Inspriring

Might as well keep reviewing those random songs I click on. I feel regret in this 'un, and it's a good song. A tad short, in my opinion, but it's got a strong feel.

GronmonSE responds:

Thanks, I was aiming for that, hence the name =P

Awesome

o: This is brilliant SE (Granted that may be biased as I love piano pieces normally) but you can feel the emotion in it. It is kinda sad, like someone is looking back on past regrets about a love. And yes. I always draw my own random meanings from songs ;3

GronmonSE responds:

Yep, that was the point :)

Thanks mate.

Outstanding.

You've done a great job making this one, it has a very inspiring sound to it.

Thanks again for checking out my music.

I hope you make music for the rest of your life.

GronmonSE responds:

Thanks O.o;

And no problem.

nice...

nice abandoned old mansion is where i'd put this.
visions of ghosts, and a lonely woman who can not pass on....

awesome!

GronmonSE responds:

Thanks ^ ^

"She was... the only one I had left to care for."

Although I am a person who tends to look towards music with a more optimistic attitude in regards to the overall composure of the song, I have to give you special commendations on the fact that your submission has the FEEL of a true "tragedy" song; not only did it take the instruments and blend them into a more cynical light, but listening to this actually MADE ME FEEL slightly more composed and depressed than before. That may sound like a bad thing, but trust me, that's the kind of emotion you WANT to irk out of people with this kind of song.

The strongest point in your submission is by far the opening sequence, or in specifics, the first minute. This is because the original lead in gives the sense that a tragic event has just happened, and the following tunes begin to culminate into a larger, more catastrophic reaction, bringing this sudden flow of negative emotions into a single, powerful experience.

As for the second portion of this song, I felt a little less affected by the flow overall. While the "wahs" in the background were a nice touch, it felt only slightly off from the feel of the rest of the song. In addition, I feel that for such a sad piece, the point at which it ended was simply too abrupt to be optimally efficient. Thus, if I had to suggest an improvement, it would be to include a sort of "slow down" that suggests the dying down of this furl of emotions, to FULLY leave the listener to consider these new feelings.

That said, this was certainly one of the more enjoyable pieces I have heard, even if it did not earn a perfect score (and thus, a fave) from me. The composition itself is very well thought out, and I can easily see its consequential incorporation into a flash sometime in the future. All we can hope for now is that someone of better Flash talent than me comes across this :3

GronmonSE responds:

Thanks for the thorough review, I appreciate it a lot. I fully understand what you mean about the second portion of the song.

Music is a way of expressing how we feel. I wrote this song a while ago when I was feeling down and moody. I was sitting on my computer, wondering what to do, and then I just opened FL and starting composing the song. You can easily tell when I wasn't sad anymore. The next day, I had an artist's block, and I could no longer continue on with the song, I was uninspired and happy. Weeks passed and I never got sad again. I decided to work on the song anyway, playing around and looking for a way to "connect" the pieces, it was painfully hard to finish the song.

Everything after 1:25 turned out to be fairly simple and fun though. Even though it's not as tragic as the beginning, it turned out quite good IMO. Sadly, I rushed though the final notes, but I don't regret it, I stop liking songs that I don't finish after a while. You can see the song from a different perspective now that I think of it. The song's tragic at first indeed, but then there's an emotional "twist", so to speak.

Again, thanks for the review.
