After finally getting a new iLok key since my other one was broken, I can continue using East/West Symphonic Orchestra and finally finish up this song. This is intended to be some practice for a piano/drum song I'm doing for the Piano/Drum Competition Quarl's organising, so don't expect much. Still, I'm particularly proud of the drums I did here, and the melody is also pretty good too (came to me when messing around on my piano).

This uses East/West for all instruments except the pan flute which is from the SGM V2.01 soundfont. This song is supposed to represent how time in an ordinary day passes by so quickly when you're trapped in the prison of routine. Notice that the clock ticking at the beginning is ticking in seconds, as you're waking up for another boring day, and it slowly speeds up, indicating time passing by so quickly when your routine starts. Then, the daily routine ends and the song slows down as one gets to bed, sleeps, and wakes up to find his routine starting all over again.

I hope you enjoy this. I didn't work too hard on it, but it came out well IMO. Thanks for the listen, and don't forget to vote and comment. I'll reply to every review (the longer your review the longer my reply) and review back if your review is helpful in any way. Thanks again!

EDIT: Forgot to mention that the choirs in here aren't East/West, but Magnus Choir.

Oh and also, the 0-bomber who was about to zero my song accidentally misclicked and gave me a 1 instead :3.

Time Passes By

Good work on the drums. It's not often you get to hear tempo changes, and you really made it very effective. If you ever work on this more, or extend it, a good way to reinforce that super subtly cool melody would be to use long drawn out brass notes, this can be soprano sax or clarinet etc. And then every bar reinforce it with harmonies until climax, then back to the break down.
I really enjoyed this piece. I personally don't think you need to work for weeks on something, that the amount of time/work spent somehow translates to a better piece. When I enjoy a song, I never think to myself: a lot of work went into that. hehe
Basically, the beat and the melody here has a clear intent and grabs my interest immediatly. I supppose the bass can be more defined, but that's not the end of the world. The only instrument here that I don't like is the pan flute, but that's just personal taste/preference.

- going 'round in broken circles...

Anyways, great track. Let me know if you ever update it.
5/5

Wow, thanks for the lengthy review!

"Good work on the drums."

Thanks. I'm pretty decent when it comes to drums actually, just bad at everything else :P.

"It's not often you get to hear tempo changes, and you really made it very effective."

Yeah, I definitely agree that tempo changes are pretty awesome if done correctly. I only added this tempo change to make it fit with the theme of time that this song has though :3.

"If you ever work on this more, or extend it, a good way to reinforce that super subtly cool melody would be to use long drawn out brass notes, this can be soprano sax or clarinet etc. And then every bar reinforce it with harmonies until climax, then back to the break down."

Excellent idea, if I revisit this song, I'm *definitely* considering this.

"I really enjoyed this piece. I personally don't think you need to work for weeks on something, that the amount of time/work spent somehow translates to a better piece. When I enjoy a song, I never think to myself: a lot of work went into that. hehe"

Lol xD. Although I'm actually pretty surprised you liked this, it's probably one of my worst recent submissions :P. Maybe I should take a few hours to finish a song more often, lol.

Hm, I personally really like the sound of a pan flute. To each his own I suppose. The bass can definitely be more defined, you're not the first to mention it.

hmm. i like it

using east west for this much must take a shitload of RAM... ._.

well that aside, nice track you made there man, i somewat feal that its a little boring and tha the sections are too short and alike.. but well it is a prison afterall eh? the masterings are pretty good. id say a tad more bass... but well i cant really get enugh bass aslong it doesnt ruin the rest xD (personal isue...)
else its pretty good man. keep it up.

Thanks for the review! Actually this song isn't that RAM-intensive. To use East/West, you need a minimum of 2 GB of RAM, and I have 3.25 GB, yet in more thick orchestrations such as Land of Kings, East/West sticks like hell. As for adding more bass, sure, that Double Bass is a bit quiet anyway ^^.
Thanks again for the helpful review!
