One Hour Compo - Round 545 (OHC545)
Mar 21, 2019 Arcana
I thought about Atmospherium and RSK's order, but decided for Atmospherium due to higher coherence and the thicker, more expansive soundscape with vocals. Everything was very up-front, but yet so thick. It was pretty unique and risky but it's paid off. RSK I enjoyed a lot as well.
Great: MisaelK, dhg, DDRKirby, DarkShadow
Good: pandabot, GreyHooves

RSK: I love the distorted feel you create with this one, and those strings are very nice to listen to.
Misael.K: I like the sound design on this one. Creates a very "hopeless" atmosphere, which would be fitting for helplessly falling to your doom.

2) "Unavoidable End" - The atmosphere is crushing. The whole piece is like a slow burn that already starts tough and gets even tougher. Tension building is this entry's strength and I love how that's maintained even as the music draws to a close.
3) "Slice Through The Mists" - This is weird, but the instrumentation and beat are what make this piece, as a whole, interesting to listen to. I like how the constant metre is thrown off here and there. It works structurally and is an oddly enticing way for this composition to progress. Sure it is a tad repetitive, but I think if a minute or so was shaved off, it would have felt like just the right length.
Honourable mentions: Dex (good contrasting instrumentation and sections), GreyHooves (I like the alien-like synths combined with these heavenly, airy instruments), dusthillguy (jarski isn't here; dhg is THE BEST).

Atmospherium: good interpretation of the theme, and good implementation of that idea. I really dig this.
DDRKirby(ISQ): this feels like it's straight out of BT's Movement in Still Life. Great production values.
pandabot: the cute quirky style fits this theme (when interpreted in a positive light: floating instead of falling). Good job!
Random-storykeeper: this is tragically beautiful. The glitching is nice, although at times overwhelms the song (and interrupts the flow, so to speak). That riff from the second part is great.
awesum: Atmospherium, DDRKirby(ISQ), Dex, dusthillguy, pandabot, Random-storykeeper.
good: Arcana, DarkShadow, GreyHooves.
