Nice dreamy kind of tune. The setup is perhaps a bit too simple. Its also not my strongest part, bu try to have some more variation. I like your atmo-tunes!

Hey Justin... Agree with what Knetter said. It's nice to hear an entry from you though. You've got almost 20 entries in the compo now! Very consistent :)

I really like the way this evolves. Lovely.
Fits the title well.

i know, that the tune's setup is very simple, but i only had about 2 hours to compose it :-(
I'll hope to bring more variation with my next entries ;)

Thanks for your comments so far

The fact that you actually kept my interest up through the whole song means something., I guess... maybe it took me three and a half minute to read the other comments and fiddle around with something else :) ... but all in all... the bassline and drums are tracked well and builds a solid loop but need more variation to keep interest.. what catches this tracks fall is the strings/bells atmos...
and with the background of you having two hours to compose this makes me wonder what you would've come up with if you had more time...

i'm really not a great fan of static octave-up-down basslines, but the more elements are added, the more pleasant the bass becomes.
overall feels a bit generic maybe, but i guess within two hours there isn't much room for details with sugar on top.
still a pleasant listen and good job on the "Atmo 01" track!

two hours? dang dood.
actually, this reminds me of music from cave story, especially due to that octave bass sound. love the growing sound. I like the simplicity, especially with the bass, which is enhanced by all the other elements you put in the song.

Reminds me of J.M. Jarre. soft n sweet. I was waiting for the song to start :) Sounds like a long intro

Comment by Knetter on 2009-03-08 14:11:13

For two hours....? o_O! Nice job then..! The beat sounds good and full btw.

Comment by tenfour on 2009-03-08 14:24:52

your style is instantly recognizable. yea 2 hours is amazing for this. kinda sounds like a christmas song. send it to Macy's or Nordstrom for the holidays. You did manage to pull some really nice sounds from the samplepack. Agree with keith303 - the atmo 01 track is heavenly. excuse my use of the word "heavenly" i just hear a commercial which described philli cream cheese that way.

Heyo Justin,

I like this one. Especially I like the chord harmony+progression and the sweet melody.
Drum programming is great ... !!
For 2 hours this is an astonishing achievement

But again this song cries for a refrain or whatever. Indeed there appeared one before my inner eye.
Oh I just see ... Juolac says what I couldn't express better: it's like a long intro. I mean it's a good
intro, but with a refrain/verse/strophe and so on this would be a really great tune.
(says the man who made a monotonous 1 minute song ;-) ... sorry )

Hint: mixing seems to be pretty nice for 2 hours. but I'd wish there were more stereo seperation using simple panning instead of stereoX.
StereoX is generally ok, but tends to create somehow thin sound and you could get problems with mono-compatiblity when excessive used.

Nice one !

Greetings ... :-)

I actually think more Giorgio Moroder in this than Jarre, though I guess there's not that much difference; this sounds like a tune that is to be played in the background of a film to me, because it doesn't have a strong lead melody anywhere.

From the title Lullaby, I had imagined something much softer than this, actually, because I thought of the husband/wife group Lullatone:

There is a sense of softness in your piece, though, it's nicely done.

Comment by cralias on 2009-03-09 08:53:18

I like this kind of stuff, you know. Them tinkels doing the melody :) As Airmann already mentioned, it could have refrain. And cut out the bassline somewhere. However, for 2 hrs time it's certainly a thing I must look up to.

Comment by Airmann on 2009-03-09 17:49:28

Your Chord-progression stuck in my head today. Good thing !
