Week 18 (90MC018)
@Sansero: Great melodies and sounds; and theme-wise, this one is probably the most on point of all! I loved how you let the colors "talk" to each other, with the background pads completing the soundscape of the harmony of two-colored leaves. You really made me smile and enjoy the music, thank you for that!
@JohnGabrielUK: Oh wow, Zelda theme, but reinterpreted - using sounds of my favorite soundchip ever. Very Zeldish indeed haha! Loved the tune, and all the variations you composed around it. (Also, I don't mind the reverb - I'm not *that* much of a purist myself haha^^) If it sounds great, it is great. And I think it does :)
@TheVideoGamer: Damn, nice composition! Great chord prog and very creative elements throughout really spiced it up. One of my favorites for sure, I love the style you used for "Field of Oak and Birch"! Who knows, maybe one day I'll be able to appreciate Gabber more, too, but for now, this is definitely my cup of tea.
@Lyra_183: I know you didn't have a lot of time, but you created something, and I think it's awesome that you did! Nice work :)
@Vaia - I don't remember adding a polyrhythm in, it could be the nature of the syncopation.
@JohnGabriel - Just a standard 4/4 beat, nothing more.
@Vaia - It's not directly on the pulse, there is syncopation, but it is 4/4 still.
@Vaia - Rare cases of me using a more acoustic kit. Not live obviously, but it's sort of a simulation of live drums.
@Vaia - If my theory is correct (And i'm not 100 percent sure, because i don't spend too much time on it) it's a augmented chord...
@Sansero - No that's just a coincidence lol.
@Vaia - Favourites? Ooh that's mighty kind of you.
@Everyone - Thanks for the kind words!
TheVideoGamer - Went for more of a live organic feel, using more strings and acoustic drums. Obviously i'm an electronic nerd, so these are all samples/vst's. It's all nested against electronic elements, so it makes for quite a relaxing ambient tune. The tempo is actually 70bpm, but the background material is playing sort of 140bpm, while the drums are at 70. It's a unusual contrast. The rhythm is primarily 4/4, but it's not on the pulse, so you get a slightly off-kilter feel. It's very majestic and pretty, like what i did here.
Lyra_183 - Jesus that's loud. Nonetheless TVG says hi! Good job!
Vaiaphraim - Extremely pretty, i love what you've done with the chords. It's not something i would expect from Vaia. Some parts jazzy, some parts spacy. Great melodies here, lovely work!
JohnGabrielUK - Ooh chiptune, different from you. Heavy reverb, i'm sure you might have already noticed lol. Lovely Zelda quotation here, really nicely done! Well done!
Sansero - Simple and effective here. Really like the melody contrast (Melody A followed by Melody B). It's very simple, but i actually like it a lot. Well done!
