Official AIM2018 Review.

Lot of clipping seems to be going on, enough that even though I really like the atmosphere you're crafting, it's compressed to death -- and I can't ascertain the finer aspects of your track. Were it not so sausage tubed, actually, this would be a total banger. Minus a star and a half for serious clipping issues.

Structurally, it's very tight. Atmospherically, well-handled. Home drive at 2:24 would be crazy sexy with a good mix. As is, it's so loud, clippy, and over-reverb'ed that I can't really enjoy it. Shame too. Was really hoping the clipping didn't persist throughout. You may try going back, turning down all your outputs, and then applying whatever mastering you did here.

Minus half star for the abrupt end at 3:22.

Anyway, despite problems, this song is still pretty catchy. Looking forward to hearing more from you. Thanks for turning out to this year's competition!

---Official AIM review---

I really like the atmosphere at the beginning. The entrance of a couple different instruments at :10 sounds a bit harsh. I’d suggest checking the volume levels there. I also think :16 sounds a bit harsh, this time mostly because of the high-pitched frequencies that could use some filtering out. Despite the really unique sound design, which I found enjoyable, the harshness in the mix continues. Part of it might be that the panning is a bit too far to one side on some of these instruments. The texture is very experimental, and at times it’s hard to discern the moving notes. Structurally, the piece is actually quite effective, especially given the short breakdown at 2:13 before the final climax at 2:21. The bold sound design and harmonic choices generally come off rather well, although at some point I would’ve liked to hear some more melodic content. Perhaps you could extend the breakdown in order to include some of that. You’re clearly very good at crafting atmospheres, but again: the volume levels need your attention. I’m worried about the distortion that seems to be occurring because of the excessively loud mix at :06 and :10. Overall, though, quite a creative piece. Full points for originality, atmosphere, and sound design. Keep at it, Arbelamram!
