I just stared at the screen for like half an hour when i heard this. It's you could say captivating yet it also makes want to do nothing but listen (kind of the same thing)

Hey there!

Thanks for your kind words - i am glad you liked it. I know this feeling you are talking about. Some days ago i have listened to rachmaninovs corelli-variations 3 times in a role and stared at the screen for maybe an hour. Music really has the power to move you into a different world.

Thanks a lot for your review and i wish you a happy new year!

When the song started up I noticed right away a slight transitional problem. It went from low sound to immediately higher volume. It should have either built up or been at full volume from the start. As the rest of the song played on I enjoyed the melody. May have just been me however.

The piano was very touching and calm. The sound was very clean and the slight reverb heard afterward was nice to listen to.

The jingling bells heard give the song a very festive feel as one could imagine the rabbit hopping around. Also not sure if that is meant to be rain I'm hearing or paper crumbling since it seems to fit for either with the second background sound being heard as the song plays.

The light use of violin was enjoyable. However towards the end the jingling bells, violin, and piano all being heard together for a moment didn't seem to sound good. Possibly move the jingle bells forward a step.

Overall, minimal issues, sounds great!

Hello SCTE3!

Thanks a lot you took the time to review my piece :> You are right - the volume at the start is quite low sound. I did this by intent because i wanted the repetitions within the introduction not to sound monotonic. So i decided to raise the volume step by step until the maintheme shows. But maybe it is really to low. When i made the track i have used very good headphones. Could have been the reason why i did not notice that the volume could be to low. Thanks for that hint!

The fx within the midpart should be a delicate fire-sound. I wanted to do something that sounds a little bit strange, but somehow cozy. The scene i had in my mind: The rabbits are looking into the window from outside and interrupt their play for a short time. The christmas-athmosphere within the house seems very curious but interesting to them. After a while they go on playing.

I just was afraid the cut between the first part and the midpart could be a little bit to hard. Because i always try to make my pieces within one session (5-6 hours) i always need some time to see if i am comfortable with them or not. So i think i will still need some time :D

I will check out the bell - string - piano - combination towards the end - maybe i will do some facelift.

Thanks a lot for leaving your helpful thoughts here. I am really glad you liked it and wish you a merry christmas and a happy new year!!

Best wishes!
Chris

Hello! No fancy introduction this time, I'll just get straight to the review.

The Good:
-Mixing is perfect, I can hear everything fine, and the dynamic contrast shines through clearly.
-Love the subtle glockenspiel or bells in the background, same goes for the strings and percussion.
-The chord progression is lovely, and the constant 16th notes doing the subtle bottom for the tune is very pretty.
-I really like the melody, it has a classical and jazz feel at the same time.

The Not-So-Good:
-I do not like the fire sound in the middle. While it works for the mood, it's not musical enough.
-The transition at around 0:37, neither is the one at around 1:15. The outro is "meh". For piano it's alright, but I can't help wishing that it were a bit better.

Overall: This gets a 9/10 from me. I really can't find much of anything wrong with it aside from that and a few other extremely minor quibbles that would just be me getting annoying and petty. lol. In other words, GREAT job. Downloading and playing at Christmas. ;)

Hey Skye!

Thanks so much for this very detailed review. Speechless u took the time on christmas to review my piece! I am pretty glad that you liked the 16th note-base of the tune. I was affraid this could bring to much agitation in and the melody could suffer in cause of that. Otherwise i wanted to get tha feeling of levitation and decided to use the 16ths to create this effect.

The midpart and firesound is the result of a special scene i imagined while composing. I wanted to do something that sounds a little bit strange, but somehow cozy. I decided to bring in strange harmonics and wanted to loosen up the stability of the rhythm which has been created by the 16th before. Then i combined it with the firesound because i hoped, that this would give a homelike feeling.
The scene i had in my mind: The rabbits are looking into the window from outside and interrupt their play for a short time. The christmas-athmosphere within the house seems very curious but interesting to them. After a while they go on playing.

Maybe i will overdo the outtro a little bit.

I am glad you liked it and hope you and your family had a super nice christmas!

Best wishes to maine and merry christmas, my friend!
