NOTE: Just a quick heads up! You may have to turn up the volume a bit on this one. It is a bit on the quiet side (Unless my speakers are simply terrible and/or broken).

Before someone inevitably asks, the answer is no; this is not Naruto. It isn't related to the song "Sadness and Sorrow" on Naruto, nor did I even watch the anime at the time I wrote this. That is a great song, but this is completely unrelated aside from the coincidental sharing of titles. :P

Now that we've got that out of the way, on to the actual commentary. I wrote this piece long ago, and I've come a long way musically since then. However, I have received several requests to remake this song. I've added a VERY simple intro, a nicer piano soundfont, some strings, and I've tweaked the volume in a few spots. I think it sounds a lot better, but you can compare if you'd like.

Anyhow, I look forward to your comments! I would love to know your opinion, how I might improve this, or even what you imagine as you listen to this music. I read and respond to every review, so don't shy away! XD

Thanks in advance, and enjoy. :)

PS. I really need a decent strings sample for free. I have been using the string soundfont that comes with the FL Studio demo, but I can't stand it anymore. Know of any good samples for free?

Beautiful =`)

This is breathtaking...what more can I say?
Daniel Sun was wise to choose this piece for Power Star 4.

Oh, by the way, the best place to find free VSTi and Soundfonts is soundfonts.it
It has a bunch of great royalty-free stuff to choose from. Soundfonts are as easy as downloading, extracting, and moving to your FL soundfonts folder.

I now have some libraries from EastWest, but thanks for the suggestion. Hey, and thanks for doing the arrangement of my piece! Seriously, that means a lot to me. :)

Just the title makes me cringe :/

Sadness and Sorrow.... hmmmm wonder what the song is about....

It's just was too blatant of a title... for me at least...


BlazingDragon responds:

Hahaha, I love some blunt honesty. Thank you for that. Titling music is a weakness of mine. :p

BlazingDragon responds:

It wasn't originally intended as a loops, but turned out well as one. In Power Star 4, it seems that Daniel Sun actually copied the middle section and made it repeat a few extra times to fit the length of the flash scene. :P

Thanks for the encouragement!

The title fits

I stumbled across this due to Power Star 4.. and the first thing to cross my mind is "who is the composer? I must know." i found you in the credits.. came here and listened to the whole song.
it is poetic and poignant. its simplistic nature only deepens the emotional sadness and i applaud you for this because this is actually VERY hard to do. instead of it just being singular notes, you were able to fixate very strong (passionate) chords amidst the stream but you didn't over do it. I especially like how they would indicate the phrasing and lead into the sadness.
I dunno if this is possible since i've never touched the program FL studio before but i would experiment having the strings do a tremolo and see if that darkens the mood any because (if i can be frank) the sustaining thing gets sort of boring.. and at some points i thought maybe the strings could take a partial moving line (but more of a bridge/connector) between the piano's pauses.
the only thing i especially do NOT like about this is the ending... because it makes me feel sad that the song was over rather than saddened by my past or whatever the listener envisions. sorry but, this was WAAY too short. this could've been something brilliant and i felt its glory was not given a chance.

on a side note. come talk to me about string soundfont samples. I'm sure i can help you find some and i believe i found something similar.. but not what u were looking for. I think you're a brilliant artist and i would really like to help you continue to advance in any way i can.

BlazingDragon responds:

I want to go into film music because of the very simplicity which you have mentioned. In film music, the focus is not on complicated chords or complex contrapuntal melody lines which dance about each other. Rather, it focuses on evoking an emotional response in the listener, and this is often executed with simple melodies.

This song was composed many years ago when I did not have much knowledge of writing music. I still do not have a great amount of knowledge, but I think that I could expand it. I might do so one day.

As for the soundfont, I have much better software which I have purchased. Thank you for reviewing.

That was calming really

hmmm... why I'm giving this a 9? It loops perfectly, too perfectly, I didn't notice it was just a 1:38 length tune. But if someone were to down load this, it'd have to be longer cause :
The calming, relaxing and sadness coming from this piece is just so great it has to be longer and end well enough to notice it really did finish.
The atmosphere in this song is both sad and relaxing. Why?
Here's why : (A small story)
Walking down the path in the local park, you look around you seeing people smiling, happy. It's summer, a time of sunshine and fun. But you alone can't spend it with anyone just like the people around you. Thinking of that, you start remembering the hardships you went through since childhood, all the pain, the sorrows, the betrayal and the suffering you experienced. You look up the sky, seeing clouds that are shaping into the most hurtful moments. You ask yourself in your mind : "Why?" But get no reply. A tear runs down from your eye as you look back down, halting you from continuing to walk forward. You sit down on the park bench watching everyone else still happy. You look up towards the sun and notice it's great shining beauty, and remember the good times. You smile and wipe your tear from your face and push out a breath. You stare off at the sunset sitting on the park bench still awaiting for the response of your question.
Yeah, all this came to mind during this piece played and looped, lol.

It's a soothing tune, nothing else seems to be able to describe it better.

The short length and subtle ending allows for the piece easy utilization in flash scenes. If I were to flesh it out as a stand alone piece, it would definitely need more length and a definitive end. That was a great point that you brought up!

Your scene is lovely and gives me a distinct image. Such things tend to inspire me to compose. Thank you for the excellent review. :)
