omgosh i loved the trumpet drop. idk just really stuck out for me... very effective piece
Melody, harmony, rhythm: You have a great sense of chord progression. The harmonic structure that you use is very fitting to the scene that you've presented, and I can imagine the image that you have portrayed. My main issue is that in this piece, there isn't a very developed sense of melody. You have a lot of cool sounds mingling together, but it's difficult to pick out a hummable melody that the listener will be whistling long after playing the game. That is important for a scene like this, I believe. The french horn kind of has it, but it's not clear.
Mixing/Mastering: One way you can bring that melody is by bringing up the volume of that horn. Also, by panning different instruments to different speakers, you can make them sound distinctive and a bit less muddy (I can't really tell if you panned, I'm on a laptop).
Phrasing, dynamics, etc.: This is a pretty dynamic piece with all of the crescendos and decrescendos. It sounds pretty organic in that sense. Balance is a slight issue though.I would have liked to hear a tad more of the piano at 1:11ish, but that is picky.
Other: This is an emotionally effective piece. It is varied and dynamic in its volume and texture. I can clearly imagine the scene that you describe, and with some sound effects, this would be really cool. The piano at the beginning was a nice touch. However, the ending piano notes sounded slightly off to me for some reason...
Overall, very nice. This being your first "classical" attempt, it turned out quite successful. It could be refined in a few ways, but great job. Keep 'em coming!
I understand what you mean about the melody, and I agree with you. Listen again, I edited the audio file on newgrounds, the song is cleaner and I turned up the horn sound.
Sorry for your laptop, I panned :P
Thank you for your helpfull review ! Keep following and helping us !
Incredibly enjoyable. It had that hint of excellence in it with the faded sounds and what not. (5/5)
What VST's did you use?
I combined, modified and used many strings, piano and horns plugins which are in reason ;)
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
