"Melancholy on a battlefield" 2 hours composition

Post by Arko » Sun 18 Nov 2018 23:44

Hi everyone,

This is a rather old track made in 2 hours for a french stream show (Remix Live).
I'm new around here and I would love to have some feedback on this track.

Cheers !

Can you tell us more about the context ? For instance, what do you mean by : remix live ?

It's a show on Twitch hosted by a streamer (Xavier Dang aka MisterMV), Remix Live is the name of the show.
We pick a theme together (using a raffle in the chat), and we start composing.
After the 2 hours, we upload our track on Soundcloud and listen to everything while reacting in the chat.
Some evening, we were around a hundred people participating to the "contest" (nothing to win).
It was very fun to do.

There is an unpleasant chord progression (to my ears at least) between 1.10-1.14 and a pleasant one between 0.33-0.41.
The overall piece is quite decent (moreover for a two hours contest).

Good programming and good mix, very clear.

Thanks, I wasn't too sure about the mix. I'm never too sure about it. Glad to know it sounds ok.

About the chord progression, I confess I do it very organically without really knowing what I'm doing (I have a very light music background).
I .. break the rules, you know.

haha
there is just an unpleasant dissonance in the chord (removing one note, the unpleasant one, should be enough).
