Not something that will get a lot of use here, but it is a good piece of music. Review?



Rated 2 / 5 stars


I'll be honest. It was boring. Really really boring. And I like that chapel sort of long notes overlapping sound, but something about it was just very uninteresting. I don't really know what to suggest without asking to change the peice to something else'll just leave it at that I guess.

Scarlatti responds:

It is kind of boring. It is pretty much the same two patterns repeated. But that's mostly because I had a picture in my mind of some sad event in a little church somewhere. At least, that's the idea I got afterward. Church music is pretty boring usually, but I figured the dissonant downward chain thingy would add some tension. If someone used this piece in the right way, it could be pretty good. It would have to be a "Main Character Mourns Loved One" scene, or something. Could be okay. I would have to change a few things, though. Add something.

I might write another piece like this some time, with a little bit more of a Castlevania feel (which is based on Bach, mostly). Don't get all excited, though. I know it's hard not to, because everything I write is so perfect and Chuck Norris-like in ass-kickage. It will get easier, with time. The waiting. For me to do stuff. Which is getting rarer, yes. But it will happen. Probably. Maybe. Probably not. Maybe. Probably. I don't know, really.

Like the tune

But I don't care much for the synthy sounding pipe organ at all - the lower registers buzz on my subs like a sine wave or something :/. It'd probably be of more use arranged differently, or with a better organ sample.

Scarlatti responds:

I would not arrange this differently. Perhaps a better organ sample is doable, but the sample of the chapel organ is pretty spot on. It sounds exactly the way the real instrument does: pure and not unlike a sine wave. If I played it with the full cathedral organ, I think it would lose all of its mood. Thanks for the review.
