So who runs the power plant?
Now, this is beyond words. Admittedly, some parts were rather corny and cliché, overall it was awesome, from the intense fight scenes to when the rings from all over the planet started fravitating towards Shadic, to everybody looking for the ultimate outcome. Hyper Knuckles and Super Tails were a good bonus, although it would have been cool to see them do more. Seeing Nazo beaten up by Flickie birds would be hilarious. But, as I've said, this is awesome! Rock on, man,!
Stick it in a bun.
By the way, were you able to decide which seat to take at the table?
I wish I could improvise
You're very good at this, especially if this is improvisation. The only thing I found lacking was a stronger contrast within the piece; after a while of having similar styles/textures, it was starting to get a bit uninteresting. Otherwise, I really like the variations in the melody, the not-excessive tempo alteration, and the harmonies and left hand.
Lot of potential
I like your contrast when you introduced the (sawtooth?) melody and then reintroduced the semiquavers and used other background instruments and lines.
I also like your use of sound distortion effects; you put them in the right places and didn't overuse them.
The loop itself gives off a good, happy vibe. I think that it could be more, though. The thing I think is holding it back is the octave bass you introduce at the beginning and which stays through the piece. To me, it's just too much; it's far too overpowering, and I don't think it really fits in well with the piece. Maybe if you got rid of it or greatly diminished it, and made the piece a bit more upbeat, the piece could have a far more enhanced effect.
Also, the strings near the end of the loop (those are strings, right?) create a dissonance that doesn't fit well with the rest of the piece; you made them play up to the leading tone, which was played quickly and did not resolve to the tonic. I don't think that fits in well with the piece; if it were me, I would have made them either resolve, or not have them go far enough to reach that measure that has them on the leading tone.
Just my thoughts, anyway. I liked the piece overall; I'm just saying the other things in case you wanted any input.
Yeah, I wasn't too too sure about the bass... And no, those were not strings, it was a distorted choir and I started thinking "Oh that doesn't really go..." until after I uploaded it... But yeah, I will be fixing it up. Thank you!
