Greetings Fellow Composers!
Here’s my next release in my musical journey. Feel free to check it out and give any kind of feedback or critique.
As mentioned in the introduction section, I’m just an ordinary self learned music enthusiast from Finland.
Tempo: 65 / 85, 4/4
I believe the key is Bbm as the musical theory is not my strongest asset
Chord pattern or progression is simple: Fm / Db / Ab / Eb, switching Db to Bbm every now and then.
The creative vision actually kicked in when I got the whole song structure and some of melodies in place. I also made a modest video to support the vision or feeling what the track eventually provided me. Does the video support the track or does it lead the listener too much? I’ll let you decide.
As I’m still trying to learn and figure these things up, I’m always seeking the “best practices” or new stuff to try out whether it’s composing, production, mixing or mastering. My personal “lessons learnt” or tryouts were:
- Less is more, is it? Definitely, but is there still something too much?
- All instruments in the same reverb bus, try to play also with mic positioning if needed
- Not to add too much reverb in general and cut / eq some in the low end for some sharpness
- Reduce / compress overall mids for clarity
Disclaimer: These were just my ”tests” and based on my previous findings from my tracks or ideas, what I’ve read and some own a-ha moments. Those got some job done from my perspective. Question is that did I over cook it?
