Three Pieces of Nothing
on: February 05, 2019, 21:06:10
I have just added a new track to Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/martin_horky/3-pieces-of-nothing
It's more experimental than usually, it consists of three different parts, two of which are kind of a prelude to the third part...
The third part is in my usual style - soundtrackish, jazzrockish (rubbish)  :) with a guitar solo.
I am looking forward to reading your reviews, they are important to me.

The music was taking me little by little as the instruments were appearing creating a piece of machinery that worked great, however, when the 2nd part comes in it struck me as if it were something that has nothing to do with the sound world that was before ...

The second part has a very interesting personality and lightness, and a very particular breath enhanced by one of the sounds

As for the third part, I think you could use a freer bass that took away the rigidity of the piano chords and served as a bass bed to absorb the highs and middles of the rest of the instruments.

All the parts separately are interesting and special, for that reason, I think they deserve that you build a bridge to each one that serves as a shoehorn and eliminates the abruptness of those changes.

I hope you do not mind my comment but I think that your idea could work so much better

Well it grabbed me immediately. I love the way it builds in the first minute. The first part is really easy to listen to.  I really like the piano in the second part, a great change of direction. The final part is very contemporary, reminds me of The 1975 (good thing). You've done a fabulous job on this.

Alternative Rock, I don't think genres are important anyway, so I think the Altenative is to decide is it good music? And does it rock me?
And I say YES!

Interesting piece. I liked the sudden transition between 1 and 2 but the radically panned bells at the end of 2 felt a little disconcerting at first. As I listened again, though, I understood the intent.

The whole thing was a nice musical excursion.

 I listened twice.
Once, trying to connect the pieces. And I couldnít; not smart enough, I think.
And once , listening as if they were separate pieces.
And that run I like best.
I like the third part of the artwork best too, so maybe the artwork tries to tell me something.
Kind regards, Gus

I liked the musical elements here. The beginning sounds like a very lengthy introduction albeit also an interesting one.

 One trick to make the individual parts sound more blended would be to  tie some of the sounds  from the intro section into the next section. The arrangement seems to go to nothing but bells at the end of the first section. Then the second part comes in from that suddenly...so the idea is to begin to  reduce volume at the first  section  and slowly thin the instruments leaving a few parts whilst bringing in some of the second section instruments slowly also at the end of the first part. You could then either come in suddenly as you have done of bring in  some volume automation . This would all make the transition seem more like a minor bump instead of a pothole.

I like those dreamy sounds like soundtrack of a good movie of the 70s
I think it's a beautiful music that can transport you to where you take it
Very good work
