good ideas!

very well put together! i can certainly appreciate your talented ability to construct your songs, making them rich and full of intriguing movement. the behaviour of this particular piece moves in a very private nature i feel. a very reserved piece, serious and triumphant, almost a righteous heir to its musical body.
you sure like your tambourines!!!!! LOL!

it reminds me of asia certianly, but not until its 30 secs in. :D
i do so like these little oriental pieces ^ ^
good job, perhaps to improve you could smooth the transition between instruments, instead of switching from one part to another. ^ ^ good work dude!


Wow..this was a really good ambient song... Let you have time to relax and stuff and think about things lol. I really liked all the percussions you used and the mellowness. some moments coulda been worked with more, but overall the mood was good for the song. think you can check out my latest track elysium(remix)?
9/10. 5/5

=] the famous dj scoop! shit man, thanks for stopping by :) love that head up track u made.
yeah haha funny story with this song, i made it but i never exported it as a midi. Then i screwed up my computer so FL wouldn't open and I couldn't export it, then i reformatted and thought i lost it but somehow all my files were still there and I found this, but my drum sounds had been deleted so i reinstalled FL and im stuck with a demo till i buy a new one haha.
=] but ill def check out your stuff bro, i prolly oughta start writing reviews. so you'll be numba 1!
thx much again bro for the feedback!

Very well done.

Well, you've really captured the moment with this song. If I'm not mistaken, this piece is very much East meets West. The oriental parts of this song definitely has that Chinese feel to it. It was a good choice, because the time period that type of music was used was a rather peaceful time. I'll also note the theme is very "peaceful farmland-ish" since that type of music is mostly used for folklore.

In a way, this piece is when dream meets folklore. It doesn't tell any particular story, but it definitely sets the stage for a story to take place. "Turtle" does seem a little inappropriate, because this song focuses mostly on dreamy moods and ancient Chinese settings than an actual object.

Still, 10 out of 10 for creating a fantastic piece. The title is mismatched, but it is of little consequence as it does not effect the visual this piece so strongly produces.

DjRin responds:

If you ever saw Kung Fu Panda, the turtle/sensei character is what I was thinking about when I named it the turtle. But yeah, this does seem like it could have had a broader title. = ] but im glad you dig this piece bro! in fact i think ill go loop it up right now!
take care mon
