The final version of Zero is exclusively released on Inverse Network (formerly Vibrant Network)!
Trying out fully Ambient genre, simple but nice.
Returning to music production!
Two tracks made for a new upcoming album, maybe months later.
Destiny - An ambient electronic track. Original song by myself, and it already has lyrics written by me. Still instrumental, waiting for a chance to record my own vocals.
Ringfinger - A remake of a Nine Inch Nails track, Ringfinger (original track can be listened below the remake). Still instrumental, planned to use my own vocals as well. Quite hard to make because of the need to make everything similar, especially the last part. Also, the electric guitar is quite hard to make, too.
Other 7 songs already has completed lyrics, plus one finished instrumental song.
I suggest you add a harder more bassy kick drum for Destiny as the song progresses, that if you don't want to keep it soft/smooth, somewhat ambient. The same also for the bass/metallic FX.
Well, it seems Nine Inch Nails aren't too bass heavy either, at least in that song.
Zero EP turns 1 year old! It was released last year exactly on this date, November 25.
1. Desert Machine
2. Everything To Say
3. Keep the Pressure
4. Western Journey
I plan to remaster the EP, change some compositions, and add new tracks to it. Stay tuned!
The file was lost, but not anymore! I remade The Future (you might remember my Music Contest #5 entry) from scratch! It's a bit different, it even has a different composition in the bridge part.
This song is about to go somewhere, of course.
New tracks! Two of them are revisited outtakes from Zero EP and one of them is a new track made for vocals in the future.
1. Eastern Journey - This is basically the first one I made before Western Journey, but I ran out of ideas so I didn't include this one in Zero EP. This song is completed (unless you change my mind) and ready to go.
2. I'm Still Beside You - An instrumental currently. Vocal version will come in the future.
3. Proving Ground - Another Zero EP outtake. I still don't know if I get this right but you tell me. Once this one is good enough, it'll be ready to go.
Stay tuned for more!
So this track was started on August 31, 2018. I never made it to the drop, ever, I didn't have any ideas back then. When I started grinding since the anniversary of Zero EP, my ideas kind of sparked out of nowhere, and I opened this track. I tried figuring out how to make the drop, then I thought about distortion.
Honestly, I've never made EDM before, although I've made drops for a couple of Ambient Electronic songs such as Dark Path, Zero, etc. (mostly just for fillers), I can say that the drop in this song beats Zero by a mile.
I also uploaded the track which inspired me to make the drop, by Nine Inch Nails.
So Zero Remastered was originally going to be 9 tracks, but I played around FL and made this thing. This is an Electronic song I made yesterday, and finished just now. I might be getting out of Ambient soon. This is the last song completed for Zero Remastered, and I'll be releasing the whole album at Sunday.
This is it, Zero [Remastered]!
The album is split into three parts; Prelude, Interlude, and Postlude.
So this is my entry for Music Contest #13. My ideas kind of sparked as it started. This will be an exclusive release to "The Escape" single. I feel like the mix is already good.
- That arp at the beginning is something I have never used for a "long time" (only once, this is the second).
- The song is powered by "Gross Beat". The song would've been a joke without it.
- 20% of the time spent are the composition time. 30% are repetitive listening, and the remaining 50%...you know it.
- Transitions from soft to heavy. Every part comes only once, no repetitions. If I do make repetitions, the song would have been 15 minutes long (slow songs = too much ideas. Listen to Zero to know what I mean if you want).
TL;DR - A lot of stuff used.
To celebrate Valentine's Day (which is yesterday), Inverse Network exclusively released one of my latest tracks, To Even The Odds (the current version here is quite clean).
Also, I'm thinking that AditTechno's music career should end (and To Even The Odds MAY be the last track), and that I should create another alias with a different yet relative style to AditTechno. This is just a possibility, though.
What would be the reason for this? If you still want to make music, I mean?
Do you plan to make your real name public as an artist instead?
Congratulations for the upload.
What's with the weird and random anime pictures though?
I don't plan to use my "real" name (I mean, Adit is my irl nickname), but I guess this time I want to practice more and set a new image, it's like I'm starting off already experienced, in contrast to AditTechno which I started (and created SoundCloud) as soon as I started getting my hands on Music Production (And I haven't made Techno in years), but this is just a possibility, though. I still want to make music, but just on another alias if it could be.
Basically found the picture on websites which contained anime pictures.
Ah, it's not the channel's policy? The ones who submit the music also choose such a picture?
Actually it's chosen by the promoter himself.
Ugh. Couldn't be less fitting.
If I would release it myself, I would make my own cover art, though it doesn't look professional, like the Zero [Remastered] cover art.
Here is a clean version of The Escape, quite satisfied with it and now the drop sounds more groovy and the drums are not messy anymore. Along with The Escape is an instrumental track, with lyrics (and melodies) already completed, just waiting to be sung.
So the "The Escape" single is scrapped, but I simply change its concept this time. The working title for the project is called "Alternate Reality". Alternate Reality is like an another dimension to Zero, it asks "what if Zero had a different ending?", and the answer is right in this EP. Below are new tracks for the EP.
Track listing for Alternate Reality:
1. The Escape (The opener. It basically continues the same flow from Zero);
2. The Return (The short, Electronic transition track. It's less than 2 minutes but it's still enough. You can listen to it below);
3. To Even the Odds (A middle, Ambient Electronic track. The EP version is different than the Inverse version because the EP version segues into the next track);
4. Overpass (An Ambient transition track. It starts from the piano from To Even the Odds, and as it goes on, it segues directly into the next track. You can listen to it below);
5. Reside (An Electronic Rock track that serves as the closing track to the EP. I basically find no other candidate other than this track to be a closing track).
The final EP title is not yet thought of (I guess).
