I got a few requests to expand an idea from an earlier piece into a more substantial piece.

Here is what I came up with!!!


The original piece is called "Requiem for a Stolen Identity" and can be found here http://www.newgrounds.com /audio/listen/330708.

There is a story behind this piece but i'm rushing right now so I will write it later!

Thanks dude. I really appreciate it. This is actually a revamp of another piece.
http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/liste n/330708 Maybe that's the type of thing you were looking for? The drums start around 2:10 although there's some weird compression issues.

Nice, but...

great piece. But it felt like it just finished and rolled over and fell asleep before I could finish myself. It had a feeling of something that building up to epicness. Very calm. I feel that during the moments were it escalates could have been pushed a little higher. The soft building tones create suspense and anticipation, but when it comes time for the climax, if feels like it goes back down just short of that moment. Then it winds back down and ends. IT was enjoyable, but I felt that it never reached the ,"Oh yess!!!!" moment when it should have. That is my only qualm about this piece.

killkhan responds:

There was one instant where I wanted to expand to a more complex, horn based, fanfarish part. That might be where the climax you're looking for could've gone. I took it out simply because I was worried about filesize constraints. If I had added it, I would've had to upload the piece with much less sound quality. Not to say that I won't go back and edit it but for now this is what will be on newgrounds.

Thanks for the constructive criticism.

Musical beauty

I felt musical bliss listening to this. Such beauty flowing through my soul, it inspired me to write again. Ty ^.^
