I wanted to make one (last) more oriental oriented (yea wordjoke sue me :รพ ) track.

However troughout making this and even when done i couldnt come up with a name.

All i can say is that i wanted to make this track accesible so i used a i guess simple melody, atleast for the main oriental side of the medal. Not trying to offend but oriental music isnt my strongest point, but i guess im glad with the endresult.

Havent tested it without headphones on though, so you better wear em. (i noticed that with the previous track the percussion sounds horrible from the speakers too while with headphones it sounds great)

Thanks to coop for coming up with a name.

Very subtle

Again a very good loop. I like the "china town" atmosphere you create with the melodies here, it sounds nice.

I also like the subtleness of the song. I had this playing in the background for quite a while now and I'm not tired of listening to it. Sometimes I didn't even realize that the song was still playing.
While this may not sound like a great compliment it is indeed meant to be taken as a compliment. ;) I wasn't really aware that the song was playing but at the same time my subconscious mind still realized there was something nice to listen to, so I felt very relaxed. ^^

Thats always the 'best compliment :)

Nice loop

I am quite impressed with this - the soft, subtle tones of the piano, intertwined with a lovely taste of the Orient from the strings, which gives a lovely combination to the piece.

A shame this wasn't longer - I kind of thought that you could have given us something along the lines of another minute or two, with the strings mixing in nicely. From my speakers, I didn't really hear too much percussion, so I'll say that it sounded right as you've got it presently.

Perhaps a title for it could have been something like "Western Geisha", as that's the sort of imagery in my head upon hearing it.

Calamaistr responds:

hm for some reason that does sound like a good title, ill put it up.

Also, sorry for it not being longer, at the time i was out of ideas and wanted it to loop back see.

thanks for the review again :) will add a new 3 in the topic soon.

Nice classic music man

I liked it alot, that's a nice and calm music, perfect to listen when you have nothing to do...
The piano is very touching, that's a nice melody, and i liked when the oriental part came, a very nice combination.
The music is very relaxing, you did a really great job man, the only problem is that the music is very short and it has no name...
Make more man, you can do even better things, use your head...

currently im very busy so its hard to sit down to make some music, but i have been planning to do more remakes of old tracks, and after that im going back to my old style. As in no more orchestral works though i will still use hifi instrumentation but will concentrate on applying lowfiesque stuff again, i kindof really like hearing my old works and miss that sound alot. So i stop with the solo piano pieces and all hifi stuff now.

Oh and thanks for the review and thanks for liking it aswell, i know its a tricky combination and im not 100% happy with the end result, imo the first part of the koto chugg sounded a bit to synthetic compositionwise. (a bit to ryhtmic to be real).

Oh reminds me, i was also planning on editting the 'katlean prime' remake/remix a bit, the snare is WAY off, actually ruins the whole percussion compared to the original but like the above havent found time for it yet..

Thanks again, i hope ill see more reviews on my music soon cause its a bit silent these days.
