AIM - The Tower

When I was making something for AIM I wanted to develop a second submission something different than before. I wanted to give out some final boss vibes or something intense. That's when I had an idea. To find something that could go well with my 2nd submission for AIM. When I saw @Kamikaye new art I was definitely loving it and his piece " The Tower" definitely caught my attention. This song is something more of a house mix but later on I decided to change it into something different. I know I know, it's not finished yet. I was rushed here and there to try and contribute to the AIM this year so I didn't have time to fully complete it. However, once AIM is over I will be editing it and tweaking what I wasn't able to add currently.

Again special thanks to Kamikaye for letting me use his art this year for the AIM. If you haven't checked his art out yet you're missing out. Dude has amazing talent!


Here's his piece I used:

It was supposed to be more of a future cyber house song but I ended up with a resulting battle start theme. It's not finished yet. This is a rush copy for the AIM. I will fix and add more to it later after they are judged.

This is really good, aside from the sudden ending, there's definite potential to excellence here :)

the song is basically incomplete I was really trying to finish off the whole entire song before the aim contest was over but didn't have enough time. I do hope that once the aim is over it I will work on it a little more and add better parts to it. I also don't like the ending but right now it's what I was able to get through it I actually like the beginning more than I like the ending and I definitely want to add something closer to how it did with singularity. Thank you for your review!

Yeah, this one's decent as is, but I can tell that it was super rushed. I hope you'll work on it some more after the contest!

While I dig the vibe, there are a few things that I want to make note of that could use more time and polish. First off, it's just too repetitive for a 3-minute jam. Because it's so short it really needs more variation.

Secondly, there are several instances where your instruments are not particularly harmonious. Now, while I am a fan of dissonance, the elements still have to sound good together. It's just two or three moments in the entire song, but those moments are wonky enough to be of notice.

Third and finally, the ending, well...isn't really an ending at all. I suspect it's just because of the rushed nature of the track, so I'll chalk it up to that. Hopefully you'll pick it up and flesh it out more once AIM is over. Good luck!

Teckmo-X responds:

Yeah I'm kinda bummed I didn't get to fully finish it. I rushed really quick to try and make it before the deadline. I know it's definitely not perfect and you're right. I'll definitely be working on it and edit before I repost that rework. I think I'm much more proud of Singularity than this one tbh. thanks for your input!
