Agreeing with rocky about everything...
Except you probably should write sober. Writing under the influence generally means that the music is an effect of the substance, not an effect of your own brilliance, and you are quite brilliant.
Still great man. You should try writing some more fully romantic stuff, you'd be great at that.
10 stars from me.
co nice to listen to:) made my day to hear such lovely music^^
(come and check out my audio submissions here on youtube, u can give me tips on what to do and not do:) genius^^)
This has a nice, upbeat, kind of joyful feel to it that could energize you, or brighten your day even. It's uplifting and has a somewhat inspirational feel.
Mosaic is a good word to describe this. It's a bunch of imagery flowing together, and I like that. I would've liked it to have a uniform theme though, a melody to hold it all together, that is present throughout to provide familiarity and a comfortable sense of resolution. That's just me though.
The instrumentation sounds large but I think it's actually simple. There's quite a percussion line to drive the piece rhythmically, but the melody lies in what sounds like it could be a synth violin solo (if so, I wonder what VST you used for it...). There are other synthetic harmonies in the background which provide nice mood for the piece. Also the synth choirs were a nice touch.
Overall this does have a very video game feel, as it should! Techno? Definitely. Neo-romantic? A bit, yeah. Epic sountrack? Aided by that choir stuff. New-age rock--the chord progressions lend to that.
It's a nice blending of styles that turned out well. :] Maybe you should have more hangovers. :P
best of luck with the next piece,
P.S. 8 is a good score from me. ;]
