I made this for a school project: Choose a song from the 1800s and tell about it, make an own 1800-themed song or remake a song. We chose to remake "Swanlake". and since I was the guy with the stuff, I was to do that, let's see tomorrow if I disappointed them or not :P

I know there's some parts that could be worked more on, but deadline is soon and I'm tired, so I'll leave it like this until maybe later.

Comment plz!

This is very nice!

Can't say I recall the original, but this sounds quite nice. I like the diversity here, even though there isn't a huge battalion of sounds. I love the pan flute, it sounds quite realistic. The organ is spectacular, I feel like you could have brought that part out a little bit more. The brass sounded great, as did the drums. I applaud your use of dynamics and tempo here, not many people notice as much with that as they should. You definitely did a nice job with this! Keep up the good work!


Nermio responds:

Thanks! The dynamics were actually one of those things that required the most time to get right. As for the songs length and choice of instruments, I had planned for a more euphoric section with lots of instruments covering the whole audio spectrum, but I had to cut it short and small because of the approaching deadline.
Still I think that most of this turned out pretty good, because I wanted a dynamic song made of crossovers between the small, quiet and more careful parts and then the big full-orchestra sections.

Glad you liked it! And thanks again!

Well Done

It's pretty hard to remake such a well known song and get credit for it. Especially when you concider how many hardcore and amazing orchestras have done amazing things with this. Still, it's great training.

Pretty solid, I don't know about that choice of pan flute though. Could have probably used some more string layers. Never the less I like it. Reminds me of loom.

Nermio responds:

Thanks! Well, we discussed the project before I started and we agreed that I shouldn't use too many instrument layers and such and not to make it necessarily big, becouse we wanted to retain the melancholy feel of the original, thus use a melody line with one or two backing instruments, and then make crescendos and fortes at certain places to make it effectful...

thanks for reviewing!
