After some discussion, Computer112 and I agreed to do an orchestral collab together- which honestly is no small thing, noting the various differences between our styles and DAWs (I don't actually have a legitimate DAW). This piece is what resulted... and I must say, it's probably one of the most epic pieces I have had a chance to work on. The introduction starts off using an old scrapped project of mine as a basis, but greatly evolved and added to by Computer. After that, Computer wrote an amazingly epic middle part, then I closed it off nicely with a last call from the beginning.

Feel free to give any constructive critique or just voice your feelings about the piece. If you are interested in collaborating with either of us, feel free to send a PM.

Thanks for listening,
-Samulis & Computer112

Short, but hard hitting

I think that there's a well designed piece of music in here, but it's not quite where it needs to be. Perhaps a little more length and even a smidgeon more flutes, where you can use them to be the lighter side better - they quickly get drowned out by the entire percussion section of the orchestra, so the balance is ever so slightly off.

On that front, with the percussion, the kettle drums being rolled would be a nice addition, to compliment the strings and bring it all together nicely.

If I were to interpret the piece, I'd say it sounds like preparations for a battle, but from the point of view of a massively outnumbered force - rebels or the remnants of a previously defeated force, wanting so much to live through the conflict that is to come, so that they may get the chance to visit loved ones, that have been left behind at home, many miles from there.

Thanks for the critique. I see what you mean about the flutes... might try remastering it later. The drums idea might work.

I like the interpretation... much better than anything I could have thought up. :)

Thanks again,

Great

This is really a great track you two have created here. It sounds pretty good from the start to the end, there's really no favorite part I could point out (even thought the middle part is indeed pretty nice, but that doesn't mean the intro and outro aren't nice as well).

The only thing I can criticize here is the changeover at 1:23. It seems to be very out of place and abrupt. A smoother transition between those two parts would make the song even better!

Glad you like it, thanks for the suggestion. If we have more time, I am sure we can work something out for that little transition.

Thanks for the review

I enjoyed it

I love collaborations, and I used to do a lot of them a LONG time ago back in the old days of the audio portal. This song has a nostalgic feeling towards me.

There's not much I can say in regard to improving the song, as I believe there's no flaw musically. I believe the instrumentation you used (or the programs) could be better, but I understand that it would be quite an expensive endeavor to do so. Feel free to listen to my newest track and let me know what you think, because I really enjoyed what you've produced here!

Howdy there, Bosa. Thanks a ton for reviewing this. :D

I'm presently using EWQL instruments, and I honestly feel they are some of the finer VI sets out there... I probably should have used a marcato ensemble for the strings that had more variations.

I'd be glad to listen to some your pieces, I hope you don't mind really long constructive critiques. :D

EPIC.

Nice collab. This is pretty cool, but I think the parts a little after 1:00 could use more rhythmic variation or just something else. Also, a lot of the parts could use more emotion/expression. And I think the ending could use a little more.
Good job! The beginning is my favorite part, I'd say.


samulis responds:

Glad you like it. We might go back and work on it some more perhaps, but I'm not sure.
