    Shivaxi - Sun Daze (UT4 Concept Music)

    Making a separate thread this time to get some isolated feedback on this tune (and because everyone kept telling me to make new threads for new tunes...so.. xD)

    Wrote a new track here inspired by CTF-CrashSite, think it works well for this map, so wanted to show the tune being played with the map...now you can watch how horrible I am against bots =P



    But yeah, I wanted something melodic but also with a techy side to it, since you got the crashed spaceship but also the old structure atop these huge mountains, so I think I got what I was looking for.

    Hope you enjoy!

    I may or may not tweak the tune later on, consider this a v1, but I'm pretty happy with it as it is.

    I'll keep updating the main thread here with all my current music for UT4 as well:

    Great stuff as always! It still feels like it would fit well with a night map though

      Yeah I mean I was going more for like a sunrise/sunset, something with the sun (hence track is called Sun Daze) xD but I mean hey up to the Epic guys if they decide to use the track, they can put it wherever they want =P I wouldn't care, I'd just be happy to get a tune in the game ^_^

        This is good stuff Shivaxi, my only complaint is that it could use some more little variations here and there :P

        For instance, the intro part keeps re-using the same ambient elements, you could introduce some variations or additional stuff there, it would raise the quality of the intro overall.

        The drum break build up slightly before 1:50 is pretty great, but I think you should introduce an actual break after it, without drums or with different drums, and with different instruments perhaps, do something funky

        After that you could pick up the main part again, with some additional pads/melodies and other stuff perhaps. You could even introduce some changes to the harmony, because that remained the same throughout the entire song, which is not a sin obviously, but with the more ambient tracks like this one it could use some more variation as well.

        That's just what I think, pretty cool job regardless, wouldn't mind listening to this while fragging

          1.0

          Well another great track to add to my collection

          While I like it as it is, I too, think that it would be even better with some little touches here and there as Archer mention.

          The only thing that I found to not be clear is the techy aspect. The techy sounds are pretty much evasive / not clear enough instead of poping.

          But it's a good track and can only be better

            I like the atmosphere. There isn't much going on, though that can be a good thing but the very distinctive rimshot snare takes too much of my attention to the point that its annyoing. I always feel like your music would fit more in a game like Wipeout, as I don't hear a lot of UT in them. Thats mainly why I haven't been responding to your music. Its good, clear DnB as always, just not for UT IMO.

              Doesn't need much to make it "UT", a clean sine melody with some atmospheric verb and it would fit right in.

                Thanks for all the feedback =) I was thinking about a few changes, but in terms of adding more melody...I did try to do that, and it just felt wrong to me. I like the steady tone of this track, it just flows smoothly and that was something I was going for. I know it won't appeal to all, but I'm happy with it ^^
