sounds adventurous. i love it!
it feels like your walking through an unending desert, i liked it
There are a lot of things that i like about this song, but some things i don't like too. I'll start off with the negative things.
The notes that are played by the pizzicato strings (what kind of strings btw. Cello?) on 00:38 and 00:39 sound discordant. They just don't fit. On 01:28 and 01:29 it happens again. There are some more notes that sound wrong/are discordant, but i don't feel like telling them all because you probably won't fix 'em anyway :P
Also, it sounds like that pizzicato string is distorting sometimes. Especially at that section after 01:25.
And that percussion intrument that you use just plays the same notes as the piano. It's good to layer your synths sometimes, but i think you should've left that percussion instrument out or actually use it as percussion. Which brings me to the next subject: the percussion. You haven't used any kind of percussion (except that instrument that plays with the piano, but that's not used as percussion but as a lead). I think a bit of percussion could really add to this. It will make the song feel a bit faster and more fluent. The type of percussion should be very light, like bongos, congas and shakers.
That was the negative part of my review. Here comes the positive part.
Man, i love that piano! The delay on it is perfect and it just sounds sweet. What i also love are those violins you used in the background sometimes. It gives the song a more driving feel and they just add so much to the song. The pizzicato string is really good too, it really gives the song a foundation to build on. The little bell sounds that you used and the woosh cymbal sounds (don't know how to call them :P) are incredible and add a little taste of mystery and magic.
You'll notice that the negative part of my review is larger than the positive part, but don't think that that means that i didn't like the song. It just takes more words to explain what i mean when i'm negative then when i'm positive, but i guess you'll understand that.
Conclusion: This song is really good, but there are some errors that stop me from giving it a ten.
I hope this review was helpful and if you have any questions because of what i wrote, just PM me ;-)
Oh man thank you for this review, Respect :D. Hmmm.... I have no idea how im going to respond. Lol. Those pizzicato strings are basically a whole bunch of string instruments playing in pizzicato lolz. I listened to the song quite loud with headphones on, and I just spotted some slight distortion with those pizzicato strings. I dont really understand why you say they are discordant. I mean they don't create diminished/augmented chords. I suppose they dont take the normal chord route so It must be a personal taste.
Oh yeah the percussion tehe. Well if you listen closely there is a sort of really heavy crash symbol in the background. Should have turned it up a bit. I guess i could have tried adding some rythmn with bongo's, claives etc but with having the bell, all the wooshy sounds (LOL) etc, it wouldn't have the same effect. Also By not having drums, the song seems more laid back, which was what I was going with, Im happy with the minimal percussion but I can understand If your ear wants more.
Well your review was really good and it made me knuckle down and listen to my song in real depth. Thanks peace out :D
Sounds like an endless road.
Like somebody is journeying, and going and going to their target, but it seems so far away. Anyways, I kinda felt something in my soul when I listened to this song, something was moving.
Good job man, keep it up!
one of your best
