And I'm back in black! Long time no see, my mates! I think most of you guys don't even remember me anymore, and I don't blame you. It's been a long time since my last music uploaded here, and that empty gap between my submissions has happened mostly because of my lack of free time to compose anything near decent =/

I don't know if I will continue to submit my audio with the same pace I did, but who knows?

Anyway, good to be (kinda) back ^^

Hope you enjoy.

P.S.: Based on a raw MIDI file by Jeff MasterBee. He is a great musician, and it's a shame he doesn't have an account here at Newgrounds =/

Nice start! You may be on to something here.

I like where you are going with this, and I think you may have some classical potential (I know you've got the whole Trance/Dance thing more or less in the bag). This piece is particular interesting in that the production value is so good for a first classical submission. Usually the artists get better at writing before they realize that straight-midi strings really don't sound all that hot.

So, I'll throw some suggestions at you now. First, very nice sounds. Good production value there. The piano was a little goofy, not sure if you wanted it that fluffy, but overall it was well mixed, and the verb covered up the strings enough to pass fairly well. You could alter the velocity of some of the midi instruments a little to make it closer to a live performance, but there are all sorts of little tips and tricks that you'll figure out, I could spend all day describing them.

Everything follows the chord progression fairly well, and it is pleasing to listen to, which is more than half the battle. You don't have a definitive melody though. You have an alberti-bass-like figure in the guitar/bass, but that really serves as accompaniment, and you almost have a melodic line on accented beats later on in the song. I would suggest starting with a melody and building everything around that. It can be hard to do things the other way around.

In summary, it is pleasant, peaceful, and enjoyable to listen to. You could stand to work on a few things, but hey, this is a nice piece all by itself. I suppose I could have said more, but all of these things are really up to you to decide. Do whatever sounds good to you, it's your music. I would not have reviewed this if I had not thoroughly enjoyed it, and thought that you have potential. If you've got any questions, hit me up.

4/5, 8/10

really nice

i actually found nothing wrong with this.

other than what the other said about it being empty. its goods.

not really a problem is that some parts just get too repetitive for a slow song.

there are other parts were i would have changes the octave but all in all its good.


Really all i can say. i love it all the way through.
Definately my kind of music. Keep up The Great work.

Needs a bit more to it.

Not bad, but it's a little mindless and could use a few more interesting progressions to add some distinction. Could also use a bit more direction, but otherwise it's pretty good.

I think it's a little bit empty at some parts, but I'm trying to improve it already. Thnx for the review.
