So I’d started writing before I got to the end of the post.
Well you’ve got far more talent than I ever had with digital recording and digital art…
I’ll preface any constructive criticism of your music by saying that it’s not really my genre… I’m more of a rock/grunge/punk/indie/crunch type person. And I have trouble hearing lyrics too, so mostly all I hear is the instrumental music.
Now that’s out of the way, I think you’ve got some really cool elements in there. Personally, I think you could use a little more punch at times (that’s just my personal taste, but I can see why you went for more simplicity as far as keeping the lyrics from being washed out). I like the darkness and melancholy of the chords and sequences you chose. I’d maybe also bring up your instrument levels to match the vox a little more, the detail in the instruments gets a little lost behind the vox, and I would have liked to hear it a little better. That would also give it all a little more separation and clarity. As an ex-engineer (mostly analogue), I have certain things that make me happy, but nobody else cares about much. . You’ve done well!
I’ve got more experience with the graphics side of things (over digital music), and I really like what you’ve done there. Were they screenies of the game? Or did you do those ship/galaxy shots too?
I was involved with a game called WW2 Online for ages. It’s still kicking around out there, surprisingly.
I made a movie with my squadron. The vid is extremely jerky, a limitation of the platform and technology. Was around 2004 or something I think… I didn’t keep a copy of it, so it’s on someone else’s Youtube account now.
