One Hour Compo - Round 710 (OHC710)
@Isolinear - It's a radioactive mix, be careful lol.
@Suzums - Continuing the tradition of the original ;)
@Souperion - My dreamscape is a little more complicated than that haha...
@Misael.K - It is important for people to note this is a remix, as stated in my description. It doesn't change anything in regards to the track, but it does give you an understanding as to any familiarities you might feel with this piece.
@Arcana - Oh absolutely. If anyone wants to remix some old entries, i'd be glad to hear it. I might do more remixes with some of my old entries.
@Isolinear - Lol i'd probably have run out of ideas by then. In terms of a track to remix, this is one of my harder ones, because it's one that doesn't need much changing, it's fine as it is.
@Suzums - In hindsight, it's sounds more like a variation/rework than a complete remix. It's still in the same key and style...
@JH Sounds - You can never have enough versions i always say. It's nice to remix your old entries. I would love to do a entry, that is completely new, but is using the melody/harmony ideas of the previous entry, to the point where you wouldn't have guessed it's the old one, because it sounds so new.
@Isolinear - I'm glad you dig my DnB breaks.
@Coloradoweeks - The fakeout was completely unplanned haha
@Suzums - That's something you don't get in the original, IDM stuff ;)
@CotMM - And of course because i added in the IDM parts, a reference to Aphex Twin appears haha
@Isolinear - That's not even his most creepiest video XD.
@JH Sounds - I Care Because You Do....
@Souperion - My music is a reflection of bipolar haha. One minute it's fast and manic, next minute it's chill and relaxing. Sometimes it's both. So it's a combination of a comfy mattress on a tall rollercoaster XD.
@Dex - I didn't know i did this either, but apparently now you know lol.
@Isolinear - 5:40 was the original time. 6:00 is the new time. So your looking at 20 seconds of extra material lol.
@Suzums - Another extra feature not present in the original.
@Misael.K - At this point, i'd say about every single week haha. We don't need the almost now XD.
@CotMM - Lol i wish that was true, but i simply fade it out by the 5:40 mark, or let the sound release by the 5:50 mark. It's rare for me to manually fade after exporting.
@Arcana - Glad you liked it. It's personally one of my more stronger compositions, so it was good to get some juices flowing to make this remix. I might do it again, but with other remixes.
@Everyone - Thanks for the kind words!
TheVideoGamer - This track is essentially a remix of the one i did in round 658, because it's the exact same images as that round, literally the exact same. So i ended up remixing this track, or at least doing a different version to the original, both because it was obviously the right thing to do at the time, and also because it meant i could try ideas i didn't get to do in the original because of time. Personally listening back, it seems more of a different arrangement, than a full on remix, mainly because i kept it in the same key, and used mostly the same instruments for some, despite it's differences. I did spent a fair bit of time on this, if you are wondering, i didn't just change one note and called it a day. I did put work into this, and it does sound like they're differences in this, compared to before. All in all, glad you liked it!
christopian - First entry, kind of unexpected. Guess you had to leave early eh? Loving the unusual chords of the choir, it's very dark and sombre, but has a very mystical edge to it. Some of the resolutions were a little off to me, personally, and it needs more polishing and mixing, but i did like what i was hearing a lot, so good job!
Lyra_183 - I have to count how many are new tracks, and how many are remixes/rework's like mine lol. Great singing, i think this might be an original song. I can never tell which is a cover or which is original haha. Really nice, good job!
cotmm68030 - Sweet flanging textures, seems more darker than the one you did for 658. Yes there will be comparisons to that round, because it's the same images. Loving the way the pads fade in, it's very moody, but with a hint of lo-fi and warmth, but not uplifting warmth, almost like a muffled warmth. Really digging the effects here, it really makes it one hell of a soundscape. Nothing else to say, it's lovely. Well done!
Koekepan - Really deep kicks, feels like it has that sci-fi aesthetic but in a more darker setting. Really digging the way the pads are manipulated. It builds up into this very dense texture, it's great. In a way, there are moments where i feel the kick isn't doing enough as it should, maybe add some distortion in those areas. I also feel some of the pad textures, really overtake most of the main bass parts, muffling a little of the mix. I don't know, it's not so much a negative, but rather more can be done. The sudden cuts were also not my thing at all, regardless of whether it was intentional or not. I really dig the idea though, has a lot of potential, good job!
DarkShadow - I was not expecting 2 minutes to be honestl, you've evolved haha. Cool sine manipulations, reminds me of a siren. The drums are on that IDM threshold, very cool. Kick is not my thing at all, very irrating click sound in my opinion. Basslines are strong in this one, maybe a bit too strong. Although not for me, i had a lot of fun with this, great ideas, good job!
Souperion - This is a cool contrast to your round 658 entry, which was more or less pure orchestra minus the guitars and drums and occasional synth. In this one, it's pure ambient in the realm of something like CotMM. The sounds are super cool, completely does not sound Souperion at all. The orchestra part was unneeded personally, largely because the ambient parts were beautiful, and did the job perfectly. The ambient parts could work as a 10 minute journey, kind of in the vein of CotMM and Koekepan. The sudden orchestral part was filler in my opinion. Besides that everything else was lovely, and after thinking, i'm gonna give you this one. This actually got better and better with repeat listens, the ambient sounds were amazing. I was also more warming to the orchestra part, as i listened to it again and again. I ended up picking you as 2nd. Awesome work!
Ethansight - Metal? That's different. Then again there's a lot i've yet to learn from you guys, even from my 2 years on here. As far as metal goes, this is more of the synthetic kind, it doesn't feel natural in my opinion, however the idea was seriously fire, it has so much potential. Expand it, make it longer and do more with the chopping, because the way the growls are manipulated were fire. Honestly it just needs expanding, the idea is great. Good job!
DDRKirby(ISQ) - Well your description so far delivers. There is definately some spooky chord progressions in this, and some very tight percussion. The synth strings really add something to this, makes it a bit more epic, whilst still being scary. The beats were really tight, sick DnB. Loving the synth chords, adds a lot of retro 80's flare to the sound. Great production, ton of fun to listen to, well done!
Barley - Cool guitar riffs, some unique note choices here. Really liking the effects on the riffs too. Drums are unfortunately buried, which seems to be a staple of your tracks. The riffs is my favourite part about the track, it's very cool. The vocals are nicely clean in this, really the whole track just needs polish, it has potential. Good job!
Dex - RAWWKKK. The guitars in this one are huge. I often notice that loudness difference, between someone as quiet as say...Suzumebachi or Misael.K vs yours. This is not a critique, i like my metal loud, it's just usually a sudden contrast based on the loud amps and drums. In this case, i'm a big fan of the darker melodies in this, really fits the theme. Really it's just a ton of fun, and lovely melodic ideas. Well done!
A2Z - Nice 3/4 action. Sounds like a waltz, really loving the synths, really majestic, fantasy like. It's weirdly beautiful, especially the chord changes. Just wish it didn't end so short! Totally could see this expanded upon! The melody ideas are amazing, i wish this was on the top 3 :( Awesome work!
Suzumebachi - Nice wind effects going on here, feels like it's meant for a rainy day. Great percussion, super dirty synth action going on. Extremely groovy kicks and snares. Sounds like a mix of Synthwave and techno. Loving the filtering going on, really fits that sci-fi feel. Loving the quotations to your 658 entry, that was clever. Well done!
Wassup Thunder - Inspired by doom eh? Really digging the choir and guitar work in this. The choir really brings out the "blood" aspect of the blood moon. Synths were super cool, really makes it more like electronica, but with a goth rock aesthetic to the sound. The guitars could do with a bit of finessing if i really had to critique, but even then that's more of a sound thing, than a track thing. Honestly, it's all i could find, ideas was super fire and fun to listen to. Well done!
Coloradoweeks - Understandable. I know children are sleepy, but hate the idea of going to bed. It's weird, but yet what can you do. I dig this Colarado though. It reminds me of equal parts Souperion, equal parts CotMM, equal parts InvisibleObserver and maybe equal parts Suzumebachi. Then again there is also similarities to Doom, which Wassup was inspired by for this. It sounds pretty awesome actually. It's very dark and aggressive, but yet has a very almost sad melody to it. The synth and drums were groovy as hell. Awesome work!
obScene - Emotional piano, very cool arps. It's got a bit of haze to the overall effects. Has that signature blend of Dark Cinematic and industrial scapes that i always love. String work is amazing in this, love the attack and sustain. This is such a beautiful and emotional composition, that perfectly captures the theme. Really loving how it builds, it's just sooo good, i especially love the chords in this. This was just incredible stuff, fits the theme extremely well! Incredible work!
Arcana - Sweet textures, this feels like some sci-fi movie epic, but with techno mixed in. Intro was great, really sets the mood for the rest of the piece. It would be interesting to make this more experimental, expand the intro a bit more. I mean i love the whole thing, but the intro was really fitting, and suited to the theme. Rest was great though, you sing very well, and the mix is very balanced. Ends abruptly, sounds a little unfinished, and personally, the vocals could do with a bit more shaping mix wise. However this was a lovely idea, and a ton of fun. Good job!
JH Sounds - CCR eh? Not heard of this one personally, but interesting chords, very uplifting piece. I don't know if you've done this one before, but it sounds familiar. I don't know the original, but it does sound familiar who knows. Great singing and beat, really like this one a lot, well done!
InvisibleObserver - Super watery synths, really feels like were in some kind of liquid metal. Super tight sound design, your like the king of sound design. Drums are mixed perfectly in this, not too loud or quiet. Yeah the waveform is more on the quieter side, but after repeat listens, i didn't think it stood out in a bad way. Really digging the light growls, not in your face, but really adds a layer of rhythmical syncopation. Honestly this is probably one of my favourite mixes from you, it was balanced just perfectly, and the grooves were really tight! Well done!
Misael.K - And we finish with a 5 minute closer from Misael.K. I must know what that synth sound is, it sounds amazing. Super lovely chords, feels like a piano piece, but with a synthesizer. Great chord changes, some really intricate modulations, that i was not expecting. Kick and snare kind of are at odds with each other, i don't know if it's the dance kick and acoustic snare that puts me off. I try and keep and open mind, so this is more of a small issue. That synth is sooo cool, it's one of the things i love about the piece. It really makes the chords extra special. The piano addition really makes it shine. The only thing to complete this, would be a funky bassline, it's missing in this, and i feel it's really needed. Other than that, the synths are incredible, and really why i love this piece. I wanted this to be on the top 3 soo badly, it was amazing, but sadly what put the others on the list over yours, was theme accuracy. It's sadly not what i think about when looking these images, when i listen to yours. BUT IT WAS STILL AMAZING, IT'S HARD CHOOSING ONLY 3 THESE DAYS :( Awesome work!

1 TheVideoGamer - I just want to say in general I'm glad you're around TVG, you bring high energy chaos vibes and its very inspiring getting lost in one of your beats.

2 obScene - Rainy spook night vibes
3 InvisibleObserver - Dark squelchy groove, love the deep subby bass
4 Misael.K - mmm wonderful chill lounge mood, love the soft clean end lead
5 DDR - Smooth progression, love the 9ths, and the DnB is top tier.
6 Suzumebachi - Road trippin red moonin
christopian - Smooth choir movement
cotmm - Large and ominous, evil things afoot
Koekepan - Seems like quite the adventure in there
Souperion - Lots of spooky wobbly sounds
Dex - Enjoyed the laid back solos!
A2Z - This is like a shimmer wash
