Yet another Devastation. Thanks to MaestroSorrow for the suggestions! Again!


nice song

It's a very nice string and piano play. I like it that way ;)!

keep it up!

Harddrive100 responds:

Thanks! Right now, I'm in the process of writing a 4-Movement n00blet-level symphony. lol. I hope it'll be better than what I said (n00blet level...lol), but I really don't know. I do know it won't fit on NG...

I say this for MaestroSorrow, who probly thinks I've fallen off the face of the Earth. lol.

Don't plan on seeing the "symphony" for a few months, though...lol. School is demanding when you expect a 4.0 GPA.

Was pretty good.

I found it pretty good, much MUCH better then its first two forms.

Pretty good ideas too, you could probably make some crazy ass stuff in the coming months, if you decide to keep making tunes n stuff.

Harddrive100 responds:

If? If I decide to keep making music? Dude, music is my life. Composing it? That's pretty new. lol. But playing it...listening to it...I've done all that for God knows how long. lol. I know it's a lot better than the first two forms. Mostly because I didn't put enough time in the first ones. lol.

He was right...

Hey Harddrive100, MaestroSorrow sent me this way, calling you "a budding artist" and so I decided to take a little trip here and see what all the hype was about.

He wasn't joking, when I listened to your first pieces, I was rather disappointed. I was thinking "This is it? This is nothing but a piano, and a fairly lame one at that.", but then I listened to the other ones, and indeed, you've taken HUGE leaps and bounds as the songs progressed. Especially this Devestation one, this final result is nearly ten fold.

He told me you were getting better, FAST, and again, he wasn't joking :P.

I have little to no classical knowledge, so I will not suggest anything, as most of them would not make much sense, but I would still like to hear some more diversity in your work. You use the brass and strings alot, and though they do work good, you should change it up often to give each song a unique stamp that makes them pleasent to hear.

He told me to tell you don't worry about the Snare sounds, he has some VST plug-ins, which are pretty much REALLY high quality instruments and percussional stuff, that you might find useful.

I will give you 4/5, because you have inspired me with your progress.

Harddrive100 responds:

Thanks for your review! I know I've changed a bunch since I've started. Mostly thanks to MaestroSorrow :D. I plan on changing my instrumentation for future songs, don't worry.

Grilled to perfection.

It is now indeed, final Devestation! I ADORE the switch between strings and brass, its like a dance of spirits going back and forth.

In its final form, I see this story from the song.

A man looks at the destruction of his home, his town, his people, fire consuming everything he once held sacred. He looks at it with insanity digging deep into his soul, rage bellowing from his heart.

I think this because the notes are somewhat fast, whilst keeping a sad tone.

I don't think snares are required in this piece, it works just fine the way it is ^^.

I think we can close the books on this one Harddrive, a fine piece, sealed and done to perfection =D.

5/5 + voodoo curse from me.

BTW, I use Fruity Studio's, with the VST Edirol Orchestral, AIM or add me to MSN I will tell you a lot of things to help ^^.

Keep them coming.

Harddrive100 responds:

Thank you for the high rating....and I'm not sure what to say about the voodoo curse...lol. I tried Fruity Loops 6 once....it was confusing. lol. I don't know what the other thing is. I will probably add you later.

Thank you again for all your suggestions. I wouldn't have written this if if wasn't for you.
