Dead Winter (Trance Remix)

Share Download this song

Author Comments

This is my first legit trance song, and my first song of the year. This is also my first attempt at dream trance. This song might not be 100% dream trance but it has many elements of it.
Basically, this is kind of like "Lost Entity (Dance Remix)" in the sense that it is a remix of a classical song of mine, which that classical song is still in the making. Also, it is a song which I always love to play on the piano in different adaptations, because of its extensive melody capabilities (you can literally freestyle the melody of this song if you just keep on playing the [D minor, C, B flat, A] progression repeatedly with your left hand.

Every time I play this song, I picture some war-torn widow walking down a snowy old war-torn road in a dead winter (hence the title) carrying a baby. I really don't know why this comes to mind, but this song helps me to channel emotions and feelings.

Please, enjoy, rate/review, and check out my other stuff as well=)

Sad melody, jumpy overtones

An interesting track, but certainly not a brilliant one. Personally, I'm not a fan of where the piano is playing in the background, sounding sad and slightly mournful, but the main melody of the piece is the trance progression, which to me really doesn't mix well with the piano at all in this format.

The length is good, bordering on a little too long. I can see what you're trying to do with the piano, in conjuring up some sort of wintry theme for the listeners, but it needs something else to make it like that. Perhaps change the trance synths to something a little softer and smooth, as opposed to the current setup of ramming it home with the bass beat on top and trying to mix the two together. Perhaps consider the sort of sounds you get from wet fingers around the rims of glasses and work with that as the main melody. The tune would suddenly seem much more like it was a winter theme, as opposed to the in fighting I can sense at present.
