Hello PlanetMineCraft,
I have recently become interested in producing EDM music.
I would appreciate it if you would check it out and listen to it on SoundCloud: https://soundcloud.com/user-824763361
Or YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQRM470nobkbjTQ3FFyYG1Q
If anyone needs to contact me for any reason (suggestions, collabs, problems etc.) : [email protected]
I would really love if you checked out my music and helped me grow!
Thanks,

Everything sounds quite literally like you've never heard anything outside the EDM spectrum of the 2000s-2010s. Not even the ambient sounds right. Listen to some more music, preferably starting at the begging of the genre.

Also can we please stop writing off every bit of criticism and negative opinion as "being rude"? No one has to like what you like.

Yawn. Seriously, promoting your cheesy, edgy music on a minecraft website?

All right, I listened to all of them for quite a bit and this is just my opinion, it's chaotic, and not in the good way like genres of Dupstep. I get it, you are just starting out, don't have the best software, and haven't been doing this long, been there done that, but your music doesn't have any harmony to it. There is no rhythm to it, which is why it comes off very bland and unappealing to the ears. Harmony and Rhythm is very important in all music, makes sure that sounds actually work together, fit with the song, and line up properly to give that Rhythm. You really need to learn this before creating music, because without it, it just doesn't come out very well. So, I suggest going and learning some things about harmony and rhythm in music and make a new track with everything you've learned and then make a new post, because once you do, I'm sure the feedback will be a lot better.

Everyone's being pretty harsh, but I'm not gonna lie, it's far better than anything I could create. Well done.

By the way, what did you use to create it?

Coming from a Music GCSE student, this is just crap, samples thrown in at different times it's really dire, it would suggest not using Audacity to make music, use something like Cubase, or FL Studio.

I do not use Audacity. I made a new track which I fixed most of my previous errors, but it is private.

People are being rude I'm sorry about that! "Good" music is subjective and these aren't my normal type but you have a really cool style going! I am listening to plasma right now and I like it. I would recommend making sure the songs have a definite beginning, middle, and end. But most importantly keep creating and practicing!!! Good luck.

"SLembas"This is not music. It's just a bunch of random notes and noises. Sorry.

Umm... That's not really sorry. What kind of music do you listen to say this isn't music. If you think it's random, how do videos of random dog barking songs get popular.

Guys, if you feel that my music is not great quality, I have reasons I hope you can understand.
1. I'm running on a free software (I can't buy a paid one).
2. To get a paid one, I need a fanbase who I know will support my music.
3. I barely have experience in this, I'm still learning.
4. I do not do this fulltime.
5. I don't pay for better plans or to be advertised.
There are reasons I can't use money for better software and promotions, so don't tell me to buy something.

Dude, I totally understand. I wasn't complaining before (if that is what you perceived it as). I completely get that you need support and stuff, and that you are just starting out. Heck, the least recent song you posted was just over a week ago. I'll follow you on Soundcloud and cheer you on, man.

No, I am talking about others, or future commenters. In fact, thanks for the reviews to each song. Now I can know what people liked and didn't like. I still have like 5 more songs that need the finishing edit. I will repost Island, I actually rushed it without editing (a horrible thing to do).

"Karrthus"anything can be music


Music is a combination of sounds, with a view to beauty of form and expression of emotion.

"SLembas"This is not music.


thats actually incorrect, anything can be music

music
ˈmjuːzɪk/
noun
1.
vocal or instrumental sounds (or both) combined in such a way as to produce beauty of form, harmony, and expression of emotion.


seeing as everyone interprets these things differently from where some people hear noise, others hear music, so it is impossible to label any sound as "not music" because someone might interpret it as

This is not music. It's just a bunch of random notes and noises. Sorry. You should practice a lot. Try to remake some popular tracks, or just use them as an example of how to create a nice, harmonic chord progression. And I really want you to not use Audacity for creating music. There are some great DAWs for that, like Ableton Live, or FL Studio. They will make your life a lot easier.

If the Audacity thing was about what I said, I only meant to remove the silence at the end of that one song. I wouldn't have suggested anyone use Audacity for MAKING music, only editing.

My personal review of your music:

Strings: You started well, the middle was a tad erratic, but you finished not to bad. 7/10
Islands: This one sounds like a person trying to play piano, but hitting the keys out of time. 3/10
Spatial: Like the stuff! Can't find anything else to say about this one. 10/10
Nitrogenic: Same with Spatial, except the 20 or so seconds of silence at the end seems unnecessary. 9/10
Plasma: This song just doesn't work. It sounds kinda like you are just looping the same thing, but gradually speeding it up. If this was your first song, I can definitely tell. 1/10

You have potential, but I think you need to find your strengths before you get your hopes up about making it big.

I thought the first one had a bit of good in it; but it was mostly bland and boring; where the buildup I thought was supposed to be it stopped.
