Wello hello folks! I've got a new song, and this time, it's on the classical side. Crazy, I know, because I never do classical music. Still, it's my first serious attempt to make a classical tune. This one is based around Scottish instruments, namely the bagpipes! Thanks goes to sorohanro for suggesting the free Kontakt 4 Player + Factory Presets, which had the bagpipe sample.

I'm quite sure it will be zero bombed, only because it has somewhat of an intro and outro. The action of the song is in the middle guys. I know it's short too, but there wasn't a whole lot I could build off of for this song.

This song is inspired by something I heard from the old TV show, Samurai Jack.

Please leave a comment, vote and enjoy! :D

Number Zero is right it needs some improvements but even if you don't improve it anymore it is still an awesome tune.

You should consider working on more classical songs. :D

Haha thank you! I might just work on more classical songs, it's a very fun genre to compose for. ^_^

Needs 1 more level up

I think that it needs to evolve one more time, if you get what I mean. Just open up.

Other than that, I got a mild chill from it (which means that it is real good).

nightsurfermusic responds:

Eh, thanks. The bag pipe melody was hard to build of off, so I pretty much left it the same.

Has depth, but still hollow

I love when piercing sound of bagpipe (if I'm not mistaken) shows up after the beginning. It kinda tells me the story along with strings you've double octave with. Still, I feel that the piece still lacks something to make it full. Yes, with very dark bass you put and possibly cello add depth, but they are still too far to unite with sharp sounds of melodies, imho.

Overall, it's very enjoyable. Love it.

nightsurfermusic responds:

Haha thanks! :)


Taking in mind that this is just a short little thing, my comments are I think the bagpipes could sound fuller and more present. And have a counter melody or have the strings do something different than the bagpipes.

I enjoyed it =) 4.01 / 5.00 (+ 0.047)
