Amazing work again. all of your work brings a smile to my face.
Had to do a little hunting for this one. Saw your name in "Flight" at Armor Games. Searched and found your site. Searched your blog for the link here. Glad I did the legwork... this song's a favorite!
It definitely has that Christmas rush/dashing on the ground/get ready to fly feel... rushed, but eager, not anxious. It felt like it belonged on an NBC 1980s holiday special. At 0:35-0:45 I thought I heard a nuance toward the old NBC Nightly News theme/bumpers, and again at 1:15-1:20 with a mini-reprise at 2:00-2:05. That added to the nostalgia flavor for me. And I appreciated the gliding/soaring movements along with the parts to dive for speed. It's a temptation to let the music take over your fingers when you play the game "Flight."
I'd welcome hearing this in other works. And I'll be jamming to this in the airport when my flight back to the States comes up.
In short, a full five star rating. You've earned your wings.
You're clearly one of the best here, keep it up.
I'd like to hear more of your stuff with dry-er mixes. The super reverb-ey stuff reminds me of Yogscast/Haat films music, and makes it difficult to hear how good you are at nuancing your music.
What really makes the game "flight" very interesting to play is its wonderful orchestral-rock music.
Fits the game perfectly, as I don't hear these kinds of music much anymore.
You nailed it.
This is one of those perfect examples of how music can exemplify and even surpass the art it's supposed to support.
When playing Flight, I immediately recognized how well the music went with the game. I even claimed it was the reason the game was so well received.
Now I realize it's by DavidOrr and it all makes sense :P
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
