One Hour Compo - Round 624 (OHC624)
Sep 25, 2020 TheVideoGamer
@LunacyEcho - There were a number of ambient centric hits this week. That's always a good thing.
@Dex - It's more of a shy rhythm haha.
@Misael.K - I mean there is the discord search function, and i already take up half the space with the voting alone. I think Arcana said it best lol, you really are a noob...
@Ethansight - Deep bass, i aim to please lol.
@LunacyEcho - Waterflame - Swirl is such a cute fun bop. Definitely can vibe to that song.
@Misael.K - Slow Happy Hardcore? No offence, i think your not used to genre names lol. I call it Ambient Techno.
@Canamla - Atmospheric Lowcut Hardstylecorejumpmathing. I'm being stupid now haha.
@Misael.K - Antiseptic means to kill bacteria....so would it be Bacteria Dance Music? I'm only joking.
@Canamla/Nick C - Ooooh i know the feeling so well. Every week you guys kill it, so i have to agonise over some entrants. Especially OHC623, between MV and Ashka, it was just hard voting for one......
@JH Sounds - One of these days, i won't have to stay up at 2AM to make a beat. I mean the fact I'm even awake is a privilege in itself.
@Misael.K - You said it yourself lol, i have to be up for it, and most times I'm in bed lol.
@Everyone - Thanks for the kind words! You guys are great at giving feedback!
TheVideoGamer - The title really says it all, this was a pain to work with. I started with an idea, in line with my usual one chord things, but i had a mental strain, so i ended up scrapping the project and started something new. I tried to make a cover of Debussy, but i had some really weird computer issues with the project, which turned out to be the project itself, which i don't get, but oh well. I even tried to look for an old track, but it didn't work. Long story short, the first idea i ended up using, which i could only get 5 minutes out of. It's a little more on the repetitive side, but the chords are beautiful, I'll give it that. Oh well....
canamla - I'm impressed you can get such a great range of sounds for your first entrant. I really like the arrangement of the pad sounds, very etheral sounding. Personally i don't like the main melody, or i assume it's a main melody, it's just a bit of a deep intense sound, that doesn't make it well...known. I still like this a lot though, good job!
Elias56 - I really dig the intro build-up. This feels more melodic than the others you've done, and it works super well. I actually think this is the best track from you to date. Well done!
DarkShadow - I think your secretly a programmer, the chord choices are insane....good job!
A2Z - I don't even know what to say....this is probably the best track you've composed in forever. How does this sound so beautiful, and dynamic. Very close to knocking Ashka off, but in this case Ashka's is a whole different level. Still though, just incredible!
Suzumebachi - You got so much out of a minute.....how. This is just beautiful too, well done!
Misael.K - This too is also really nicely done. How are you guys soo good. The drums and guitar combo works excellently. Well done!
obScene - This is also dope too, i love the melody here. It works with the seriously tight beat. I love how this flows. Well done!
Nukage - Your are amazing at your craft. This is so well mixed and produced. Well done!
JH Sounds - This is a really nice sounding track. Personally the backing track feels repetitive, and similar to last week's, but i really like your vocals a lot. Good job!
ashka -This is not possible, you are not even worthy of OHC, you are worthy of some kind of high end producer. I really don't believe you can get this good of a track in only an hour. WHY ARE YOU THE BEST PRODUCER EVER IN OHC. YOUR TOOOO GOOOOOD. Like i mean it too, my mouth drop open everytime i hear you.
Arcana - Coming from a guy who is finicky about mixing, i will say....it needs more mixing lol. I know you don't mix, it is after all, made in an hour, but i will say this. Some awesome tracks in this compo were mixed well, even in an hour. Just remember i don't hate you as a person, or you as a composer, and i do really enjoy your tracks, as a genuine thought, i have to listen to 18 entrants here, each with it's own style and finesse. So if there is a flaw in the way you've mixed, i might point it out, because what you might do, some people do it differently. So yeah....personally...erm...it needs mixing lol. Mainly the vocals, i couldn't understand what you were saying, without reading the text in the description. Anyways, good job!
DDRKirby(ISQ) - Wow this is really well produced. I love the chords in this one too, they go great with the sick beats. Well done!
ethansight - The idea is excellent, you are so good at layering different sounds. Oof! The main problem for me, is the drums are a little quiet, and the piano is a bit overbearing, but man the idea....oof. Great job!
Dex - Really digging this, the arrangement is solid as hell. I dig the bass in this, so well balanced. For more nuance, i would blend the violins more, but the rest was great. Well done!
NickC - Wooooooow, you always seem to surprise me, with some seriously killer tracks. This one especially. I love how it starts straightforward, and then towards the end, you make it breakcore esk. Amazing dude!
LunacyEcho - Ever get a Siouxsie and the Banshees vibe? I feel it, when i listen to it. Might just my comparisons. I love the vocal and guitar combo. Well done!
Johnfn - Really straightforward cute Johnfn vibe, this is great! Well done!

Glacial Odyssey sounds much like the music I typically listen to when do creative stuff. Did a really nice job with the choice of instruments, and I love the pacing and BPM.
World Within... It's pretty synthwave and I'm a sucker for that stuff :)
