Wow! Lovely ambient. The reverb'd quality is well done, and the whole scope of this track makes for a nice, relaxing listen. I can imagine this playing on a video game, or an animated film or show soundtrack.
The soft percussion and piano-like pads in the beginning to the sweet pitched synths and smooth arps are what I like the most about this piece. The percussion softly playing in the background doesn't hinder this track at all.
What you wrote out to describe the audio-visual story here was something I could imagine somewhat. You definitely have a solid audio-visual talent.
Best of luck to you in the NGADM. =D
Hey SilverFoxJams thanks for dropping by
I will say that many of the thungs that are so great about this track happened by complete accident. Many sounds were created by simply shooting in the dark and hoping for thr best so its always crazy to me to see how good it all is
This track is simply fantastic, and one of my favorite aspects is that you have a central theme that grows and evolves in different ways. The fact that it came out of the NGCHIPS competition just shows how important having these ways to challenge ourselves really are. The palette that you use to paint this musical masterpiece is wonderfully vivid, from the instruments to the story that is being told. Even though it's just shy of 4 minutes in length, it seems like it's over in less than half that time, which is always a telltale sign of music that absorbs the listener.
There is really just one thing that retracts from the beauty of this piece, and that's a series of low clicks that start around :32 and last for a few seconds. They seem to be caused by that lower, arpeggiated synth which otherwise sounds so mysterious and ethereal. Actually, upon closer inspection, I can hear an occasional click here and there even after the hats come in. But man, that's it.
Your mixing is really nice and clear, and I can listen repeatedly without losing any interest. There's always some new piece of the overall puzzle to focus on, and each of your ambient effects serve to only increase the level of depth. Your combination of sustained pads and more staccato hits is a beautiful thing, and I have nothing but praise for the percussion! So many different elements, from the nice punchy kicks to your snares that make fantastic use of the stereo field, it all just comes together and sounds right. Of special note are the snaps, which you only make occasional use of, but to great effect.
Suffice to say, this is absolutely one of the best tracks submitted to the NGADM Auditions, and you have definitely earned your spot. Best of luck in the Round of 64!
9.55 out of 10
Hey Chrono thanks for dropping by
Oh I hear those clicks now what the crud never heard those before
Thanks for all the kind words man <3 If I'm going to top this in this round of 64, I'd be really anxious to hear it. I don't know how I'll come close :P
It'll be a challenge but I'll certainly try
