Newgrounds 2014 Art-Inspired Music Contest entry
The reference picture - "Ancient Spaceship" by Madstah:
http://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/madstah/ancient-spaceship

Now, I'm not going to win anything, just taking part because I think it's fun. The artwork I've chosen has everything that I like - snow, mountains, ice, beautiful dale, huge frozen ancient spacecraft and smaller starships rushing towards it... and it also has a mystery. Being a relic of somebody's past, it was once sent into the distant future, forever separated from the history of its civilization.

Very cinematic. Not what I had in mind when I saw the image. It's too action driven. But appart from that the song is perfect. I like how the different instruments add different layers, and combine very well. All of the instruments sound very good and professional. It gives you a very epic and futuristic feel, like is in the picture, so in that sense it fits.

Awesome work, nice composition! love how you mixed the electronics with the orchestra.
The mix sounds very good and clear too!
I'm not too great at giving constructive feedback either, but I enjoyed listening to this.
Keep it up! :)

Felt like it started a bit too abrupt. Was like it started in the middle of the song.
Felt like the guitar sounded a bit too grumsy some times.
Some times it sounded like the percussion was drowned by everything else going on.
I also don't think the samples fits very well with the track, though that's just my opinion.

I don't actually agree with RF about the guitar volume. I'm leaning more towards Emid.

It reflects the art piece very well :D. and it's a really solid piece :D.

This song doesn't really pick up until right when the french horns and orchestra kick in, and it's not because the guitar itself doesn't live up to the cinematic atmosphere, but it still feels like the intro could have been further developed.

And then the glorious climax occurs, thankfully. Transitions are well handled and in my opinion this piece doesn't sound rushed at all. It still has potential, but I've honestly heard worse and my friendly advice would be to keep going in this direction while paying particular attention to your mastering and your build-ups. The mastering is a little bit loud, in my opinion, but at least every instrument is in its own place, so bonus points for that.

Thanks a lot! It's rather interesting actually, I had no intention to use horns or strings at first because I tend to put them everywhere, but then I though I could really create that sci-fi vast landscape feel I needed. So probably what you said reflects the roadmap of my thinking as well :D Also, interesting how RealFaction writes "the guitar needs to be a little louder", and then you comment that mastering in general could've been not so loud. Different points of view or I just misunderstood either of you. Anyways, thanks for the high mark and the pieces of advice!

Wow! As expected from you. Just listening to the piece makes you think of a beautiful landscape sort of thing. I mean you killed it right there with the key change, it magnified the epicness tenfold. Although the transition to the keychange wasn't the best, the piece still blew me away by its epicness. Also, a mix between orchestral music and techno (I believe) is purely awesome.

You'll be a great composer or whatever you wanna be...there's no way no ones gonna love you for your music. I mean, even if you failed at video game making, you have a rare talent for composing and you can go touch the hearts of people with music by being a songwriter for movies or like a music teacher and stuff. You're an inspiration to me as composer and I wanna aim to be as good as you someday...after I find another, less crappy music program to use.

Anyways....great piece. I might haven gotten carried away there, so sorry about that.

Man, honestly, thank you for your kind words, when I read them it really feels like I have a purpose in life. Being an inspiration for another composer is also something completely new to me. I can see that you are sincere and this amazes me the most, I'm just not used to listeners treating me like that. Seriously, you made my day with this comment. I wish that you take someone else as a model, though. We all wish to be "like that other guy", but in fact what we need is to develop our own approach in music and master it - something that I'm lacking at the moment. Let's hope we'll make it there one day.
