this is an interesting one, what’s there is expertly executed but it does take a while to get going (3+ min?) and there are several places where I’m just totally taken out of the mood/groove. It almost sounds like a 7min spontaneous performance with a coupla synths rather a track that has a noticable stucture - or I just missed the point completely lol.

thanks for the crit yes a song i got completely lost in.. as far as structure is concerned i have a bit of an obsession of late with not imposing a structure. i think it has to do with the fact that i don’t dance, and consequently i need to keep myself entertained (and sometimes i end up going all over the place, losing my listeners).

Excellent..! Your construction, your progression are very well done and with a minimum of effect. The lenght is not really a problem, in fact i don’t feel it like a dance music, but more like an hypnotical atmosphere. You gain my attention from the start to the end, and it’s very pleasant..That makes me think sometimes to the work of “Underworld”.

I think you have had a lot of fun creating almost an albums worth of CG mixes here.

Whilst i like the minimal sound of some of the pieces and appreciate you want to use the dry vocal they all feel like you pasted the vocal in and just let it run.

I think this mix is the most succesful in that style but perhaps just some more designed music work to connect the melodies might not go amiss.

There are no surprises in the arrangements and often the less you do in a minimal mix the more focussed it should be.

Perhaps some use of the stereo space may be all you need.

thanks for your comments loveshadow. yes when the vocals are as dry as i used them they sound kind of disconnected from everything else. which is something i found interesting.

but yeah i hear what you’re saying.

the stereo space.. are you talking about the vocals or the backing? or both? i’ve heard a spaciousness in your music that’s really nice. i mean there’s a lot of space for the different sounds which i suspect allows you to make them more dynamic which in turn gives the music life.. is that all to do with post-production mastering? or do you create that space as you compose?

in any case thanks for the advice
