Fusion of multiple genres. I put it here for now on. Misc cus i dunno I felt like it.
I changed a few things around actually, if u dont hear it get better speakers O.o. JK. but i did raise the quality of this and also changed around lot of the things in the EQ :/ imo this is sexier.

I intended this to bring ideas of a wasteland to your head. the songs about two guys walking, traveling, they are just aimlessly traveling in this wasteland. The two guys are the piano and then strings. Those are the personalities of the two men. If you can visualize what they look like based on the musical part, more points for you.

But someone said that it brought to their heads something different.
"i get pictures of run down areas of small towns very easily, red brick houses and office buildings. As if certain parts of Seattle were dropped into the middle of Nevada or something."
And for that, I leave this to your imagination. This could be a song that you listen to when your high, use it as a lullaby to fall asleep, or whatever.
I really would enjoy to listen to what this song brings to all the listeners here on NG. I liked reading JC-MOFO's interpretation of the song so much and like seeing it myself that I quoted him here. Share your ideas in a review, reviews are the only way authors on NG actually improve. I know there is a community out there somewhere, but I just can't find it.

realy nice

nice drum part. the song's all toned down and it reminds me of sonic kinda. really good

Since you asked so personally.

This is quite good. I didn't realize that it had been a saxophone before, but that's not your fault, I've never actually heard a decent saxophone sound come out of a music making program. Maybe I'm just a little harsh on them because it's my instrument of choice. I'll get the praise out of the way so I can get to what goes through my head, then finally to what final tweaks could be made.
I find the piano to be a considerable improvement to the entire piece, the guitar bit is great, still. I'm not sure if it's my imagination or not but the guitar actually sounds a little bit better this time. I went back and listened to the old one, but I can't quite put my finger on why, maybe I just really enjoy it.
I don't think it was there before, I know I didn't notice it if it was, but there's some sort of strange bassy synthy sound that punctuates the first note of the piano each time and it sounds great. Now for the string bit...I'm pretty sure you didnt change it but when it comes in, the entire focus of the tune isn't lost like before. In the first song the sax and guitar could live together without getting in eachothers way, but the sax clashed badly to my ear when paired with the strings. Now everything is very harmonious. Now a break for something completely different:
I'm back in the desert with my two characters, they're actually characters from a story I wrote. They're also from several stories I havn't written yet but I'm losing myself here. The older brother in the worn brown jacket starts talking to his younger, yet taller brother, who is dressed finely in a three piece suit, this conversation obviously starts with the piano. He's talking about fresh green vegitation and clear blue water and things of life, in comparison to the desolate desert and broken road in which they walk. He trails off because he doesn't think his brother is listening to him. Bailie (Younger yet taller brother in the suit) responds suddenly, sharing his own thoughts. Roy's mood is raised and they begin talking about being out of the desert and share optimism. Then the clip plays again.
The fifth note of the piano doesn't play out, or if it does, it's far too subtle. So almost exactly at .41. This could be design but it sounds terribly out of place when everything else in the piece rings out except for the strings including every other note the piano plays.
At .58 there are those four notes that trail off into lower tones. My mind keeps trying to turn them into chords. Chords that decrease in volume as they decrease in tone. I think it would be an interesting thing to play with. I hope you enjoy this review, and you're welcome for the last one. I'm glad that you are one of those people that is not only willing but eager to improve themselves and thier work. Kudos.

steelside responds:

:D making a song is like havin a baby! you gotta raise it until its all grown up... i dunno where im goin with this analogy, stop me at any time...
i think the reason that note isnt ringing out on the piano (or not sounding like it is) is because its like getting masked by other parts playing notes and its getting lost in a chord.. i could make that note just a little.. i dunno more sustain just a little... hmm... what do you mean by "tone"? lower tones, like lower pitches? hmmm i think thats because the guitar is playing the same notes in a lower octave (im sneaky like that) ill see what sounds good and get back to ya.
