I made this with the intentions of it being to music set to that moments in games/movies and such where the main characters feel like all is lost, but then their resolve is never stronger.

As always voting and reviews are welcome and encouraged, and I return favors to honest reviews.

CardboardowI responds:

Thank you very much! it's reviews like this that make my day.

Not bad at all...

I think this is a better song that what some of the votes are reflecting. I think the only reason that some of the votes are so low is that its just the same melody over and over again. I personally think it works well and see very little wrong with that.

That being said, it wouldn't hurt to throw in a bit of variation. Have some of the string parts diverge a bit more from the main melody. If done right, it can really bring the piece to a whole new level. An easy way to do it is to just keep the same basic chord structure you're using, and use the individual notes from those in a different way.

As well, when I imagine someone's resolve being stronger, I always picture it being a bit more powerful towards the end, then ending on a softer note like you did.

Again, I think a bit more variation in the lead melody is what everybody voting is looking for. I still think you've put together a very good and solid piece of music here.

CardboardowI responds:

I'm glad you liked it, and thanks for the suggestion.

I originally did have a variation on the melody, but I felt that It got too far away from the themes idea, so i took it out.

About the resolve ending, I pictured in my head that once the string parts come in, someone gets all inspired and convinces the others to not give up. and when the piano comes in solo at the end, they are walking away from where they just were, and it ends with the scene just of the empty field with a sunset, or like the snow falling and it outzooms to the sky, or such things like that.

I agree generally I could end stronger, but I felt like doing it a bit diffrently since i do that so often.

Thanks again for the feedback. I'll let you know the next time I do a similar song and end it in a manner yuo prefer.
