And this movie is called?

Sound and Fury, looks like, which is also the name of the album: https://www.netflix.com/title/81171121

Seems like an extended music video, kind of? Similar to the Daft Punk thing. I'm diggin' the music, honestly, and I think I'll check out the movie.

When googling it I also found this:


This fuckin' timeline

Probably for the best, the movie was apparently originally titled "Red State vs Blue State" and is about wealthy (liberal) elites hunting poor working-class (conservative) people for sport, and the latter heroically defending themselves with their god-given arms.

I made a song: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1n...Wt_szamv6425CLl

It's my first. Be gentle. (I could use EQ help tho.)

this def has potential. kudos on your first song, that's killer!

critique:
that drum roll/fill thing you do on transitions is over-used. try some different fills to add variety, or no drumfill at all and use another instrument to transition- some midnight jams incorporate that well. also the piano lines during the pauses could use some increased complexity to make it more interesting

praise:
you have the basics down well and the song overall is well put together minus the above comments. work on the EQ and add some dynamic poo poo to keep it from becoming too "droney"

Thanks! I've progressed a bit since I made that one and am currently deep in trying to learn about sound design, layering, and eq so I can get my mixes sounding better. I've got another song I like even better, but I'm not ready to share it yet.

If we're just sharing our favorite songs, I'm completely obsessed with this one, from an Australian guy named Beau McKee/DELOS:

DELOS - Trace Decay

Sadly as far as I can tell he's only made those 4 synthwave songs :/

A few others that are real good:

ZETA - The Distance

Color Theory - Phobiac

I made another song - I'm finding I lean more towards dreamy chillwave than outrun: https://soundcloud.com/rottenredrod...t-2-wip/s-Vh4uG

This one is much closer to complete than the first one I posted (which I may go back at some point and remaster now that I have a better idea of what I'm doing). Still tweaking it, particularly the automation and EQing for different speakers (I need some studio monitors soon...) but I'm real happy with how it's come out so far.

Today, courtesy of my Spotify Discover Weekly playlist, I discovered that "JBPWAVE", or Vaporwave/Lo-Fi-Hiphop featuring remixes of Jordan Peterson talks, is a thing. And completely earnest.

what even is reality

Hello, I got the music bug again after a few months of (song)writers' block, and made a few new synthwavey tracks! These are all in various states of completion and polish, but I'm super proud of them regardless, so please enjoy. Posted in order of quality (in my opinion):
