A very interesting take on the source material. Now, I feel the bass could certainly use more presence to match the intensity of the lead, which could actually be brought down a little. This reminds me of music from Resonance of Fate -- in the initial town you start out in. Sort of dreamy but down to earth and comfortable. Nice work!
Thank you so much for your response and criticism! RealFaction said the same and after listening again, I 100% agree. I will make those adjustments after the AIM judging is over and replace the file :) Feel a bit frustrated because it was the other way around just before uploading (bass too loud, lead little too soft) and I clearly overcompensated. Thank you again! :) Really appreciate you taking the time to write that.
This kind of reminds me of Phantasy Star Online music a little, which I love. But there's parts that feel there's one element missing. The bass needs to be more present in the mix than it currently is, it's not strong enough to show in the mix as it could. Interesting interpretation of the picture. Very original melodic piece, I like it. I feel the hihat could have a little more reverb on it. I fele the mix needs to be filled up a little more by something missing, another layer of something.
Other than all that, great job.
Thanks, I appreciate the review hugely. I agree with what you had to say. I really struggled with the arrangement and mix of this in general and also feel like there's a little bit missing. Funnily enough, I previously had the bass much too loud, so I possibly over-compensated and turned it too low in my final mix. Perhaps in a few months I'll listen to it again and it'll seem obvious. Thanks for listening, Mr RealFaction and for facilitating this great competition!
Man, this is amazing. Good job! it's like your creations have a life of their own. what a relaxing thought.
the art is also beautiful, triggers emotions, though I don't know why.
My interpretation of it would be of feeling alienated from your former/future self
Thanks, Yardood! :)
