythm may seem so interesting because the entire track is written in 3/4 time, although the pre-chorus melody at :19 is 2 measures of 4/4, so I just added an extra beat after the melody played in order to synchronize them. ^^ That's also probably why the bass sounds so exposed at :24. If you listen for the heavily reverberated, distorted clap during that section, it plays on every 3rd beat. I totally agree about the ending, too. It was entirely lazy of me.
"I would love to drink to this, in a pub. That's how you know it's a good piece" --> If you could somehow leave reviews anonymously on NG, this is how I would know it was from you. ;D
Thanks again for the review, Ale! ^^
