Official AIM Review!
Intro sounds like 70's and 80's space movie music. Very synthwave. Mix is super harsh on those highs though. Watch out for that.
Also don't really like that piano synth. Could have better stood in the mix as a saw or triangle.
You've done a really good job crafting an atmosphere around your basses. What's killing this piece for me is a lot of volume fluctuation and very harsh highs and mids.
I especially like the switchup in the bass between verse and chorus. Really brought the track together and kept progression going even when I wasn't sure where you were going melodically.
Also liked your lead writing.
I disagree with TL. I found myself wanting more bass, less lead.
Also, what's with the long tail of silence on the end of the piece? Might trim that.
Thanks for turning out to this year's competition!
