Re: [Electronic] Mylamine- Left Behind

Sounds is quite nice. I did felt 2:50 there were to much stuff there. For me this is okay. Mix is quite nice, start of a journey was nice, but I felt like it didn't take me anywhere, I was stationed there where I started if you understand what I mean.
Overall nice

Interesting. Thanks for the listen. To each his own I guess, I personally loved the journey the track took me on, to the point of getting tingly sensations towards the end with everything coming together and the piano and such. Which I do not get all the time from music.

Re: [Electronic] Mylamine- Left Behind

Mix sounds good although the bass is really quiet. I am listening through Iphone ear buds but they're usually bass heavy and I can't really hear much bass even with them. Maybe trying fattening your bass up?

It could use more of a build up before the 2:00 mark where you have everything going. It kinda just all happens and doesn't really create much tension or anticipation before. Also sounds like you have an errant note that is out of key some where in that part.

Overall I'd say it's a good start. My main suggestions would be to crank up that low end. You can try to give it more of a build up if you'd like but thats up to you. A little more variety in the percussion would also be nice. Your mix outside of the lowend is solid though and the overall song is a pleasant listen. Keep it up.

Thanks for listening. Mixing is always an issue, I do not have great equipment for a mixing. The main headphones I'm using are some cheap sony's that have overpowering bass, so I tend to be all off when it comes to low end. Usually my mids are pretty high to overcompensate. I switched from my good headphones to the shit ones, and honestly I'm getting better results with the shit ones.. weird right.

As far as build ups go. I'm just not real big into big anticipation drops, or EDM build ups, or anything like that, never was. So as far as the crazy amount of time I'll spend on a track, it won't be on that it will be on other things.

Percussion was a bitch in this one. Actually had to trash an entire percussion that I spent days on, just wasn't feeling it. then I spent time with a more basic scheme, but filled in a lot of holes with field recording and things around my house. Natural drum set. Not perfect, but I dig it enough. If I had spent more time on it I probably would've blown my head off at that point.

Errant notes are ok! I'm all about the imperfection, honestly. There's enough people that spend so much time making their music clear and perfect. I want my shit kinda grungy and garage. But still pleasant.

Probably been making music for around 9 years, so.. Yea... "good start" is funny to me, Hehe.

Not trying to be the best or anything, but definitely think I have something to give to a few ears.

Re: [Electronic] Mylamine- Left Behind

I like the minimalist repetitiveness. It gives a nice texture. Also there are some good variations. The synth that comes in at 1:35 seems a bit out of the story though. I also like the upper octave sounds the give it a sense of height. Maybe the bass is a bit monotonous. I would give it a bit of variation. Very interesting track. Good job.

Thanks! I usually don't get too fancy with bass, maybe i'll look into that in the future.

Re: [Electronic] Mylamine- Left Behind

Hey man the mix sounds good overall
I think it could be a good idea for you to use some kind of drums with nice highs frequnecy and not to much lows in it and you can use them from time to time like every 8 or 16 bars to create some kind of breaks with an intersting rhythm

Cool, I actually discovered that track when it first came out a couple of weeks ago. Really cool stuff, I dig the Bonobo vibes!

Actually I think there's a really great 'minimalist drop' at 2:06. You're right that there's no anticipation, but it works really well. Suits the style of the music.

I appreciate that. I'm not trying to completely shun the idea of drops and build ups and everything. Just not what i focus my attention on. Way more important stuff in song creation IMO.

Bonobo is the man. Yes I remember seeing your name I think on bandcamp! Thanks.

Re: [Electronic] Mylamine- Left Behind

Well, the track gives me the feeling that it doesn't really aim for anything but just playing lots of notes per time unit in a good mood
Would be interesting to try this as an album concept.. Maybe it even works surprisingly idiosyncratic, however I fear the aimlessness and redundancy (i.e. the effort of playing tons of notes for a mood which could be expressed with much, much less notes) makes the listener tired soon.

Music is art. I make music for what I am feeling at the time, and what I want to create.

I find your comments to be rather pretentious. What do you want from music other than something to give you certain moods? Or exude certain moods?

I've listened to Artists like Bibio for years, where his album is just guitar loops with effects and tape processing. EG: Hand Cranked, Fi, Vignetting the Compost. But there's emotion, MOOD, and soul to it. Do you think he is useless as well?

Show me a Bibio tune which I might call aimless (this may be the case), and we can analyze it. I just called a couple of Bibio tunes on youtube to my mind, didn't find one that I'd call aimless. But indeed I remember Bibio tunes which I find shallow, and I can explain why.

"Music is art" I consider a pretentious attitude. There is art and there is crafts, which is not the same.
You can say about a certain track: X percentage of people consider this art, Y percentage consider it being more crafts, and Z percentage deny it an artistic as well as a crafts background.
There is no superior instance awarding per-se "art" verdicts for any sequence of notes.

I also consider it musically pretentious if the amount of melody notes per second is not backed up by an according increase of musical substance. Just a matter of aesthetics, of course.

Well I'm about 10 years into this. I do not see the beneficial substance in putting down someone's music whether on a forum or anywhere. The majority of your comments are innately negative -- with no room for even possible constructive criticism. Even if you gave the latter, I would not really care. I'm posting here to let people hear my music, maybe give some opinions. I will listen but in the end I will keep creating how I want to.

As far as your last comment about it being musically pretentious for the lack of increase of musical substance. I guess everyone that has liked the track including me is not as musically superior as you are? Will quote a buddy that read your comments (someone who also has made music) "sounds like the type of guy complaining about the hot weather".

Hell if I get quite a few people loving it (including myself) and one person like you, I think i've done a good job.

Well, I'm more than 20 years into this (you really need numbers for evidence of critical faculty? and I was asked to write reviews for big magazines). I told you that in my opinion this track style may "even work surprisingly idiosyncratic" as an album concept. If you are unable to see goodwill in my feedback, I can't help.

So what you are saying is this: "If someone points at an aspect that he sees as downside, then he sees himself as superior to others who don't see this aspect as downside."

Sounds as you are not really interested in feedback that may let you reconsider something. Then please don't ask for feedback by posting music in a feedback forum.
