I am sorry about the quality, it is not the best. This is the first submission I have made without any imported MIDI files or anything... in fact, this is my first actual submission... just an afternoon with a mouse and the will to write music. The usage of a strong horn section backed by a piccolo and the stacatto thumps of plucked violins adds to the noblity and theme of the Middle Ages expressed in this piece. The chords used were made up from years of fooling around on the piano (which I still don't officially know how to play) and pure feeling. I hope this lives up to... better than terrorble... It clearly isn't a masterpiece, but I think it's good enough for the portal.

Middle You- Middle me: different views

I've never tried to thoroughly write a music review but there's always a first time for everything. I think I'll experiment with this and do so by pointing out what I feel is the goods and bads (if I find any) of this piece in twenty second intervals.

{00-20} I couldn't find anything wrong with this part by ten I already felt a building up of something on the scale of orchestral grandeur. The first plucks of the violin kind of killed it but I still felt like I was in for a treat.

{20-40} The orchestral grandeur thing took a nap here. The plucks were soothing near the end.

{40-60} I very much liked this part for the percussion but I will say that it did not feel middle agish. We may have different views on that; nevertheless it was still worth listening and certainly built up that grandeur again.

{1:00-1:20} Ah, that was perfect, that just went to so well with what had built up before.

{1:20-END} Well I guess that last part was the climax or something because the rest was comparatively boring or lullabyish.

Overall, I felt that the last few seconds could have been more exciting or at least had a better transition from the last twenty seconds. The emotions alighted were pretty much dead by the end to say the least. That's where you lose one star, you can't like everything in life and the end is where you lost me.

samulis responds:

Thanks for the full review. I think you're right about the mixing of the themes and the anti-climatic middle part... I was doing a lot of experimenting with themes and instraments that when I wrote that part, it was originally for brass, but it sounded too broad and legato. I think I will try to perhaps go back and split this song into two arrangements and add onto each.
