• Hey Raymond, thanks for your input! It's much appreciated. What do you suggest I do to breathe some life into it?

    The idea of the piece was to see what i could do with one simple musical idea. If you could find a way to make it less predictable, I'd love to hear your ideas!

  • Hi!

    I think it's pretty good for what it is. Like Raymond said, it would work well for chilling with a drink or smoke. And I really like the "odd" sounding synth melody around 2:33. I'm a sucker for those types of sounds :)

  • Hey Eric,

    Thanks for the feedback, I really appreciate it. I have always been a sucker for quirky and wierd sounds and melodies. I always try to some how incorporate it into my music.

    Cheers, Ryland

  • I prefer to withhold my music until a while after it's done. That helps me judge it a little more objectively.

    Two things I would do with this one, and this is really about what I like, not necessarily relevant to your objectives, is to use a different sound than the one introduced at 1:15--one without the edge. That would be if you decided to abandon the Clint Eastwood idea and go for something suitable for, say, Music From The Hearts Of Space. To do the Clint thing, you would need something more obvious. Some spaghetti western guitar sounds would hit the audience over the head with "CLINT EASTWOOD!", which is what they would need to get the point. You may need to spend some more time listening to music from Sergio Leone flicks to nail the Clint sound.

    Personally, I think the Hearts of Space thing is more reachable with the musical content I hear here. In any case, you need a big musical contrast of some sort within a couple of minutes of the start. My preference would be for some change in sonority and--for me--preferably a change of key.
