Orchestral Theme 2

Download this loop!

Author Comments

This is something commissioned for a game that will be released on the Xbox 360 as downloadable content. It's doubling over as a contest submission for the Newgrounds Audio Death Match. Hopefully it passes the test.

The idea behind this loop is that it swells and contracts. If you notice there are a number of buildups that lead into sections that start with just a few instruments. This helped keep the loop progressing while not really having a true climax in the song, which was what was wanted. So there isn't one major climax, but rather a lot of "mini" climaxes as I like to call them.

Hope you enjoy this little loopy. :-)



love! :D

I like this fast moving piece and those drums are nicely done! :D

Thank you much.


Great stuff

In my opinion, it sound much like the other songs you've submitted (the superhero one in particular), but hell, I gotta give it to ya, it's dope. This is not gonna be an easy song to conquer lol. I mean, the mastering on this thing is just ridonkulously good, and seeing as I'm limited in some of my mastering skills, I highly doubt I can produce a track of such profound professionalism. Then again, you DO have EastWest, so maybe that has a little to do something with it. I also noticed that your song clipped at the very end (is this what you were trying to correct lol?). Dammit, I don't wanna be completely squashed by you...I'm gonna have to the ingenuity route, f!@# it. Be back in about 2 weeks (I know, I know, you'll just have to put up with the wait. Mind you, I'm doing this WHILE studying for college finals, WHILE trying to do homework, WHILE doing several projects for different classes, WHILE working, and WHILE trying to actually have a social life, such as hanging out with my friends from Nothing More...So, if my song isn't as amazing as yours, I'm sorry lol.). Great stuff though.
P.S. Your choirs are sick. I love the minor-2nd intervals and tritones you add. It really gives it this chaotic feel. And your percussion is A-quality. I totally wish I had the ability to REALLY match you, but that's rather impossible atm. You're the toughest competition I have, and honestly there's no way that I can even compete, even with my guitar skillz and what not. You've honestly got the better setup, you've got the pro tools (not the program), so how can humble I possibly compete with you? ... How can a someone who's never swam in their entire life compete with the likes of Michael Phelps? ... That's about how impossible this task feels to me right now lol.

Thanks a lot bud. I'm happy with how it turned out to say the least.

I've gone back and listened to the original mix and the final master and I don't hear any clipping anywhere. So I think you are mistaken about how it clips at the end, but I appreciate you listening and reviewing for sure.

Thanks for the lengthy review.



I like it, but I still wanted a CLIMAX. lol

Gravey responds:

Well its a loop commissioned for a game, and they didn't want any moment in the loop that really stood out throughout the entire piece. They wanted it to be pretty even keeled, thus the purpose for how I composed this.

That aside, I'm glad you liked it. ;-)
