Official AIM 2018 Review!
Mixing on your percussion is good. Perhaps somewhat boxy in the low mids but strong. As TL mentioned, the abrupt about-face from sinister sounding drums to jolly good fun absolutely knocked my preconceptions cold, more than once in fact. Very exciting tune.
Piece as a whole is well written. A bit bass heavy, lacking some clarity in the highs. Minus half a star for some tracks sounding mixed too loud/muddy low end.
Compositionally, I have no complaints. What a journey! Complements the art perfectly. I waited a few hours in between viewing and hearing your piece -- experienced an almost synesthesia -- the cat, the flowers, hummingbirds, big, soulful eyes. Instrumentation made the magic happen. Nice work!
Thanks for turning out to this year's AIM!
