Hi guys, I would love to get some opinions on this track. How is it technically and commercially? I haven’t uploaded it on AJ yet. Thanks!
Hm… To my mind it is very specific for AJ… Some pentatonic melodies in synth leads remind me Dream Theather
For my ears it’s stylish and pleasant. Not sure about commercial usability though: it sounds having much east-coast taste and much of “late 70ths art-rock” elevator stylisation the same time. Because of scales and synths’ timbres. Very specific, I agree.
Cool track! I think it sounds good production wise, except that to me the first gong hit is a bit loud.
Regarding commercial value I have no idea, but I see no reason this track couldnt be used in traveling videos and documentaries. Good luck!
Thanks for the feedback. I wasn’t thinking prog rock when I made it, but I do like bands like Dream Theatre. It’s actually inspired by a video game composer called Alexander Brandon. It is a self indulgent track, but I can imagine it working in travel projects. I might change the name of the track to something like “Inspiring Asian Adventure.” I guess it only goes part way to being Asian style though, it doesn’t completely commit. I know that being such a mashup of styles isn’t very good for stock music.
Well guys this track got rejected. I guess they don’t like genre-merging progressive nonsense. On a lighter note I sent the track to Alexander Brandon, the games composer who I was inspired by to make it, and he was into it. He said it reminded him of 90s Tangerine Dream, so I’ll have to check out some of that.
