Great interlude before it breaks out, epic-ly.
First off, what plugin/vst do you use? The percussion gives me a chill throughout. It's dark, strong, and powerful that I could imagine so many visuals to go along with it.
The song builds up from silence towards the upbeat end where you kind of leave some room to put other pieces in. Perfect for film-making indeed. Nice job.
Percussion is a mix between Native Instruments Action Strikes, Damage and Evolve Mutations. Most of my plugs comes from Native Instruments and 8DIO.
And thank you for the kind words!

Pretty exciting score you have here. The drums are very upbeat, exhilarating to listen throughout the end. I'm amazed how reverb makes your beat so epic. The only suggestion I'd give you is that the transitions among the each loop are a tad long which can lead to sudden drop of emotional build-up. If you could weave them together, it'd be even more spectacular. Great job.
Good mix of asian theme with electronica
Beats are okay and keep the song interesting, but I'd suggest you to tone hi-hat down a tad because it's quite sharp at times (coming from right earphone) while snare on the left is distracting.
The overall impression of the song is something between exciting and chilling at the same time, though it might be a bit far away from stratosphere, out-of-world feeling.
Keep it up. ;)
Weirdly nostalgic and addictive to listen to. You throw the beat everywhere from right, center, left, center it makes my eyes roll back and forth. Towards the end, the beat ends a bit abruptly before the tune kicks in to loop, but it's not that much of a big deal. Overall, nicely done. :)
Nice melody....It feels soothing and relaxing to listen to. This would fit nicely with a short film. The silence and softness in the first half does build up to make the second half more impactful.
Sometimes I wish I could complete short tracks like this out of humming in my head more often. :) Good job. I voted 5 for you.
Thanks very much Xyirx! It's a very much just a short 'idea' piece. I tried a few ways of adding on more content to it but it ended up just working out as its own little thing.
Well played, I mean the piano. Extremely melodic and touching, especially alongside with soft strings in the back. I could imagine a scene of a falling rain in the city at night. A lonely girl touches her bedroom window from the second floor and glances down below to see a car accident (sort of weird to get this imagery). I could see slow-moving pictures of medics carrying injured people onto stretchers and sirens roars in the streets.
That's quite the scenery. When I made this, I pictured a storm in a city, however no one was around, the streets deserted and not a person in sight. Myself walking slowly in the downpour, trying to find someone, but finding nobody anywhere. I admit, I was in a bit of a rut... It was kind of depressing. Glad you like the song though :)
Honestly, I feel kind of weird listening to through the whole piece. It's possibly from sharper sounds for everything, especially percussions. You could work on mastering to make your piece sound more wet and softer. The beat is great, and melody sounds promising as well. I recommend adding some groovy bassline throughout to make the song even more interesting. :)
Thanks for the review! Ahhhh I like the sharpness ahaha personally I think the sharpness characterizes it. I appreciate the bassline suggestion, I know the current bassline is quite simple (intentionally, but still...) and I'll certainly continue to experiment with it a fair bit.
I take your compliments to heart broski! And the criticism is much appreciated, thanks for spending the time to listen in.
It's really simple yet captivating. The song progresses very slowly, but when climax approaches (I think it's the vocal that marks this point), it just catches you. Story emerges from the pieces itself even I don't have to try. Very nice piece.
Listening to this somehow reminds me of playing old school platform games eg. Rockman blended with some beach songs. (sorry if that sOunds weird to you) has quite a beat that keeps you moving. Nice job. :D
No, it doesn't sound weird. lol. Thanks.
It's really nice to listen to relaxing piece of music that plays naturally without the mixer effects. It just calms me down. I have to say that I am not expert with guitar, but I find this quite good as it is. You could do what previous reviewers mentioned about redoing some parts with accompaniment. Nice job. ;)
