I like it, i can see you tried to create a balance between tension and resolution so that the listeners don't get bored...and it worked (pretty much). It sounds totally epic and it's a really good piece even without the second part. I love the part at like 4:30, where everything stops...it's a shame you had to cut it off there because that was where most of the tension was built. I would suggest you add a quick melody using the glockenspiel there though. I also really like the violins in the background starting at 3:21 and the horn at 2:15 because it helps make the song sound less repetitive (and repetition is something that i kind of see, but it's not too bad)
And yea! it sounds great altogether for a 12 min song. You're an awesome composer!
Dear god man...
You should work for Creative Assembly. Im not say that because i like their orchestral scores, but their conductor has won many awards and is one of the best composers in the video gaming business, and i truly think he'd love to have you as a partner.
The choirs sound very good. Actually better than most of the other instruments :P I have some minor quibbles with your timpani, I thin a loud and massive, bassy grand casa (or whatever it was named) sound would be better for this. Anyway, very nice progressions, I like this one. And it's long (since you have two parts of the song too).
Keep up the good work. You get a 9/10 and a five ( 4.39 / 5.00 (+ 0.0048) ).
I really do like this. In fact, I think I will use it. Well, not all of it, but the first minute or so, it fits exactly what I need. The composing of this is phenominal, every note fits perfectly. I love it.
Bloody good job
Very nice work, I really enjoyed this piece, i'm curious though as to whether the Choir sound is a synth or recorded choir you have taken from another clip? if its a synth I'd love to know where it's from.
The choirs are really realistic-sounding synths and they are part of the "SoundScan vol28 Acoustic SynthChoir" collection. I like these choirs because they sound realistic and can be used as staccato as well.
Thanks for your review and your points!
