this is FUCKING AMAZING YOU BREAKCORE FREAK, these drums are perfect holy shit I'm just live blogging while listening to this holy fuck nice strings and piano, very constant, but shit those drums are really the CHARACTER TO THIS SONG REALLY FUCK. god, so impressive what the heck NICE
Thank you, man! You get what I was going for.
Really not liking the almost atonal, random piano and strings going on here. The progression feels neither here nor there. HOWEVER, the drums are pretty well spliced. Love me some breakbeat. Panning is what takes all the fun out of it for me though, and I'm not really able to enjoy the track. Outro and intro are also strange. Sounds like two decent pieces unfortunately laid atop one another.
One of my big influences is Aphex Twin. If you get them, you get me. Thanks for the review!
-PS Random? It is a clear progression to me.
The melody at the beginning is a little square rhythmically, and I’m not sure the mood of the strings and piano fit the glitchy beat very well. The panning on the drums just makes them even more jarring. I think you could’ve gotten away with making a piece that melded these two contrasting themes together, but not at the same time. The main problem here is definitely the way the texture and mood are abused. The piece itself was pretty short and could use some more fleshing out structure-wise. I didn’t notice any mixing or mastering problems. The sound design itself is pretty good - I actually like your string and piano samples, which is not something I say too often. Keep at it, man!
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
