CHESHYRE - Expression
Greetings fellas, it's been ages since I've posted here.

Been a long road, dealing with the ruckus of the industry and licensing songs to companies who take as much as they can from the contract.

But nontheless, I've decided to become a solo act and work on my own image.

https://soundcloud.com/aicheshyre/cheshyre-expression

Expression is a 7 minute "symphonic-electronic" track.

This was going to be released officially by a label, but issues with production and delays from the label have forced me to release this independently.

Hope you enjoy, and feel free to leave constructive criticism, or just say whether you liked it or not.


DISCLAIMER - There is a mixing issue that I was unable to sort out around 3:54 that you may/my not be able to hear. I hope it does not deter your enjoyment of the track

Song created with FL Studios 11, cover art created with Cinema 4D

Can't imagine how much time this took to master considering the amount of layers and different synths.

Also the cover art is fueg man, compliments the song well.

Not bad, not bad at all, I really enjoyed the the tempo change, it was well timed, the track in general reminds me a lot of nero, I also believe you used kontakt for the orchestral bits? I can tell (even with my shitty phone speakers) that the mastering is great, the kick, I'm not sure but I don't like it, I belive it's too short for my taste (atleast in the beginning, sounds better with the more upbeat tempo), it's very punchy tho, the clap have a lot of whitenoise, works well with the track tho. It's not overpowering. The vocals/choir (?) Is well mixed.
I do enjoy the track even tho it's nothing I'd probably listen to, well done

Hey bibb, glad you liked it.

The intro is made entirely with East/West Symphonic Orchestra instruments. I messed with each individual notes velocity and automated the expression (hence the name of the song) to create that lifelike feel.

Expression contains roughly 307 individual patterns.

Hey xXSJXx, the orchestra was created with East/West Symphonic Orchestra. You are indeed right about the kick, I had a difficult time layering one that I felt fit the slow mood of the first half and the powerful second half without having to use two kicks. Thus I ended up with a more punchy, sharp kick.

Thanks Ancient, glad you liked it m8

I've always taken a lot of inspiration from film and try to add a cinematic feel to my tracks.

Glad fellas are liking it, I'll be sure to post more.
