Misericordia

By Tone Matrix on June 28, 2020 4:57 pm

Kind of hit a dead end this week with my motivation.  I guess that's expected at the halfway point.  So here's another quiet sorta thang.  I know I could definitely improve this a bit and not have it so sound familiar or boring.  Sorry for not being so wordy with the descriptions lately.  Things will pick up eventually... hopefully.  Thanks for listening tongue

Awesome man, very well crafted as usual.  The transition at 2:20 when the piano and the muted guitar(?) comes in is super cool.  It sounds like a whole feel change even though its just adding a few elements.

I like the mood it creates and it does evolve considerably during its runtime.

Thanks man!  The muted guitar sound is actually the Strings being played Col Legno.  Which even tho I know how it sounds I still had to google it again lol.  Basically its when they hit the strings with the back of the bow.  So it gives it that nice percussive touch smile

There always next week. Although this week's pretty intense with beautiful motions.

This is beautiful. This is the sort of stuff I'd like to make even when I /am/ motivated. The subtlety in the piano melody really gives it a stronger voice, I feel. That's something I think I can learn from. smile

Beautiful textures! I like the melancholic atmoshphere of the track and nice choice of string synths.

Great stuff, like the galloping/sloshing subtle drip drop beat in the background, synth work sounds fantastic, I think this is a lot better then you may have felt about it.  Interestingly Misericordia is the name of the hospital I was born in, had to look up the actual definition, kind of dark name for a hospital.

You're still creating atmospheres with only an instrument or two. You know how to use the tools you have and get the most out of them. I'm still trying to learn how to improve on that aspect of my sounds and arrangements.

No need for wordy descriptions.  Look at mine!  haha.
Nothing wrong with this track either.  Quite lovely actually!

Beautiful track. Truly, a quick effort with a slow and moody piece like this so often leads to a bit of magic. Very filmic.
