This rejection was as HARD as it gets and I’m left wondering why?
I thought you could point out any mistakes I made - be it compositional, mixing, whatever.
I’ve uploaded the preview to soundcloud for you to have a listen.
Thank you all,
Have a great day!
Cool track! But usually tracks with dissonances do not get approved on AJ. For instance at 0:19~0:20, that right there could cause a rejection. There are some more throughout the track.
Thanks for a quick response!
Thats what I originally thought - ‘this dissonant part could be the cause of rejection’, but then I thought “but it’s jazz! right?”
Thanks so much for your input @PurpleFogSound
Wow, I love your music, I love jazz and your style! You have good technique with fingers !!
Just I will give my opinion:
Sometimes you use some dissonance (0:19-20) … it sounds a little bit strange and it’s abruptly interrumped … you also are giving a lot of protagonism to solos and you only use two chords. Maybe they are expecting more from development in the harmonic progressions and a simplification of the melodic motif.
It’s just an idea, trying to help.
Greetings and good luck with future approvals and sales!
Again, sorry for my english.
Yes very true. This would have to be addressed as well before reuploading.
It’s jazz. The dissonances are the norm for this style. look for tracks in this genre and find out used dissonance in them or not. somewhere on Aj I heard the dissonance in the music but I don’t remember specifically …
