This is for the Orchestra Mac12 Jan/Feb - /bbs/topic/1287744

So this is my first track of 2012! Yay! So I thought to myself since the year 2012 is so popular for being our last year, then why not make my first track all about that.

For this I was looking for a sort of disaster sound, which was one of the hardest things I stupidly decided to do. However, although the entire track was to represent megasized chaos I did want to dive into a sort of survival sound, because that's what it's all about, surviving the entity which causes the threat. What that threat is, I'll leave to your imagination. Because of the nature of genre, I wanted things to twist, turn, stun and clash, yet then be able to come together. It proved troublesome, but so much fun ( I can say that now that's done!" lol)

Theres a full orchestra running here with aggressive percussion to cause a bit more drama and some choirs here and there to emphasise scale of events which take place illustrating the impending doom. You may find that you need to turn up your volume, my mastering is a bit poor and I can't seem to get things loud without distorting the sound.

I've heard some excellent tracks in the OrchMac12 so far, with some stunning compositions from great artists, and as I've read more to come! If you haven't heard about the OrcMac then there's still time to enter! The final date is Feb 15th. All the best to all the involved artists!

Thanks for listening!
P.S. My computer hated me for this project.

So some people are messaging me via PM and reviews asking what are you hearing being here is a quick list. Keep in mind, EVERYTHING is layered, so anytime you hear something it's no doubt sharing the spot with something else, even if its like two trombones from different packages, etc. I feel like it widens the sound, even if it puts insane stress on RAM and CPU (which both were maxed). But that's just my opinion, ive heard some amazing things withour layering, and it might be the reason why i have mastering problems.

So, I tried to make an orchestral piece and I realized that I had the same problem I'm thinking you had, in that all the instruments kind of blend into an orchestra that is A BIT boring to the ear after a while. The choir solos didn't really take the spotlight, they kind of blended in. The lead violins didn't REALLY take the spotlight at any time with a solo, they kind of blended in. I think i've come to realize that people really respond to solos or clean simple sections that are beautiful, because it's so easy to listen to. The song never really slows down and takes a break, which matches the apocalypse feel I guess.

Good job, i like it :)

Hahaha, that's the best part about the year 2012, everybody thinks the world's gonna end. The Maya's stopped their calender as it just restarts just as you could choose music to loop ;)
A classmate of mine was so convinced of all the 2012 ranting that I began to laugh with him, he warned me that the world would really end. I told him I could keep laughing with him until the day the world would happen to end, so I could enjoy all the months laughing while he could only get less then 24 hours in the end. Ain't that the best deal ever? :D

Anyways, back to the music now.
The music has that typical 'PeterSatera vibe' as usual, you could recognise it without reading the author. The music fits an apocalyptic themed video/game.
Conclusion, (cliche response incoming) earcandy
