I can't say it's the BEST song I've heard but I do enjoy it from a sense of nostalgia. The strings clash a bit in the beginning but I think I like that mostly because I grew up on SNES RPG's with that oh so required tower dungeon thing. XD If you're going for that old devilish creepiness sound then I think you've got it! I'd recommend throwing an organ of sorts in there though, that always amps up the creepy factor. All personal opinions mind you. ^_^ Keep workin' hard!!! ^_^
Thanks for the input. I did want it to seem very devilish and weird at first. The "clashing" is meant to be there. I wanted to let the 'thinness' of the texture make the chord kinda uncertain. The dissonance seems even creepier because it's just two notes only a half step apart, with nothing else to reference from, with only one single note before it. I would add an organ, and I may do so on another piece, but I wanted a string only piece, and, for some reason, felt this was the best. It was a decision made on the fly, but I like it. I think the organ will be used more for his failure later, to add in the anger of his own failure, on top of this and a lot else that happens in the story up to that point.
Again, thanks for the input. ^_^
