A song I created to a picture, been something I've been trying lately, creating music with the mood of a certain picture in mind... Personally, I think the feel of this track fits the picture I did it to pretty well.

The picture, along with a small explanation behind it can be found in my newspost at this URL:

This song is relaxing and soothing. This is nice.
However, there are a few flaws. The piece was going quite well until the end. The piece simply died after that. There was no more to it. And overall, this piece was far too loud. There were more instruments and sounds added later, but it wasn't enough. We need more dynamic contrast, a far more satisfyingly ending, and a greater depth of emotion. That is the key. Skillfully applied emotion. We need a stronger air of calm. I am not going to lie. This is far from my usual interpretation of euphony. The low score was thought out. I had considered a higher score. But after weighing out some heavily important traits, I decided that this isn't worthy of such a great score. Sorry for my cruelty.

Not cruel, it's constructive, I like constructive.

To be fair, this was one of my first, if not my first, foray into a truly emotional music. It's also before I started really working on my pianist skills.

Although I will say that I hold the belief of, "Simple yet effective is best". You won't find anything done by me that contains layers and layers of complex melodies and technical passages. Because I simply don't believe music has to be complicated to be a joy to listen to.

Regardless, like I've told other people in the past, I have recently been debating reworking this song (As it is one of my personal favorites) to give it an updated and shinier polish. No ETA on when though.

Thanks for the review.

Great song!

Hearing this, i picture a video game in my head where the sub main character comes across a burned down village she must and starts looking for survivors but finds only dead or injured characters and sympathizes with the injured and towards the end of the song she goes out in search of whoever did this to see that it never happens again. Later in the game as soon as she reaches the world map she will meet the Main Character and new allies... All that comes to mind hearing this song good job! haha

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

That's pretty close to the emotion I was more or less portraying with the song, was a sense of despair or hopelessness. Granted, it seems a lot of people interpret it as a more happy song, which is fine, I'm not gonna tell people they can't think of my songs the way I originally write them... because that'd just be arrogant.

Regardless, check out the picture this song was written to if you haven't already, the link is in the Author Comments. Or you can't find the newspost on my profile entitled "Darker Than Black". It was posted on Feb. 3, 2011 if that helps you find it.

And again, thanks for the review!

A great piece of music.

Sad, sweet, and soothing. It's amazing how the music was in an actual game. The sadness in the beginning, sweetness shortly after, and the soothingness (not a word but I'll use it anyways.) already in. You're a good music composer.

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

Thanks! I appreciate it!

Hey BFP! This sounds very different from the track I put the solo over :) I really like it. The intro riff reminds me of Moonlight Sonata, carries the same melancholy vibe, very nice throughout though really enjoyed.

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

Yeah, I have a tendency to write just about everything in terms of music, upload a heavy metal song one day, and a classical piano piece the next... Keeps things interesting.

Glad you like it.
