One Hour Compo - Round 622 (OHC622)
Sep 10, 2020 Koekepan
All in all, the standard was very high, and A2Z only came next by a whisker. I wish I could have voted for others as well, such as Suzumebachi and MisaelK, but I only have three to give.

@Misael.K - I wasn't even planning on adding drums, it just came to me lol. It's like every track i make, i end up putting drums in, it's like a habit for me haha.
@Suzums - Better check it out, never heard of it. I wonder though, how on earth a spoon can be used as a murder weapon?
@Suzums - You must be new to white noise haha. That and a series of weird chords, on one pad sound.
@Misael.K - At least it ain't Underworld lol. Now that you mention it, some part of Silent Hill don't sound much off than my track, i only checked after submitting.
@Ashka - I'm glad your into my breathers, although i don't think i should be constantly doing it, unless i want to spread diseases lol. That was a joke, i'll get my coat.
@Misael.K - Lol do you have a timetable of all your moods for the week?
@JH Sounds - Do you need a whole oxygen tank? Haha.
@Everyone - Thanks for the kind words!
TheVideoGamer - This track is long because it's based on a continuous changing soundscape. You would think for this length it's one chord lol, but think again. My main goal with this, was sound design. All melodic ideas to be solely used as texture, not as simple melody. I wanted to portray as much dark atmosphere as i can, even if it means beats, and noise. I think i did a good job here, who knows.
Elias561 - The chiptune vibes are real, and very well executed, it did feel like good ol' NES music. Personally it feels lost, i think the melody (And harmony) could be more grounded, it feels very stagnant and in some cases quite repetitive. Still though, this was enjoyable! Good job!
cotmm68030 - When something is right up your alley, you excel extremely well from it. This theme was your lucky day, because i really love the sound design in this. You perfect it really well, when you go for long sound design pieces, especially a fan of the distant vocals. Long story short this was just amazing, incredible work!
DarkShadow - Always nice to hear some FM every now and again. Good job.
A2Z - Should have at least been 5 minutes dude, this was really good. The pad chords were very haunting and fitting, and i love the background textures. 2 minutes isn't enough, i want moar. Still love it though, well done!
Koekepan - More haunting music, this time from Koekepan. Really like the simplicity in the composition, and the vocals work super well. Personally i think the backing track is extremely repetitive, i think some change is needed, but i love the way you presented the vocals, good job!
Misael.K - Either your really good with effects, or that's the nature of layering every dudes favourite song, into a musical landscape. Now this is great, but i feel it's extremely rooted in low end, and not so much in mids and highs. Nothing wrong with that, just for me it feels very stagnant as a result. Still liking this a lot though, the idea was super unique! Well done!
Suzumebachi - Really digging the 2 half's. The first is very textured ambience, the second is closer to heavy metal, which is always a good thing. Loving the mix man, especially in the second half, oof. Well done!
Ashka - Dam.....i....how is it even possible to make a melody this good.....and the chords...i'm not biased when i say this, my reactions when i listen to you (Even for the first time) are 100 percent genuine. Are you like....superhuman or something? YOU ARE TOO GOOD FOR MEEEEEEE!!!
MisaelK - I don't want to disturb you.....but erm....i think your speakers are broken....
obScene - "This will probably come off as a muddy noisy mess....". I sadly disagree. This muddy noisy mess is such an earworm for me. Very well produced melodies, and some seriously hard hitting distorted beats. Awesome work!
Arcana - The melodies are rather nice, loving the pad sounds. Needs a lot of polish for me, could be mixed a little better, (The drums are a little on the loud side). But the composition itself was nice. Good job!
Silverpool64 - Wa-hoo! It's a me, Silverpool back with another retro styled mix! Rather nice, i must say, if a bit short. Good job!
DDRKirby(ISQ) - Am i the only one that doesn't find this experimental? It feels way to groovy to be experimental for me, i love the rhythms here, and the melodies. Well done!
JH Sounds - Ok the whistling got me man.....just....well done!
Dex - Really liking the piano and drums combo, this was sick. I only detect 2 sounds though, even if the piano takes up a lot of space. It could have been a solo piano composition, or you could have added a bassline or a guitar solo on top. Still enjoy it though, good job!
NickC - It might be the compression, but for me it feels vaguely hollow. Nothing else is bad though, i'm in love with the synths used, especially the pad. Good job!
Ethansight - Only 2 minutes? Bruh....this kind of genre calls for a 4-5 minute epic. I know you only have an hour though, so i can't call attention. This was extremely head bopping fun. You have such a way with sound design, this was really fun. Well done!
LunacyEcho - Mighty fine composition you got there cowboy. Y'all excel in this kind of music partners. Well done!
johnfn - Oof, this needs a studio take. It sounds like band practice, which isn't a bad thing, but for a track this nice, it needs expanding. Also why is there edits? It cuts really badly, which prevents it from being an awesome track. If you patch this up, you might end up on my top 3. Good job though!
Miyolophone - Come down to the Station House mall, where they have all of your shopping needs! How about Melinda's Clothing Room, for some sweet dresses, or Kev's Parlour for a nice range of delicacies....ok i'm being stupid. Well done!

obScene: there's a certain despair here, with a very Silent Hill sound (with an obScene style), that I feel represents very well the theme.
JH Sounds: great melodies and composition. Impressive whistling, too!
