Sound Patchwork - Part 2 by thsantac 1 month ago

It has been a while since I spent time on iComp. But there is no doubt that when I finally felt like listening here again your music would be the very first thing I listend to bcause I know it will be excellent.

And indeed it is. Brilliant work that keeps me excited from start till finish. Bravo.

I need to spend some time on your symphonic work.

Seafood on a Monday by RazbaqueDirge 1 year ago

The acoustic bass and the delay on the guitar/mandolin sounding lead. I love it. Fantastic track. The simple acoustic percussion and perfectly measured synth pads rounds it all off perfectly.
SWEET ALMOND EYES by Lagusaya2 1 year ago
Fantastic song Stan. I love the harp.
Clash by ShadowofNine 1 year ago
I know how difficult it is to make sampled instruments sound like a real orchestra. Even with the finest tools and most expensive libraries it is still hard work. Well. I can only say it was worth it. It sounds very real to me.

I have still not been willing to cough up the money for the East/West universe. I must say that when I hear this I get tempted.

Fantastic composition. Great great music. I love the brass work and the choirs. Wow. Bravo!

The Miracle of Space and Time (Ennead #8) by mfwmiles 1 year ago
Fantastic piece of work. I can hear that you put a lot of work in this and it has been worth it. A complere EP. A small world built up. A travel in time. Super!
Dawn Arrives (atmospheric underscore) by MikeMarino 1 year ago

Beautiful build-up.
Very fit for a company presentation video.

I understand what Thierry means. When it ends you long for more. Take that as a 100% compliment. As a commercial, even 1.5 minute is very long. So you got the best out of the frame you work within. Bravo

It sounds so good. Even when I started listening on my iPad Pro it sounded so well mixed. And on the speakers, .... Again. WOW

And what a cool vocal. Beautiful. And the music so well played. Not too much noises. Just perfect to balance the vocal and hit the groove. Super track.

Death and the mother by sookin01 2 years ago

I have lived in or around Copenhagen for 51 years and I have never been at Statens Museum for Kunst (National Gallery of Denmark). I guess I should make an effort to go soon inspired by this wonderful music. Well composed and performed
I'm To Blame by Cinderella 2 years ago
As a musician that loves to experiment with different genres, it is fantastic to the country girl turn into a real rock-Mamma. Cool song. Love it
This Broken World by JonCSebastian 2 years ago

I sense a lot of pain and hurting in this music. There are strong feelings in motion here. The advantage of beeing an artist is that one can often take the pain in life and move it from the soul to the piece of art - like a piece of music, or a painting. And then it is lighter on the soul. And the true wonder is that the spectator or the listener is enriched by the same piece of art. Like if you learn something. Or maybe we just make our life more complete because a full life is a lot of joy and happiness as well as pain and loss. The art has the ability to share both happiness and sorrow. Wonderful listen for me.
Lucky Luke {Why I'm at War} by pharmakeus 2 years ago

Fantastic lyrics

Love Lies Waiting by JeffMcCaskill 2 years ago

This is a great song. Wonderful melody. Wonderfully played on the guitar. Very well sung.
And I can really relate to the lyrics, when I met my wife in Montreal December 96, me returning to Copenhagen, got married in Montreal May 97, and till we finally lived together in Copenhagen August. That is 20 years ago and the love is still strong. Yes, I can relate to the song.

Impulse by MetropolisGorai 2 years ago
Fun track with some interesting ways it is harmonized. Cool work
Took My Eyes off The Ball (Track 1 of Piranhas In Pyjamas) by JimTheObscure 2 years ago
I like this weard factor average stuff. Unique song form that does not sound like a pop hit manufacturing line product. I like the guitar playing.
The acoustic guitar is mixed and processed very much to be in the front. The vocal is mixed to be very much in the back or in another room. I would try and bring then a little more together.
From Nowhere by thsantac 2 years ago

I had already decided to favorite and download this track after a minute or so. I am listening a second time and typing as I listen again.

Wow what an intro in a retro J.M. Jarre analog synth mood. I love the dreamy sound, the chorus. I like the melodic theme. And when the fuzzed electric guitars and heavy drumming sets I am a big smile on my face. What a transition. Crazy and mad! The good way! And we continue in a heavy progressive rock style with a massive wall of sound. Fantastic drumming around the 5-6 minutes. And I love the lead guitars after the 6 minutes when the drumming pauses. And then back to the choirs and utter beauty. The fade in of the hard rock again. Brilliant! The lead guitar melodic motives are really well placed in the whole piece. Fantastic masterpiece. You have done it again. I still have a little more than a TB on the NAS so keep them coming.
Old Friends by KennethLavrsen 2 years ago
@toveco Thanks for the nice words and critique is always welcome on my music. As I write in the description the piano and guitar patches do not sound authentic and I guess John "Skippy" Lehmkuhl (PluginGuru) intended that because it is not a reverb plugin but a 1 seconds release on the ADCR envelope that adds the long tail. The sound is built from a single sample of a piano which is then stretched and processed to give this spacey dream sound. He actually layered some random robot mumbling on top which I finally removed. The piece evolved from being two synths and then I later added more and more classical instruments. I finally removed the original synth stringy thing. I did consider replacing the "Android" piano with a real one and the Stratus M patch with a real acoustic guitar patch but I decided to keep them as they were. I am sure it would have sounded great with the acoustic patches making the whole piece an all acoustic piece. But I like to experiment. Even if the result becomes a bit odd to the naked ear that hears it the first time. It is easier when the music is pure electronic. But when you layer electronics and classical acoustics you play with people's memory about how things normally sound.

Thanks for taking the time to give critique. I really like that.
A Fine Young Man by geoff_wales 2 years ago

There is nothing like a song that has its roots in real feelings. That kind of songs touch our souls.

This is really powerful and beautiful and so honest. It moves me.

DANCING ON A CLOUD AT DUSK by Bowman 2 years ago

Wonderful music. Really well written and performed. And the painting of the clouds with music is clear and detailed.

@becwil - that must be the most brilliant comment to a song I have ever read anywhere on any site. Those words fit the music 100% and it enhanced my experience as a listener reading the words.

GONE, GONE, GONE by jibes 2 years ago

You are not alone in beeing too busy for music. It is the first time I have listened to iComp since March. We all live a full life and sometimes we have to put put attention somewhere else. But then it is even more nice to return to the music.

I love this song. Wonderful melody and lovely chords with it. I like the live sound. Both mix and the instrument playing. Lovely vocal work. Really nice

The March Of The Empire by thsantac 2 years ago

As always, fantastic sound and arrangement. Things sound fantastic from start till end.
Super dramatic music which most people would think is the soundtrack to an expensive Hollywood production.
Really well composed. I love the chorus work and the mix of synth and full orchestra.

In short. This goes straight to my NAS. It is an other keeper from you. Bravo

It is the first day I listen to iComp for two months so sorry for the late review.
