I think you've peaked
does that mean i'll never do better? :(
Through this whole contest I've never been able to learn what your usual style is lol. The use of autotune is interesting. Interesting I mean it's so over the top obvious that it's not distasteful. I wonder how it would've sounded if you used midi input to pitch the notes instead of using a pitcher plugin or something. I only ask because that would maybe change the desired effect.
Cool work though.
I'm not totally sure that I have set style that I work in or what it'd be defined as. The first three songs of the competition are in a style that I used to write in primarily, but moved away from in the last year or two. I think that what I really would've liked on this track would be vocoded vocals, but I haven't had a chance to figure out how to get that working! I guess that's sort of similar to what you describe with using midi input to pitch the vocals?
Thanks for listening, Spadezer! :)
Just popped in. Man this is sweet. It's so full and diverse I can't really tell who's influencing the style the most. Good luck.
ty spadezer :D
I enjoyed watching this progress
;) I can always build on your feedback :)
It's catchy and it's got the right synths, but what's missing is the atmosphere. It doesn't have that full and delicate feel.
Doesn't sound bad though. I figured I'd leave a review for you since thi's was empty lol.
I can agree with that, thanks!
Probably the song in this round with the fewest number of instruments, and it still sounds full. Nice!
Thank you Spadez! I think it was a bit of a risk this round, as tracks with few instruments tend to not to do so well in the NGADM. I knew that perhaps it could leave judges feeling a little left wanting. With this track, I felt that if I was going to muddy the piano arrangement with anything, I'd have to take it to full orchestra.
That being said, I wasn't really worrying about what I can add to try and impress anybody, or thinking about what could get me extra points. I just wanted to create something beautiful and I put just as much effort into this as I did with my tracks that have more going on. :)
It's so happy. But this is definitely the Johnfn feel and it's actually the opposite of sad. lol
thanks spadezer!! hey but uh who said this song was sad =P
This is fantastic!
I don't agree with Johnfn actually. The beginning is completely necessary especially considering the lyrics. I love your voice.
I do think I see what other people are saying with it missing something. I think it's not big enough when it comes to the chorus. Like there needs to be more desperation and near shouting levels and pitches. But that's just my opinion.
Great work and good luck
That I'm getting comments agreeing on certain aspects is super useful; definitely lets me know I missed something. If I make it through, next round's track won't make the same mistakes...
01:54 made me laugh
You should be proud that you've made it this far. You're in the top 32 of 250 or so people who auditioned.
Anyway, this is good work. The composition and the overall mixing is pretty good. A couple things I'm noticing. The percussion I feel like don't have enough punch particularly in the snare and kick. It sounds like you recorded it live which is awesome if you did. If not I'd actually be really impressed with how realistic it sounds. But to mix it better the low frequencies need to come through with those instruments.
That's all I'll say for now. This is pretty sweet. Again, be proud.
And good luck
