Report RWS 1-F ReMixing With the Stars: Season 1 Finale: "Touched by a Star" in Competitions Posted March 24, 2013 Kuolema: Where I see the biggest improvement over your older work is that this does a much better job of keeping the listener entertained, mixing things up. It still does get a little monotonous in places, though. The equalization is also an improvement over your older pieces; this is much cleaner, with less instrumental overlap and less muddiness on the guitar. Harmony could stand a little improvement; it seems off where it takes center stage in 2:55-3:11. The piece does have something in common with "Distorted Star," in that they both mix electric guitar and "classic" acoustic instruments (Celtic in your case, orchestral in theirs), but the actual arrangements are quite different. Thanks for the feedback! I've learnt a lot in the last ~6 months and I definitely feel like each track I've worked on in that time has been better than the last. I understand EQ, Compression, etc. far better than I did when I was working on my earlier stuff, so I'm glad that it's a noticeable improvement. Also thanks for pointing out the harmony stuff. It's not really something I noticed while I was working on it because I guess I'm used to stuff that isn't completely harmonic or whatever, but I can definitely see where you're coming from. By the way, thanks so much MindWanderer for running this competition and to everyone I worked with and went up against. I've learnt so much from everyone and have really enjoyed listening to all the tracks.
