First Impression: "How can he call this epic piece circus music".
and for the first time ever, Second Impression: "Oh."
It really gave me this epic feeling in the beginning, and I believe that you should have continued that. But that's just me.
Later on, when the circus part comes in, I like all your aspects of the music.
I also like your chronomatic percussion.
You seem to be pretty technically good at music, and you can reach out quite far.
I wish you only the best in the future.
And I'd love you to check by my page, there's currently only two songs, but you might like one or both :)

Lets begin our review with mood and analysis of atmosphere.
You're song is quite misleading JamesMillen, starting off like that, and then so fully jumping into the circus scene.
The beginning part made me think of a great wall scene. A soldier looking over the forest littered scene from atop a great wall, squinting against the light. And then he see's a circus!
The instruments were all good quality, and you managed to do good with those trumpets. I've been looking to find realistic trumpets, ones like this.
You did something I wouldn't really expect in a circus song, at 1:45 the song gets a bit darker then I would have expected, great flute trilling there.
I found the percussional aspects a little bland though, I think it could have used a base kick every once in a while, and just mixed up a tad more.
If I could ask you to review my work I would really like to hear what you have to say about it. Thank you.
Good stuff though, definatlely one of the better pieces here on Newgrounds. 5/5 from me JamesMillen, keep them coming ^^.
Thank you for your kind review. It's funny, this is the only place that Tority ever gets any attention, usually it's Smile all the way!
So...ok the whole focus of this song was to have a series of juxtapositions, to keep it exciting since I feared it had the possibility to get dull.
The trumpet, well you're right it's really hard to find a good trumpet sound. So I relied on the fact I know what a trumpet sounded like and used effects and automation until it did sound right.
The percussion...well I was pleased with it. However, I accept your point about the bass kick. Annoyingly it does have a bass kick in it. But for technical reasons it overloaded and would never play loud. i had the same problem with Waltzitzer.
I will check your stuff now!
one of the best
this is great work.this is already one of my favourites.well..don't we just love reason?strings usualy sounds well in reason,but how you did with trumpet?sounds very realistic.very very good work!
I played the trumpet for a long time, so I have a clear idea of what one sounds like. I look that standard Reason trumpet (from the NNXT I think) and then added reverb and played with the attack until I was happy. Then I cheated and put it through a matrix sequencer!
Rarely do I give a 10.
This really blew me away. The quality was excellent aswell as the diversity. The instruments you used were great and I love how it switches tones. It starts off slow and melancholic and then becomes upbeat and interesting. This is great, keep it up and you'll become an accomplished musician.
Thank you kindly. I'll start composing again in the Autumn
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
