I know I'm probably the millionth person to say this, but I love this track! It really explains, enhances and defines the Larry series- the music is almost a character in and of itself! I realize it has it limitations and composition requirements, but if it could have been a bit longer, and perhaps a bit more varied, it would be more epic.
More good stuff. Check out Bruno Coulais if you haven't already. He did Coraline, and has been sounding like Danny Elfman before Elfman was a composer. He rules.
You, Mr. Orr, are the most talented composer on Newgrounds. This is with EWQL right? You did a great job of adding realism. Sounds like something from a high-budget Nintendo game (in fact.. the beginning almost sounds exactly like the Mario Galaxy Motif)
I'm amazed that you can make the orchestra tumble around with such finesse, you'd almost be mistaken for Horner or Elfman. The song does a great job of changing moods from heroic to playful-action to classical fantasy. Props, dude.
Wow, thanks for the kind words! Yes, this is all done with EWQL Symphonic Orchestra, with a few samples from Stormdrum and QL Pianos. I was aiming for that whimsical, hectic Elfman style - it's great to hear that it came through!
oh my god
Jeez Dave, how did you get so good? This is all done in cubase via MIDI keyboard, right? So how the heck did you make it sound so real? You must have taken composing college courses.
Hey Jesse - yes this was all done in Cubase via MIDI. I am currently finishing up a music theory degree right now, so I've been taking theory and compositions courses for several years (I started before college).
Thanks for the support!
its so well made that i can really feel the medieval town feeling
