My wife and I listened to this together, and both of us thoroughly enjoyed it. Your orchestration is superb, and you balanced drama and restraint skillfully.
Thanks dude! I'm glad you liked it. :)
This song is perfect. I won't pretend I like I'm going to pick on your with constructive criticism fakery. This song doesn't need one.
Haha, nah... I am sure there are plenty of issues with it. Thanks for the support and listening. :)
This is really nice I love it!!!
Hey, thanks man!
This song is another one of my favorite pieces entered in the MAC. It's well written and the sounds you chose are awesome. The mix is really good. There's not much in this piece that I didn't like. You also get several bonus points for using Finale to compose the song. lol Really good job on this track.
Hehe, thanks. Still could deal with a good bit of improvement as the other fellas have suggested, but other than that, it's a piece I'm fairly proud of, which is rare, tbh. Glad you like it. :)
Very nice music here, chilling work. The chords are predictable, not so outstanding. The flute arrangement has good potential, but I was hoping for more development on that.
Ending is nicely touched. Brass arrangements are well done. I love your string sets. Good luck in the MAC.
Thanks for listening, man!
You must have missed the entire beginning part... not often you hear Amin7 -> B Maj progressions in popular music, or else I am really out of touch with what 'predictable' means, although the modern middle part is indeed rather cliche for a reason due to the programmatic nature of the piece. XD
As always, you know me... cut to the chase, bring out the horns already! I simply dislike the concept of repeating a melody more than four times in a piece unless it has a special meaning (leitmotif) or I am writing videogame music... it gets boring to me. This is probably why I am a composer, not a song-writer. I probably should work more on developing and building on melodies, but eh... that's a whole different battle than a tone poem.
Or were you saying that I should have made the flute part more complex?
Anyway, thanks for the constructive critique as always and good luck to you too!
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
