I can't review if my comp can't raise the volume high enough to listen. I raised standard volume to max, then I got out my winamp, and then I used my last resort- a pair of megawoofers and an amp that's meant to be used in an open courtyard at least 500 square feet, not a 100 square foot room. 0 stars for being unable to hear anything but silence.

im sorry for the inconvenience I am currently working on this problem it is an issue with my "level setting". but to tell you the truth I can hear this perfectly fine with my cheap apple earphones. IDK


The song absolutely touched me. ;)
I love it! <3 :D

Thanks =)

Toooo Quieeet!!!

Ok, I had to turn up the speakers through the onboard volume, and the speaker volume and winamp to hear this enough to start reviewing. Normally, that would leave my ears bleeding. Not straining to catch the details.

Worse, the song is muffled, as in, I can't hear the intricacies of the violin playing. While I understand that they are supposed to be in harmony, they're played in such a way as to dampen the detail and give me a very dry, flat sound.

I really am not catching the feeling here, there isn't enough contrast between the elements. They aren't sharp enough. Comparatively, listening to this is like looking at a blurry picture. You can get that there are details, but you really have to squint to work them out.

That's a bad thing.

The tune is nice enough, but could be a lot better. The piano could be played with a lot more depth and dynamic. And definitely with more passion, more feeling. Right now it just sounds like a bored person plunking at a keyboard. All stiff backed and with a dour expression on their face.

Give the piece a bit more power, more feeling, bring clarity into the violin playing, contrast the elements a bit more, make sure that we can hear each element distinctly if we want to while giving a harmonious whole.

Not a faint whine.

Not too bad, but you still have a long way to go.

Cheers, Krayon.

Ahhhh counterpoint ^__^

Absolutely beautiful. I can't find a thing wrong. Fav'd definately. Usually I bitch a lot, but i have one complaint....MAKE IT LONGER!!! its beautiful, i wanted more of the nirvana you inspired :D

kevinkt responds:

Thank you for your generous comment. I intend on expanding on it when I can and when I feel ready. thanks again

very moving.

your work here is great, but you may want to label this as a classical song, not new wave.
As far as the song goes i think that it is very refreshing to hear a more complex progression of chords that so many newgrounds users often lack. your samples sounded great as well. I can realistically say that this could sell for money. You should think about sending it to film makers.

kevinkt responds:

Thanks for your comment. I have thought of doing film but I am just trying building up my skills maybe after a while. thanks again.
