A Melancholy Evening

This piece arose from my recent attempts to improve with using strings in more important parts in my pieces, especially violins. This resulting piece was shaped around a dark progression to form a progression from a less formed A theme into a more lamenting and solid B theme, from 4/4 into 3/4.

I really wanted to go back to working with silence as a medium of transition in my work, as much as I have explored using dissonance for transitions. It always seems to create such beautiful pieces.

Please, by all means, feel free to give any constructive criticism you want, it is highly appreciated and will be returned if you wish.

Awesome composition, I can feel the despair. I like how it sounds rather classical, there was similar music in one of the Dungeon and Dragon games, in the realm of vampires and stuff, it was awesome. You only lose points for the weak attack times of your instruments that you clearly hear when there are fast notes, you should have reduced the attack time of your instrument to have better fast melodies. That's the only complain I have, great job.

samulis responds:

Ya, I was trying to find a sound in EWQL that was sweet and lyrical, partially sacrificing the attack for that particular feel. I am glad you liked the style. :)

Man, that was beautiful. Nothing else I can say but that.
Btw I heard a little hiccup at around 0:56. Small error :)

samulis responds:

Yeah, it's a problem between Finale and the EWQL reverb... I need to figure out a fix somehow.

I'm glad you liked it. :)
