Three musical vignettes played by four computer-generated brass instruments.

1) War
2) Peace
3) Playfulness



Like most of your pieces, this one has a much lower score than it deserves. I love the bit from 2:55 to 3:30, it has a good momentum.

Mmh... not quite classical

This sounds a lot more like videogame music than classical. Perhaps it could use a relocation?
It was an interesting three songs... though the music sounds very plain. Spice it up and send it over to the vg music section: You'll probably see 8s and 9s on the reviews!

Hmm, I don't know. Personally, I don't see how it would be "videogame" music, since I doesn't loop and wasn't featured in/isn't about a videogame. Aside from obvious things like remixes of famous videogame tunes and songs consisting of bleeps/blorps (like that stuff that M dot Strange listens to on his Youtube videos), I don't even know how to define the "videogame" genre of music. I don't think this is it, because this actually has a written musical score and is playable (with the exception of those high notes at the end that I added in as an afterthought, which would be playable only on trumpets).

Heck, if I had a decent recording device and knew how to edit sound, I could play all of the four parts myself, combine them (3 parts on euphonium, 1 on tuba), and upload a live version of this song to Newgrounds. I'm not sure what you mean by "spice it up", but please feel free to give me some ideas in a reply to one of my news posts. The sound texture isn't very rich, because I basically don't know a thing about using Reason or any of those programs (nor do I own any). I simply wrote the music in Finale, and made the best mp3 I could from that.

As for whether this is "classical" or not, this certainly isn't from the Classical Period (Mozart, Beethoven), but Newgrounds seems to have a wider definition of classical than that and I don't know what its limits are. I just submit everything I do to classical because it can be played by "classical" instruments and isn't jazz or rock. If there was a folk music section on NG, many of my songs would probably go there instead.

Anyway, thanks for the review.
