Great song. I like the many layers in this song. How every instrument has its own place.
Your sounds are really enjoyable and clear and the way you start the song really captivate almost anyone that happens to hear this intro, the song is really good in all its lenght the only thing that is really a bummer is that the lenght is not that much...
When you write something as epic as this song i think that keeping it so short cuts a lot, and in this case i hear the end where i would have liked to hear a brutal develpment.
The ending sounds very abrupt and is a contrast to how beautifully the rest of the song sounds.
Overall this is a really good song Cleverhill!
This is a beautiful piece!! I agree with TroisNyxEtienne, nice chord and mixing work, but I totally wanted it to be longer!! I'd love to hear a longer version of this in the future.
Absolutely brilliant mixing and chord work. I also am able to feel the story that you have written.
My complaints are that 1) the piece in and of itself is very short, and doesn't seem to cover for a speech about oneself. Which leads to my next complaint: 2) I found little melodic development and not very much structure. In truth, would you hear (in a film or a game) a personal theme with little melodic development and not very much structure?
That one star, I have taken off because I yearn for submissions which represent YOU. YOU are submitting YOUR story to the Dreams of Splendour contest, and essentially what I find is something which sounds generic at best. While it can work wonders in a film, it can work wonders in *any* film, and will not especially work wonders in, say, a film about Mr. Cleverhill, who braced so many obstacles and finally fulfilled his dreams of splendour. The theme doesn't scream individuality.
Note, normally I would take off two stars if the piece sounded generic, but because of the way you handled the mixing and instruments, I'm docking off only one.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
