This song is for a videogame that a friend is making, so this has another name, but DMS is the original one.


Just like the NES, eh?

Anyways, this song is very random without a melody as such, made with the 2A03 + FDS chip.

Sorry for my inactivity, but I had so much problems for create music this year, just I hope that you liked this song :P

See you later... ...but I won't tell you how many time...

I like the cute synth riffs at the beginning, but some of the instruments themselves sound a bit unpolished and/or generic. There’s also a lot of white noise in the background in places, like around :10. Production-wise, the mix is pretty quiet, and the arrangement of the piece is very choppy. There are a lot of sudden changes where almost every element of the texture is changed out for something else, like at :52 and 1:56. You clearly have a good sense of harmony, rhythm, and melody, but I think you need to give the composition of the track a lot more cohesiveness. It sounds like an entire album full of tracks in one. I want you to work on creating gradual and smooth transitions, ideally with multiple common elements on either side of the transition. Don’t get me wrong - there are a lot of good ideas here, and I can tell you’re a talented composer. It’s just that all the different elements of the piece don’t feel like they’re a part of the same story right now, and the piece as a whole doesn’t have an overarching sense of direction or ambition. I think you need to seriously consolidate some of your ideas here, but regardless I enjoyed the mood, instruments, full texture, and rhythmic content. Keep at it, Alexantoro49! :)

Thanks for the review, I know that I have to improve so many things :p

Loving the combination of fast arpeggiating leads and those meaty low bit rhythmic riffs.
It gives an awesome nostalgic brand of atmosphere. Very well composed.

Good job! Good luck in the competition.

p.s. 6:20 - wow
