Unfinished Business

By Ashtom on November 15, 2020 10:47 pm

I wasn't very much inspired today and this is the result of a layer-by-layer jam. I wanted to make something unsettling and mysterious but also with that touch of nostalgia that can be found. I guess it's a mixed influence between Boards of Canada and me binge-watching Agatha Christie's Poirot TV episodes with my partner.
Anyway, thanks for listening and for the encouraging comments you have left me, it really means a lot to have some feedback (especially when it's positive).
Have a nice week!

Really enjoyed this. I like the flow of it and the choice of sounds; there's a lot of interesting variation happening so the track always feels like it's going somewhere.

I like how it builds and crests with some different interesting textures coming into play.  It has a nice energy but is also kind of relaxing.

You got some nice layers here, a wonderful synth over a lovely drum. Definitely has that unsettling vibe that feels like proper cyberpunk.

The textures are sick and that bass is amazing.

Thanks, I always try to care about the build like I'm telling a story by exposing the elements in the right pace and order.

Thank you! I wasn't really convinced with the drums at first but you convinced me to appreciate them a bit more. I didn't think about the cyberpunk vibe but I guess you are right. Thanks for pointing that out!

Thank you! I almost discarded the bass at some point and then, with the proper layers with it, I realized it really fit.
