Angelic Propagation

Recommended Posts

This is a track from an album I'm creating which outlines the discovery of gravity waves from last year or whenever they were discovered. This track was meant to follow the idea of gravity waves propagating on their journey through space and all of its wonders towards Earth. Let me know what you think and feedback would be cool too :)

Pretty good! I would be wary of how often you're repeating the same progression. Because your high E can be chord-shifted to match so many different types of chords, it would be awesome to experiment with that. Ending in D major was kind of strange. Not bad by any means, but it doesn't really provide closure, either.
I get it's angelic and everything, but the constant use of soprano tones is kind of tiresome after a while, the buildup to the climax was quite short and the climax itself wasn't huge either, so more diversity in how the structure of the piece is built on would be nice.

Cool idea, I'm also super interested in that stuff--took three physics courses in college, two of which delved into astro-physics!

If you haven't yet, I'd recommend looking into star sounds and other recorded space "noises"--some of them show promise for use in music.

About your composition, good atmosphere. Your harmony and development are good, although it is heavy in the soprano area. Think about how you can use some simple bass tones to "ground" your upper voices--it could even be as simple as a sustained tone that spans several chord changes, like a pedal tone on the organ. Check out Hans Zimmer's Interstellar soundtrack for an idea of what I'm talking about.

Cool work!
