Not sure how to classify it, other than 'electronica' ... I'd use 'progressive' as a descriptor, but that sounds a bit haughty and pretentious. :uhuhuh:

Crush

Hopefully none of the transitions sound too jarring to the ears.

Feedback appreciated.

Cool track, unusual melodic construction (great leads), nice sounds, this is a very well produced track. I enjoyed it, good breaks and excellent variations

Cheers

Thanks for the feedback Laguna... I'm glad you enjoyed. I had been struggling a long time with trying to get the variations within the track to gel properly (and also, to a large extent, make those drums sound like 80's-over-the-top-ish).

I appreciate the feedback.

Cheers-back-at-ya.

Seconded!

Transitions seem smooth and natural to me.I especially like your careful use of percussion - there when it compliments - not when it might get in the way.

... I think I'll just listen to it again :)
It wasn't me! (well, actually, it probably was)

Thanks folderol. Your comments are appreciated.

There's still a few rough spots I'd like to take care of (especially the upfrontedness of the piano bits)... they almost seem a bit 'too-in-yer-face'.

Any other critiques/suggestions are welcomed. :)

I don't find the piano bits at all mis-matched :? I wonder if you've been listening to it too much, too critically - I do it myself!

NE way I'm listening to it again so thought it worth a little bump :

nice sculpture,
every transition was spot on, especially the bending one
liked the guitarish synth lead to
great day and a great track

Thanks for the comments wavephonic. Glad to hear your assessment of the transition spots (as I tend to fret over such things... and lose sleep... and stop eating...)

The guitar-lead is from Algo's M42 (gotta love the warp!) I find myself using that lead more and more each day.

@folderol: you're right... I do tend to get a little too analytical/critical of my own work... however, I did soften out the piano track just a little (and I mean little)... just couldn't stop ruminating over it's original state.

Anyway... I won't touch this one anymore (too sick of listening to it now). Time to move on to something new.

Cheers.

advaya, this is quite lush and beautiful. Not sure where you thought any jarring bits were. This is really done well; that bendy transition was pretty cool! Enjoyed it!
