This is a prototype...I might just scrap this.....your votes will tell me what I do! (On a side note.....I really like how I made the piano sound!)

If people think this is good, I'll write some more, give this a tad more attention, and get back to work on the Raconok City project.


"Deep in the heart of the Wharf lies she who dubs herself the first and original - the sea mother, the Riverside Wharf. Some be callin' her a pub and some be callin' her a tavern. I'll deck every last one of em', for she is too noble to be smeared with them foul words. The Riverside Wharf has been around since the beginning. She was a popular gal in the twenties, turned 'nto a speakeasy in the thirties, an' served her country's soldiers in the forties! She be slowly growing old, however. She gets more and more filthy each passin' decade. No upkeep, no maintenance. Th' owner these days don't do shit but fill his grubby pig belly with fish guts n' booze. But she needs it, she needs it bad or she's gonna die. And it'll be a real shame, too. Too many fishermen have told stories around th' fireplace - legendary ones, like the Great Catch of '65 or Rick Reelin' Ramey. Too much history has passed within the confines of her doors. Things them bloody Kine couldn't even begin to comprehend..."

- Robert "Blue Bayou" Lamont, Gangrel

I would

Put maybe some brass in it. Very mellow brass, french horn and the like.

Not bad

I think you need to tone down the strings a LITTLE bit, they overpower the piano way too much. The strings, while sounding nice, should do a little bit more than play straight up chords on your next project... Things sound nicer that way.

I don't quite get the feel of an abandoned fish wharf through this song... It doesn't quite correlate with the description you've given. It's a nice song, but doesn't feel like it matches the subject matter.

As well, this ain't bad, just needs some polishing.

TreborLocke responds:

In my defence, a lot of music has been written in a very similar style. Martin O'Donnell comes to mind (Composer of the music for 'Halo'), John Adams, and Phillip Glass. All well known composers and even they will just take block chords and improvise above them. Even Nobou Uematsu uses chords with suspensions as sole pieces of music. I do need to bring the strings down however, they are not just playing 'straight up chords' as there is movement. It is just very subtle.
