This is my MAC8 Music to motion entry. I was going to add an orchestral accompaniment, but I just stuck with what I was comfortable with, and I'm really pleased with the emotion and delicacy of the music. I think it reflects the video pretty well (note: those that don't know, this month's audio competition required a composition to accompany a 2 minute video). I'll upload it to youtube a bit later...

I hope whoever listens to this enjoys it. This is the first song I've written that I can perform live on an actual piano. Made using free samples, reaper and finale notepad. Yeah, I'm being a cheap ass to prove you don't need millions of dollars to sound alright.

not bad

if this is the prologue i want to hear the main event, its very forebding, i want to hear more! short but sweet (and the best i've ever heard using notepad, i'm a sibelius user myself)

WritersBlock responds:

Yeah, I've had previous experience with sibelius, and as much as it's awesome, it's not free.
The samples I used weren't the notepad ones, I used a program called reaper for that.
Thanks for the review. I'm glad you liked it.

Nice song

Right. I don't know what this 'Review Request Club' is about but it's probably due to the fact I'm rather new to the classical category of the audio portal. I used to hang out at the dance category all the time, but some songs caught my attention. And now I'm exploring this place.

Very relaxing yet emotional song. Some fancy piano playing as well.
No musician myself, can't be much technical, but it has a nice touch.

5/5 10/10 - Good Job

Thanks. The review request club is a club in the Clubs & Crews forum on the NG BBS. I ask if they can review my submissions, they oblige. Great people in that club...

Mood Music.

What begins as a simple melody invokes a whole range of emotions as it progresses and evolves. It's almost as if the music has a life of its own, starting off unsure of itself, facing challenges and perhaps even overcoming them; however It never quite loses the feeling of trepidation.

Very emotive, very clever.

WritersBlock responds:

At first I wasn't sure who you were, but then I saw the little "M." in the corner.
I'm glad you like this. Now, 18 6 1/2 minute songs might be a little more difficult. =P

Very nice

Excellent sounded piece. Sounded very final fantasy esque. and that's noting but a complement. Love how it built and was so fun of emotion that is very hard to pull off but you did. Well done on creating such a good and complex song :D

WritersBlock responds:

Thanks, love the compliments. I strive to get that emotion in my music, and this one fell into place really well. I'm trying to keep up this emotion in my future projects, and I think it's a great personal challenge, and I really enjoy the composition process, and the rewarding end result. Thanks for the review. I took it all to heart.


This is very heartfelt peice, i thought it was great. I liked the piano isolation throughout. It made the track sound very peaceful and it didnt need anything else in it.

This is a great audio, nice job. Hope to see more from you!! :)

WritersBlock responds:

Thanks. I hope to write more songs like this, and like "Astronaut's Waltz", I've got a few more planned, but I've also got ideas for more electronica type songs, to mix it up a bit. Thanks for your review. I love getting this sort of feedback and interest.
