everything by itself is great but it just seems a bit too much things is playing at the same time, especially on 0-17 seconds it's just a big mess of everything and i'm just scared and then you kind of get used to it and figure out what s going on. i'd say that someone with untrained ear would simple hear it like "white noise"
because it's just too many things all at the same time, if you spread them out so it's more like a conversation between the parts and not a crowd of people all talking at the same time, trying to be louder than the next guy, than it would be great, because all the parts are pretty interesting by themselves. i mean ... if there is a guy that you like to talk to ... and you're talking. then the other guy comes in and you're talking, it's all good again. but then if you bring the both guys and try to do it that way , you'd probably not understand what anyone was saying or at least constantly switch between the two. so what we have here is basically a "sum of the parts" = the whole song or rather the arrangement of the each section. but the whole song and the arrangement of the each part should be more than a sum of it's parts. what would be cool is that if you'd give us every channel rendered separately and our producer would put it together in a more organized way to show you exacly what i mean.
so to summarize ... the parts are great , the sum of them - not so much.
it's a very easy thing to mess up in electronic music, because you can essentially have a million things playing all at the same time and not run out of budget for paying all of the musicians that'd play the instruments.
but um ... oh i just noticed the genre , i guess if you went for the industrial , then it was probably intentional, but it was closer to "noise" genre in my opinion, at least with this kind of heavily overlaying\competing arrangement.
not trying to be rude or insult you, just um ... cold objective analysis or simply what i'd say if it was our song, waiting to be approved for uploading.

This was actually recorded live with 12 mics in the room I played a 10 piece acoustic set of drums through a DOD FX86 Distortion pedal micd through a PA with a set of Roland V Drums wired in direct to an RME Fireface 800. The V drums are synths, the end of the song I dubbed in the melody and drones despite my attempt to be completely live. (sometimes you just cant resist)

The noisy collage of sounds is defiantly rooted in a love of Skinny Puppy, Ministry, Wax Trax era stuff. Much like the last track I like to be challenging. Who knows the style may grow on you.

This is actually an older track I was using to try and find the sweet spots in the studio room, I ran a recording studio at the time. It wasn't written either It was an improvisation which Sometimes I enjoy doing. . .

It seems electronic music has lost its taste for sonic sculpture textures. Originally the genre of Noise was Industrial (Throbbing Gristle, Cabaret Voltaire, Faust, etc) being the founders of the genre of industrial as a form of performance art which today is subgenera the Noise.

Personally its all Industrial. Indie labels always love to create subgenera if they think it will sell more. Really there are about a third as many genuinely distinct genres in music as some pompous pop culture luminaries would have one believe.

I would love to continue chatting with you guys and your producer. As you notice my mixes aren't quite there yet and this type of feedback is very critical, we can defiantly benefit from collaborating. I actually have been plugged into the Toronto Scene for years. Including NXNE, Briefcafest, Nuit Blac etc. . .

Once again thank you I never take offense to honest feedback, I'm a big boy I can handle it. Ill defiantly check out your stuff soon (once I figure out who this idiot knocking on my front door is)

Excuse me. . . Cheers!
