Description : So, I’ve been working on a new track. After my last song “The Moments That Take Your Breath Away”, I was filled with a sense of overwhelming pressure to live up to, and even exceed the expectations I held myself to. This led to a pretty bad creative block I’m slowly but surely working myself out of. That is what this song is going to be about: me coming to terms with my own expectations and breaking free from my creative block.

The song itself is still very rough. I used an orchestral soundfont (big thanks to @GregVincey for pointing me in that direction) for the intro to give it an epic feel. For the most part, it’s going to be cinematic, telling a story. I imagine it dropping into experimental future bass; something different. I’ll also be looking forward to having a singer with a strong voice to really nail the intensity and emotion, but I’d rather finish the track first before going down that route.

I’m looking forward to some constructive criticism.

*Please note: This is only a preview of the song, because it’s really not done yet. I’ve had many variations of how this song should be like, but none I was particularly proud of. There’s more info in the description about the meaning behind the track and info on the track itself*

wow, the build is great. it gave me chills. not to many songs do that. only when there is an emotional power behind it. love to hear the rest when it comes out.

Thanks! Glad you like it. Like I mentioned in other replies it'll definitely get finished, but it will take time. I'll do my best to keep emotions high throughout the song.

OK, this is sounding really promising. You MUST continue with it. I really like the orchestral treatment and it has very interesting transitions. Keeps the listeners' interest. I have no idea what "future bass" is, so am going to do some research. I can never keep all the genres straight, but I know what I like and I like this a lot.
sheensheep replied 16th Jun 2017 - 6 years ago
I'll definitely get the song completed, but it will take a while.

Hopefully by now you've learnt what future bass is, now that it has become more popular. It's basically more melodic trap, but it's just a broad definition. Music over genre.

This sounds really nice to me and now I wish to hear the final result..:) I hope you will continue to have alot of good fun working on this one ! Bottom line...thumbs up !:)

sheensheep replied 15th Jun 2017 - 6 years ago
This is probably the toughest song I'm working on finishing right now, so it's not going to be all fun Haha. Though I'm really curious how it will sound in the end myself.

Thanks! Though I plan on making this a long epic.

Wow okay I loved that.
That build was something to be proud of. I feel like that right off the bat you could drop into future bass and it would sound wonderful.
I'll be impressed whatever you wind up doing.

Stick with it and push through!
sheensheep replied 4th Sep 2016 - 7 years ago
Thanks I'm really glad you liked it. I thought of dropping it right off the bat after the orchestral intro, but I wanted to experiment with contrasting dynamics and not just loud all the way. I've still got a lot of work to do Haha Thanks for the comment.

Hey Sheen,

Nice preview! The gentle 'ping pongs' at 0:40 had my attention in this piece and could lead to a nice part after that buildup! I love the fact you fuse styles together with 'no fear'. Really seeking your own style and desire (for this track) instead of mainstream and the simple ways out. I respect that.

I do totally understand the 'expectations towards yourself issue'. I haven't got any full tracks released here on Looperman yet but there's a lot going on behind the curtains here and as addition, my perfectionism sometimes just blocks things up.. lol

Tiny feedback thingy:
Knowing its a preview and work in progress, so please forgive me in that.
For me, the 0:35 transition is a bit out of the blue.

I'm fully confident that it will turn out as something beautiful so keep it up!

sheensheep replied 4th Sep 2016 - 7 years ago
The whole idea of posting it before it was done was to get as much feedback as possible so no need to be forgiven. I welcome all kinds of criticism. Especially when it comes to finding my own style.

I'll work on the transition, and make it sound as smooth as possible.

And yeah, I understand what you mean. There's always a part of me that strives for perfection, and it can be extremely discouraging. I have around a 100 projects that are either incomplete or complete but will never see the light of day because I'm not proud of it. But being in a community like looperman helps because of all the support an all the knowledge I can get from people here.

I think I'm ranting so I'll end it here Haha

Sounds like the making of another amazing track! Really looking forward to the full version. I love the idea of an orchestral type beginning leading into future bass. Keep up the great work!
sheensheep replied 3rd Sep 2016 - 7 years ago
Thanks I'm really glad you liked it. I took inspiration from Flume's Helix, but I'm working on my own style. Thanks for the support.

BLEEP 3rd Sep 2016 14:20 -  7 years ago
i prefer the second part. This track will walk very well with a trip hop beat. What kind of style will you choose for your definitive version?
i don't know words to describe what i feel wrong in the first part... if you really want i can tell you in french :)
sheensheep replied 3rd Sep 2016 - 7 years ago
The final style is going to ride the line between experimental future bass and trap.
And please do. I speak French too Haha
