  1. Yeaaah!! Really glad to finally see this posted! It's an eargasmic, energetic and somewhat spooky drum 'n base take on a highly addictive melody. The song is really quite visual in a way and that makes it more alive. Definately a track that you can put on repeat while kickstarting your homework session or if you need to do some rapid house cleaning.

    Thanks for the mention btw :D

  2. 00:00 - 00:20 good start... perhaps try do something a bit more interesting with the high-pad tho?

    First swoosh - use something a bit lighter imo, it's a bit too dominant. Different swoosh.

    00:30 - 01:00 is niiiice. Nice ambient-ish harmonies filling up the stereo space.

    01:00 Like the entrance of a deeper base. Pecussion should be changed up here though I think. Make it more of a drop and less of the very high-end percussion.

    01:35 i'd say remove this part as it merely makes the song more repetitive and it delays the crescendo which is already late as it is. I think the crescendo should be entered after the drop for a bigger effect.

    02:18 - 02:34 remove this part too. Move directly into 02:34 after the crescendo before.

    02:34 Use different percussion as this part is so different from the rest of the song and using the same percussion here kidna blurs the contrast.

    Everything else is very good, you're onto something here. Ending and transition into ending was especially neat. Although that last swoosh felt kinda lost in the mix.

  3. Yeah sure but something needs to happen. Either a drop into something more progressive or some creative ambience stuff preferably accompaigned by some percussion as well for some drive at least. Having the same energy level throughout works for very few songs and puts high demand on sound design and creative ingredients.

    The track you linked to... I can see the influence. I don't like it either :P. It's a weird piece of soundwaves from -79

  4. It is a bit too plain and indynamic. Some cool sounds but arrangement-wise nothing creative is really done. And the pads coming in half-way were going on way long and I was expecting the pads to be some sort of build up to something a bit more progressive. Shorten the first part of the song a bit and make that a chill trippyish intro and then go into something more prog. psychedelic imo. This is a bit too boring I'm afraid.

  5. I'm working on it! Hopefully I'll get a new guitar and new rec-equip before the 20:th november, or else I'll just record a prototype version of what I've got so far, but if I do so keep in mind the recording will become much better in all ways concievable once I get my new one. The core of the music however can still be judged hopefully :).

    So far I've only worked on the guitar parts, I will perhaps add percussion/pads/electronic fx mood stuff/ambient stuff later, depending on how it progresses :). Acoustic guitars will the core however.

  6. Thanks for the crits and comments :). I've been working a bit on a new version, with some remakes in the section halc mentioned. Not sure it'll be good though, but I'm experimenting a bit.

    I'm a bit suprised about the string comments, since my samples are from EWQLG orchestral ;p. Perhaps there are better samples. I could try finding some.

    Anyways, I'll soon be gone for a few weeks on vacation, but update will come when I get home :)
