After a short amount of time (3 Days), I present to you "Max". I got bored and decided to just come up with something, but I knew if I just spat out a random melody then the song would be meaningless. So I looked for things to inspire me and I decided to go with the character "Max" from Camp Camp.

That's why the song is called "Max". Although in the show he's shown to be a cynical asshole, there have been times showing that he's far from a horrible person. So I wanted to try and bring forth the little kid in him that deserves to be happy, in the form of a song.

Fun Fact: I actually made the "Alan Walker" sounding pluck along with the other instruments... well except for the drums.

Feel free to leave any comments on the song and let me know what you think. See you in the next track :).

I like the pizzicato-y synths at the beginning. The rhythm is a bit bizarre, but comes off as being more creative/experimental than anything bad, per say. The piece has a nice ebb and flow to it, but progresses very slowly harmonically. I like the instrumentation switch-up at 1:18, but the harmonic content is still the same. There isn’t really much strong melodic content in this piece, but the piece does seem quite varied in terms of intensity and structure. The mixing and mastering are strong, and you clearly have a good sense of harmony and rhythm. That said, the lack of variation in the harmonic content really started to bother me after a while. I don’t think there was quite enough variety in the energy and rhythmic content to justify keeping the moving notes the same for the entire piece. I also thought the fade-out was a pretty underwhelming way to conclude the piece and that the instrumentation is pretty generic. Overall, nice job with the production, structural variety, and atmosphere. I’d like to see you do more with some of the compositional elements next time. Keep at it, LordJabeebus!

Thanks for the evaluation :). I'm happy that this time I got a better score, I'll be sure to find a way to make mix things up a bit in future compositions. This was really helpful!

Very Alan Walker sounding, sounds good

LJTLegendaryL responds:

Thank you :)! That's what I was going for. Just wanted to try something a little out of my comfort zone.
