I really like the simplicity of this piece. Excellent use of strings and progression to accentuate that solemn feeling. Just out of curiosity, did you use SO Gold or Platinum? I'm quite impressed that you managed to create this in 20 minutes!
SO Gold with close mics. :)
The secret to the speed is two-fold- first, the bassline repeats. Second, the basic melody work is just a trade off between sections (violins and cellos) throughout the piece. To create interest, I have a point where the cello line climbs above the violins and the last iterations feature divisi playing to give more buildup. In reality, it's all just the same chords over and over again with some varying motifs and dynamics to make it seem more interesting. I'm glad to hear you think it came off well enough!
Talking of emotions, I wanted to feel where exactly I will put this piece if I make a film. Two parts of a movie came into my mind. 1- Finally hero finds the place/destiny after a tiresome struggle OR 2-tribute to a brave just-died King on his funeral. Nevertheless and whatever, as usual - flawless!
Thanks for the review, Emid! Waiting for you to post a new piece up so I can return the favor, as yours is very good as well! :D
Sound really great for a movies and a video game great job!
Thanks man! I appreciate the review coming from a composer who has certainly been writing longer than I. :)
Seriously amazing, I might use this one day.
You're more than welcome to, thanks. :D
