For Quest for the Crown Contest by Bosa...

For long, I tried my best to find and create another unique song. It was very difficult, until now. This song has its own uniqueness. I present, to you, Sorrow 2.0.

This song took me forever to produce. First idea came not long after the success of Sorrow. I want to produce something similar to Sorrow, but still has its own unique. Little more constructive ideas of this song came during my boot camp's spare times. Now I had a little more time to finish this thing.

It's up to you to judge my music :)

Instruments:

= Low whistle (original sample from Nightbeat, in his song Seasons' Passing), heavily modified by me.
http://modarchive.org/ind ex.php?request=view_by_mo duleid&query=49647
= Choirs from Miroslav Philharmonik
= Percussions from wurfel-waffles
- Frame drum
- Snares
= Rest is from EWQL and Session String
- Harp
- Strings

Tracked in Renoise (I might convert all VSTi to samples, if anyone wants the notes :D)

Perfect background music, if you know what I mean. This is melodic enough to keep you entertained during long travels (and thank God we have such a beautiful instrument as the low whistle - one of my favorites, by the way) but at the same time remains calm and versatile so it doesn't bore. I can sense some TES and The Settlers influence here, forgive me if I'm wrong. Very middle-agey and graceful.

This is one of those beautiful rare pieces I listen to once in a while. It's like a wild flower in somewhere in unknown. A rare gem that being hidden. A rare talent that is waiting to be discovered. I can see you follow your minimal arrangements, however, they are greatly well done. With so simple instrument sets, you can turn them into wonderful work.

I just checked out Bosa's previous contest, and found you are part of its winners. Congrats.

Yo, my Finn bro. What 's up! That's too flattened. I'm not that talented, actually. It's more of hardworking on mastering, mixing and figuring out what notes I tracked wrong, lol.

Yeah, I could have been out of the winning game if bassfiddlejones entered or Step worked bit harder. As you can see it could take me very long time to write something like this, plus I don't always have ass kicking inspirations lying around all the time.

So yeah.

You've got some great chord progressions here. I like the pulse you have in the beginning that leads up to the entrance of the flute. The choir is subtle, but adds plenty to the mix without being overbearing. I really like the minimalism you have going on, especially with the piano. The low whistle sound is great.

I love that chord progression that begins around 2:00. My biggest critique would probably be that you could have done a lot more with the build leading up to 2:38, and 2:38 could have been a lot bigger. That, and I would have liked to see a bit more variation with the strings. That said, I really am a fan of the minimalist approach you have here.

This piece elicits emotion from the listener, which is its greatest virtue. You accomplish this, I believe, with the use of a unique chord progression as well as the pulse that carries throughout the piece. This song does not feel linear to me but is still coherent, which is a good thing. I could easily see this used in a game. Great job!

Crap, I totally forgot your review! Thanks for your input a lot man. I just ran out of good idea for the spiccato strings. I tried to add more stuff but it turned out quite bad, so I kept the piece this way. Unlike the other version, this piece aims for emotional, not really epic feels.

Thanks.
