Scan The Skies [Downtempo IDM]

After a while after deleting everything I had been working on and stayed away for a bit somewhat, I made this. Couple more things started again. Downtempo and dark. Droning and emotional I hope.

Re: Scan The Skies [Downtempo IDM]

Nice track, dude..really liked it much.

Just one thing, though..to my ears there seems to be a bit of sibilance there.. a harsh "tinniness" in the treble in general. Like i said, it might just be my ears..or you might have planned it as part of the over-all sound..but if it's not supposed to be there, then you might want to go back and take a look at it.

Other than that, a great track that was a joy to listen to.

Thanks for sharing, man.

Thanks for listening. If you mean the distorted noise that mixes in with the first synth, it was part of it in FM8. I can see how might not sound right. I feel I left the whole middle a bit empty. Or just too long. Got lost in it some with headphones.

Well, if it's meant to be there, then it's meant to be there, ain't it!

As for the middle part..didn't get that vibe from it at all..worked well for me..just that apparent sibilance thing for me was all that struck me when I listened to it.

Like I said, I thought it was a great track that was a joy to listen to.

Re: Scan The Skies [Downtempo IDM]

A nice overall track with a real brooding mood. However, I felt the section from 2.16 to 2.50 lacked something (don't ask me what though...). The build up from 3.20 is excellent.

Re: Scan The Skies [Downtempo IDM]

very cool track. love the mood. those buzzy wubs you got going on, i think they should be deeper. you dont have much going on in the low end and i think it would fit nicely. cause as of right now they get covered up by those drums. thats actually the only real problem with this, you have a lot of sounds competing for the same range. just work a bit on the eq.

Re: Scan The Skies [Downtempo IDM]

The drone-approach and the decision to stay in one part seemed a bit monotonic but gave a visual sense to the track. Like the new BOC, very hopeless visual documentary-like mood. In the piano-like chord progression in early midpart I would like to hear a 3rd chord as a release or bridge, I guess it is possible to have a drone-approach with some more compositional ideas. I liked the sound, the sibilance/hiss is ok. So soundwise I think this is good, but would like to hear some more compositional ideas

This is sick man!! Loving the dark and distorted textures and the drums are crisp and sharp.

Great use of your lead synths and layering a vocal pad ontop. Everything fits together really well!

Re: Scan The Skies [Downtempo IDM]

Thanks guys. I want to work on it some more. Cut the time a bit and add something in the middle. Work on anything clashing. Make some of the transitions work better.
