Feedback on tracks & networking advice

Recommended Posts

Hey guys! First post here ^_^

So like the post title reads, I'm looking for some feedback on a few electronic tracks as well as some advice on where to begin with networking (specifically, contacting indie devs about getting some music placed without coming off as a lame solicitor).

I've seen a few "work" sections on this site and other similar ones, but none of them really seem to have anything remotely helpful in terms of music - or maybe I just suck at using the search tool? I've also taken to twitter and acquired a fair amount of followers, but I'm not getting the results I want, mainly being conversations with people who are working on games (even minimal budget indie games) about scoring. Any helpful advice would be greatly appreciated!

And lastly, here are three tracks I'd really appreciate some feedback on! Mostly about mix and composition. I know the master levels are a little low, and I prefer to keep it that way and retain full dynamic range. Thank goodness the loudness wars are over haha. 

Tension track: https://soundcloud.com/spacepengu/farewell-sleep 

Guitar & synth track: https://soundcloud.com/spacepengu/guitar-synth

Chill / relaxing electronic track: https://soundcloud.com/spacepengu/chill-space-92816-439-am

Thanks so much guys, looking forward to reading your replies!

As someone coming up in the composing field as you are, I feel your frustration. Getting a minor following seems to be the biggest hurdle to leap over for most music producers.

 

As for your songs, I enjoyed the blend of hip-hop, synths, and real guitars, which make for a unique blend of songwriting. Keep making songs that you enjoy and try to expand your range as well.

When it comes to getting a following, you need to grind it out. It'll be slow, and you'll need to change tactics at times to keep their attention. Seek out people too that are in like-minded, as that'll help you grow by helping them grow.

Thanks so much guys! I'll definitely keep up the slow grind and continue trying to talk to as many people as I can handle without burning myself out on social interaction >.< The struggle is pretty real, but I'll keep at it as long as I need to!
