Icon7 [ambient IDM] Jazzyspoon - Addressed

It's been a while since I asked the IDMf community to give me feedback on tracks, but I find myself without a set of ears to bounce things off of these days. This is definitely a work in progress. Posting for feedback. This will likely be the 'opening track' on my upcoming release, so I was kind of shooting for something ambient and simplified, but I wanted to get some feedback to see if others found it just plain boring.

The resonance wheeze in the background I'd prefer slightly louder by just a smidge.

Nice piece of background chillout.

Thanks, Roo. I agree about the 'wheez'. Nice feedback - adding to my notes.

Re: [ambient IDM] Jazzyspoon - Addressed

Nice track, J..I agree with Roo about the background wheeze maybe being turned up a little..just a tad.

Also..and this is totally a personal artistic thing, so keep that in mind, but that up-front clap/shaker thing you have going on..it sounds a little dry to my ears and I personally would try lowering it just a little and adding some subtle reverb to it, with the low end cut to make it shine in the mix a bit, if you get what I mean.

Like I said, it's a personal artistic thing and it's not that there's anything wrong with how it is now..just offering an artistic suggestion and putting it out there, dude.

While I'm offering suggestions..another thing I would have tried if this were mine would have been to drop everything about 2/3rds in and let it run for a few seconds with just the beat and that clapping / shaker sound..then bring everything back in again at once..kind of a prelude to the end, if you follow my meaning.

Anyway, just a couple of things that struck me while I listened..like I said, it's a cool track as you have it and one that makes me look forward to the coming release with interest.

Hello fellow maker

I found this track interesting. Unfortunately I cannot say anything very technical about it,
but it had me hooked for sure. I am really waiting to see what's gonna happen next, so I think your goal is kind of reached. As you describe it as introductory track, there is no real drop happening because it should come in the following track : this is exactly what I felt. Now I want more.

Cheers,

CHeers,
Why should a drop come in a following track..if at all? This is a track in its own right and we can only comment on this track..not presuppose what will come in later yet unheard works.

Just saying..

Re: [ambient IDM] Jazzyspoon - Addressed

My buddy who got me into DJing used to call this the “obligatory ambient tracK”. Every good electronic LP needs one!

Jokes aside. I really like tuned percussion/plucks/bells. The foley here is quite nice. If I’m honest it could either be shorter or have a bit more happen (and perhaps quicker). I have also just got done commenting on six other tracks here, so perhaps my brain more impatient than normal. Maybe if you parred down the arrangement by ~45 seconds.

Totaly wild card here, but: some of my favorite b sides from the Doors are quite short. I love a really well done song around 2:30. There is something magic about a tune that concise.

Sorry sir, maybe I misunderstood. I felt this track should have the same role than the Boards of Canada's "ready let's go" on Geoggadi. It is a track that prepares the listener to the rest of the album. An "opening track" as OP says.

And myself by "drop", I was just speaking about the following track. A following track is always a drop right ? Since the previous tracks ends in a nice way and fades out, and the next track begins with something different.
Anyways.

I guess it all depends on the nature and tone of the tracks that follow..and like I said, we have yet to hear those. But an "opening track" can also be totally different from what follows, setting the theme by how much it contrasts with the rest of the album. It really all depends on what the collective body of work is like when you listen to it as a whole. Still, to be fair to what you said, it's certainly a point that's open to interpritation.

I don't know about your point that a following track is always a drop, though..sometimes, sure, I guess..but, it could alternatively be a riser.

Regardless of what we think, one thing we can be sure about is the release is going to be worth the wait..it's Jazzy after all.

Nope, its still there. Soundcloud have changed how embedding works. I used a track of my own to test and prove in principle we have a workaround, then edited Jazzy's here to make sure it works for others too. Happy listening

Old embeds won't work any more until updated to the new format. I've made a sticky post at the top of the forum. A looooot of people on a lot of sites are going to have hassle now because of what they've done.

Re: [ambient IDM] Jazzyspoon - Addressed

Thanks for all of the love and feedback, guys. This is definitely the obligatory ambient rack for the album, though the album itself will be fairly "downtempo" in general. It just won't have this relative level of minimalism/simplicity. Will update this mix in the next few days.
Thanks for fixing the links, Roo. Made changes to my signature, as well. What a PITA soundcloud can be.
