Liner Notes: 

A little bit of edm again! It's not entirely enlistenable. Biggrin

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

It feels like a edm storm! Love the beat-good one!

It's always amazes me how fast some folks can turn stuff like this around. This would take me hours!
That main beat is hypnotic.The whole thing feels like a storm as it blows in, stays for a bit, then blows away. And the high notes about 2:30 sound like the wind. Cool. Smile

Oh this is nice! I like how the different sections contrast with each other while still keeping that driving beat going

The wind swirling in the intro sets up the mood and then Pow! Cool groove and melody.

You said EDM and I thought EDM but it was still a surprise when the beat hit. It's a cool one beat and I like the texture you've added. You probably know I'm not the biggest EDM fan/listener. But I genuinely enjoyed listening to this.

Great mix. I love heavy rain and storms.

Oh yeah! Love the driving beat underlying the melody as it builds at just the right pace, just like a driving rainstorm. Well done!

Rhythm of the synth is like raindrops on a roof and the searing lead is like lightning racing through the sky. Well done and wow all this in a skirmish!

I didn't participate in this skirmish but it's a very cool prompt. Very interesting to listen to your composition. It's visual, powerful, dynamic and very expressive. I love the choice of your sounds and the melodies with the chords and melodic lines. I can picture your music in a movie or in a documentary about extreme weather conditions. Also this would work for a movie scene about someone having to go by train, away from someone he or she loved, in a bad weather. In fact your music could work beautifully in different movie scenes as it has so much to offer. Very solid work, skirmish or not.

I really like how you kept the ongoing beat active all through the song and added so much textures and additional synths that it never gets boring. I also really like the arpeggiator at the 1 minute mark! I like most of the sound choices and the varing melodies keeping the song alive as it can be. Nice minimal, but effective work - very atmospheric and the title totally fits! It's somewhat heavy and also the atmospheric sounds somehow sound "weathery". All in all the song reminded me a bit of Jean-Michel Jarre Smile

Also: Your production sounds really massive!

Oh, fantastic skirmish prompt and love what you've done with it. That driving beat drenches that thought right around me. I always can see scenes for movies and games when I listen to your music... always. It felt like this storm was definitely more in warmer weather, in the night and I'm forever searching for a safe place to go inside, but I'm not finding it, but I continue to plod on and then finally, I find it when the music comes to a halt. Awesome stuff!!

Very, well done, turned this around in an hour, that's impressive. Do you have some templates set-up to just dive in on something like this? Awesome sound selections, what type of synths are you employing? sorry, asking more questions than actually commenting.
