Well this is new.

Different sound because I'm trying different things.



I love this piece, as usual... very relaxing and delicate!

SolusLunes responds:

Definitely so. :D


This is quite nicely done. Working with haprs in the past myself, i can see the beauty of that nice harp line in the background. The strings are very nicely done, they have a nice ambient and cool feel to them. The main sound i heard, a flute or clarinet, was also very nicely played (:P) and EQ'ed, if any was done at all.

Another nice one from Solus. By the way, is this in 3/4 time? I can't tell for sure.

10/10 and 5/5. Nice work. :P

SolusLunes responds:

The main instruments were a flute and a piccolo. :D

Not too much eq on the flute, just a little bit of warmth. And yes, it is in 3/4 time. Another thing new for me, really :D

Very nice,

Calm, relaxing feel. I love it.

SolusLunes responds:

Me too. Glad you liked it! :D

Good stuff

This piece overall does create a peaceful atmosphere, as the other reviewers mentioned. I find that the sudden key changes keep the listener on his toes, not allowing him or her to become complacent. The ending seems to create a sense of suspension (like the other shoe is about to drop) very much as the key changes do.

There's a certain complexity about this piece - the choice of instrument and much of the harmonic content suggest a relaxing, consonant atmosphere, yet the modulations and the ending create a sense of suspense and unpredictability.

Overall, great work!


SolusLunes responds:

Ah, it's a delightful feeling when someone else gets the blend I worked so hard to put in there- all of the instruments and chords are there to give a serene, peaceful feeling, but if you dig just that little bit deeper, you can hear the suspense, the bit of dissonance, the tiniest seed of chaos.

I'm glad you liked it too! :D


Hey, long time no review! Beautiful choice of instruments. I love the harp in the background throughout, it helps keep the piece together without large gaps. I really like the use of colorful chords- it creates a mystical, serene sound.

I'd try extending the final chord out a bit, and have it fade out more gradually. Other than that, all I can suggest is that you keep experimenting with new sounds because it's creating some beautiful music!

SolusLunes responds:

The harp is exactly what I needed during the endstages of production for this song- without it, I thought the song was going absolutely nowhere. It ties everything together so well.

The chords were truly fun, but I think the best part (and that which I'm most proud of), is the harmony between the flutes and piccolo.

In any case, I will have to review some of your musics nao :D

As far as continuing experimenting- I've never stopped. :D
