If you're anything like me, then you love boss music. It's face paced, dark, and epic (well, the good ones anyways). And that's what I tried to emulate with this song (keyword: tried. Let me know if I hit the mark or failed miserably in a review!)

The song itself is 2 loops and an added end, since it's too awesome for just one go around (IMHO). I love fast-paced, exciting classical music - even more-so when paired with modern electric instruments. Hence, Boss Time!

How I made the song: As with all my music, I suck at it (epic noob). So I pieced it together as a Midi using Noteworthy and then ported it into Reason, & tweaked. I then went back & forth between the two until I polished off this 'finished' product (but there's always room to improve). I'll be honest - I really don't know a whole lot about music. I couldn't tell you what notes are what, give an example of a happy or sad chord, or anything else for that matter. But I know what I like to hear & I learn by doing, and I LOVE epic music (E.S. Posthumus FTMFW!), so I tried to emulate that here today.

This is my first project to share publicly that I started on my own (as opposed to being inspired by another song), so be gentle! But by all means, let me know what you like or don't like - I'd love to get better so let me hear your thoughts/opinions on instruments used, transition, too uninspired, etc. I'm thirsty for any advice and/or critique I can get. Thanks all!

No, you definitely hit the mark

I especially like the segment that starts at 1:10 and 2:50. It might not be my absolute favorite boss music ever, but it's not bad for a start. Definitely liked the use of the bells, gives a very ominous feeling. There was one instrument that I wasn't fond of. The synth that plays alone at about 1:30. I'm not saying it wasn't a good choice, there are several parts of the song where it sounds really epic and I absolutely love your use of that instrument, but there were also parts where it didn't fit as well. Particularly that part around 1:30 where it's playing alone, that didn't sound good. I wish I had the terminology to describe what it is I didn't like about it, but alas I don't. I guess when it's alone, it sounds a little too "buzzy" if that makes any sense. One other problem that I saw with the song is that it doesn't loop. It's listed as a classical loop, but it doesn't loop. It's a boss theme, it has to loop! Well, in my opinion it should. In a real boss battle, nobody wants the song stopping in the middle of the battle, and I doubt the battle will last exactly 3:20, the length of the song. Also, the song wasn't very classical. It has classical elements, but uses a lot of synth. It is possible to have a really epic boss song that is entirely classical. Just listen to some boss themes from Kingdom Hearts, for example. On the other hand, if this is what you were going for, that's fine too, I just wouldn't label it as classical. Anyways, this was a good boss song, I hope you make more!

Thanks again for another amazing review.

This song shows just how much of a noob I am at making music. The other song (Trwyty2) was inspired by a song on NG, so I had a basis for the instruments and structure. This was my first attempt to try something from scratch.

I added it to classical because a friend who had spent much more time on NG said it should probably go here.

And the labeling it a loop was, once again, because of my noobishness. The song IS a loop, but this version loops it twice and then just fades off... making just a long, repetitive song I didn't understand the concept at the time, and so here we are.

And that part at 1:30, I also hate. I just had to find a way to bridge the end to the beginning to make the loop complete, and that's all I could come up with at the time, and just got frustrated and left it at that.

But I'm glad I did it though, because I've learned so much about music composition since I uploaded this song, mainly due to awesome reviews like yours.

Thank you very much.

WOW....

I LOVE IT, its one of the best epic songs ive came across yet, im not sure if its classical but it doesent rely matter, I LOVE IT!


Auth responds:

Thanks for the great review! The more time goes on, the more I regret putting the song here. Granted it has a lot of classical elements, but there's also a lot of synth that I think the listener identifies with more.

You did fairly well.

I've heard some better one, but this was pretty darn good,man. if you really want to get into awesome classical type epicness, listen to some Castlevania. its all over newgrounds audio portal. the repetitive noises did seem like a boss battle, and for some reason it just didn't fit completely. it is still suspenseful though. I love your talent, you have done pretty well, and far better than I. I would suggest listening to : http://www.new (take this out) grounds.com/audio/listen/149719
It May help you, it has that classic theme with some really good ambiance. either way. ( don't ban me, I'm just promoting newgrounds.com in a constructive way to the artist >_<)

anyway man, its was very well done.
