This is what defaced should have been lol
I know now that the melody spells defaced after reading the description. Unfortunately, that’s a very weird sounding melody that only works if done perfectly. The drop could have done with a more intense beat, maybe the pendulum could have been the foundation of the beat more. For example, after 0:48 the pendulum disappears magically. Poof! Gone. Then, at 2:10, poof! It’s back again. Maybe the transitions between pendulum and not mendulum-driven melodies and beats could have been a little smoother. This seems like an extremely picky thing to mention but it was just filler. The real issue with this song is that it feels unfinished. I don’t mean the parts in the song are. I mean the parts that aren’t are. You mentioned in one of my previous reviews that shorter songs would mean people wanting more from each song and that’s correct. I didn’t want ALL your songs to be short; just a few more, as it makes the whole song feel more complete, as there is less to focus on. That’s why loops sound more complete than 3-5 minute songs. I know I’m late to the party of reviewing this song but here’s a long review for you.
P.S. I deleted my review on Messia terra or whatever it’s called because it was stupid
P.P.S. I just have one question: why theme a song after a pendulum?

Hey Dustified! thanks for the review :)

Look up Inktober prompts and you'll realize why we did this theme for our collab on the 14th

The ticking is actually present for the entire track, it's just less audible in sections that are louder, which makes sense. I actually ended up bringing the volume of the ticking up because people said they couldn't hear it in the busier sections.

We had one day to make this track so I'm not 100% satisfied with how it turned out but for a day it's what we had

ooooooh this one is gooooooodddd
Also, stop being so good or i'll... music you

1f1n1ty responds:

music me i dare you

your gonna make me fail NNN man

1f1n1ty responds:

you got this i believe in you

I love this song so much. I'm really impressed by how you're able to make a synth sound as expressive as a real instrument. I also like that the melodic lead goes into multiple octaves.

1f1n1ty responds:

you can thank miyolophone + ethansight for the lead advice, they're very helpful
