Not sure what style this is... a bit of synthy piano prog/ambience - I hope the ambience comes across...
This was composed in a hurry, so I hope it still seems to be a quality piece...

Quibokk – Sagacity

Wow lol, Electric Six :P sorry, I just couldn't resist, because somehow the song just radiates a very specific air from it, and I'm sniggering, recalling that it's been a while since I put those guys on. Bad news though – I never, ever considered Electric Six to be even remotely ambient. This is a cool electronic song, but not ambient at all... well, the intro shows a little promise, but then you go all crotch disco on it (expecting a fire at the Taco Bell soon... oops, was that a fire truck going by my window?), and then just full out murder it with the piano. Find me one ambient track with even a tenth of those piano notes you managed to tuck in there. You'd do well in an Electric Six comp, but for now it's not happening...

The intro was great. But then it unexpectedly turned into a non-ambient song. It was upbeat and not atmospheric. It was too busy and unpeaceful IMHO. The piano was in your face and too loud. The drum beat was inappropriate for this type of song. The song was also too short. It just didn't fit at all, sorry.

Quibokk – Sagacity

The tune is ok, but for an ambient comp it just doesn’t fly. Most of the time it’s just way too upbeat and features crazy fast lead lines which shouldn’t be able to be found in an ambient song in my opinion.

If it wasn’t an ambient comp this would get a better rating, but for now it’s just too much all over the place. Really… a piano solo with constant 32nd notes pretty much and not to mention the outro which is the same?... And that’s not even taking account of the absence of a well developed mood and the upbeat feel that is present throughout most of it. Just doesn’t work.

The piano solo is ok though looking at it alone – the same is true for most of the other parts in the song, except the annoying 32nd note stuff in the outro. You just fail to put the stuff together in an efficient way and most of all you fail to realize what creates an ambient mood.

Humm... ambient?? Not sure, but let’s forget that... for now...

You said you wanted us to help you imrpove this song, I say you don’t have to improve it. If this was a open genre comp, I would definitely give it at least a 4. I love the “disco” kind of style you have in some parts (bars 29-30 for example). Another great part is the second verse. Great work on the piano there. Btw, the only part that I liked in the piano solo is bars 36-37, not that I hate the rest of it, but you get the idea...I also liked the disturbing mood in the outro.

Now with the sad part. Before I asked Jazz what was ambient (that’s before I wrote my song), I would have said this might fit the genre, but now I dont think so. There’s too much going on to really relax while listening to it. Sorry.

Oh, did I already say... How the **** did you wrote this 24 hours before the submission deadline!???? Ahem... So it is great song – doesnt fit very well genre...
