i personally think that the drums, which were good, overpowered the piano at the start of the song. the same for the other effects up until about halfway through the song, they all seem to mask the piano and strings.
other than that its a great piece of work.
making a depressing song doesnt just involve minor piano and strings I am afraid - also the glitch ruined the atmosphere. Lillium is sad - doesnt have to be depressing - it just has to invoke within you a profound sense of loss. And I am just not feeling it in this one - it seems to be struggling with itself in what it is it want to be.
Good attempt though.
Not sure where the comparison of lilium came from but ok. Thanks for the review.
Piano is emotion-evoking - it can be happy or deeply somber. Therefore, great choice keeping with the piano. The electronic sounds are a really great touch; they don't interfere, but add interest. I love the dramatic turn-around @ 3 min., and the song as a whole is well-balanced. This is probably one of my favorite pieces from you.
Glad to hear you liked it.
Sounds like something out of a movie
One of those scense where the hero hits rock botom but then gets back up on his feet and saves the day.... or something like that lol
Loved the inconsistincy (spelling?) of the beat, wouldnt be the same without it.
Thanks, I get alot of ideas out of this song.
Wow, great job on this one. It's difficult to believe that your prominent genre isn't this one because you really did a great job on this song.
First off, the drums: holy crap nice.
I do agree that the buildup was a bit long but it worked well for me. The choice of pads/strings you used really fit the song and the piano pulled everything together.
At 2:45, wow everything got 10x better. I was really amazed. The theme you've got going and have described for the song really showed through and you just nailed it in the end.
I think you should shorten the intro a tad and this would be really epic. I also think you should put a sweet (a bit more complicated) piano riff in the end buildup.
Great song, fav'd, and good luck in the competition!
Well on the note of the long intro I wanted to give it a bit of length to convey more of time passing by and nothing amazing happening in your life. Then at 2:45 everything takes a turn and well if I kept this sound through out the sound it wouldn't convey sorrow as much as it did earlier on.
Thank you for the review.
