This is an entry for the Strike up the Band "contest" or whatever it is. :P Comments and constructive criticism are always appreciated.

Nice! It really breathes. My favorite part is around 2:40, where it gets a little more upbeat. I like how the overal volume is so smooth and still naturally shaped, how did you do that?

Download? :(

 

Apart from the depressing reality of a missing download button, this piece is quite awesome. I would say it fits the Metru Nui setting better though, due to its mechanical vibe, but it sounds nice nevertheless.

Thanks! I used compressors to keep the volume smooth, keep the sound from clipping and boost the volume, all of which while keeping most of the quality.

:P Well, at some point I may put it up for sale. 

 

Thanks! Maybe it should have a Metru Nui setting. I don't know. :shrugs: I naturally thought of Onu-Koro for some reason. :lol: Thanks again!

Great job on the track! Really captivates the beautiful caverns of Onu-Koro and Onu-Wahi while perfectly adding elements of electronic dance into the mix. Good luck on the contest!

So it is compressed after all. Thanks :) You're pretty good at it.

A friend of mine generally helps me edit and master my pieces, so there's actually a new version of the piece uploaded now.

Not was I was expecting from the title, but this totally works! The piece is awesome. I never would have thought of using house for BIONICLE, but it works!

Wow... just listened to this today. It's really good; professional quality, I'd say. Like others have mentioned, it doesn't really bring to mind Onu-Koro, but IMO, I doesn't really quite fit with Onu-Metru either. It's kind of a sad, meditative song, in a way; maybe Voya Nui?

I dunno. Anyway, well done. Really splendid job.

This is a really crisp piece you've composed, Reznas. It's mastered pretty well. I'm also not sure how many would have thought to use trance for an Onu-Koro theme, so that makes your work stand out. Good job!

Thanks! I'm not sure about whether it would fit Voya Nui. Maybe? I tried to get kind of a dark feeling as if one were walking deep into the earth, and then the middle section kind of represents the beauty underneath.

 

Thanks again! :D

Thanks! I try to master stuff as professionally as possible, so it's a real compliment to hear that. Well, it's always my hope to make my music stand out, so I guess it worked. :)

I really, really love the chord progression, especially starting at around 00:57. You've also created a great impression of space.

If there's something I would suggest, it would be to bring out the quivering kinds of sounds in the background starting at around 1:22. I can appreciate the subtlety, but in this case it just sounds too good. : P

Related to the chord progression, I actually just randomly started playing it on the piano one day, and thus came this piece. :P I tried to make it sound pretty eerie. Guess it worked. =3

 

Yeah, the Trance bass is kind of quiet. I didn't want it overly emphasized, but it does seem kind of subtle.

 

Thanks!
