The starting synths were an area of debate for myself. At first I thought they sounded strange, but they quickly grew on me. I like the phased delay you got going on *that is the effect you used right?*, though I felt that the song didn't truly go anywhere. I know this is supposed to be an ambient piece, but even ambiance can move around a little. Change synths up etc.
Like that part where you introduced the pads. That was really good, I enjoyed that part a lot.
As pointed out the ending was a tad abrupt. Perhaps have a fad out while you loop a certain segment, or have a build up, crash, then just cut it there, let it trail off.
The percussion line was a little weak. But I understand fully how hard it can be to build a good percussion line, so hats off to you for trying at the least. Try to add some reverb to the claps and hi hats, it will give it a more interesting feel I assure you.
From the snares/claps/hi hats/kick I am taking it you are using Fruity Studio's? I use that program, it's quite brilliant really.
In any case, keep up the good fight! There is a lot of good ideas in this piece. I'd like to invite you to check out my work sometime!
Thanks! Yeah you sound like you know your stuff. I do have a lot of problems with how to end a lot of my music, i'm not a fan of the whole faded ending, but I can't seem to get any chorded endings to fit. At any rate, I appreciate the technical review, it helps to know specifically and musically what would benefit. Thanks again!
OK I'm listening to this song as I Review.
The opening synth and melody sounds really nice. I like it in fact. OK now we are in the middle of the song i don't think that drum roll doesn't sound that good for a song like this. Back into the middle of the song now, same as the beginning so I'm not going to say much about it. Ok now its starting to get too repetitive for techno. and the sudden ending. I think you need practice on your endings. For a new composer you're not to bad. I would like to hear more from you in the future. 4/5 9/10!
Yeah I agree with the redundant side of the song. I seem to find a melody, and for some reason work out a piece rather than keep it and build it up over some time. I think my next project will not be so quick, but thought out much longer, so i'll go ahead and message you when I think i'll have it out, thanks!
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
