Meh, I'm getting so much inspiration nowadays, but because of my very limited amount of time, I just can't let all that inspiration out, and instead I have to keep it all in my head. Well, most of it in my head. When I got to the point that I was about to explode with inspiration, I decided to make a quick WiP of what I had in my head. It took less than an hour, and orchestral is not my prominent genre, so you probably won't find it interesting, but it's better than nothing.

It uses East/West Symphonic Orchestra Silver for everything, including the percussion. I'm quite proud of the strings I did, but other than that I suppose this is nothing special. I made it so that it builds up, gradually introducing something new to the song every four bars. First four bars are just piano chords. Second four bars have the piano chords, a bit of an accompaniment in the bass, and some high strings. Third four bars have the piano chords, piano accompaniment, high strings, cello and timpani. Finally, the last four bars have the piano chords/accompaniment, the cello, the high strings, the timpani, some brass and a double bass.

So... Half-assed? Yes. Made quickly? Yes. Any good? You tell me. Hope you enjoy it, and thanks for reading.

Reviews


Good start.

I think that it should get off to a quicker start after the strings come in. Maybe some staccato and what not. The piece needs to get intense! The progression really lends itself to a dramatic feeling IMO.

Yeah, I see what you mean. I can imagine this as an intense orchestral submission :D. Yeah my songs tend to be quite dramatic lol.

I feel uncomfortable that the first song you ever hear which is mine is a WiP I finished in less than an hour :P. But whatever, thanks for the review!


haha

when you make these half- assed songs make them loop and be like it was supposed to be this short lol :D


Step responds:

Hm...

I think I'll make another one now...


Well.....

Review Start :

Since it's a WIP I can't judge it directly in everything, so I have to be honest and fair.I can picture this song in a movie, in the beginning and whatnot, it sounds cinematic, has a movie feel to it, you get the drill. Yes, as you said in the author's comments, this is orchestral, but I disagree with you, you're actually very good in this, if you extend it, add some SS54 epicness and squeeze in some rock drums and a lot of string chords, this would be an instant classical great!

Now for the technicalities :
Drums :

I can't judge much on drums since there's only a few hits here and there to fill and make it sound deeper, but the drums themselves sounded good quality-wise, you didn't overuse them and you inserted them in just the right places, which is a win ^^

Instruments :

Instruments, hmmmm, well there's a good enough balance of instruments, not too much that you can't follow, but not too little that you get bored listening to the song, so points for that too.
The sounds themselves were very clear, but that's JUST E/W :P

Melodies :

The melodies were pristine, they had so much emotion in them, the piano chords were very well chosen out, they incorporated a 'something's gonna happen' feel and they compliment the other instruments.
The strings weren't bad at all, they came in elegantly and blended well with the environment of the whole song.
The brass was my favourite though, it sounded great, so much feeling, such elegance, an EPIC WIN man!
The only problem in this was that the brass stopped, it sounded like it stopped in half of the melody, it felt like it needed at least 2 more bars of melody.

Intro and Outtro :

Oh, got me there ......

......Nope. nothing to say :P

Overall :

Very Nice, I understand it's a WIP so I won't critique on anything else until the full version comes out, which it will :)
Continue on it, I have a good feeling about this one =D

Yay, another amazing review by you!

"Since it's a WIP I can't judge it directly in everything, so I have to be honest and fair."

Fair enough.

"I can picture this song in a movie, in the beginning and whatnot, it sounds cinematic, has a movie feel to it, you get the drill."

That's good right? xD.

"Yes, as you said in the author's comments, this is orchestral, but I disagree with you, you're actually very good in this, if you extend it, add some SS54 epicness and squeeze in some rock drums and a lot of string chords, this would be an instant classical great!"

Well I suppose I'm not too bad at orchestral, but that's probably because I have such good sounds. I'm way better at trailer-score and stuff.

I was thinking about adding rock drums, but I decided against it. I want this to be purely orchestral if I ever continue it.

"Now for the technicalities :"

Cool.

"Drums :

I can't judge much on drums since there's only a few hits here and there to fill and make it sound deeper, but the drums themselves sounded good quality-wise, you didn't overuse them and you inserted them in just the right places, which is a win ^^"

Heh, if I used Stormdrum on this I'd blow you away :P. But yeah, the percussion was just a quick thing.

"Instruments :

Instruments, hmmmm, well there's a good enough balance of instruments, not too much that you can't follow, but not too little that you get bored listening to the song, so points for that too.

Yeah xP.

"Melodies :

The melodies were pristine, they had so much emotion in them, the piano chords were very well chosen out, they incorporated a 'something's gonna happen' feel and they compliment the other instruments."

Cool, thank you! I might add some more piano if I ever continue this.

"The strings weren't bad at all, they came in elegantly and blended well with the environment of the whole song."

Yep I like the strings I did in this :D.

"The brass was my favourite though, it sounded great, so much feeling, such elegance, an EPIC WIN man!"

Wow, thanks! That's a solo French Horn.

"The only problem in this was that the brass stopped, it sounded like it stopped in half of the melody, it felt like it needed at least 2 more bars of melody."

Hence 'WiP' :P.

"Intro and Outtro :

I am elated.

"Overall :

I'll think about continuing it, but like I said, this is just something I did to let out some inspiration.

Thanks a lot for the amazing review!
