Light Up The Darkness

It's easy to use sound effects and such to create creepy atmosphere, but I wanted to do that by just using strings. The light tearing through darkness, a long and perilous journey through the heart of hell, but in the end the light prevails and hope survives for yet another day.


Great concept and use of strings!

Hy popraz!

I understand your aim how you wanted to use the strings in the beginning building up the tension and the dark, creepy atmosphere. I think you've succseded with it: it really creates an uneasy feeling and imagineing some scenes that would fit it really brings a dark tone.

The ending was nice too. For my taste the electric-synth like effect in the background was not really fitting to the overal string heavy concept but thats my personal tast. The beat was interesting - a good choice definitely.

If I could share an idea with you: next time if you are up to create songs like this, try to play with the pitch of the strings. You really can achieve an insane, mad, fearfull effect with it. I've tried it and it was really uneasy to listen to since it sounded crazy as hell but that was the point.

So good track 9/10

Thank you very much for the review and the advice. I never expected anyone to fave this, I was especially interested to see if I captured the right mood. I'll keep experimenting until I get to the complete madness of it. Again, thank you for the advice.

wierd song decent not perfect

It was decent but some of the sounds just sounded off to me, however at the end when the ''light wins'' and the beat comes in it sounds very good. I wouldn't mind u submitting a song more based of the beat near the end. I enjoyed that part the most, Keep up the good work.

Thanks for the review. Well, the beat came from something else I was working on, so a submission based on it is possible if I manage to finish it. The off sounds were kind of the purpose in the beginning, I wanted the dark to be represented by extreme dissonance, and I knew it would not be pleasant, but gradualy the melody becomes more clear and it all comes together in harmony when the light wins.
