There's nothing bad to hear. You me from the piano intro.

Neon-Bard responds:

That's great to hear! Thanks! :)

This is really nice ambiance. The moments of floating with the synth lead and background drums makes a really nice effect. As conorstrejcek already said, varying the drums with some really nice fills would've made a whole world of difference to the effect of the song and the overall greatness. As well, as a personal distaste, I find the pad in the background and some other harmonic parts just seem really muggy and dissonant at times.

Neon-Bard responds:

The message could not be any clearer. I really need to work on my percussion and the mixing of the 'background' instruments. I always tend to go the safe route and lay a rather simple pattern down instead of exploring the possibilities. I'll be sure to broaden my knowledge on this portion of my arrangements, that's for sure!

Thanks for listening! I appreciate the feedback. :)

Wow. Really takes my breath away with the pad right under a moving line.

Neon-Bard responds:

Awesome to hear! Thanks for listening man! :)

Digging it. Really I am. Just appreciate that nice beat!

eatmeatleet responds:


I dig it, dude. I especially like the low woodwind sound you used; very interesting sound.

Aeris responds:

Thank you very much :D

Damn dude. I loved this a lot. A shame it was cut short, I want to hear more. The drop was awesome, and shit the way the percussion came in at about 20 seconds was creative and interesting to hear. A little grating, but damn I couldn't help but bob my head and jam to this dude!

SWeissenP responds:

Thank you! It's finished now if u would like to hear the finished version!

As you already said, there are a couple mixdown issues. I was sitting here loving aspects of the instrumentation but I was totally not planning on giving this more than 3.5 stars because the drop just wasn't coming and I was getting tense as fuck. Then 1:30 comes around and that kick comes in. That's when I decided this music is easy to jam to.
Sorry to hear about your head too, mate.

CidiousClef responds:

I'm glad you liked it. I was actually messing around with the structure a bit to see what I could do with a really long buildup, wasn't entirely sure what I was doing. I end up with half a song of buildup, decide to make the drop totally worth it.

I guess it worked?

In every sense of the phrase: "Holy fucking shit". This is spectacular! That glitchy synth next with a pristine snare next to it makes the best contrast. Professional work right here!

Neon-Bard responds:

Hahaha! That's a great compliment, thanks! :) I'm glad you think there was a nice contrast between the instruments and effects because that was my intent.

Really great. The way you move between phrases is really impressive and so smooth!

stunkel responds:

Thanks! :D

Wow. That was splendid man. The title fits it so well, because all I can picture is a symbolic phoenix arising from all the turmoil about it. Really, the arpeggiating bit at 1:30 was so cool and just mystifying. I also really loved that cello behind the synth just kind of supporting the chords. Only negative to me was just simply that the drums clogged my sub-woofer, but that's probably my fault. So all in all, this is a five star work. This is really the centre of good if there ever was one!

Neon-Bard responds:

Thanks for listening Koxyx, it's great to know that you liked it!

As for the drums, that was not your fault at all (or your sub). It means that I need to pay more attention to the mixing of my music! :)

Hiya, I love writing music and I want to go to college for it hopefully. Let me know what you think of my work and I'll do you the same!
