This is one of your best songs imo :D
It's so catchy and joyous!
I forgot to use this :O
I wonder if I could make a cool, unique sound by adding some distortion.
The melodies are lovely :D I love how different leads play different parts of it. The sound design is indeed great. With that said, I'm not so fond of how you've been compressing your songs lately; it's mostly subjective, because I can acknowledge that the compression is well executed. I just find it to be too noticeable and distracting, and I feel like it detracts from the liveliness from the music. The leads don't get a chance to shine; they sound glued to the rest of the track.
This is impressive for your first attempt at a dance track but not that unexpected :)
I read some of the comments about the mix in #production. I don't think having little bass is necessarily a bad thing; I believe the reason why it doesn't work so well in this case is because of the weight issues I mentioned earlier. There's this one element that serves the role of the bass to some extent, but because it's not quite there frequency-wise, and it's not used constantly during the chorus, it creates a sense of ambiguity as to how light the mix was intended to be.
Thank you BO! Frankly I don't go into most pieces with an intention to make a light/heavy mix per se, so that may be part of the issue with ambiguity. It's something I'll work on in the future if I every try this kind of thing again.
I love the sound design!
I love the main melody; it's quite catchy and powerful! The dynamics are fantastic. As I said on chips compo, this is by far your most memorable track (of the ones I listened to). I think it's too early to make predictions about which track will win, but I expect this to get top 5 at least.
I didn't even notice that you took inspiration from Miyo, but I can see it now. Miyo is also the prime inspiration for one of my tracks in this compo, haha.
Eyyy BO thanks for dropping by <3
I don't know exactly what series of decision I made to allow this melody to sell more than all the other ones I wrote, but I'm sure with more experience I'll know it intuitively
This is quite a complex song. There are so many things I can pay attention to at any particular moment. I kinda feel like there’s somewhat too much stimuli at times. It makes the track interesting, but I think it detracts from the catchiness. I feel like some of the transitions just barely work thanks to a lack of dynamic contrast. I like all the drum beats; there’s a lot of nice variation there. I found this to interesting and overall pleasant, but it just doesn’t fit my taste as much as your music usually does. Bear in mind that I’ve never been very fond of this genre, so I may have a very different opinion from the judges. This ngadm has been fantastic, and I’m glad that one of my very favorite NG musicians made it to the finals :)
wow, I'm blown away by how much you improved the track. This is one of the most pleasant pieces of music I listened to in a while. You're incredibly talented. I think this would have won the compo by a landslide if you submitted this version.
Thank you BO! Yeah, I had only worked on it for 2 days before I submitted it to chips, and also all the feedback I got during it helped a LOT. I'm happy that it ultimately got the attention it deserves.
The atmosphere is lovely!
