Scanning for Xenomorph. Beep beep beep.

Sci-fi horror, tense ambient cue inspired by Ridley Scott's latest Alien installment.

This song reminds me that i have to finally complete "Alien Isolation". Man... this game gives me so many spooks :c

This sounds cool, would fit right into an Alien-based videogame or a space level. It could be better though, a few ambient noises wouldn't go amiss just to make it that much tenser!

Chickenizer responds:

Thank you for the thought out critique! I agree, I could've put more noises in there. To my defense, time was running out and I had to close this one up.

My only real complaint with this song is the extreme amount of reverb that seems to have been applied. The low end is kind of extreme, so it sounds less like wide open space and more like sitting in a can.

I do feel like you did a good job atmospherically with your sound palette, and this was actually a really interesting listen. Good job!

Would have given an extra half-star for a little more textural variety, maybe some SFX, clanging metal, sparking wires, something, and cleaner mix. You may want to check out some tutorials. Definitely see potential in this piece for you as a sound designer and cinematic composer.

Chickenizer responds:

Thank you so much for this thorough review!

Scoring this is extremely difficult, because I really like the minimalism of this track and I think it accomplishes what it set out to do, but it's also a lot less like music than just about every other submission. The tension is definitely here and every sound from beginning to end just feels RIGHT.

Chickenizer responds:

Thank you so much for your thoughtful input!
