New composer looking for feedback on tracks.

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for various ways to improve, I know one for sure is my production skills. I'm currently working on them through books and lessons. I would like some feedback on all aspects of my music and ways to improve. Feel free to be as brutally honest as possible, I really want to know where my weaknesses lie. 

 

My tracks are found here:

Hey Nick!

Welcome! Thank you for sharing some of your work for feedback. I agree with you - production is one of your weak areas right now. I would also try and learn more about arranging and actual composition techniques. When listening through several of your tracks, one thing to struck me was how static everything was in the overall feel and dynamics of your work. You have some cool ideas and I liked your music but there wasn't much evolution or dynamic changes from section to section. Part of this comes from better production chops but it can also come from becoming a better arranger and composer. 

City of Synth was my favorite of the bunch! Keep studying and pushing!!

Thanks, 

Nate

      Hello everyone!

      I'm one of the creators of the Colossal Game Music Collection and, as we now approach the end of the first year in which the collection has been released, we are currently planning our first major update to it...  As such, we thought it would be cool to ask you guys first about what sort of music content indie devs are most looking for and what they think it's currently missing on the asset markets. We would truly appreciate your opinions on this, as it would be crucial to improve the quality and usability of our collection. Here it goes:

      - Our first question is in regards to the type of music currently available to indie devs (for example "Action", "Horror", "Fantasy"...) and not just in regards to the game genre, but also to the type of instrumentation / production (for example "Electronic", "Orchestral", "Ambient"...). What type of game music asset types are you most in need these days and feel like they're lacking on the marketplaces?

      - The second question is in regards to how the music itself is presented in the asset packs. For instance, we have been making 5 original tracks per pack available on the collection, available as both full tracks and seamless loops (sometimes with also smaller / longer versions available, as well as multiple small loops). Do you think this is the best approach? Or would you prefer the music to be presented in any other way?

      Any other information you can give is also very much welcomed.
      Cheers!

      Hey there! My name is Cpaws and I compose music, sound effects and overall sound design for video games and film. I'm looking to work on a horror game mainly for fun and as an addition to my portfolio. I've used Unity & Wwise before for audio implementation.
      If you're interested in working together, don't hesitate to contact me at cpawsmusic@gmail.com
      Here's a few demo reels of my past projects: 1. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eMgkFhEi87I 2. https://vimeo.com/230719152 3. https://vimeo.com/231022046

      Greetings!
      I'm a producer of electronic music, mostly synthwave and prog house. Music is an excellent tool to tell a story, at times indescribable with spoken words.
      This is a sample of my work.
       
      I'm open to suggestions and opinions.

      I'm pursuing a career as a composer/music producer and I'd like some feedback on my music. Please check out the embedded tracks below as well as my other works on Soundcloud and let me know what you think.
      Update: I have done some post production work on the below "edited" tracks to boost their volume. It should be much easier to hear everything that is happening within them now without maxing out the volume on your device.
