Please review or risk my awesome pants.


Hm.. yeah

Pretty much in total agreement with emocidalqueer. I'm a fan of string quartets.. so I might be a bit biased. I liked it a bit more. Though, I am definitely not a fan of the ending either :P Totally changed the mood.. and yeah it just sounded weird to end like that. The rest was cool, though.


This is a very odd piece, I liked it, but somehow I felt it didn't really go anywhere. It was lacking of a really killer melody over top or some powerful drive to keep it going. I also felt the ending was very weak, ending on pizzicato like that sounded a bit odd.

It just didn't feel that right, lacked movement, but it was well made. I liked the part around 38 seconds at first, because I thought it would speed up.

Pretty good nontheless though.

Scarlatti responds:

Yeah, I was thinking of it as a movement of a string quartet. Probably a second movement. That explains some of the slowness. A third movement would add some fastness. And a first would add some melody.

People give me crap a lot for being more harmonic than melodic. That's cool, but Rameau says, and I agree, that melody is only an extension of harmony. I will learn all I can about harmony, then use it to create fantastic melodies. But that's the next phase. I'm in no rush.


I wish they would change the 'classical' directory to 'orchesteral', because none of the music in there is classical, and theres no way it possibly could be.

Thats a pretty nifty track you've got there, reminds me of Barbers Adagio for Strings.

It was a bit slow at parts, especialy the pizzacato section, because pizzacato strings are normaly quite fast and furious. Nice suspensions at the start, and it really did have that quartet feel. Nice one.

Scarlatti responds:

Thank you, kindly Khuskan. Thing is, classical/orchestral is the only thing I do well. Unlike you and your lovely Immersion right next to Landscape Symphony. Suppose I'll just have to go out and buy some good DnB. Or maybe just play a lot of Super Nintendo.
