Week 5 (90MC005)
I enjoyed the whimsy and progression of Vaia's track.
I liked the general sound effects of TVG. It had a nice build and the sounds were intense and interesting.
I thought that the modulation in ashka's track was a great touch.
4 entrants, les gooo.....
TheVideoGamer - Experimental to a degree, trying to focus on the hideous aspect of mutations. For the most part i'm using extreme resonance on my saw synths, for a rather...experimental 303 thing. The rest involves pad changes, extremely dense textures, and a breakbeat playing a polyrhythm. The ending goes into super distorted territory. Overall i like this a lot. It's more theme accurate, than say musical. Oh well, glad you liked it.
Arcana - I can see you are starting to get your bearings. So thrilled for you to join the dark side with the FL gang, lol
Ashka - Each chord moving into the next was pure heaven. Seriously i think your are just...too talented even for the top producers. The chords were just soo good. I'm not worthy....haha.
Vaiaphraim - You would make a fine chiptune/VGM composer. I loved the ranged of sounds here, reminds me of a early Phantasy Star RPG. Well done!
I won't bother with all the awesome's and the Needs Work's and that jazz. We don't usually get more than 4/5 entrants anyways, and i think each one was awesome in it's own right. Great work all of you!
@ashka: I think you deserve the win for the chord movements alone. Even without reverb, the result sounds really spherical, dissonant chords mostly, with a sprinkle of hope every now and then :)
@TVG: oooh, nice experiments. I'm not the largest fan of *that* amount of distortion, but I like what you are going for. In a way, I recognize some of my own experimental tendencies - so yeah, distortion is cool and all - but more so, if it serves a specific purpose, rather than being ubiquitous.
@Arcana: keep on studying! you'll find the EQ, I'm sure ^_^ I do like the general vibes, but I think there's way too much reverb on the entire thing, it blurs the arrangement and doesn't really let any clear motif shine through.
@Vaia: while your efforts to vary your track are valiant, you might want to find better chords progressions, rather than just creating a "vibe". I guess the pseudo-chromatic middle part are quite nice, and so is the last part, the rest is ... something :P
