Authors' Notes

No matter where I go, no matter what I do
All my days begin and end with you


Another pseudo-pop song. This was the ninth track of my RPM project, and since I wanted it to make RPM's deadline, it's been finished for a little while now. I just had to adjust my xrns file to be compliant with SDCompo's rules...

Because of the rushed nature of the project, I didn't have time to really do any showing off, though I do like the chain-o-delays I made to do the dub-echo effect.

Hey Chris.. Sometimes a clean mix is "showing off" enough. :) Great tightness to the percussion. Unique use of vocal processing. This song evokes a feeling of melancholy in me for some reason, maybe it is the sparseness and the chords. Very moody :)
Congrats on finishing the RPM challenge!
Good luck!

crazy fx going on with track 13 (the growly lead thingy). it's cool, but maybe needs EQ to sit better in the mix.
i like the chords / melody. but the arrangement overall is quite sparse and I wish there was something else here.

yea this tune is really nice - a well written electro pop ish tune. i think with some more time spent polishing would really make this something incredible.

Listening and typing again...
Hey Chunter. I look forward to your tunes too.
As io says. A nice clean mix. Interesting melody. I agree with tenfour on wanting something else.
The drums are well sequenced.

I don't know exactly why but somehow this song touches me deep !
Maybe it's because it has this Oldfield-feeling (five miles out) and I'm a total Oldfield fan.

I already told you that I like it and I still like this version.
Beside the mellow I Love the bassline and the rythm.

More later ...

ABSOLUTELY GREAT !!

The subdued synth-vocals sort of reminded me of Mogwai. (Such as "Hunted By a Freak") The bass line reminds me of "Lolita Ya-Ya." (I actually hate that song but there's nothing wrong with the line itself, and it works well in your song.) I agree with others that the arrangement is sparse and could perhaps use something more. Nonetheless, it is well-structured, and the bittersweet melody is well-crafted.

chunter...
...
we should collab! ;)

will comment on the songs... soon.

EDIT: I'm wishing for more apparent vocals right now, but the composition is supremely mellow. I enjoy how the melody fits into the harmony - unexpectedly, but snugly. the way that echoey synth introduces the track is amazing. great!

Nice vocals and long-living chords. The solo is a bit too loud/harsh for the song perhaps.
Some parts reminds me of portishead, nice job

I like the sparse arrangement.. something sounds a bit off, though.. can't really put my finger on it...
the part just before the 'growly lead' is my favourite.. there you have a solid base for a new track.. the solo is cool in parts but too freaked out
in others on top of the tightly held together background... well, all in all a nice chilled out track and as someone said.. with a little bit more polishing

Comment by hexmode on 2009-03-09 17:03:47

I really like this laid back tune. Very mellow and lovely. Arrangement doesn't seem sparse... works very well for me. I would only complain about the volume of the growly lead, as others did.

Comment by nt on 2009-03-09 18:26:08

I also like the laid back mood of this tune. The refrain is pretty gentle and lovely. The mass-lead melody would be a great solo with some different chords in the background. But when you continue your solo with the W-It's-Over instrument, you build a nice contrast and all sounds pleasant again. Also switching back to the refrain is a nice move so it all calms down again. Nice delay work you did on the hats.

Chunter, the more I listen to this, the more it grows on me. It's haunting.
