Firefly: Love and War-E!09

Author Comments

Fireflies have a relatively short lifespan. Within 3 months, they are born, fly, mate and die. In between, they fight for their chance to mate. In some species both the male and female use bio-luminescence. The male firefly flashes a blinking pattern while flying by to attract a female mate....she answers him with a short, but steady glow as she is usually hidden on nearby vegetation. At the same time, the male is heading off other males, fighting for his mate. Each species have their own blinking combos. This is a casually tribal, raw, melodic song of Firefly: Love and War. Peace Yo! -EMUZIN

Great but the drums are still a bit too loud. I would suggest holding the drums back until about :29 with the cymbals and then bringing it up to a crescendo. Then later on you could bring the drums down. Also consider extending it. The song is called Love and War, but wheres the love? All I can hear is the war. You should add a softer part. Great song though!

Hey, thanks for the review. Sometimes Love can resemble War when it is lust...remember in the act of flirting to mate ...the male is also in kaotic flying patterns trying to knock out the competition and you have al little bit of both going on...the chorus or as you put it : at 29 secs when the cymbals and the black keys come more into play is where the actual love and mating takes place....oooh. Kinda Lightning in a bottle
