Welcome aboard this crazy starship
Oooh, very nice first post! I think you'll have a growing fan base if you create more spacey things like this, but "WHO" am I to talk? :-)

I kicked off a "SpaceRace Challenge" last year, and you may want to hunt down and comment on some of the entries there, because THOSE artists will likely come back and notice you too, and they have created some good sci-fi music :-) And hopefully you will enter something of your own if/when it comes around again this November!

Good to have you aboard! As for critiques, this sounds good, but I would lower the drums just a bit, they were a little loud in places, but otherwise, the synth melody and sounds were cool!

ttfn,
Drakonis

Aye,
This is a great first post. Please write and post more! Really nice bass pulse. Good melody too, clear mix and lovely sounds. I can see the spider bots running around with the melody and sound at 3:30.

I've found myself busy with other projects, so i haven't been around much, but I'm glad I saw Drak's pointer to your song, here. Nice sounds. Easy to listen to, with good builds & nice organization. Great first post.

the flutey synth line. I can see you shambling along the aisle to the washing machine with the load of laundry. A fun piece. Welcome. :)

Welcome! I know how a busy life can rob you of personal time. That's what makes people here so special. Almost all of us are non-pro musicians just her for the love of music and a friendly and supportive community. The pros are very generous with their time and always help us amateurs out. Nice ambient synth work (and no it doesn't sound like you suck). How do you do the drums, Ultrabeat, loops?

Thanks everyone!
Wow, what nice comments. I am definitely a "beginner's beginner" (this was my first time using GarageBand) so it is encouraging to hear. Sschedra--everything in the song is straight from GarageBand though I tinkered with the sounds quite a bit. I even used the computer keyboard piano--UGH! Went and bought myself a MIDI/USB cable for my piano so I will try not to put myself through that again!!

WELCOME!
I'm pretty new here myself, so I feel a little funny welcoming another newbie. But I mean it. This is a fun first listen to your music. You certainly have a gift! Looking forward to much more.

I was listening to this at work and doing busy stuff, when I realized that this song was resting rather comfortably in my thought processes.
thanks, keep them coming.

Hi SMG.....
I really enjoyed this mix and what you've done with it. It puts me in a mood to go journey somewhere far away and have myself an adventure.

I look forward to hearing more of your music.

Welcome, and take care.

Excellent
Great spacey composition. Has a nice 80s synth feel to it, with a sort of modern twist, if that makes sense? You could up the volume on this, without spoiling the dynamics. I just looked at the waveform! You'd need to use a limiter though to stop the peaks from clipping. Great piece of music, look forward to hearing more.

Waveform?
What is a waveform? I have so much to learn about volume/sound levels/mixing!!

First time ever
in GB?! That's just amazing. OK, I could imagine a couple of places where I would change a thing or two, but it's still a great song. Not many beginners could draw that out of GB's hat.

Thanks for the rendevouz. I've never read Rama, but is a fan of the 2001-series, so thanks for the reading tip as well.

Update
Starlog. 131 days after the previous entry: Now I have read all four books in the Rama series and they sure were great. Just imagine writing so matter-of-fact about things so mind-blowing. Well the first one is more awe inspiring I guess, leaves more to one's own imagination. Relistened to this Rama music and it holds well. Hope to hear more of your music soon. Take care. /Henke

For just getting
here you seem to know what your doing. That and have a great handle on faking it.

With your picture above I'll conclude with, "your a great space case, oh Mad Girl of Some." Good going, will tune in again.

It sets an environment, then keeps it interesting
“The trick™” to this style of music is to “always keep it fresh and interesting,” even as you let the sounds of the various patches remain front-and-center.   This composition definitely does that.   The tension rises and falls, then rises again, then shifts direction ... and then an unexpected new syncopated sound appears (e.g. at 3:26) ... but there’s always a continuity to it, even when the song “lets out all the stops” for the final minute.   All in all, a very satisfying piece.
