A shorter version will appear on an upcoming video of his. I'll post a link to it as soon as it is complete!

I hope you guys enjoy this track. I wanted to do something a bit different. Since I grew up listening to rock, it seemed like a logical thing to try. When I showed this to friends and family, they jumped at the rock part because it scared them. Lol. Since then I have quieted it down a bit, because I don't want it to frighten people... But I hope you all still find it effective.

Enjoy! And please feel free to leave feedback! (I really enjoy reading it!)

The music itself was good, and I liked how everything fit together. However, while I'm not sure if he commissioned it to be like this or not, I feel as though the rock came in a bit late, considering it's halfway through the song.

HaydenDavenport responds:

Thanks for the comment! Yes, he needed the rock part to come in when it did in order to fit the visuals. I think the edit that he used might have had a bit shorter intro, but it didn't affect the overall feel of the track that much.

Thanks again for commenting. I always appreciate the feedback! :D

I thought it was pretty awesome up until the rock part. Kind of ruined it. That's just my opinion though.

HaydenDavenport responds:

Thanks for the review. Yeah, I think some will find it distasteful, while some will love it. Sort of a hit or miss thing. But I was commissioned to kick it up several notches there, but I probably could have taken it in a different direction. Thank you for the review! :)

This is good songwriting IMO...I would say 1-don't be afraid of rocking out (let your inner rocking out shine!) 2-work on the mixing. I'd bus/ compress/ eq the drums in layers alot--keep doing this till you get them up front and sounding full--I use at least 3 tracks for my kick alone. They've got to rock in epic orchestral. Oh, and always mix the effect tracks of the drums with one plain, clean track in each area (this is basically what the concept behind NY or Parallel compression is).
Good ideas and mood, though, keep it up!

HaydenDavenport responds:

I appreciate the advice! I think the big issue here is that I actually used a drum sample set, so it's all just one track. Unfortunately, my computer doesn't have enough ram to run several instances of Battery in order to individually mess with each instrument. Perhaps I can still apply some of that though! Thanks! :D
