I loved it.
I don't see what's wrong with waiting an extra twenty seconds for the intro to pass. I liked your introduction... but of course I'm a Samphel music junkie so I'd play an intro to a documentary on cow dung if his song played during it.
Excellent animation here, folks. I liked the way you represented what was going on in the music while expressing a whole different thing with the art. The experimental side was nice as well.
Subtitles were a great addition, I only wish there was a scene select or replay button... after waiting for the video to load I'd like to be able to watch it more than once.
Overall, though, it was better than most music videos in the portal. Keep up the awesome work, guys, I'm looking forward to your future projects!
With the tension in the intro, I half expected the song to explode into some heavily distorted guitars accompanied by insane pyrotechnics, but it was a pleasant surprise to hear the drill'n'bass :) Sounded pretty rockin to me!
Not too much going on, nothing too involved melodic-wise, but the mood was nice and the percussion was great.
And hey, I learned a new word! :3
New words are always good.
The mood was what this one was all about. I wanted somewhat of a doom feeling.
Anyways, I'm glad you liked the drums :D and the rest! I appreciate the kind words always lamp :D
When it comes to drone, I'm usually used to hearing a much more fleshed out bass range right off the bat, but the intro really caught my attention. I had a couple visions of metallic birds just lounging around in trees, clicking at each other. Really nice atmosphere there :)
The bells at 1:40 were just enough to keep it interesting until the crescendos (or "swells," I guess?) started making everything sound just lovely.
Shame there isn't a bigger audience for this stuff, it's really pretty drone :)
At first, I was almost reminded of Kingbastard. Not sure if you've ever heard his electronic stuff (Tied Up to Machines, ect.) but the raw synths and dancey beat gave me his sort of feeling. The mood's pretty similar, too. For some reason, though, this has a really ethnic desert feel, though. It sounds like it's in a major key and a harmonic minor key at the same time. Huh. Whatever.
Somewhere later in the song, the saw synth started making me think of Benny Benassi. Then it went into some other things and it was sort of hard to follow all the "bay beh" clips and the sample that sounded like a bird cawing impression. They weren't awful, just awkward.
Automation was smoother than silky silk :)
Nice song! Groovy little beat, I just wasn't a fan of the samples.
What a drab review.
You probably thought the synths sounded familiar because I was using a Moog, which is like the most popular brand name synth in the industry. Haha
And yeah, I actually hate the "baby" clips, but it was 3am and I didn't even know what I was making. I'll take them out ;P
I love how they all are reacting to each other... the one trying to get away from the cat/dog one is hilarious... great job!
Heh, thank you. :) It was really fun to make.
