For the NG Orchestral Composition

Nothing I've done thus far comes close to sonically describing the perfect nightmares of the painter Zdzisław Beksiński, but I can certainly try.

I love the strings, its my favorite part as it reminds me of so many Asian films. Just the beginning and end seems a bit off as the other reviewers mention. Still an enjoyable piece.

Yes, there's a few problems with the brass, but at least it's only at the start and the end. The rest of the song is a pretty fine job.

I disagree with Damn-Nation. This is amazing. I love the string arragnements and the oriental feel. The glissandos add a live touch to the melody. The counterpoints are really cool. The only thing that doesn't sound right to me are the saxophones. They're too "close" sounding and out of place.

Greyvoice responds:

I really appreciate it, thank you. I wanted some cheeky and disarming sounding brass at the beginning, I EQed that sax a little hard to make it pop, but in this case mayhaps a bit too much

I can see where you were going with this, and there are certainly parts I enjoyed. I think the use of strings is nicely done...

However, the yikes for me is just the overall theme and tone of the track. It listens like the OST from an episode of Mr Bean and the Ancient Pyramid. The brass isn't used very well, there's a lot going wrong with the instrumentation IMHO.

Keep it up though, it's not the worst entry here! I'd like to hear more from you in the future. Thanks for putting this together

Greyvoice responds:

I do appreciate the honesty and the constructive feedback. Won't get any better without it!
