Wow
Love the great surround sound of this song.... enveloping.. chilling...ominous... like a storming about to explode.. hypnotic and eventually pulls you to a trance-like state.... big big thumbs up!

Like it...
Cool stuff Alex, like to hear it with vocals too, kinda of that 9-inch nails sound to it, with some lighter variations in the middle to mix it up rather well.

Flattering
comparison (speaking of NIN). Yes, the same old prob with having no convenient singer yet.
Thanks M.J.

very spacey
The title is apt. I can see an astronaut floating around aimlessly in space when I listen to this. The mix seems a little "heavy" to me - I think it would be more effective if the soundscape were more layered (maybe some different reverbs /compression on the separate tracks), but overall the arrangement keeps things flowing well. Cool start. Let me know when you get vocals on this.

Helpful advice
You are right, actually the single notes and instruments somehow stick to each other and could become clearer. I will work on this. The fight for vocals surely will become the biggest obstacle.

Like that drum?
If thats what you can call it. I think it could use a little more filling in it, but the synths work out pretty nicely.

Heavy
Love the way the synth wraps around the beat. You are right some vocals would be excellent on top of this mabye female. Excellent arrangement!!!!
alexweiler said 3888 days ago (April 22nd, 2007)
Female or male
thanks egobandit. I'm still undecided ... male or female ... but in default of any singer, I wouldn't be picky.

darky

Yes, I will
have to turn on the compressors and punch the drums and synths. The track needs several tunings and to be worked out properly ;) Thanks for your advice, craft.

I like
the hard, vintage synth sound and how they're built into a song.

love the beat and the j-m j vibe
U seem to be into the same genres i am. but more french in a way. the beats are alternative and very european. the melodies and instruments are very Jean Michelle Jarre like. Nice progression of the melodies, pro stuff! It shows that u take the time to finish a track. There is a lesson to be learned for me there. Another good one.
alexweiler said 3863 days ago (May 17th, 2007)
French
interesting comment ... you wrote about the french way ... which french bands (beside J-M J) do you have in mind? Meanwhile I did listen to some of your tracks, yes we are somehow addicted to the same genre and those crude 80ies retro sounds.

*0's revival
Yeah Alex, this has an 80's kinda vibe ... parts reminded me of Gary Numan. A pretty dark track, with a very cinematic feel ... scary stuff.

Nice work man.

80ies child
as a child of the decade i'm pretty addicted to that electronic stuff, and i have ro say, i especially like the earlier 80ies synthie pop era. but i really love to listen to handmade (which makes more than 50 percent of my CDs). thanks, again

electronic dreams
This is big and "sproingy". I like the weird percussive twangs, coupled with the big dreamy synth washes... creates a rather eerie feeling, and the piece is very well-put together. I almost want a little more deep-bass-twangy echoey stuff, but that is pretty minor. This is good in a mind-stretching unusual way. The photo is certainly unsettling too.
ttfn,
Drakonis

unsettling
thanks for stopping, drakonis ... the song was intented to be a kind of unsettling, so at this point i scored a goal. Yes, maybe i should work out the bass. thanks for your comment.

dirty electro
andrew, thanks for popping in again ... this song is another try to create a dark, dirty, dull electronic soundscape ... hard to disguise, that i somehow stuck to the 80ies.

meanwhile i listened to some of your cool electro creations ... I got familiar with this (ladytron-ic) sound from the very first listen. More to follow ...
