An instrumental piece I've been working on lately! Mostly piano with orchesteral background, with a part of cello and viola. Just listen and enjoy :)
Made in FL studio 8.

Edit: fixed a lil misadjustment in the latest orchestral chord progression, as well as a lil bit bumped volume.

Shinrog responds:

More like Lonely.

Pretty cool

I can really tell you know alot about music theory from this. The chord progessions were nice, and I liked how you had the string parts in the beginning, but when the strings went down to playing half notes and whole notes it didn't feel like there was very much going on. Usually when I see people try to make classical tracks, they bring in too many elements from other genres, but from this, you definitely seem to know what you are doing. I enjoyed it, and found it rather relaxing.

Shinrog responds:

your review made me laught! (yes, LAUGH)
I know NOTHING about music theory, and never had any lessons as a matter of fact.
Just tried to make it the best I can with what I've got.
Note that mostly I'm making dance tracks, not classical, but I really like classic music as well, especially when it's well mastered (very few of these on NG unfortunatly).

Pleasant <3

Nicely arranged - the instruments really compliment one another well. Somber, emotional...it was nice to listen to. It almost seems like a musical metaphor for life, although I could be overthinking it a bit, haha. 9/10, 5/5 :]

Shinrog responds:

It could be better, with more instruments...but the VST I used made alot of difficlties, so I couldn't add a violin and an orchestral kit of bells and drums -.-'
BTW this song is inspired by the clouds, not the human life :)
