I just finished the "loopable" version of my track Fairy Forest (I've already posted it here). I think it's much worse than the full version
To be honest I think both versions are really good! The first one had a percussion and guitar part, but the second one works just as well for a more "peaceful" environement. I'd use both of them in a game, just in different situations (for example the second one for when the player is walking around and the first for a fight in the forest).
Welcome, my new track of wonders!
Judging by the picture I imagine this is a song that plays when the player dies (or the situation is dire). So you made your song very dissonant.
But it doesn't really work; here's why:
Using dissonance is complicated, you don't just throw notes around to make it sound horrible. Dissonance works best for creating tension, but that (often) implies some kind of release. There can be a majority of dissonance to create more tension than release, but if there's only dissonant chords without structure, it doesn't work in my opinion.
Hope this helps (and that I didn't sound too harsh) ^_^
Here's something I've been working on myself, I'm not too happy with the second part and don't know how to make it better / continue the song
(please excuse me for that horrifying picture)
