I like the rhythmic elements and the bells, even if you overuse the bells after a while. I think the chord progression and instruments are a little generic. The synth that comes in at :48 has a lot of high-pitched, harsh-sounding tones that I think should be equalized out. In a piece that’s meant to sound in-your-face, they might sound okay, but I don’t think that’s what you were going for here. I appreciate how you offered some structural contrast at 1:30. As for the mixing and mastering, I think the percussion could be a lot louder and clearer. I’d suggest some compression at the very least, but being a little stricter with the equalization will also help. You clearly have a good sense of harmony, although I think the piece is very repetitive and predictable by around the 4-minute mark, and really shouldn’t be nearly 8 minutes long. It would help if you varied the melodies and chord progression more, but overall I think you simply don’t need to drag out the structure of the piece for this long. I think you’d be better off keeping this as a 4-minute loop. Still, the mood and melodies are still very enjoyable. Keep at it, LakePixel! :)
Sweet, I like it!
