Abendland - Thrillseekers


Author Comments

This song was inspired by an old Photo Album I found when visiting my families home. Seeing old pictures of me and my friends playing in the forest or the creek nearby brought back memories of childhood and adventureship! We were always on the search for new adventures and stories to tell. We all were Thrillseekers once!

I like the apprehensive mood at the beginning, and the adventuresome vibe that follows with the melodic content at :09. The pulse of the strings gets a little lost in the mix at :16, though. I think you need to be careful about equalization here, especially in the lower range. The low percussion at :47 clearly distorts other instruments. That said, the composition here is quite strong. Nice job with the instrumentation, too - the vocals at 1:15 were particularly a nice touch. The transition into 1:57 was a tad lazy, but overall the piece is well-structured and smooth-flowing as well. I think the mastering is the biggest culprit here. Otherwise, strong work. ;)

Adventurous. Just the low end being a bit muddy and some of the instruments felt very dry. The flute melody was fluent and matched well. Great score overall!

Hey daluxmusic,

thank you for your helpful feedback! I will try to work and improve the balance between wet and dry in my future tracks! Thanks for taking the time listening and reviewing Thrillseekers!
