Exquisite darkness
Welcome to Macjams! What a nice introduction piece, I like it a great deal. I hope it is OK to make suggestions? I think this is very good, and worth making sure to push it to perfection (it is not far from perfection now.) There seems to be a little problem with the mix, it sounds possibly mixed too "loud", it is close to clipping, or maybe it is too compressed? Maybe lower the overall volume slightly, and reduce the compression a little? The siren that comes in is perfect, and very chilling... but I might suggest lowering its volume slightly and giving it more hall-reverb, so it sounds further away. That might make it more realistic sounding.

But those are the only suggestions. Overall, great writing, great guitar/bass work. This does give a feeling of helplessness, ennui. Very well done! I'm off to tell some other Macjammers to listen to you. I look forward to more music from you, after I recover from this one :-)

ttfn,
Drakonis

Positive suggestions
Thank you darkonis for you support and suggestions, yes the is a beat in the song, which starts from first of it, it has too much bass so it made some problems for me in mixing, I'll try to fix it by limiting frequency og that bit hope it will work, or as you said, lowering master volume will help, The sire already has hall reverb effect but I will add more to check it out how it becomes.

Thanks and feel free in telling your suggestions.

Killer!
This is gorgeous. Really took my breath, could be a cinematic soundtrack somewhere but really amazing. The guitar sounds so nice and nice beats feelings you captured, impressive choice of sounds. I'll leave the mix and use of effects to Eduard "Drakonis", I agree with him.

I bow deeply for this work man, really out of words!

Big WELCOME to MacJams, hope you'll enjoy your time here

Loved it from the begining
with the warped vocals. All the sounds are really powerful and love the melodies/harmonies that you have created here and very atmospheric esp when sirens kick in. A very good first submit. Well done, cracking track.

Mid- Eastern Lullaby
Hello Confounded and Welcome to Mj
A beautiful atmostpheric landscape sound.

I love this and all I hear is what Drakonis says nothing too serious its really gorgous and I had same problems when I first started here.
but lots of expert help and i have come on leaps and bounds.

it really does sound wonderful, I am still downloading and putting this little gem on my Ipod. Your very talented. Thank you for sharing.

Peace Dee

it is a lullaby in terrors
it is difficult to relax. it sounds stressful there. a lullaby is needed. this music is bleak. it is sadness in the ears. it is beautiful. it speaks to this bleak heart too. thank you for the lullaby. 0x0

This is a very powerful piece of music. Wow. You took me on quite a journey with this one. The only suggestion I have is to maybe try out a few different sounds for the breathy flute part around 5:00. My ear was wanting it to be something a little harsher, a little bit brighter to go with the feeling of the piece. The flute just seemed a little too subdued - not...angry enough, not dissonant enough.

Thank you for sharing this with us - alot of emotional honesty in this piece. I look forward to hearing more from you.

Fine brooding piece of music
Builds nicely to an interesting climax with the drums. It works as an instrumental - but I could imagine a Lisa Gerrard or Azim Ali type of vocal crooning from the middle of your mix. I actually liked the volume and placement of the siren - which brought some positive tension at the right moment. I look forward to more of your work!

Thanks
Thank you for the welcome and for your idea about the song. These sentences give me the enrgy to work more on it.
Another good thing here is the level of understanding netween members, may cause they are artists, and an artist must know about the inside!
You suppused the song write, but a sad and sorrowful or even tired lullaby. A lullaby for my beautiful country which is demised by some idiots, and for my modern-sick and stressful city with it's depressed atmosphere, hard rules, hard lifes and blah blah blah...
A lullaby for myself from my inner feelings, for a mind which is blowing from thoughts...

The breathing sweeping synth sure is a great
background for this wonderful movie track type instrumental.

And in that is chuck full of great sound effects very well placed I think.

A wonderful addition to MJ and of course you as well.

Thanks for such a great intro to us MJers.

Davisamerica just started a forum thread about this song - I totally trust his taste, so came over to have a listen to this. I'm completely stunned. This is one of the best things I've heard on MJ, period. It's filled with emotion, conflict, grief, hope, HEART. You've put this together so perfectly - even though some of the suggestions I've read below are probably good ones, I can only focus on how amazing this is. I'm excited to have you at MJ and hope to hear much more of your incredible talent transformed into music. If this is an example of what you can do, we're in for an ongoing treat. Welcome to MJ!

Lullaby
I liked the overall feel to this piece and the sythn sounds are appropriate and very nicely done. The recording sounded fine to me over my computer speakers.

My only suggestion is to drop the drums at the end for something simpler or tympani rather than a set of drums. Your piece has a classical feel to it and I think the classical drums would emphasis the feel.

Overall, very well done and welcome to MacJams.

shavingronaldscar said 3479 days ago (May 15th, 2008)
word!
I too caught the forum thread. great work! I'm not sure I agree with the constructive suggestions that have been given below. One thing I would say is that the synths come in too loud and strong when the drum beat kicks in. I think they dominate in a place where so many nice little things could come through strongly instead. But mixing is an art unto itself, (as is illustrated by the presence of disagreement,) and I feel that you have accomplished what you set out to accomplish. beautiful work!

Dark and sweet
Interesting track. You move between various modes. The beginning is the most adventurous, with some interesting sound manipulation going on. Then lots of big synths with a couple of subtle filter sweeps. The bass drum every measure sounds strange. As if its character is not constant, and also it sounds a bit off the beat. It's probably on the beat, but shifting it forward might psycho-acoustically help a bit to make it *feel* on the beat.

The siren section is pretty cool. That initial drum hit is wonderful, and the low rumblings are pretty gut-rumbling too.

The more traditional drums are mixed very well. Nice job. That bass at the end was a surprise, but a good one.

In all, an interesting track with lots of cool sounds. Good stuff.

drakonis' comments, and I found the mix to be very nice. We really don't state.of.the.art recording studios, do we?

The piece itself, it very haunting and artistic. Some also mentioned soundtrack. I could see that.

Outstanding job. And WELCOME.
