I Like It...
I could really see this in the ice world levels in Super Mario. Really man, it would fit those so well.
You created a nifty little atmosphere with the chimes, bells, marimba, and strings. They mesh so well together, and really the strings have the perfect timbre to them.
It sounds like you used a pan flute in a spot or two. But I could be wrong. If not, then maybe think about adding a little pan flute if you go back and work on this. Because I think a pan flute would sound wonderful in this piece.
I think the major shortcoming in this piece is how short it is. Because it is not even close to being an acceptable length for a song. As a loop though, this would be pretty decent.
Vertically I don't think there is much work to do. The overall mix of instruments is spot on and rich in color. I like everything you did here except for how short you made it.
4/5 and 8/10 overall. Nice work here bud.
It definitely gives images of ice and crystals an exploration. My one point to bring up is that in the end, everything is building up, but it all competes with each other and parts are drowned out a little. That might be either an EQ or Mixing problem, but other than that little detail it's a really great sounding theme.
Yeah I agree that the end is very drowned, I believe it is a problem with my mixing lolz. I am working on the end because I am not too satisfied with the ending either. Thanks again for the comment!
i think it would be good in probley a ice level in a flash game or something like that, good job
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
