I am glad to have come by this song. While not a personal favorite, this really is quite good. It mostly uses the classical music style, but you put a lot of effort into it. I especially like the little sounds that go off at the end of a bunch of them. I thought that might have been the fireworks outside. Yeah, I can hear them too.
I especially like when it changes at 1:55. It reminds me of something from a music box. The rest of the song seemed pretty intense, so it was a nice change. Oh wait, that's at the beginning too. A nice way to book end it. There's still some sinister sounds around that time, though.
That's pretty cool. Your motives here are fantastic and the melodies all keep together nicely. The softness to this actually works with the atmosphere you've created; it's great as theatric scoring definitely. Hmm...I think I sort of learned a little bit from listening to this too. Wonderful exercise!
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
