Huge thanks to Virgill for the Rhodium soundtrack, which this was obviously inspired by. Also, after hearing the amazing winning 8k from revision, I wanted to see if it was possible to do a breathing sound with Oidos in a 4k. Final shoutouts to all those I talked to at Nordlicht and all those that there wasn't time to get to talk to ;-)

Very nice production, like it alot.
Have to listen louder to it again as I didn´t yet find the breathing sounds, but anyways - the music is ace!

Wow! It has got sensual breathing in 4k! And great to see it got some fonts and all.

Enjoyable geometry and great soundtrack. The lead starting in about the last third of the prod kinda reminds me of the choir pads on the Kawai K4. ;)

youtube lamer vote

the visual style is a bit oldskool-kitchy, i wonder if it's intentional or accidental. if intentional, then it could have been boosted even more

the audio is a bit too bright and cheap-fm-synth-ugly, not very nice to listen to, and wouldn't pass as "real music" without the size handicap pity compensation.

on the positive side, the music has nice melodic and harmonic stuff, and it's in a minor key

Dunno if super but fine anyway.

Really nice, feel like it's a movie.. Audio was great too, super movie tune. A sound make me think to Coloris intro on Amiga, maybe Solina sound, sad and beautifull.

It's actually cheap additive synthesis ;-) And i really appreciate your feedback, Yzi.

I intentionally kept the initial instrument totally free from lower frequencies, to prevent it from crashing with the bass stab, introduced later in the track. I wanted to create brass but it's really difficult with the few parameters available. So I went for strings (which is easy with additive synths) and overused the gain to create distortion to get a bit closer to brass.

With Clinkster and Oidos, there's no way to do mastering besides setting volume of each instrument, so it's always a balance to prevent instruments from being a muddy mess and on the other hand, make sure instruments doesn't get too thin or boring.

It was simply a pleasure to watch this on a big screen. Very cool music matches the nice effects. Congratulations!

Not a fan of breathing sounds/samples in any song, but overall I think it works. Nice effects and sounds. :)

font, direction and 4k-breathing are superfine - only a climax is missing somehow...

Punqtured: yeah it's the missing sense of "mastering" in the sounds. I've only tried Oidos and Clinkster very briefly, but the more I tinker with these mini-synths and even the venerable Roland/Microsoft GS wavetable thingy for 1k intros, the less content I'm with any kind of excuses for sounding bad compared to "real" music, regardless of size constraints. I think that for every synth or other tool there's an artistic sweet spot where it works nicely and doesn't need pity compensation. But you must have the freedom to not have to do things that you can't get to work with the instrument or your skills. And isn't it the same with any instrument or tool or size limitation or other constraint?

Love the progression and look, and the simple text even makes it feel more polished and complete than it already is. Great stuff!
