Hi GMC,

I'm helping my brother to spread his music. He has been doing music with computer software for some half a year now and he's developing all the time. If you like it even a bit, I encourage you to spread it, too. biggrin.gif

He publishes stuff mainly in Soundcloud.com and Youtube under the nickname Evil Kitten. smile.gif

Yeah, well, my brother is very fond of weird sounds and ideas. biggrin.gif Of course he's not even close to becoming perfect yet and this type of music is really "underground". Thanks for your comment anyway.

I found it interestingly cool - something like that would go well in a movie background
during an intense scene I think. For Music maybe more frequent change ups at certain
points along with the repetitive melody on occasion might liven it up a bit. He definitely
has his own style and it is worth pursuing. cool.gif

I like electronic music, and I think this is nicely composed. I think more work can be done tho, the track lacks a bit of fluidness at some points, although it is dubstep. Bass needs more work, and the panning sounds dizzy often. Perhaps a more gentle pan sweep would do it nicely. I think it is better to insert some panning pads then bass, and let the bass serve the rhythmic function a bi better. The track is cool, and full of great ideas, but I think it lacks structure. A more structurized track with some clear sections would be nice to hear. say hello to your brother, it's a cool music! smile.gif

I think its cool, im really into dub step atm, and its really cool in club situations!
i like it, but i agree with ivan, the transistions could need some work to make it flow better, and yeah in the beginning the panning is a is a bit over the top

My brudda thanks you all, especially Mr. Milenkovich for your feedback! smile.gif Meanwhile he has been working on these:

http://soundcloud.com/evilkitten/evil-kitten-fattest-sound

http://soundcloud.com/evilkitten/evil-kitten-headtrip

These have been done before he had a chance for your feedback, so they have some of the same faults his earlier "songs" did.

It's ok and there is some interesting bits going on but generally I'd agree with Ivan here. I'd also add that I'd like more musical dynamics in the track generally - perhaps more use of automated levels during the mixing. A lack of structure doesn't worry me much here but without it he needs something that will hold and maintain interest more - Autechre are very good at this.

I like the synthesis, the noises are surprising,

but I agree that its randomness tends to be too much and the listener tends to lose it

damn radio, it has our brains programmed
