This is a fast paced piece based on percussion. Against the percussion are long theme notes that might remind the horn of a train coming from a distance.

Comments welcomed..Cheers.

very interesting "different" sounding track. i enjoyed it for the most part,
but i think the volume levels could have been mixed to make the sounds play better together.... just my 2 pesos.

Different is good.
I would however prefer it in another genre.
How about strings and orchestra in there?

Some good elements in this but the deep sound that comes in and out is a bit abrupt. Perhaps try fading it in and out to create a sweeping effect.

Not sure the final part works either.

Try fiddling with the structure some more.

Keep it up!

Thanks for the comments - much appreciated. It's with specific comments that I can vision out of the box so to speak.

@layzer: yes, it could be smoothed out somewhat, in the sense of providing a more enjozable listening experience. It's a bit on the raw side in its current state.

@Saffran: The idea of having some strings in lieu of percussion, for instance, is very interesting. Or strings in general. I'll consider it, thanks !

@-Fature-: I agree that the deep bass sounds coming in and out are a bit abrupt. Following your comment I'm thinking that the really deep bass sounds should be resevred for the choruses. About the final part I'm not sure what you meant.

Cheers !
