I was asked by my friend to create music for his "Professor Layton Themed" game, so i tried my best, despite the fact I haven't played it. He is also using my other piano song "Arbitrary" for the opening cutscene.

Alright well to start off I think that the piano sounded very realistic, but it might sound better if the notes were stretched longer in the piano riff. For some reason this bothered me. But it actually proved to worked better with the end of the song. One thing I think the song could improve on is a cool intro. I bet if you did a softer, higher pitched and slowed down version of the same riff you started with, it would give a nice effect and set a cool atmosphere for the rest of the song. The violins sound really nice and I didn't even notice they came in until i listened closer. Not sure if that is good or bad, but it was impressive that it slipped by XD. The song sounded flat a few times, just because a few notes mixed together sounded a little nasty, but those were small and rare. But the song was pretty good. Nice work!

Also, it'd be awesome if you could listen to my song "The Return" and give feedback!

4/4 review and rating!

Wow thanks!

I think I will experiment with a unique intro and update it in the near future and will check out your stuff now. :)

Thanks for the review!

That's very cool and relaxing. But it would be cooler if you would play it on your own on the piano. But instead of that, very nice!

TheMrMokey responds:

Thanks! I actually started recording it solely by me but then I sort of got caught up in it and ended doing it through the piano roll.

I need to transcribe it for my music class so I think I might make another live version of it :)

Thanks for the review!
