Everything sounds so crisp, but not all heavy! That's a really, really good thing.
It was a very interesting mix of styles, definitely unique in its own way. Sometimes it clashes, sometimes it flows perfectly, much like a dance. Though I guess that's to be expected when you collaborate with people.
Clashes aren't always a bad thing, either. They give it an entirely different effect and mood. And while most of them seemed to be in good taste, some of them just rubbed me the wrong way, which prevents me from giving you a perfect score.
Still, was a very interesting piece, and I definitely encourage more explorational works such as this one. c:
I appreciate this review very much so. I am glad you liked the piece. There will be plenty more to come!
Peace and love,
Once again, wonderful piece. I don't think I can say much about this one, as I'm not a musician myself and the only thing that really bothered me was that the intro felt almost too heavy. But it definitely sucks you into the song and prepares you for what's to come; which is an awesome piece that, as the person below said, very much reminds me of Two Steps from Hell -- which is one of my main inspirations of drawing the more serious works that I do.
I can definitely see this being used in a commercial, though. I'm almost tempted to ask you if I can animate something to it; under the right credits and licenses of course. c:
Yes, you can! Seriously, thank you so much for your reviews and I think after all what's the point of cinematic music if there are no visuals? PM me to discuss the details! Speaking of the intro, I should say that it's quite an old project and I listened to it so many times that evidently lost the sense of proportion...
Oh my god this is beautiful. The guitar, the first few notes, I didn't think would fit, but shortly after it blended in very lovingly and it turned out to add such a mystical effect.
It overall makes me think of something rising up to a challenge and overcoming it.
Still though, some parts of the drums feel too sharp and end up sounding kind of like a crackling, though it hardly takes away from the overall appeal. And I was kind of hoping for a more complete ending, though it simply trailed off. I'm not sure if you're planning on building onto this song at a later date, but I would certainly love to hear it.
Overall, marvelous job, and I look forward to what you make in the future. c:
You see, I actually made this piece in a rush and decided to concentrate on its quality rather than length. But in fact right now I don't see how I could add anything else to it that wouldn't make the impression blander... I might turn back to it in future, but I'm afraid it won't be soon. I wonder what kind of drums you mean exactly, the snare and the kick or those cinematic toms. Hopefully (as it was my first experience with the Epic Toms library) I'll figure how to blend them nicely without any discomfort.
This is such a lovely melody. It gives me very strong ideas of some sort of struggle and a lot of sadness, but is still beautiful in every aspect. I guess I expected a little bit more variation with small, stronger points at some place in the tune, but it hardly takes away from the song.
Thank you, glad you enjoyed it.
