The full title is "Jambon Froid Jeté Sous La Pluie" I just wanted to make something for myself...and then impose it on others.

It begins with the ham being made in a factory and shipped to a restaurant. Upon receiving it, the chef works tirelessly on his creation, but is ultimately infuriated with the outcome. He opens the window and flings the entire dish out onto the street. The ham laments in the drizzle, not even the alley dogs want it.

Now this is a beautiful piece of music. The falls and rises mixed with the harpsichord made you feel as if you were listening to something both bizarre and graceful at the same time. There is variety in this work and nicely placed transitions. Not only that, but the instruments worked so together that it seemed only natural.

Weird as fuck, in a good way. Nightmare before chirstmasy.

This is a great melodious composition. You have done a wonderful job and did all justice and care with all the instruments you have used. 5/5 without second thought.

Great work, I really liked the vocal part! nice composition! :)

Bravo ! This track is fantastic...

Everything is made with such a good taste... Waow ! Your instruments all sound more than real and the selection you made is surprisingly homogeneous though it could have been foolhardy : switching from harpsichord to accordion, everything rythmed on atmospheric percussions and accompanied by creepy child voices. Even when the chant is a bit out of tune (no offense :P, actually I'm sure you made it on purpose), it contributes to the overall atmosphere.

I'm also very impressed by your composition. It's perfectly written, both vertically and horizontally and I really appreciated to be transported on the continuity (actually a waltz is nice for that ;) ), I mean, not feeling a hammer hit on the face every three times is very enjoyable. Everything was super smooth and articulated with delicacy, which allows you those great modulations and these long sentences.

My musical theory course is far away from me now and I hope I didn't say some bullshit :D (particularly in english). Anyway, I just wanted to congrat you for what is, in my opinion, an awesome job.
Respect !
