My Neighbour Totoro (Ambient Remix)

The first thing you'll notice about the song is... it doesn't start like the original! I took the piano thing, then made stuff up for the first minute. :) So if you're looking for the melody, skip to about 1:00 in.

I've spent way too long on something that's not my best work, so I figured I'd just upload it now before anyone started thinking I was actually making progress. :P Three minutes for about two and a half weeks of work.

Enjoy, and review! (beat up on the randomness of the last part, please)


Good work

Nice track, man))) But I'm agree with sdfmusic - the choir needs effects. The instruments can be a little softer and calm. A little more experiments with the sound, maybe...

Lamplighter responds:

Softer, calmer... sounds nice. Although this is supposed to bring a lot more out of the melody and everything. Have you heard the OST? It's so empty sometimes I'd call it experimental something... I guess contrast is what this mix is about. Oh well, I'll definitely work on sound!

Thanks for the review!

Make the choir more ethereal

This is great, but the choir is a real turn-off for me.

I would suggest adjusting attack, throwing some delay, reverb, and panning on it to make it more dynamic and ambient texturing, rather than the midi-ish thing it is now.

Otherwise, great job, I love the percussion and bass interplay.

Lamplighter responds:

Will do, sir! I was focusing on arrangement, and now i see the sound really needs work. I personally hate the choirs I'm stuck with, but hey, when you need a choir it's right there. By attack I assume you're wanting me to slow it down for the choir.... yeah, I'll work with that kind of thing.

Thanks for the review, it's helpful!


lol the movie was weird

Lamplighter responds:

That's anime for you.

a bit different

the movie's music was softer and didn't effisize * dont know how 2 spell that word*
on a spefic instrument 2 much
but it was still good-ish

Lamplighter responds:

Ya, I understand what you mean.

Thanks for the review and for being vague when you meant to say this sucked! :P

Heh-heh. :)

Remember to clean out those black smudges! ;)
