Cool Suffering For Your Love

this is a song I just started producing for a talented girl in new york city. Shes a great writer, very poetic and intense. She wrote to the chord progression when i met up with her in miami. The vocals havent been tracked yet, but shes great and i cant wait to get this wrapped up.

remember this is a work in progress not a finished track lol

Isn't that progression a sample from soundtrack??? If not, sorry. Just sounds a bit too familiar.

Triple Redundancy

This track sounds interesting because of the nice sounding almost jazz like piano. The drums come in and that sounds pretty interesting initially as well. The main problem is these sampled loops become very redundant as they play for so long. The first sound that hit my ears that I didn’t like was the stand up bass. It sounds rather generic and unprofessional. After awhile the whole mix just gets very tiresome. It will help to have vocals but that won’t solve all of the problems I’ve indicated. Also, at the end of the song the organ is outside, way outside and in a very unpleasant way. There are ways to create stress and tension without causing people to stop listening… Sorry, again initially I thought it had a lot of potential…

That song title strikes a chilling resemblance to a Whitesnake song . ok, just kidding (that was my first impression)

I like the piano, I cannot stand that crackling stuff going on. the timpani are way cool tho. thumbsup

Actually, now that i listen, alot of the samples are from soundtrack. The drums and timpani are questionable though. They may be seperate samples, maybe not.

the piano samples are two licks combined from soundtrack and the crackly drums, thats what the songwriter came in with. Everything else is programmed. I dont see what the big deal is about using a soundtrack piano loop. Portishead etc. sample directly from old isaac hayes songs etc. Anyhow, I agree about the organ, just needs to be placed back abit.

I think vocals will break things up a bit.
