Ok again another experiment song,, hopefully you'll find this one relaxing :)
Anyway, I didn't know what genre to put this in... so I guess I'll stick to "trance" xD

Reviews are much appreciated :-)

Hey thanks for the review. I like to give one back. I'm not sure if a experimental song is something you wanted more reviews on, but here goes.

Interesting, a mixture of trance, folk, and classical. I would have to say this is like your mainstream kind. The reason I say this is because the harmonies you used are similar to other piano solo songs. It worked for the professional artists so why not try it. I'm a fan of symphonies when it comes to classical music due to the variation going on. Though yours may not be a symphony, it is a good thing that you incorporated other genres to help keep my interest.

0:44 perhaps a low cut on that thunder fx so I can hear it better. Nice job incorporating nature sounds.

0:57 the choir sounds good, but I personally find it better to have a longer attack on it. This abrupt choir rather than a glowing hum is best represented at 1:04.

As you probably already expected, I'm all about diversity and I felt the song felt repetitive. 1:12 the harmony is playing the similar thing as it did earlier in the song. However, this is just me so don't let that bug you.

1:39 Well the explosion can only do so much as a transition. It was not enough and a bit messy. However, back to the peaceful stuff, your strong point.

Ghostly like fx w/ nature sounds and a subbed vocal...again a interesting idea. What is the voice saying?

What's up with the 2:09 subby bass buildup? Didn't work as a fluent transition to me.

2:10 I like this part because of the piccolo/flute playing.

So I'm going to cut the review here because I am noticing a trend. This is truly a experimental song as you said. You tried a bunch of stuff, but had a few issues with the transitions. That's fine, you learn through experimenting. I would have liked it if you experimented more on making more original melodies. I can tell you have a music background higher than most NG artists here, so it should not come as a surprise to you when I say your piano composition was a bit unoriginal. Remember, its not about the notes per se you used but the rhythm is unoriginal. However, great job with bringing the mellow mood along with some aggression at the more trancy part. Oh, and about that attempted vocal part...are you trying to find a vocalist? Oh I too wish I could find someone who had a golden voice. That is essentially the key thing to make any quality song today. As you probably know, stripping the vocals in mainstream music makes the song sound bland.
Oh well, make do with what we got.

Bye for now

To be honest I'm not that familiar with piano symphonies, it's not the style of music I normally listen to and they're usually far too advanced for me. But definitely I can see that the main piano melody seems to be similar to the cliched piano symphony sound,, I'm glad you found the mixture of genres interesting :))

"0:44 perhaps a low cut on that thunder fx so I can hear it better. Nice job incorporating nature sounds."

haha I'm actually glad you thought that was a thunder fx, it was actually a sweep down from a vengeance pack which I edited and layered with a different sweep I made, but it definitely sounds like one :)

"0:57 the choir sounds good, but I personally find it better to have a longer attack on it. This abrupt choir rather than a glowing hum is best represented at 1:04."

that's true, the original choir sound had a much longer attack which i decreased over excessively.

"As you probably already expected, I'm all about diversity and I felt the song felt repetitive. 1:12 the harmony is playing the similar thing as it did earlier in the song. However, this is just me so don't let that bug you."

I suppose that would be because I'm used to producing trance music and that usually has a repetitive pattern; I also find it helps the song flow more smoothly

"1:39 Well the explosion can only do so much as a transition. It was not enough and a bit messy. However, back to the peaceful stuff, your strong point."

I actually did and re-did that transition a couple of time and it was the hardest part of the song to do, so I'm not surprised you found it lacking

"Ghostly like fx w/ nature sounds and a subbed vocal...again a interesting idea. What is the voice saying?"

The voice says: "Since the moment of birth, the touch smell or sight" [piano] "is a welcome home"... there's meant to be "of a familiar face" between them but I wanted the piano to stand out in that section lol

"What's up with the 2:09 subby bass buildup? Didn't work as a fluent transition to me."

I like that buildup

"2:10 I like this part because of the piccolo/flute playing."

thanks :)) and flute

About that original melodies well, to be honest I'm not quite that advanced in composition I can't even read notes although that might not matter, but yeah again it does sound like a cliched piano melody :p I'll try my best to be more original next time

and who isn't trying to find a vocalist? xD

thanks a lot for your detailed review, I'll be sure to review some more of your tracks when I have the time

bye for now :))

If there is anything I like, I love dreamy, chilled-out, mellow music, and you delivered a wonderful example of that. The overall tone of the music was just beautiful.

Just curious. How long have you been working on music? Also, what gear/software did you use for making this song?

Again, nice piece. Keep up the good work!

Thank you very much for the compliments, I'm really glad you liked this :))

I've been producing music for about two years although I started playing piano when I was young

I used FL Studio 10 as a DAW for this, and for the sounds I used a mixture of soundfonts and vst's... and a pair of headphones for gear xD

Again, thank you for leaving a review!

You've done it again! You amazed and fascinated me :D
Pretty neat, chilly intro which evolves into your experimental grounds :D In my opinion there are slightly too many different instruments in this short time though and there is a little weird break (to my ears) around 0:58 where the music turns down a little too much.
Your piano melodies are getting more complex and awesome with every song, I really admire your skill with that, so keep it up! :D

greets, Fabyy

Thank's a lot for the review man!
I'm glad you enjoyed the intro :) I agree that it's very compressed and that makes it messy at some points, that's probably because I just kept listening to it over and over again making edits.

Thanks a lot for the compliments, I'll try my best to continue uploading tracks!
