MH16: Requiem For A Dream

Author Comments

Here's my newest song!
There's actually a story behind this one. I started making a song and i was building on it and suddenly... it sounded familliar. Then i realised i composed a part of Requiem Of A Dream (the real name is ''Lux Aeterna'') by Clint Mansell.
After i realised that i made the song a bit longer, but i couldn't continue eventually, so i just made an end. The end is way too abrupt :P
Anyway, enjoy this short song and please keep in mind that i did not recreate the original song on purpose.


PS: Turn the volume up a bit ;-)

The people have angered me.

Why do I not see any 10's at all? Why do I see a 5? Why do I see people rating this poorly? I love this song, I give it a 10. It may be short, but it's deep. I would use it in the trailer for a series I'm making if it was the kind of song I was looking for. But it is still very nice, I'm adding it to my favorites. Don't listen to the people who score this bad, you're excellent, keep it up!

Thanks :)


empire earth or something like that kinda thing

FairSquare responds:



Interesting little story behind this. It does sound good, just not on the same line of epic. The ending is rather abrupt, and thats why there is no 10-Star for you.

FairSquare responds:

Yep, the ending is way too abrupt. I just couldn't continue the song :-(
Thanks for the review! :D


This was nice. This tune is very dramatic! KAZAH! The only thing i dont like about it is that it doesnt have the kajjillion instruments all going at once like in a proper orcestra, well anyway who cares. You should make a techno song for a change or anything wierd maybe :D
Keep up the good wrk bro :D Peaceout

Believe in the me that belives in you!

Lol umm.. can you review this song for me :D http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/liste n/261831

FairSquare responds:

Haha, i need to practice a lot more before i can let ''kajjillion'' instruments at the same time and all of them playing something different :P
And i already made something weird, check my last previous submission ^^
Well, thanks for the review and i'll see what i can do for you ;-)

Not Bad...

There are a couple of notes that the french horn hits that I'm not sure is actually in the real range of a typical french horn player. Those really really high notes are coming to mind. I play french horn, and it seems like some of those notes are just awfully high for the instrument. I could be wrong of course though.

As a composition, I like it. But I don't love it. It is too repetitive, especially considering how short it is. It really runs the same idea and chord structure over and over for the brief 1:13 of it's existence.

Now that being said, this is a beautiful piece. It sounds quite wonderful, and has a great atmosphere to it. I feel like I should be climbing a mountain, or preparing for a battle when I listen to this. It really has that epic and majestic quality that leads a character to some sort of epic undertaking or conquest.

The percussion is really nicely done to say the least. Very nice indeed, and it simply adds to the atmosphere of this piece.

4/5 and 8/10 overall. Wonderful job here, just not quite great yet.


FairSquare responds:

Yeah, i know it's repetitive. I wanted to add some variation, but for some reason.. i couldn't. I was completely stuck after i realised that i was recomposing a song in stead of composing one.
And i don't know about those Frenchs horns, i don't have any experience with them. I never really thought of the actual range of it :P
And i'm really glad with how the percussion came out too :-)
Well, thanks for the review. I appreciate it! :D
