love the vibrato synth. the shifts to the separate melody lines in the song are great; they're different but complement the other sections. funky and tells a story; I can picture a man walking down a city beside many clubs and pubs, but happily passing them ... because today he is the happiest man in the world, he needs nothing to lift his spirits, they are soaring the evening of this beautiful day.
the build-ups are like him remembering the days past events and the happiness building up inside him.
I love the mixing, panning, and the instruments. It sounds very professional!
If only I could walk past a pub without going inside. ;) lol. But yea, you definitely got the feel of the track. :) Though if I were to add lyrics it'd be about a hot chick shakin' her ass on the dancefloor!
"The way you move, the way you groove, the way you step into the room..."
Thanks for the warm review, Philzart. :)
The song hugs my ears!
the stereo separation on some of the instruments gives a bizarre surrounding feeling, like a hug -- but it actually feels like it draws you in! it's really cool.
great mood setting background music!
I love how it builds ever so slightly over time instead of being static. the volume of the instruments is well set, the quiet bass strings ( i believe) give a looming, ominous feel to it. I like how it changes slightly too, it isn't just the same loop of sound over and over and over.
Very good for just an experiment!
what about adding a processed choir or metallic screech in? -- with either a sustained note or maybe a slow gradual theme to add a little extra depth.
This was actually my first real dark ambient experiment. I gradually discarded this idea, and focused on other things instead. At the time, I didn't have a good quality microphone, so I couldn't record myself and process the sounds. If you wait enough, after my collab is done ("Reflections"), another one is coming soon called "Fallen Eclipse" - a pure Dark Ambient one. ^^
