    Hi Beatsinger. Thank you for taking time to listen!

    Yeah your suggestion makes sense and is doable regarding doubling the vocals in the verses and springboards. I did in the chorus though.
    I left out the slide/ear candy out of the first verse intentionally. I’ll pop the hood and look into it and see about booking some more time:)
    Btw, I tried to pm you a couple times a couple weeks ago, but you were closed for business.
    Anyway, I really appreciate your feedback and meta-data thoughts!
    Stay well my friend.

    Hey RoboKirk,

    I’ll leave the EQ, compression, saturation, etc, to others more in the know, but I have to say I think you’re on to something here. I love the dissonance/sharps/flats as the theme of this! Makes a 12 bar really come to life for me! The title fits the piece nicely!!
    I can imagine it is quite fun for you to work on. Keep it up and thanks for sharing!

    Hi Anders,

    For the genre you’re working with here, the songs, to me, seem ready to go. However, I must say I’m a song guy. I’m sure you’ll find better critiques by those in the know.
    If I had to say anything the piano sound/tone in the first three pieces sound pretty close. Maybe that’s your vision though. For me the sound/tone sounded really nice in the first piece especially. More variety in sound/tone of the piano on the others? Maybe not.
    In “I Won’t Wait For The Future,” (which I rather like a lot) maybe consider getting to the verse faster?
    I’m curious what others have to say, but I feel you’re doing very well. Nice work.

    “how many do you put in yourself to suggest that the track is a trailer track and not a continuous underscore which needs to be rebuilt in order to add those specific edits.”

    I don’t. Like I said, this is not my world. I write songs. Just offering my impressions:) I really like what you’re doing though:) Again, love to hear what you finally end up doing with it!

    Hey Dominic!

    Self-indulgent? I don’t know. This is not my world, but having said that, I like what you’re doing:) My overall impression… and I could be very wrong here, is that on Vespera, the piece seems to stop and start a lot and take a while to get to the strings. Maybe the end could be more dramatic? I don’t know. However, having said that, it almost sounds as though it was written around a particular scene in a horror production. That’s good!

    I’ll be curious to see what other’s in your world have to say about it. I rather enjoyed it:)
    Good luck my friend!!

    Hey Beatslinger! Thank you for weighing in!!

    Your suggestions hadn’t occurred to me. When you say check out LA Trade Publications, which one(s) do you feel would be most useful? It’s been years since I used e.g., Hollywood Reporter (if they’re still around) and do publications actually have requests for songs for projects? I used to subscribe to Billboard and remember they would have articles about who’s doing what…but I’m green as green can be about it now.

    If not, that’s cool, I’ll run down to the bookstore and see what I can find:)

    Stay well my friend.

    Hey James,

    My initial impression is that the song’s close to recording. Nice job fellas!

    I would say, however, some cosmetic lyric re-writes i.e., 2nd vs. may be wise to consider. Specifically the first, second and fourth lines. “Code” stuck out to me. You might consider shortening the 4 line something like, “We can/will be great, forever we/we’ll stand” something that smooths the line out. Spend each word like a hundred dollar bill:)

    While the chorus (musically) works, you might try “lifting” the melody…make it a bit different. To my mind, there’s not enough differentiation chord wise and/or melodically from the verses to bring home the bacon so to speak:) Obviously, I could be very wrong about this. Just a thought.
    Lastly, I really think you guys should consider a female vocal. Not necessarily a “tween” but more mature “teen.” A torch song for the women’s movement comes to mind. Empowering sort of thing.
    Thanks for sharing. Hope some of this helps. Look forward to hearing the end product. Good luck my friend!
