Slopejaw gave feedback to Ray Chmielewski for “Intermission”:
Christmas vibes on this one! I think it would've been incredible if you could've added the same swing you have on the ride cymbal into the lfo you have oscillating on the bass (wubs). I haven't a clue how you'd do it, but it'd be incredible!

The piano sounds great, don't be afraid to get a little creative on it if you can. The entire tune is pretty great, it would really benefit from some drum fills at the end of phrases. Otherwise the beat sounds repetitive and gets boring to listen to. The stabs at the end are luxurious. Well done mate.

Very well done. I'd still like to hear a guitar solo on this one, though....

Arabesque! I like the new sounds, you´re cooking with. Could use a little more polish, but otherwise a great composition, and a decent production. I´d like to hear a slightly cleanber performance.

Thanks a lot,

Very trippy $4¡+, my friends... I´m liking it, but I feel like it could have some more bass to it. Thank you, -Shoham

Very neat little jungle motifs throughout... I like where you're going with this one. Overall, a really nice, balanced smorgasbord of cool concepts.

I feel as if they come together pretty well, especially as an early foray into mixing together your background in Blues and Psychedelic Rock with your new direction into Electronic. Some surf vibes seeping through...??? Awesome! Thank you for sharing!

I'm definitely digging this, man! The main riff reminds me a lot of "Mr. Sandman".

Two artists I'd recommend connecting with are SchizoHead: http://www.feed-forward.net/schizohead and noclass: http://www.feed-forward.net/noclass

Really happy to hear you trying new ideas out!

Thank you,

Rex Yehudi (shoham) gave feedback to Ray Chmielewski for “Down Again”:
I like the composition, but I think that the performance could be a little tighter.

Good start! Looking forward to seeing where you take this next -- maybe combine some AbletonⒸ beats with the live performance?

Thank you,

Good one, Ray. Simple, steady beat. I'd really like to hear a guitar solo on this one especially!

My nephew seems to be especially into this one, jumped up, and insisted on getting a closer look and listen into what was going on! Now he's demanding that I play it again. You're huge with the 18-29 crowd (that's months...)

Thanks man, keep 'em coming,

Done, and done! I guess you're at Bucks college, I bought this track and it said something about that. How is that going? Studying music?

Nah, I dropped out. I was going for psychology and graphic design but I decided it wasn't what I wanted to do. I'd like to go back and study music, but I took out too much in loans that I' still struggling to pay back.

Thanks for buying my music though, I really appreciate it.

Some of the greatest successes OF ALL TIMES are college dropouts -- OF ALL TIMES!!! OK, spend it all on someone else...

Thanks! It's not icicles, there was a patch of thin ice next to my car and I took a picture of it.

Good production, Ray! I'm a big fan of this new direction you've been going in lately. Any plans on incorporating some of your blues into the ambient stuff your doing these days?

The Xylophone part in the middle is my favorite part, I think. Nice rhythm as well.

Really like the tune, thanks for sharing!

Thanks a lot man!

I might add some guitar in at some point, but as for now I'm just going with the virtual instruments.
