Three very different sections. Much goodness. Fair votes appreciated.



Rated 5 / 5 stars


This sound minimalist. A lot of music labled as "Majestic" can sometimes sound overinflated and bombastic. This gives you a sense of perky majestic rather than LOUD majestic :S. Good work. I hope you continue to submit material again.

This is certainly not a 'maestoso' suite. Maestoso means majestically, and 'suite' implies lots of movements. This sounded like... a skitzophrinic... and the bass in the beginning didn't mix well with the other voices, way to muddy.
In the fanfare section it was just the opposite, needed more of a bass, and I don't know why the drums suddenly stopped! They should have kept on going. Try to make your music more.... pleasing to the ear.

Scarlatti responds:

My God, how condescending can you be? I can only assume you practice, because you're very good at it.

I am very well aware of the meaning of the title. And I don't care one whit about its accuracy. Maestoso means majestically, yes. Clearly the beginning of the piece falls outside what you're willing to accept as 'majestic'. I don't care. Also, a suite can have as few as two movements.

I understand that you're trying to help, but a supercilious attitude mixed with mediocre knowledge, severe ratings, and vague jabs don't help. "Pleasing to the ear" is nothing.

I can see why Winterwind decided to quit this place. One person can come along, drop a vicious rating like this one, and drop one's music from the top ten into the morass of 4.00 and below. It would be a good system if votes were steady and thoughtful. But any piece not near the top is neglected.

My aesthetic is not soundtrack music, but self-expressive music. It is what I want it to be. That requires more attention than most Newgrounds users are willing to pay, I've learned.

As far as making my music more pleasant to inattentive listeners: no. I refuse.
