Hey, I don't see this as any major breakthrough in my compositional techniques, but I just felt I needed to submit something to show diversity in my music, from the occational wartune, to the goofy songs while sticking to the same groups of instruments.

You were only wrong about one thing, and that is this: I would consider this as the best song I've heard from you, and that is saying a lot. This is definently a major breakthrough.
Keep it up!

Go with what the guy below me says

He's completely right, this could be a very good piece. It's a very moving melody. In my opinion something that could make it better would be a climax. I feel as if their should be a crescendo of strings playing the melody near the end, only perhaps the 1st violins could play an octave higher.

I'm just amazingly flabergasted

Classical music has always touched the souls of many, and well i feel it touching many more in the future. I have replayed this song more times than i can count, and the method to your madness it truly absurd and i believe that if u continue your songwriting it will progress to higher heights i have also developed a low toned drum beat which goes well into your mix. This song has much much room for potential and have filled a but a small space, for i think can be built upon into creating a skyscraper of a masterpiece.

Hello !

First of all, i would like to apologize for the delay. I did received your PM, but well, my computer was broken down, and i was busy and all that jazz.

Let's see, then.

As stated MaestroRage, the violins really are heart-breaking. They could have been introduced less suddenly, though. You know, make kind of a fade-in of the violins. Also, i think a little more reverb on the solo violin wouldn't hurt, too.

Nothing to say about the piano, though. The moment it comes in really take one's heart, without even breaking the action.

The ending could have used more reverb, too. It's always cool when the instruments keep on sounding when the piece ends.

That's all i can think at the moment. Still a great piece . Keep 'em coming, dude !

Touching in the mind.

Seems like you've got the catchy melody, though not played repetitively but it's just a phase where listener can catch what your story. I think choir might help this more epic somehow.

However, imho, this is good enough to be used in the film. More than enough. :)
