[IDM / Glitchy] SB-Six - Bizar

My latest experiment, a glitchy IDM track.
It's 90% created on a eurorack modular, with the help of novation peak for the polyphonic sounds. In this piece I'm trying to find a nice balance between soothing and rough sounds, in a non-traditional way. It might be a little strange to some, but I guess the IDM crowd can handle it

Re: [IDM / Glitchy]

Extremely dramatic, powerful sounds. Sounds really crisp to me. One of the bass voices is a little too muddied for my ears. Feels like it could have more depth. The pitch is on point, just its like a soft wall of bass.

At about 3 minutes in I find myself losing interest. Around 3:20 it starts to get crazy again and my ears perked back up, but I was definitely getting bored and wanted to press next. The bored feeling definitely goes away later, so maybe its the beginning that's a little too repetitive.

I think the polyrhythms you have going in the synth voices is greatly intricate. You're really dialed into something here.

And yes, this is a far out track. Probably not too accessible to the mainstream beyond a soundtrack score...but to my ears it is amazing! Great work. Great composition. I would be curious to see your writing process.

Re: [IDM / Glitchy]

Cool thanks for the review. I'll have a look at the bass... I'll have to wait a little and listen later again with fresh ears for I have worked too long on this and can't hear the repetition anymore But do you think the first 2 minutes part should be shorter, or the middle part, as that is where you lost interest?

Re: [IDM / Glitchy]

I would say that the beginning carries on for too long, but afterwards the variety is often enough to keep it the same.

Re: [IDM / Glitchy] SB-Six - Bizar

Ok made some updates on this, removed some blocks from the first part and some other tweaks. Feels (nearly) finished now. Thanks for the input

Re: [IDM / Glitchy] SB-Six - Bizar

this is cool, would be a decent closing track for an album. It has this old-school IDM vibe (I don't even listen to IDM but that's all my knowledge of the genre). Last minute is unnecessary because it's not very audible compared to the rest, unless you bounced it by accident. Production is good, loud and clear (listening on headphones because that's all I have).

Cheers man, thanks for this! You are completely right, the tail is way too long, i'll cut that off and call it a wrap (or whatever that is called in English )

Re: [IDM / Glitchy] SB-Six - Bizar

I am not a listener of new idm stuff but this one is really good as it sounds more traditional and analog; especially synths are old school - very trancey. I would recommend further work on music and just throw away this list from aliens .

Re: [IDM / Glitchy] SB-Six - Bizar

just a funny thing:
i was hit play and start reading the comments, while the track plays... so, while reading i thought "this is a cool intro, really like that... the drop-like part will be awesome" ... i was reading more... than... scrolling down "man, this is a long intro... when does the main part starts?" ... "oh, oh, oh, ok... the track is almost over... okay"

Anyway i like it, very well done, even while i expected some killer breakbeat drop afterwards...

Haha you've read the description, ace response There's a lot of analog going on indeed. 90% is eurorack stuff, with novation peak for the poly sounds

Re: [IDM / Glitchy] SB-Six - Bizar

SteebO!

Solid tune! This is defiantly on for the select! haha..


The first few minutes of the tune could be a little shorter.

Also for me the pad builds in the first build could be dialed back a bit, possibly a little gain staging to get them a bit softer in the mix.

The transition that comes in at 2:57 is what my what i'd love to hear come in way sooner! Thus maybe giving those pads a chance to be faded or something.

As already mentioned yeah the composition on this one is super fun. It makes me think of what if Herbie Handcock met apex twin, and then came along a few aliens who abducted them both and said, vibe out together here, and create!

Stellar tune, thanks for sharing!

Re: [IDM / Glitchy] SB-Six - Bizar

Cheers tvmcc I cannot find ways to make it shorter without destroying the track, maybe I should have a listen after a few weeks, then usually I understand comments alot better I'll have a listen to the mix of the pads, thanks.

Thanks Matech! Yes there are some really cool things on your cloud too, well done!
