Today I made a new track only with Choir voices.
It is called "Ambient voices".

My Feedback

Music - 6.5
Instruments - 7.5
Performance - 7
Mix - 8

Overall - 7.25

Comments: Musically it's just too stagnant. The same 7 notes over and over before the counter melodies come in at around 1:30 is just monotonous, especially for almost 4 minutes. The track just doesn't go anywhere. Now if this was just something to try out voices to see how they sound, okay, I guess. They don't sound like traditional choir voices though. I don't know what you'd call them but choir, no. Mix was okay. But honestly, I was too distracted by the lack of movement in the piece to really pay attention to anything else. As for the vocal library, I guess it could have its place if used properly. This, however, was probably not the best use.

Hi wagtunes.
thanks for listening and your feedback.
The voices are not intended to be natural voices. It comes from a library with artificial ambient voices.
The voices are similiar to the voices of "I am not in love" from 10cc. Many voices over layered but not a real choir.
So far as I know it is one person who sings it.
I made now a complete new version with many new elements. I hope it is better now.
Your feedback is welcome! :-)

from 1:51-3:09 its virtually the same thing over and over again.
3:10 the plucked instrument comes in (nylon guitar?) and that sounds good, you lowered the volume of thevoice pad which made way for a new colour.
The first 50 seconds you could see on some kind of melancholy filmtrack.
This piece has lots of potential if you were able to put in more energy changes and make it "go somewhere". When a person tells a story, they don't repeat the first paragraph over and over, they take you on a journey, with high points and low points; quiet moments and louder ones.
This could be a good 4 minute story if you knew where you wanted to take us. : )

Hi Bansaw,
thanks for your feedback. :-)
I made now a new version. I shortened the Intro and I made the end a little bit longer and some other things.
By the way: I intended to make a kind of canon. For that reason I repeated the parts.
A real canon has only one part that is repeated. My special canon has 5 different parts. :-)

I think a more developed chord chain is needed

Hi dedindi,
thanks for your feedback.
Unfortunately it is not possible to change the chord chain.
The song is a kind of canon. If I would change the chord chain then the canon would not work.
But I added now a new bass sequence add the end.
I think that is now my final version:
