Hey, this is my submission for AIM 2017.

It's been a while since my last upload, but I though it might be funny to participate. I've never been part of any of NG's competitions so I guess it's finally time to join the fun.

It's a kind of "Synthwave, electronic thingy with a bit of guitar" tune.

Also it's my first time using the guitar for a NG upload.

Anyways I hope you enjoy my little contribution to AIM 2017. :)

My tune was inspired by ErrorCell's terrific "I Saw The Sky".

Cool take on the subject artwork
Having composed so many styles, it's really great to hear your work on the guitar
The way you write can be heard in your fingers, and thats a +1 from me!
Please upload more guitar work in the future!

Everything EDM said I agree with. I don't like the drums, especially the hihat...no. But it has potential to be a great song, if the drums were good.

Good sounding stuff, however complaints: synth snare and kick are flat. Drum track sounds relatively thin. Hat is a bit too loud. 1:53, there is a wrong note that really just lays it down and takes me out of the mood. I don't know whether this is intentional or not.

Instrumentation, guitar playing is good. Intonation, really quite good. Tone is a bit overbearingly tinny for the piece and would fit better with some delay and reverb to really soar over this instrumentation. As is, it seems quite flat. The background gated arp is really setting the most of the tone. Let your leads play on the mood your harmonies set. A spaced out tune needs spaced out grooves!

I get the sense of exploration from this piece. Points for matching the artwork well.

Coffee-Break responds:

I feel like I've always had a hard time making drums sound good. I've yet to unlock that secret.
The note at 1:53 was intentional - a nice flat fifth to create some tension - but I guess it didn't do the job it was supposed to.
Glad you liked the guitar playing. It was my first time using guitar on a track; I guess that's why the tone is kinda off.
Anyways thanks for taking the time to write a review, I appreciate it.
