The busy beat and atmosphere feel like a bit of a strange combo at the beginning, and I think there’s some dissonance between the ambient pads and the synths that fade in at around :18. The drums sound nice and crisp, but the mood conveyed by the texture is a bit confusing. I like the climax into :52, but the string part there felt a little indistinct, further contributing to the bizarre mood of the piece. The mood then changes once again at 1:23, and immediately leaps back to the surreal ambience at 1:52. If you’re going to try to include various moods in your piece, I think you need to combine them in a more nuanced way. It can be really jarring to the listener to hear soothing and ominous sounds (for example) playing at the same time. I think part of the problem is that some of the riffs that are playing at the same time are in different keys. It can be hard to navigate complex harmonic themes without an extensive knowledge of music theory, but until you get more comfortable with layered harmonies I’d suggest making sure that all of the notes playing at once in your texture are in the chords you’re using. Pentatonic scales are usually a great place to start. Sorry if this review is really negative. The sound design of this piece is pretty cool, and it flows well too. Keep at it, TheMajician. :)
Hey thanks for reviewing! This is my first year making music so I don't know much music theory, i have progressed since this song but I still don't know much. Thanks again!
Cool love the drop!
