This is really a different thing, it sounds like a soundscape work. Very interesting.
If the objective is to be spooky and to scare I think it did work great on me haha. I'm not a big fan of horror games but can totally imagine this track being used in a game like that.
Hey this is nice solid work for just a scratch. Nice choice of synths here, the bass entrance at the very beginning was great, loved the "guitarish" tone more at the end (pehaps a combination of dist, chorus and delay maybe?) fits perfectly.
I can imagine neon lights, tech machinery, human-like androids and a whole dystopian cyberpunk vibe here.
The low brass staccato is my favorite element of this track, most because is just so tense and powerful.
Also liked when the strings reinforces the bass line more at the end. The emulation of steam noises adds for sure a very creative touch.
The harmonic cadence makes me feel like you're visiting a dangerous place and should runaway but at the same time the melody with flute/woodwinds along with strings are making you stay.
This is really a great of example of how to do a true great BGM: guitar, bass, percussion and "ambience", all elements fit together in their places in a fine balance without standing too much and claiming attention from "the player". This track can fit so many situations but personally, listening to this, I can totally see a hidden grayish underground facility being stealth invaded.
Greetings & Next Theme:
Thanks everyone for the listening, the feedback time is for sure the most funny part of the contest. Obsession_Dragon hits the bull's eye about what I was thinking while doing the track haha got really impressed.
As a suggestion for the next theme: Oriental stuff like traditional Chinese/Japanese music overall its my call. I mean you could make something from the range of an AAA game like Sekiro soundtrack to Yie-Ar Kung Fu from NES or/and just challenge people to only use an asian scale.
