[Electronica/IDM] Soarer - Her Face Lingers

Made a new track and it would be great to hear what you think.

This track is quite varied and goes through different pieces. It is all very melodious.

All my beats are processed found sounds/field recordings so let me know it they are too rough.
This is of course Electronica/IDM so the sounds are meant to be a bit noisy.

Also comments about the mixing sound of this track is most welcome.
Let me know what you think.

This is freaking awesome! You've got great use of panning and layering here to keep things interesting. I'd love to see how you handled the percussive bits in the mix since they sit so well with everything else. Overall, good work!

Re: [Electronica/IDM] Soarer - Her Face Lingers

Thanks man! Really glad you like it.
Anyone else care to comment on my track?

I have made the kick in the beginning a bit less hard but haven’t updated yet.

About the percussive bits..:
I use Live's Drum Racks and play all beats from there. I have an EQ Eight on every drum chain so that I can make each sample fit in the mix. I have a compressor on the drum track and some light, short reverb (mainly early reflection). Then often I use all kinds of delay, pitch, granular, mangling effects to glitch up stuff and see what interesting sounds arise.

I always treat the sample with EQing first and a Limiter in order to raise it's volume a bit.

Fantastic. I do love some melodic IDM, and this parallels work by Ochre and Wisp in that regard. Love the bass, sounds so comfortable in the mix. The drums are excellent and the work you put into them has really paid off, that soft reverb is right in the sweet spot.

Re: [Electronica/IDM] Soarer - Her Face Lingers

hi there. The drums are indeed tight. the bass is really too quiet for my taste, and I have headphones with good bass response. perhaps te answer would be to lower the DB on the leads a bit and then re-level the whole thing, dunno. the lead does sort of loose its way throughthe first half in the sense that is mostly just repeats the existing themes. You could add more interest if you change that voice up more, add some delays, something to evolve it.

Overall a really chill piece, thanks for sharing.

Re: [Electronica/IDM] Soarer - Her Face Lingers

Thanks for the fine feedback guys. I appreciate that you took the time for it.

Lately I have found that I really had to bring the bass down quite a bit since it's always too loud when I listen on my family's stereo and in my friends studio. I use the Adam A7 and since they don't have that much bass I have been compensating. I guess it can be raised slightly but I'll have to check.

I'll see if I can evolve the melody synth a bit too, but no promises! Haha

And thanks for the comment on Soundcloud Creepr

During the first 15 seconds I thought it was going to go all haywire But this is a darn good track in my opinion. Especially with the sinusy melody in the first half and that you change it in the second half. Loads of sounds going on, but it all works.

Re: [Electronica/IDM] Soarer - Her Face Lingers

Thanks Goski!

With haywire did you mean that you found the beginning a bit rough or messy? I've had a hard time making the beat sounds in the beginning blend well in the mix without damping their clarity.
But I'd be glad to hear what you meant.

Re: [Electronica/IDM] Soarer - Her Face Lingers

My thought was that it was going to be a very basic melody just using waves and then a harsh drumline but you turned it around. No, I think the beginning is good. an't help but to feel Aphexy about your tune
