Hey all, got a new track up that I think is worth a listen. Abstract but accessible was what I was shooting for. All comments appreciated! Thanks.

uploaded mp3 for all the non-soundclickers. I spent quite a bit of time on this and would love to hear what you all have to say about it. Happy new year everyone!

well recorded..nice mix..good pallete of tones..reminds of Kit Clayton

but does it have a strong enough theme, or does it seem to be just a series of sounds following one after another , that at one point just merely stop at the end of the song and not really finish itself ?

i can also hear a certain something in the work..perhaps 'overworked' ? micro managed..

i know this is IDM and that is part of the aesthetic, but there can be a fine line between this and just plain over-thinking the process and not letting it flow

this is really nice... If you turned down the percussion a bit, it would bring out those nice subtle melodies more. Really good track, though! I'd like to hear more songs from you.

Lovely track this, very well produced, can't really give you any critique.

Thanks for sharing!

whoa, many thanks to all for the kind words! I agree paul e. that the track may have a bit too much going on but thats how I wanted this to flow, lots of sonics firing off all over the place with some abrupt dynamic shifts, I personally dont think its to the detriment of the track though. to vanvranken, i actually debated quite a bit on how high the percussion should be mixed in, as it is now i think it does come off a bit harsh to the ears but I thought it worked well with the rather chilled melodies. I was really torn about how "nice n easy" I wanted to make this to listen to, still not sure if I got it right. haha, whatever though im rambling, thanks for the feedback and criticism folks, good to know you all are diggin the track. Very Happy
