Beautiful. Not totally keen on the ending though.
Some great sweeping synths at the start.
The repeated notes you drop in give the whole thing a beautiful feel.
When you switch to the faster melody and add in the 'windy' noises, it reminds me of flying dreams. It's all got a lovely dream-like quality.
I personally preferred it without the beats, but hearing them, I start to groove in my chair.
I love the pause around 2:06, before you bring the beat back and totally change the tune from the way it started out.
I'm personally not too keen on the last 30s or so - it's really a retread and the beat could maybe use a few changes. Maybe a new few melodies dropped in.
Also, the way the beat ends, it seems almost 'chopped off'.
I was listening to this on the NGAPRadio, engrossed in something else, so the long pause followed by the 'bonus bit' kinda perked my ears up and got me wanting to listen to this a few more times, which I did.
I find it interesting how it loops really well from end to start, but has a long pause in the middle...
Great track, beautiful work.
Is it meant for the final track of an album?
I can imagine someone taking off and flying... maybe going in a spaceshuttle and bouncing slowly around another planet... or maybe he has an adventure with alien critters and sends a false message back home... maybe the alien critters used to live on another planet, but that was taken over and their relatives were experimented upon? Maybe the astronaut had a trip through their memories, before sending his message back?
It could make a beautiful loop for a game, maybe one about flying or swimming through a fairly harmless alien world. Only if you were to make such a loop though.
you had some nice chilled out synth effects throughout this one, this is something that could put you to sleep... but in a good way. The delay on multiple instruments was a really nice touch... and the grainy pads in the background provide a nice base for the song.
Also, really nice when it starts to pick up w/ drums.
Then the vocal "no sign of intelligent life"... that's nice.
i would like to see more.
check out my stuff sometime if you get the chance... reviews and voting greatly appreciated...
