So this is likely the complete version of this song.

Garritan - Steinway Piano
EWQL - F Horn, Harp, Cello


EDIT: July 16th; A third and hopeful final change. Just added some dynamics in the mid section.


Its strange, but in the begining it feels at some sections that the piano is fighting for the melody. Individually, each part seems very warm and full, but there is almost a dissidence.
Just doesn't resonate with me.

After listening to it a few times, I can see what you were trying to go for here; almost a pondering tune, am I right?

WingoWinston responds:

Yeah exactly very ponderingfull. I imagine Andy Dufrene (however that is spelled) from Shawshank Redemption (however that is spelled as well) strolling around to it.

I figure I could remake/remaster it with the piano just upped in power. I think its also due to the mix of two different plugins in terms of both the VST player and the VST's themselves. The piano was garritan the rest EWQL. So I'm thinking I should have adjusted for that but at the time I was working and just didn't have the willpower to do so haha.

Thanks for the review! :D

If you say it's a DVD menu screen songish thing, shouldn't it loop? Especially with something so short. The instrumentation is cool, and the reverb on it is nice. The melody itself is strolling and calm. I was envisioning a heavier string line; something to back up the cello so it doesn't sound as empty. That would make it perfect. I think the biggest thing lacking is just the idea itself could be longer and looped. In the department of instrumentation, yeah there could be more parts added, like chimes, pizzicato strings, a soft French horn. But, the simplicity of this instrumentation is actually quite captivating too. Overall, it just needs further expansion or the ability to loop cleanly. Hope this was helpful in some way and good work!

WingoWinston responds:

Just noticed it says "No HTML, por favor." when I reply to reviews haha.

Well the piece isn't complete yet which is why I haven't looped it yet. I just wanted some quick feedback - which you have so graciously done - and then I'd get back to work on it. The cello is a little hollow, this song was partially a test for my new EWQL samples. I suppose I can use more now :P
