Had a weird dream about Orca whales flying above the Earth and wrote this song about it. Song itself is a few months old but using my newly acquired Absynth 5 I was able to add what was missing. Strings aren't completely finished, but I will be without internet for a bit so I wanted to upload it, 95% finished so mostly everything is in its place.



Also the rhythm guitar near the end is the hardest rhythm I've had to record because of the 5 string sweep fills, so a few times it is a tad bit sloppy (Strings ring out). But hey, its good enough for me for now.

Hey Unc,

Great playing as always. Lots of good ideas and well done overall!

There are two spots that to my hearing appear disconnected. This might be part of the 5% you indicate is not yet there.

At 0:26-0:28 the intro fades out and the riff starts. I would suggest doing either of two things. (1) earlier on, hit some big power chords and let them ring out, fade the volume in on the chords with maybe some feedback and then hit the riff. That would give a textural/tonal connection between intro and riff. Or (2) instead of fading out the intro, either give it a cinematic rise effect building into the riff or stop the intro hard, pause for a beat or half-a-bar then hit the riff hard.

Then at 4:28 it actually has the feel of one song stopping and the next starting. I don't know if that's what you intended. If so, fine, you've achieved that, otherwise, it needs connecting a bit more clearly. A good way to do that would be start the big percussion a lot earlier and slowly increase the volume so that it's at the appropriate level by 4:29. Or start it earlier use a lo-pass filter and slowly increase the high freqs until its back to normal by 4:29. Or any number of other possibilities would work. But as it is, there is a real feeling of disconnection.

I know you said it's not finished yet so take or leave this FWIW. I'd just love to see a good song even better. :-)

All those spots you mentioned is pretty much where I still have some stuff to work on, Only had A5 for like three days but I figure if I post it even if it is unfinished I could get some ideas on how to tweak it while I'm out.

Very cool stuff! Absynth is really cool. The entire KOMPLETE suite is pretty darn spiff. Keep it up! Can't wait to hear more.
