Everything (minus percussion) made from square waves in Harmor.

groovy mate

I like this chipstep)

I like the atmosphere at the beginning and the bright tone to the synths. The chord progression is a bit cliche, but I’m enjoying the melodic content at :33 and the full, well-balanced texture. I might’ve liked the drums to be a bit punchier in the mix, but overall the production quality is quite strong as well. The harmonic content gets a bit repetitive after a while, and I appreciated the element of structural variety once the breakdown rolls around at 1:28. The melodies at 1:38 are nice, too. At some point, I would’ve liked to see you shake up the instrumental hierarchy of this track a bit. The harmonic content and lead instrument are both very similar for almost the entire piece. I appreciate the variations on the main melody at 2:57, although I think you could’ve done a bit more with them besides the relatively simple layering at 3:16. The dreamy mood and atmosphere of this piece are particularly effective, although I think you could’ve done more with the composition here. The harmonic framework, arrangement, and textural considerations are all pretty generic, and overall it sounded like a piece that was almost entirely free of compositional risk. Still, the sound design and mixing are both really nice, and I commend you for giving the piece a tasteful balance of energy and atmosphere. Keep at it, Blackhole12! ^_^
