Improv on a Dream


Author Comments

Hey there!

I've been sick for a while, but I'm starting to get better. This is a little improvisation I recorded a couple of weeks ago. I played four different instruments on my MIDI controller, and I like the result! The balance isn't perfect, but I personally enjoy the vibe.

Lemme know what you think!

Thanks for listening ^____^

Woah I like it. It's really calm. I wish I could improv like that lol.

Improvising is something that takes quite some practice :p
I want to get better as well!!
Thanks ^___^

I love the mood and instruments. Harmonically, it's a little hard for me to follow what's going on, and I think the high-pitched synth at :09 sounds really harsh. One thing that's really nice is when you slide the pitch of the note around, like at :38. Sounds very relaxed in one respect, but very apprehensive in another. I can't decide if the piece is so slow-paced because the protagonist is lying by the pool high out of his mind or because he's slowly bleeding out on the kitchen floor. Pretty experimental track overall, but the atmosphere is great, and the instruments blend really well together. Keep up the good work, Ale! ^^

Hey! Thanks for the review :)
I agree about it being a bit harsh. The velocity isn't very easy to control on my MIDI controller, but I could've fixed it in post. I also like the bends! I wonder how good they'd sound planned out, since here I just did them every now and then when I felt like it (it's an improv, after all). It's an experimental track indeed, and you provided quite the experimental visual there!

I'm pretty sure this is what whales think of when they're thinking of new ideas for their next EP. This to me is... ocean wavy... this is nice thanks for sharing LSD.

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Thank you! Yeah, it's a bit out there, I suppose. I can defenitely hear the ocean vibe!
