Guess I´ve been very very absent in the past.
To show you that I´m not dead, I give you something to listen of course
This song will probaply be part of an commercial album dedicated to an theatreplay from here some weeks ago. The song itself wasn´t in the play itself but the ppl who are involved in the CD decided to sort out and change some songs. And that´s where my chance is.
It´s still not finished though (not to mention the faulties here and there), since it´s the first time that I´ve to make the music fitting to the lyrics, but I think I´m on a good way.
Comments, suggestions… all is welcome
err… with VIP I meant WIP (Work)… ehem
oh btw. this song is not composed with Renoise only. It´s a co-work with Reason via Midiyoke and Renoise as Master
Still have some sync problems when it comes to rendering due the not so precise bpm settings in Renoise
…and I know I´ve to change the drums too
Some guy called Keith303 will remember them very well otherwise and the AphexTwins too
You´ll probaply hear a weird pulse sound. I used this to pretend the singing a little bit myself. Normal people are using a micro though but mine is borken
So never mind that
I like that. The melody is some sort of dark but “hope” is coming out of it… I do not know how to say it best but this song has a LOT of potential. Definetely not a piece for “commercial” purposes but a nice piece of music. The only thing I do not like is that “demostyle”-synth coming at 1:50 - end…
Its that much a radio kind of song but would certainly fit in a commercial movie.
At 1.28 there is this disted sound which is too sharp hurts my ears…Maybe lower the volume on it.
I don’t get what demostyle synth Dopefish is talking about at 1.50 but if he means the the simple computer lead sound comming in at 2:17 I agree with him, it does take away from the professional sound that is in the rest of the song a bit. It could work but it would need some kind of adjustment. right now it brings down the song somewhat.
always wanted to reply and always fogot to do it, which is a true shame as the tune would deserve a shitload of feedback due to the amazing arrangement we have here and the overall toghetherness of the composition.
what else can i say except that i really really like this, the atmosphere and mood is a bit like we know it from BT tunes, even though this is no four the the floor stuff, but i hope you take it as a compliment which it is meant to be (BT is hella good you must know =).
overall, the sound is professional, mixing is tight, choice of samples & instruments is extraordinary suitable, creativity in here would’ve even been sufficient if spread over three or four tunes and the composition itself is made of pure beauty. what else can you want for free?
imho, bestestestness tune i heard so far from you!
Funny fact is, that I´ve forgot about this thread as well
Anyway, huge THX for that review keith. Kindly appreciated!
Though, I´ve been told that I´ve to cut and change some elements in the song for the album. It has still a way to big electronic touch.
errr… well, changing: not a problem. Cutting and re-arranging: uhoh
