I made this for Salsa Compo V, with the intent of imitating LucidShadowDreamer and LunacyEcho. I thought "Beyond the Shadow" would be an apt title considering that LunacyEcho makes a lot of exultant music, whereas LSD's music tends to evoke a wider array of emotions while having a more somber overall sound.



Rated 4 / 5 stars

I like the majestic vibe. Sounds very humanized, and the pads were a nice touch. I think the beat is a little heavy for the mood of the piece. I would suggest replacing that bassy kick with a more mellow percussive instrument - toms or conga, perhaps. I also thought the transition at 1:22 was a little sudden. The piece gradually gets more energetic, which helps keep me engaged, although I really think you could've found a smoother way of transitioning back into the relaxed part at 2:00. I think you do a great job of emulating LSD and LE's styles, though. The string sample at 2:20 sounded pretty fake, and I think the ending could've sounded more conclusive. Still, it's an enjoyable piece overall. I especially like the melodies and mastering. Keep it up, BO! ;)

I'm glad it sounds humanized; I spent most of my time on that!

I agree with your critique, so there's not much else I can say :) Most sound design choices were made on a whim, which is a habit I'm trying to break.

Thanks for the review!
