Part One - The Tribes
Well holy fuck. The drums and the percussion really makes this song great. Those were the first instruments ever used, you did some great work here. The little "flute" also works too, the volume is at the "most right point" lol.
Part Two - Building Begins
More instruments coming. More than a part, I'd count this as a big buildup for the next part, the most awesome one, coming in at 1.30 circa and on
Part Three - Kings and Queens
Medieval feeling, this is the greatest part. After the guitar instrument (liute?), the choirs are very gorgeous. The "piano" also fits in this entire part at the end, and it adds that little touch that makes the song "sweet".
Part Four - Dawn of Technology
Can't really say anything here. Not my sounds.
Part Five - Inventing New Realities
Same as above.
Part Six - Ages Past
A return to the past, and very well done. I didn't read the first time, but I was excepting that the introduction drums were going to come up again. Felt very satisfied :=)
Part Seven - Preparing for LHC
Intense and build up! Very well done, too bad that ->
Part Eight - Into the Deep Void
The ending lasts too long, and it obscured the big badass buildup you made in the part before. Don't know if you get what i mean.
Great song, would pirate it lol
Like that it is more as an adventure rather than a song, gratz.
Man, the insight in how much work was involved in the making in this really raises the bar for how much feedback I should include in a review. My first impression, with regard only to the sound, is that's ambient and fresh. I like the first chunk of music best, even though it's simple. It feels that part conveys the astral voyage much more than the others, but it's an interesting mixture of different instruments and melodies all the way through. Something like this should get it's own animation. I'm all for imagining things myself, but it would be interesting to see this with a forced pictorial track synced to the music. Keep up the good work!
Oh man, I'd LOVE to see an animation to this. I'd be curious about what people would think about it.
Glad you like the ambiance and freshness of the track, I was hoping to make something... different. All the different sections were originally intended to depict sections of the nation's development, the end is when they finally get to space.
Thanks a lot, I hope to put out a new piece in a few days which I've been working on for awhile!
It's late, I'm not in the mood for a long review, so I'll keep it short.
Awesome instrumentation, great atmosphere, and I mean GREAT atmosphere. Loved it whole.
Oh, and AGE OF EMPIRES! :D
i am most glad that you love pretty much everything about this so yay AoE :D
This sounds really good!
I wanna see you remix a track from Simcity 3000. That'll be awesome. :)
Hiya! I'm glad you like!
I don't know much of the soundtrack from Simcity 3000, but maybe I'll try that sometime. :)
I really enjoyed this song. My favorite part happened @ 2:52. You did a great job mixing this track. The sounds you picked were awesome. This might be my favorite track that I have listened to on newgrounds. just an all around awesome job. 5/5.
Hey, thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed this song. :)
The part at 2:52 was actually an idea from the soundtrack of a game called Grandia (which has an awesome soundtrack in general btw). Almost all the sounds on this are from one magnificent thing called Omnisphere.
I'm glad you think this is your favorite track - hopefully I can break that record with another track of mine! :D
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
