Liked the bass you used... that is up until 0:32 when it suddenly without warning, vanished. But thankfully it did make a re-appearance at 0:50! When the bass isn't there, the whole thing sounds a bit thin.
Overall I liked it though. Lots of variety, and quite unique. Liked the vocoder.

The contrast between sections is striking. The piece is always subtlety evolving and never dull.

I would have preferred a bass less reminiscent of a TB-303 and less reverb in the mix.

Great job overall. :tu:

Thank you Frantz for commenting. The stereo spread was added in the mastering process, might be a little much..

I loved the bass sound and motif. I did miss it during the early sections where it dropped out. Maybe you could have used a modified motif (lower volume, or maybe pitch shifted) during those sections. Nice vocoder sound and the mix was great.

Good work :)

The sudden drop of the bass and total shift to a completely different "tune" was jarring. The bouncing around of different ideas is a little chaotic but not uninteresting. Just difficult to follow. All in all, not bad but kind of disjointed for my tastes. I prefer more subtle transitions. This song seems like it doesn't know what it wants to be and is all over the place.

On the plus side, it's not boring and the mix is good.

Thanks for listening! Quite harsh transitions, I know, but hopefully listenable :)

Thanks for your comment. The sections are standing on their own, I just glued them together :lol: :hihi: But I am glad, you found something delightable in there..
