Dark Matter (day 1)

Get Flash to see this player.

I set myself the challenge of writing and recording a song from start to finish over a weekend. This is the work of the first 6 hours. I began with no idea at all (no previous tune in my head). Much more to do (full drums, keyboard and guitar parts, vocals etc.) but at the end of day 1 I at least have a song. obviously its not mixed so don't judge the sonic qualities yet but I'd be happy for any feedback. (also note I'm a sucky guitarist so apologies for the solo!)

Not sure
why there are four of these. They seem the same.

Cool idea and a good challenge for anyone! I like the general concept and direction the piece is heading.

I could picture this with a killer female vocal and some deep backing vocals. Also it could work well with a well played lead in a few places to provide accents and breaks.

Sonically, (I realize you are not done), the drums sound in a different place than everything else.

Overall this is going somewhere and I think it will get there well and be something to be proud of. Nicely done... so far.

Thanks for the feedback - the other three was juts some kind of upload glitch didn't notice until you pointed it out - I have deleted them now.

I got the song done - its not quite mixed or mastered (but a little better sonically than this version - Main issue was that it turned out that I recorded it in a key that's out of my range so I ended up singing way too high! you were right about that female vocal !
