Rendering this at a higher bitrate (current's 128) would take years on my computer.

Been working on this for a couple hours. Nothing special, just some simple melody I wanted to work with.



The piano loop is really nice and the background music sounds good as well.

The cymbal at 0:52 (and later at 1:38) sounds a bit strange. Not only the sound itself but also the little echo seems to be a bit out of place. But the addition of the drums are a good idea. It was a bit unexpected after the intro, but they fit very well into the song.

The vocals are a nice addition, if only there where more vocals than just this short part. And just like the cymbals, the little echo effect doesn't really fit there. It sounds more like the song suddendly jumps there.

Yeah, the crash I chose is not very good and I misconfigured the delay on it.

Thanks for your review <3

Why did you do it?!


I came so close to handing out a perfect 10, I really did...
The music was so perfect, it had a such a magnificent build up.

With a flawless integration of a vast variety of sounds,
yet it all was done very organically, & felt truly epic...

Until that scream/yell happened, it was so unexpected, random, & out of place.

Had you not included that I think I would have handled out my first 10 for a song on the portal.

A little too basic

Sorry to say this, but it just seemed like there was something missing. The piano loop is simple and effective, but there was something else I was expecting here, that didn't really get to hear. The vocals were unexpected, but all too brief.

With the addition of the strings, I thought that something else was going to bloom forth from the track, but I was sadly denied. A flute solo would have made this track, but alas, it was not to be. Perhaps something else could have been done to vary it, but I think that it just didn't quite reach where it started out pointing towards.

Good use of soft drum beats to keep the track going and as I said before, the backing strings are nice. The solo for the strings was the best part of the piece, but it lacked the killer touch of other parts of the orchestra. This is clearly not a piece for brass, so it leaves us with woodwind or percussion. I couldn't see this accomplished by xylophones or glockenspiel, so give the woodwind section some consideration and see what you make of it.

i c wut u did thar wit teh pun


Something's missing for a reason :P Emptiness, repetition, tension. That's what I based this track on.

Not a fan of wood instruments, but I'll consider them next time.

Thanks for the review!

Sounds peaceful

I would have put this in the classical area if it only had piano but other sounds start to pop in such as the soft drum beat that comes and a light sounding bass to it then I'd leave it where it is, it sounds very nice.

Sounds like something you'd see at the opening or closing of a movie or flash that was sad or filled with some kind of mystery of people trying to find themselves. This is a great piece of music, I liked it.
