I put together this quick sketch today exploring how to approach composing an early baroque or medieval bardic piece with some modern principles (those being working in a minor key, using dissonant tones intentionally, the use of brass). I often work on short sketches to attempt new thematic approaches, and this one came out really well for what it started as (a simple chord structure).

By all means, feel free to leave constructive criticism or any comments, questions, or feelings on this piece... I am looking at adding more and making it into a full piece at some point if anyone has any ideas, it might end up transfering into a full orchestra.

Can I use it for a game?

Sure, go right ahead. :)

Feel free to contact me by message for a faster response, as I don't always check all my songs for reviews.

I enjoy this little elegant piece, note-by-note. i like how you arranged acoustic guitar(s) in the background which go(es) well with the piccolo(s).

My only complain is the tambourine's volume(s). I felt like it ruined the main melody. Just in my own opinion.

Well done.

Arrangement(s): 4/4
Creativity(s): 5/5

Thanks, I am glad you liked it. I might go back and change that tamborine part, I hear that now that you mention it.
