There are tons of hosts better than sitesled, maybe not space-wise but in reliability.

Was that a joke? They may be up a lot of the time, but you can't get enough space or bandwidth without paying. Who wants to pay on a site called FREEwebs?

Could you expand on that a little? Which ones? I thought Broken Attack was pretty good, being recent and all...

They're all a bit repetitive, but overall they'd probably make good backround music.

Ok, those tunes are WAY too random, both in tone height and note distance. Then that random piece repeats and repeats. Not only that, but there are some unfitting/not very good sounding instruments/samples used. There are also practically no instruments playing in the background, so you don't have anything accompanying(?) the music.

This counts for all the songs. Not good.

Too random? I'd imagine music I make reflecting something about myself. Damn. And the first four tunes weren't intentionally made as game music, more like regular music, so they're quite different from most game MODs. I'm quite confused since I hear the songs are too random yet too repetitive, and I don't know how that works out. And most of the samples are taken from actual songs, though only when the specific sound is isolated.

Is "that random piece" Gaiasword? I'm definitely remaking that one since I liked the MIDI (gasp) better, so I'm suiting it to fit that sound more, which is much better and less annoying. I really wanted to use that Spoon sample, that's all.

With random yet repetitive I mean this: you play a riff. That riff contains some pretty random notes. And like riffs are, they repeat. So yeah.

But yeah, I said this kinda counts for all of the songs, sorry to say.

Well, they are not that bad.
Some are way too repetitive, but some are pretty good.

I like 'Ice on The Shore' the most.

They still loop to much.

About On The Shore: if you're gonna loop stuff, you'll at least need a varying melody with it, or variations in the loop itself. Also, that melody is very off-tone and dissonant.

About The Full Silence: the piano intro sound is pretty good, but gets cut off too fast (try letting the piano finish fully). The drums part is too long, without much interesting happening at all.
The piano coming with the drums makes the whole thing sound, um, weird, and there's no other accompanying again (other than the drums).

Try using chords, but not dissonant ones. I suggest you start with C Major (or minor if you like the 'sad' sound more).

I was only half-expecting them to get a good response, since what I know about music from learning piano in "piano class" is different from learning it through piano lessons. Though I will try sticking with C Major and Minor for now. I use ModPlug Tracker, by the way. And I'll list where I got the samples from:

The Full Silence:
Piano - "Dracula's Castle" by New Order
Toms - sounds website
Echo - I edited some sound... I forget which
Quasi-Square Wave - edited a square click sound from a sound pack

Ice on the Shore:
Synth Bass - "Ballad of a Paralyzed Citizen" by The Faint
Bowed Bass - "Ballad of a Paralyzed Citizen" by The Faint
Piano - "Close to Modern" by French Kicks
Drumset - sound pack

By the way, the idea of "The Full Silence" was to sound like a mix between "Atmosphere" by Joy Division and "In a Lonely Place" by New Order(/Joy Division). Sort of. I'm done now.

If you add me on MSN, I could send you a few good quality sample packs, and maybe give you some more pointers (especially when I can see the original module files). I'm helpful like that.
