Minor key is the best!
This isn't a dirge--not quite solemn enough--but it is certainly very dark. The synth was very well done and professional sounding. I definately agree that a full orchestration of this piece would be simply stunning
Was half expecting for this to cheese out and turn into a techno dance track, but turns out this is serious. Wouldn't think of hearing this in the AP, but here it is. Good use of synth, not out of place from any professionally done synth track. I'm quite surprized this hasn't been used in any submissions. But as far as being a funeral dirge, it doesn't seem all that solem. If it were fully orchestrated I'd listen to it while I write in my classical playlist. Its good, very good, I'll give you that.
Thanks. Maybe I'll do a full orchestration of it at some point. I didn't really think it was a dirge either, but everyone who heard it said it was. So I figured that meant something. :p
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
