Strings piece. Changes from light and playful to sad and dramatic. Comments welcome.



I like how you get from contrast to another.Perhaps brass are missing,but either way,this is a great piece.Keep it up!

The bridge between the two parts is just a simple one that came to me. Originally this was written as two songs, but I combined them because they did work well together. Thanks for the review!

Well done.

I'd really like to hear this played by a real orchestra. There's too many subtle details that I could just imagine popping out, then.

I also would like to hear...the rest of the piece! Just seems like there should be a final section to me.

Nice work, though keep it up.

theinfernumflame responds:

There was actually a different and longer ending that was like a whole different part in the original song. However, it just didn't really work for this, and is better suited as a standalone piece, and I'll likely release it that way soon. Thanks for the review.

wow dude..

some amazing strings.
i am speechless...

your melodies are breath taking. wow man.

great work of art

Thanks for the review!


oh just how awesome is this song!

Too awesome.

I'm a classical composer myself, so I place alot of emphasis on feeling and melody, and I feel you have captured both these feelings rather well.

As you stated, the feel of the song changes quickly, yet incredibly effectively. It just flies by you, and before you can face its full spirit, it morphs into something new, a new core, a new entity. Like a generation has just passed me by.

I know you kept this purely strings, but I keep wondering, just how much more dramatic the sad part would be if you had chimes, some tubelar bells.

Just my two cents ^^.

Awesome piece theinfernumflame, you have inspired me greatly with this piece. 5/5 from me, keep them coming.

theinfernumflame responds:

You are actually one of my favorite composers here on Newgrounds.

As for this piece, I actually wrote it quite a long time ago, but I didn't submit it until now. I felt I wanted to add something (maybe timpani or something), but everything I tried seemed to take away from the song rather than help it, so that's why I left it as it was.

Thanks for reviewing.
