Went for a more bouncy electronic approach with this one. Was good fun!

This is an Official NGUAC '18 Knockout Round Review

Beginning Comments: It has a really bubbly intro and set s a nice tone. A little quiet but it's nice.

Production / Mixing: Most things here are balanced well. The overall volume is a little too quiet, but it sounded like a finished product.

Composition / Structure: There wasn't much to it. The bubbly synths you have going on at first were pretty nice. The bass gives it a nice happy feel, and there's a soothing choir synth going on in the back. You introduced the happy melody as it was going over the regular structure, but the song felt flat. There was very little development of chord progressions or meshing ideas involving the melodies you used. I would have enjoyed hearing the guitars that you introduced a bit sooner. You do, however, do a good job in keeping with the theme you have when you do develop it. Whatever you've added or introduced does a good job of keeping with a similar style.

Sound Design: Most everything had a quirky and happy style to it. I would have changed probably a couple of properties of a couple things, like the first lead synth maybe felt a little too sharp, and the piano at 4:11 felt too dry. Other than that they all worked pretty well.

Ending Comments: Not a bad piece. A bit too repetitive, but the theme was pleasant.

I appreciate the feedback!

The intro/outro were cool, but the meat and potatoes of this came off as extremely repetitive to me. The percussion and bass really only played two different melodies each (with that one switch-up at 3:38) often leaving the main synth to do all of the work - for five whole minutes, no less. There's some interesting bits around the 4:28 mark, but it seems like too little too late as far as introducing variety.

Karsys responds:

I appreciate the feedback! I'll keep that in mind for the future.
