I went to listen to some of the music while reading this post, but the music isn't there. It shows the site (which looks sweet, by the way) but it shows is this message: "Sorry, the page you were looking for in this blog does not exist." Sad face. Fix this so I may critique you, please I lied. It works now. I'll edit this post with critiques in a bit
Alrighty, post time! It's late, so I only gave one of your pieces a good and solid listen. "Unforgiving Sands." The piece certainly fits the title,it's vibe being very desert like. The stringed instrument in the background (can't remember what it's called) and the vibraphone seem to cause some oddness between each other notewise, not exactly feeling right. I'm not sure if you did that on purpose to add weirdness or dissonance to it or some such thing. I really liked the percussion in it as well, the constant beat ensuring consistent drive throughout the piece.
Expect to hear from me again sooner or later, good work!
Unforgiving Sands, one of my older comps.
This song was meant for a game that later got canceled (not my game, somebody else's). My focus on this song was the feeling of being uncomfortably hot, thristy, sweaty all of that followed by insect bites. xD
The sitar and vib-phone can sound pretty odd together, with the sitar being an odd sounding sob already. Sitars to me always give a feeling of relentlessness, it sounds odd, but also aggressive and on a personal level, it reminds of being bitten by insects.
In short, yes I meant it to sound a bit unpleasant, I dunno if I over did it.
By the way, since you ended up listening to an older song and from what you said about the page not being found... do the links in this thread not work? Just wondering, I hope they do... D:

Wow, I just went and listened to quite a few of the songs you have on your site.
You're quite brilliant! O_O
I loved many remixes that I recognised from past games and such, lots of really great pieces there. ^^
I also noticed a few 1980's songs (like "Take On Me") that you did, and I grew up on 80s music because that's all my parents ever listened to until recently, lol.
I love it though, and not just because I grew up on it.
Anyway, after listening to a few others, I'm quite confident that you're an excellent "amateur" as you say.
Keep doing these, you're great and I want to hear more!
Aw thank you for also taking the time to listen to the remixes. I am constantly adding new remixes, since I have a youtube where I make game music remixes from classics. This
is my tube if interested.
Glad you love 80's classics, I love a lot of music from the 80's, crazy era with great music and odd hairdos!
Very glad to know you want hear more and liked my work. I will update this post with more.
