Thanks for the comment Feter. I'm curious to know how exactly you would modify the synth...it's always cool to get someone else's interpretation of what would sound better, my ears tend to get a little numb to some of the sounds after I listen to it 800 x's.

I like where you are going with this piece, I needed to listen a few times to get a good feel for your work. Very theatrical and dynamic, I would like to hear some 16th note arpeggios to offset the eight note echo style syn. Do not change the percussion! It is light but effective. Perhaps not a melody line, but a theme line that carries through out your. You are off to a great start . . .

Thanks Scaustrita, a huge complement, the word "dynamic"! Honestly, I wish I knew what you were talking about when you say, "16th note arpeggios, etc"...I'm a bit ignorant when it comes that language, I tend go to just follow my ears. I know it's not always the best method. lol. Again, thank you so very much!

Excellent as is...
The only thing this MIGHT be missing is some vocals. Could go either way. I like it as is.

Thanks!
You're so sweet, thanks Doof!

Great atmosphere
i love the chords here and the timpani sounds great, but I've gotta to say that I'd consider completely removing the thin underlying beat and I might smooth off the synth stabs a little. that said, this is a really interesting atmosphere. I feel like playing Dues Ex for some reason....

Atmospheric
Really? I'll have to try that...and yes, I think the synth stabs could flow in a little better, they're a bit to edgy and demanding. I like them with the song but I need to tone em down a bit. Thanks for the advice and stopping in!

Great game soundtrack...
This has a really fun ethereal spooky feel. The one suggestion I would have is to replace the twangy synth stabs you have through this with something else, they don't seem to fit the vibe. I would go with more of a slow-attack pad, maybe take its same notes and position, but use a different synth, something that is high and soft and sparkly? The rest of this is just off-kilter and cool and perfect as is.
ttfn,
Drakonis

Thank you
Drak!! Yeah, I get that same feel about the synth stabs from the others as well. There is something that I like about them though. Maybe if I try blending them more into the background rather than them being so overpowering? But I'm also pretty hip on trying more of a slow attack pad sound as well. I definitely appreciate you taking the time and giving such great feedback. I'll keep playing.

Atmosphere
this is excellent, trippy and weird. Those sounds really spread out well in the mix. This has an eerie feel to it but has a catchy melody, i am really liking this. If it were mine i would be tempted to add so voices or samples to it. It is a perfect backdrop for anything, even some guitar. Why don't you offer it up?

TracyVosh said 3325 days ago (May 16th, 2009)
Why...
I've never done that...how DO I offer it up? I guess I wasn't paying attention in class. haha. I agree, I think it's missing a few layers myself. It's still bones with no skin. I need to jump back on this one, and perhaps offer it up as a collab? That would be awesome! Thanks Tokai...

soundtrack
for a thiller movie. I think it works sweet. I would second Steve's (Tokai's) assessment that if you offered it up for collab you might be pleasantly surprised. I could def hear some dark saturated guitar at work here

Thanks!
Hi ktb, thanks for checkin' it out! Yes, it would be very interesting to hear what someone else could add to or subtract from it. I'd love that actually! Thank you for your wonderful feedback.

yo!
Hey Tracy, I think you should start digging, find some cool samples to lay over it. Its always a fun little project(?). But yeah, some great samples could really complete this if you wanted to take it that way. peace

Thanks MM!
Haven't seen you around in awhile. I appreciate you stopping by. I think that's a great idea...could use some more layers on this soundscape. I started playing around with some and lost my patience, deciding to post without. Hopefully I'll get inspired soon to get back to it. Your comment definitely helps that process...thank you so much!

Synth
If you make another part like the strings the main theme, and use the douning synth as and accent, that might help. But otherwise it sounds great as a soundtrack to a horror movie.

Hey, thank you for taking the time to listen and give such fantastic feedback! One day soon, I need to jump back on this one.

Nice!
I really like the marimba sprinkled in there. Cool synth sounds. I could definitely picture this in a movie! I picture this accompanying some type of spy movie! I think as a cinematic piece it doesn't really need much else. You don't want to make it too crazy and take away from the movie!

WOW!
That's awesome M.R. - thank you so, so much for the amazing comments on this. I wish that I could say that I was movie bound. hehe
MannequinRaces said 3208 days ago (September 11th, 2009)
Yes
Yeah, I've always thought it would be sweet to write music for a short movie or animation, or dare I say it, even a commercial. You know, just to be able to say that your music was used for something. I bet that's a hard field to get into!

Karen!
I just happened to be syphering through and saw your comment. Thanks for taking the time to listen and comment, so good to hear from you! This is when I was mainly working in loops, yes...now I've ventured off to mixing it up a lil - pretty exciting.

Hmmmm...I guess you'll just have to listen to get the full scoop. I don't really know how to play any instruments so my music compilations mainly consist of loops, chopped, smothered and diced in an effort to create my own sound gravy (as much as I c... [see more]
