[Downtempo] MoonRacer - Baumgartner

My cousin and I set out to write a track for the Baumgartner space jump. After over a months work, it was finally ready.

I am not looking for improvements as such, but I would like to know what you liked of the elements, so that I can use the information in the further songs.

I reccomend you watch it synced with the video, and not just listen to the SoundCloud link.

Excellent work there. I started watching the video and in the end completely forgot that it wasn't an official soundtrack to the video as I was totally absorbed by the moment. Worked really well. I like the gradual build in intensity towards the end.

I second that. feels like the video was made for the music and not vice versa.

i liked pretty much every musical idea in the part leading up to the jump. especially the minimalistic arrangment of strings, piano and synthesized pads i really dig. after he jumps however things get a little bit bumpy imo. i would have expected a much more spectacular finale. the d&b loop and the arpeggio/bassline don't do the build up justice as they have a much more ambient feel to them. it just doesn't feel as heroic and majestic from there on.

still this is high level moaning with such an excellent track.

I wasn't able to watch the youtube video because youtube doesnt work for me all the time, sadly.

But the music... I feel it's very emotional... almost sad in a way but with hope kind of... definitely could picture this being used for what you described, but also, some lonely mountains overlooking a lake... possibly a time lapse film or something... I really liked it man.

And oooohhh man when you bring in those drums... this is top... it really is.

Re: [Downtempo] MoonRacer - Baumgartner

Wow! great job. the music and the video sync perfectly, i was completely caught in the moment .the intro sounded like ' Space:The Final Frontier ' :d All the sounds create a ' space like ' atmosphere.
Of one thing i was a bit disappointed. I expected something ' stronger ' at the moment he jumped. The intro was very good...preparing the listeners for the jump-event but the change of rhythm was not as ' drastic ' as i expected. This is my opinion.
Overall very good job !

Thanks for all the positive feedback!

In the next songs, we will definitely try to make something with more powerful breakdowns.

Beautiful track, matches the occasion perfectly, I'd never seen that video of the jump before. It's been said already but it just works with the video like it was the official music for it

Re: [Downtempo] MoonRacer - Baumgartner

Wow excellent spacing of all the parts, everything is breathing just right nothing feels squashed or hampered in anyway – you should tell people to listen with headphones – much nicer. Only thing I didn’t really like was when the guitar first comes in – just sounds very ‘midified’ even though it may not be. When the arp kicks in though it sits nicely so nowt really to worry about. Well done

Re: [Downtempo] MoonRacer - Baumgartner

Wow, have to agree, this track fits the video so perfectly, well done!
I also agree that the finale could've been more spectacular, more intense, bigger.
You could perhaps try to raise the volume of the bass a little and try giving the drums more reverb and mixing them 'bigger'.

Great song!

Cheers! =)
