Btw, don't tell people to rate up because mass numbers of dumbass will do it opposite way.
Amazing work man. Keep it up.
I can see why this has been well-received! I like the way you use only two chords. Rather than limit you, it frees this music to change really effectively through different instrumentation and tempos.
Yes, i found tons of ways to manipulate that one very simple chord progression (and some parts use three, but yeah.) Thanks a ton!
I saw your new one on the audio portal while looking for a friends song and I'm very glad that I decided to listen to your new one because the title was intriguing. And then of course I had to listen to this one to get the full affect.
And it was amazing! I love music like this and I absolutely loved it! After reading your description, I could totally imagine it all! You have quite a talent!
The piece is very beautiful sounding, and nicely orchestrated. I couldn't help but feel that it could use some more.. Moxie I suppose.
Just an opinion, but I'd like to hear you work with some more dissonant harmonies. As it is.. It sounds nice, yeah, but parts if it are really cliche. Like, a lot of the techniques I'm hearing are the same techniques that composers for big budget movies seem to be using as of late.
Don't be mistaken though, I really do think this is a beautiful piece of work, and I can tell some effort was put into it. It's certainly better than most of the shit on Newgrounds =p
Thanks for giving attention to this song (and my other one.) This song isn't supposed to have any dissonance (or very little, as there is practically no conflict involved emotionally.) And yes, it is very cliche. But those are big budget movies. And If my work sounds like theres, that's a good thing.
And yes, most of the work on Newgrounds is shit.
I don't usually write reviews for songs...
...but this was breathtaking. This goes above and beyond what is hear in movies! This really provokes my imagination. Listening to this, I picture your character as one who grows up as the opposite of what society demands of him, a saint when they want a soldier, and is banished. When the song picks up, I can picture a sudden, massacre-like invasion, and him swooping down to save the innocent people being attacked. A couple of other stories pop into my head from this piece, too.
I have been inspired by this masterpiece!
