You've managed to break down the limits of my past-compositions, like a grand weaver of shadows, where particles are driven by your swaying complacency, but amongst that, you have turned tiny stars I've created and poured so much new life into them that they've turned into blazing orbital rings of light that shined throughout all of the darkness that I've composed by the haunting corners of my mind.
I make music speak; you make music scream. Together, we make music live!
Thank you brother. For everything.
That was crazy. I loved it. The atmosphere, the ever changing tone.. wow. 4:27 onward was what really blew me away. I wasn't sure if I wanted to bob my head or build a mechanical horse and hunt zombie cyborgs. This was just madness. Awesome madness. Nicely done.
Thank you very much for your insight. :)
-Okay, you took a "meh" song that's a minute and 40 seconds long and stretched it to being over 7 minutes long and GOOD. That's pretty impressive.
-It was a good idea to use such a simple song as your basis, because it let you do some really crazy stuff over the top.
-Your transitions are AWESOME, even if they're a bit long.
-The vocal samples are very well-done and fit the concept well.
-The first 2 minutes create an amazing ambiance, not sure where the vocal samples come from. Unfortunately, it goes on a little bit too long IMO.
-The buildup from 2:00 to 2:58 is a bit overly long. Could have used a bit of a faster build.
-Some mixing problems on the right side at about 4 minutes in.
-The section from about 4:29 to 5:19 doesn't appear to have much of anything to do with the original song. This is a relatively minor issue, but if you're going to be soloing over pretty much the rest of it due to the simple basis, it should probably stay closer to that. same goes for the string instruments from about 5:42-6:09.
-The ending is a tad dull in comparison to the rest, though it does fit.
Overall: Score of 10/10. This was pretty amazing overall in composition, and even with the minor problems of overly long sections and somewhat unrelated sections, there is a ton of substance here. Great work!
Thank you for your review.
I understand the minor problems you enlisted and I agree with the fact that some parts may seem less fitting or too stretched over. However, my goal was to create an unpredictable piece made of more than just one theme and one atmosphere. Surreal, dream-like that feels tense and ever-changing, adapting itself to various scenarios. I jokingly said to one of the judges that my piece has the potential to divide their opinions and I was right, haha. I treat it positively and it's indeed amusing.
Wow that was some heavy atmosphere at the beginning. It sucked me into the dark and eerie world you've painted with the music. It's awesome.
The rest of the song isn't quite my cup of tea, but that's just opinion. I can tell you're exceptionally talented. 5/5
Thank you, I appreciate it. I originally planned this to kind of... "split" opinions apart while still creating an immersive atmosphere. I just wanted to emphasize how each individual can see different things in the same piece.
