'Music box' segment created in Logic Pro using various pitched metal percussion instruments, all panned and quantized slightly differently. Orchestral segment written in Finale 2009, using samples from EWQL Symphonic Orchestra. Mixed in Logic Pro to 16-bit AIFF. Converted to mp3 in Audacity.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

Dark, Spooky, Haunting, Brilliant

I've always felt that music boxes always held some kind of darkness in them, that and the fact that it reminds me of 'haunted Music Box' makes tis one of my favorite tunes.

Good job

Nice. I love the melody, very scary though. But it gets sad. This is nice you should stick with this genre. Look at your listens and votes. You got lots of them... That means you did very good. This sounds professional I must say.

My god, this is so nostalgic and eerie.

Absolutely amazing! I have to say, the plucking of the violins, especially at 1:35 reminds me of Fable 1, Witchwood theme. Absolutely fantastic. 5/5, and Favorited I love how everything blends together to making it sound so very eerie and mysterious, but at the same time magical and enchanting.

Ah, yes, Fable. I loved Fable 1, its soundtrack definitely helped inspire me to write this track. Magical, enchanting, and mysterious -- that's what I was going for, just like the Fable soundtrack :)

Thanks for the feedback,

How authentic

This song is very well done because it gives off a great sense of a music box. It must be forever since I had an actual one. It is mostly everything that you would want in a music box. It doesn't try to be too fancy or anything but at least fancy enough to make you realize how good the song is. The coolest thing is probably how it starts off so softly and escalates. What's truly impressive is that the escalation happens very gradually so you barely even notice it.

Whatever the one was intended to be, it gave me a great tone of grace and peace. While it loses it a bit as it goes along, still a wonderful song. Around 0:53, it seems to take on a more stylistic part and makes you think about going on a journey. I can just imagine the violin slowly being played to this song. I am so glad to have come by it.

Rampant responds:

Slow but steady build-up. That's interesting, because in my older tracks (not on NewGrounds), that's what everyone agreed I did a lot -- slowly add instruments, drive, etc.

Anyway, thank you for the feedback, and I'm glad you like it so much,
