Warning: I love music but I suck at it on the technical level. So, you’re gonna get a lot of “you know, that beat that happens when you do the thingie with the keyboard…” :-?
I really, really like this. I think a lot in movie ways lol and so the first few seconds of the song reminded me of Buck Rogers meets Daft Punk. Being a sci-fi junkie that’s almost the ultimate compliment. It feels like 70’s sound effects merge with contemporary electronica. Obviously, I’m a fan of both and I can see them combined and work as well. In this piece however, there is one little sound (that 70’s like sound) that doesn’t work (for me) taking into consideration the lyrics and the title. I don’t know how to refer to the sound but it starts at 0:28 and sounds like an “electronic organ.” (See, I told you it would get ugly!). It’s so slight but it makes it just a tad “cheesy” for me, personally. My opinion, my taste… others may not see it that way at all. I wish that sound had more of a hollowness to it or something like it to steer away from the “organ sound.” But maybe that’s what you were going for. And in regards to the lyrics and the title, I would “dirty it up” just a little bit more. In some spots I really got a sense of “corroded circuits (and in reference to the lyrics),” but not enough. It all feels a little too chipper. It’s a bit like “smooth computer jazz.”
I LOVE everything else – pretty much 95% of it is awesome to me. The lyrics rock and I hope someone tries to make a video – the visuals are awesome and so eclectic. The beat flows perfectly with the voice.
I like how you’ve stretched the intro and ending. I figured this was an instrumental piece but then the lyrics chime in. It’s a refreshing composition in that sense.
I listened to it on headphones and picked up little noises that really added atmosphere. Sounded like little electronic bugs tapping through the circuitry (yeah, I know… here I go again). And if that wasn’t intentional and you don’t know wtf I’m referring to then we/I have a problem!! LOL
The ending is really powerful. I love how you sort of cradle the lyrics.
