4:19. No idea what genre to put it as. I really, really like this piece. Suggestions?



liking the discordnessness. nice idea, sometimes it sounds like random note choices rather than thought out random sounding discords if that makes any sense whatsoever

hmm...well, just to start out the notes were sorta placed randomly on some tracks, then i'd go back and listen and tweak ( over and over :/ ) until it sounded like i wanted it to. so in that sense, they were sorta random, but mostly i was just trying to evoke a mood/feeling.

thanks for the review.

Pretty good

I like this piece, a little empty though (hence the 7). Don't be discouraged, 7 is pretty good on my rating scale. I never give out 10s, rarely 9s even. (10-Pure Genius, 9-Genius, 8-Extraordinary, 7-Awesome, 6-Above Average, 5-Average, 4-Below Average 3-Poor, 2-Really bad, 1- Awful and 0-Bottom of the pit. ) So I think it's pretty Awesome!
I liked the sounds you used, and the composition in general is really good. Creepy, but I'm sure you were going for that! So I'll vote 5/5 mainly for the effort and composition in general. I see someone 0 bombed you, immature huh? Oh well, I get that too. This would be a good video game song, like in the dungeon or something. You could add a few more low-end elements, but for the most part I like it!
Good Work!

hey, thanks alot for reviewing my two newest songs, that's pretty awesome.

this song is intentionally sparse, but it could of course use more layers and complexity. i'm still working on it, so i'll try playing around to see what sounds i could use in the background that wouldn't ruin the feel of it.
the zero bombing doesn't really get to me, its pretty much only the reviews that matter. so thanks.


Shadowy Figures Were Playing In My Mind's Eye
BEFORE The Track Loaded.
By The 1 Minute Mark, It Seemed Like This Would Make
The PERFECT Score / Soundtrack Piece For Some Eeerie
LightHouse / BeachHouse / SeaShore Suspense Flick.
And Throw In Plenty Full Moon References As Well.

Nice Work.

Thanks for the review.

This track was different for me, instead of trying to express something that I felt in a sorta creepy unique way with hard hitting sounds and creepy synths, I tried to express something equally creepy, a bit sadder, with a whole different set of sounds. So thanks for getting it, and thanks for the kind words.
