Noisysundae — Sate Your Musical Appetite.

Here is another menu for another round of Newgrounds Audio Death Match (NGADM) 2017. We actually spent many hours working on the first 30 seconds, while the rest took us only about 3 hours. Also, this is the first menu in the Piano Flavor that is not a piano solo. We grabbed a random percussion sample and make something out of it, something that sounds like someone is drumming their fingers to this menu.

I like the bouncy, upbeat vibe at the beginning. The progression is cool - the low energy section at :55 contrasts nicely with the frantic part at 1:05. The percussion didn’t do much for me, though. It sounds really dry and unpolished, and I wish you did more with it. I thought the change-of-pace at 1:55 was a bit abrupt - hard to anticipate it without much foreshadowing. It’s a cute and fun piece, but I think you could’ve done a bit more with it. Given that it’s a solo instrument piece, I think it needs a bit more phrasing and dynamic contrast to really hit it home. The ending is rather abrupt too. Overall, I commend you doing something so different from what I’m used to seeing from you. I appreciate the balanced use of frequencies and the cheerful melodic content. Keep at it, Noisysundae. ;)

8.5/10

Noisysundae responds:

I admit that I had no idea how to end this, given the time left before the deadline. :P
I cut the bass off that snare sample, that might be why it's so dry. Hmmm, looks like the subtle reverb I added didn't make up for this. :(
