Hey man, I love the song a lot. Btw, like the reviewer two below me, that ending was too long lol. I was expecting the same thing. It'd be sick if it jumped back in on the beat to end the song.
Thanks for liking it man!
Yea sorry man haha, but this gives me idea to create an extended version for you guys!
Thanks for enjoying bro!
This is an awesome piece of music. It starts out a little iffy, and I wasn't sure where you would go with it, but the end result was fantastic. All three movements are great, and really capture the mood of the scenes you wrote in the description.
I'm having a hard time choosing whether I like the second or third movements better, but I think I'm probably gonna go with the third, although the piano solo was incredible as well.
Only thing is, and you probably already know this, the quality is a little iffy. Is this a recording, or...?
thanks for the review, tho I'm not sure what you're referring to quality-wise, only the second mvnt is recorded (albeit with a cheap microphone). the first and third mvnts use a sound library whose weakest feature is the string samples, especially when very exposed.
First of all, loved the intro. It's got a great hook.
Starting at :34 and onto about :50, I feel like this section could us some work. I feel like it doesn't flow very well, and the note choices aren't all that interesting, either.
Everything from there does flow very nicely, though. I love how the (flute?) comes in. Everything just ends up fitting together very well.
Hope I helped :).
(I also feel like a distorted guitar would ruin this piece, but that's just my $.02.)
This is really awesome :)
I love you for making this.
Overall, a really good track. When I first started listening, I thought it would end up being waaay too slow, but then it picked up and the rest of the song really flowed well. I love the choice of synths, as well. I still feel like it could be sliiiiightly faster, but don't listen to me, because I'm pretty amateur when it comes to this kind of music.
I feel like I remember you from somewhere...
Did you used to post your songs on AoMH waaaa-aaaay (I'm guessing about 3-4 years ago) back? If so, I think you're the person who inadvertently got me into NG and MIDI in general. I prob shouldn't post that on the review, but, oh well.
I love the song, btw. It took me a few times through to get over the occasional pauses, but for a live performance of an improvisation, it was decently played. No notes missed (from what I can tell), and excellent note choices. If the pauses were non-existent I'd give you a 10.
Not What I was Expecting
Wow, this is so much more than I was expecting. God damn zero bombs tricked me.
I love how you mixed all the parts together at the end. I honestly can't think of anything to improve on. Although, if I remember correctly, I didn't really hear a bass drum (as in a drum-line bass drum) and I think that would've added even more to this piece. I love all the beats you put together for the snare.
You obviously have a very wide range of musical styles and if you literally recorded those piano parts, then kudos to you. You, sir, are one of the best composers I've seen on the recently added page of the classical section in a long time. Great job and keep up the originality! :)
Also, may I ask what programs you used to make this?
Thanks so much for the review! Yeah it kinda sucks putting songs up that you work hard on then seeing them just get rated zero when nobody even had time to listen to them, but it is what it is lol. About the bass drum, yeah for all the percussion I used this one kit that had a combination of percussion instruments kind of set up like a regular drum one would be, and sadly it seems the kit doesn't really have too much of a prominent bass drum, I definitely would've liked to use a drum-line one though, that's definitely a good idea! Yeah I recorded all the instruments in the song with my piano, for this one I used garageband with the orchestra symphony(or whatever it's called lol) jam pack, and I had to have separate tracks because of the tempo changes though, so once I finished I just mixed them together with Audacity. But yeah, I really appreciate the review, it really does mean a lot to me! I'm glad you enjoyed the piece, it's one of my favorites! :D
Nice and simple.
It'd probably be better (IMO) if you panned the tom-tom back to the middle, or maybe had two playing the same rhythm, both panned to opposite sides. It kind of makes me feel deaf in one ear the way it is now :P.
Only reason it's a 7 is b/c it's really short. (5/5 in votes because of those awful zero-bombers).
So, let's get started. I liked the piece, overall, btw.
1. Just a matter of personal opinion, but this piece needs some more development when it comes to the melody. I like it, but it just seems a little... empty? I guess that's the right word.
2. I like the build-up the rhythm gets.
3. Maybe it should be a bit longer, 1:21 seems a little short. That would give you some extra time to add some more development into it.
4. I love the relaxing quality to it.
So yeah, those are the 4 things I thought I'd let you know. Yeah, I know, I'm not the greatest music critic :P. Keep it up, I'm looking forward to seeing the newest version of this song. :)
Why thanks, and I will absolutely work on it more, want to make it have more buildup
I like it
Nice and relaxing. The two musical parts really flow together. Can I ask what instruments you used? Not much to go into, so...
4/5 (I gave you a 5/5 b/c of all the zero-bombs).
Its a preset from Native Instruments "Massive" Vst.
Thanks for the review and score :D
