Cult 45 is really awesome in terms of production and mood / vibe... much prefer it to what was happening in Pnumber. The splashy reverbs in C45 mixed with that somewhat brooding melody is a very unique sound that i'd like to hear more of

Happy to hear it, thanks so much for listening! I definitely want to make more tracks in that style.

Interesting, that's very useful feedback thanks again! I'll keep that in mind. I am self taught and am very ignorant to all the science and theory of music, all i have going for me is a ridiculous amount of experience figuring it out by doing it. Constructive feedback from likeminded people is invaluable to me. 

 

Also i love your avatar!

I uploaded a new track to Soundcloud called "Sleep Depraved". As the title might suggest it is ambient and moody. I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Nice ambience and chilled groove, love the noise percussion sound, very organic and analog sounding. The little vocal parts create a good unsettling mood and the chromatic melodies and interesting, has a nursery-like quality to it.

Thanks so much LemonMelon, it's really nice to read that! The noise percussion was indeed made on an analogue synth :)

This is an album i worked on from 2004-2011. It was all made with different hardware samplers, most of the sounds came from old VHS and cassette tapes. https://dollarstorek...lbum/omniishell

Hello, i just recently finished a track that seems to be heavily influenced by much of the music i saw Aphex Twin play at Day for Night in Houston. The strongest examples i could give would be Jlin, Qebrus and Sd Laika. I hope you guys enjoy!
Listen on Soundcloud.com

 

I love the weird tortured violin thingy you got going on here at around 1:43. It's dark and harsh, and at times sounds like it belongs in a Castlevania level. I'm thinking the munitions factory level on Castlevania: Bloodlines for Genesis :-p. Awesome.

Matrix Repair man is a crazy jam.

Bubbling weirdness.

Drunk atmo.

 

The pads at the end are glorious.

Really liked 'Pnumber', that snare has so much air, a really cool flavor on that 808 snare sound. The melodies in the break were sweet too (and that clap was killer after those). I checked out 'Past Tents' too: your skills at chopping breaks is tops, and the overall feel of the song is whimsical and cheerful in a nice way, sonically reminds me of songs from Aphex's RDJ album. One thing in terms of critique: I like the pun in the title 'Past Tents,' but if the song is about time then I thought there could have been a little time-conscious sound design going on, not necessarily more reverb or delay, but maybe reversing a melody here and there or something. Either way, sweet tracks man.

Yeah past tents is a beauty love the pitch shifting on the amens and the slow moving melody and textures over the top. I would like it if there was more low end but it feels like thats a creative choice to avoid those frequencies

Thanks so much to all of you for listening and for your thoughtful feedback.

Most of the credit for that goes to Qebrus, he mastered that track and added some punch and effects to the drums <3

Either way, sweet tracks man. 

I'm very happy and relieved by what you said about my break chopping, this is my first song using breaks. I was worried that i had no idea what i was doing! I'm using a Digitakt which isn't ideal but breaks are helpful due to it's other limitations.

I went with the name "Past Tents" partially because it reminded me of late 90's stuff like the RDJ album and early Mum. I really like your idea about time-conscious sound design, i'm gonna give that a shot. This track is part of a live set i'm writing so i'll be living with it for a while.

Apologies for populating your thread with a youtube vid, but if you keep working with breaks, wanted to recommend this one (starts at 3:15). I'm sure someone's done it before but I can't think of anything. Also, the EPs from the band Overmono last year had some killer break work.

That's a killer break, i appreciate you sharing it!

I had never heard of Overmono before, i'm checking them out right now and i'm liking what i'm hearing :)
