Been a long time since I've been on Newgrounds, so glad I popped on to check up on old favorites.
I didn't read your description until after I listened the first time. It's really sweet. I particularly like the ending quarter.
Thank you for checking up on my work. I'm glad you liked this one. :)
The part at 2:24 really captured the slow motion moment of you witnessing the actual heart attack during the game. Then the death, you coming to grips with it, and despair. You then start to heal from these deep wounds. to realize that life is worth living, in honor of them. That's what I felt through this. This was a great piece, here, indeed.
"To realize that life is worth living, in honor of them. That's what I felt through this."
I'm glad you wrote that. It's tough losing someone, but I do indeed believe that life is worth living, in part to honor them. Thank you for your review. :)
I'm only 15. My father died when i was 12.
Oddly, this song made me remember of this.
I'm sorry to hear that. Losing a loved one is really indescribable, isn't it?
This is a wonderful and well rounded piece, but it required quite a bit of effort from me before I could really 'get' it. I have to be in a certain mood to really get immersed in this and not have it feel like a bland orchestral backdrop. And even then, it gets somewhat boring after 4 minutes or so, since each part evokes a different nuance of mostly the same mood. It was also less harmonically interesting than, say, Children's overture (though 1:46 through 1:51 was nice), and the instrumentation felt a lot blander than in Alpine. Despite your description, I did not find the dissonance to be anything out of the ordinary.
Mixing-wise - some of the notes from the strings and the cymbals were unpleasant and piercing, and the mix in general is quite top-heavy.
Thank you for the helpful review. I'll make mixing more of a priority in pieces to come. :)
Hmm. My mother used to say that in her school days, she had only one friend. When she found out that her friend had died, she seemed silent. As if awoken by a forgotten adventure, that only she had experienced. She may have not wanted the tale to end so quickly.
I alone, could not feel her pain. I'm sure there are many people who would not understand her emotion. Although, she had also ascended to another group and cause. The humans who did understand her.

if you want, you could read about my life. Just remove the space.
Losing someone that you love is painful. It creates a certain feeling that you can't quite understand until you've personally experienced it. Nearly everyone does at some point though.
I'll check out the link you posted.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
