astounding is all i can say
just amazing, i was perplexed and still am, truly brilliant music, so much power, im surprised it didnt make platinum, one of my favorites of your work
Hello Maestro, I just wanted to say I enjoyed this piece much. Reading your response too the review which mentioned music theory, I understand how you feel about that. It wouldn't hurt to know music theory though, its not an enemy really but an ally, yet you adhere to the same rules everyone else is following, and quite possibly never encounter a certain idea for a piece that wouldn't present itself under "rules". If you can let the music be as diverse as a person itself, it can speak in its own mannor.
Yea I got to dramatic with that, great stuff, and thank you for checking out my recent composition, take care.
Thought I would check out your audio page again, it's been a while.
The most impressive thing about this is that it sounds like you were trying to imitate MilkManDan's style. I heard you in there, but I heard him too. It was actually a little creepy.
You've got great compositional talent, but (as I always encouraged) I would recommend you go out and get a little theory training if you haven't already. It would add a lot to your works. You have some clashing notes and melodies in here which could be avoided in the future if you were to learn about counterpoint and harmonies and all that fun stuff!
Nonetheless, this review is to one of the great artists of Newgrounds, and you certainly lived up to your reputation with this piece.
See you around!
Thank you David, you're words are truly moving to me, as I have a great respect to your music as well.
Indeed I do not know music theory, and I will learn the basics, but that is as far as I am willing to go. I have seen many of my friends who wanted to learn music, take courses, and though they got good, in the end, they all feel into the "cluster", which is my way of saying, they began to make things that everybody else made, nothing new or original. This is my biggest fear, and something I will avoid at all costs. Even if my music does not sound professional, it will sound like me, and not like the teacher in front of the class.
Thanks for your review again, keep up the good fight!
Woow !...are u still holding back !:S
I mean damn ! are u holding back or what, its like u made a Classic here, and it feels like u havent used ur full content yet!!
I can only say that i mabey thinking off using ur pianos and making a Remix or so...im just thinking outloud !;-)
But...the whole composition of the song is sometimes a bit loud, but the rest is like i superve.
For me its like a Game Music experience, for a RPG game with unlimited space.
Really great job...outstanding !
There were several problems with my computer during the creation of all of these pieces. Luckily I have purchased a computer with literally 6 times the power, and so should not be hitting these dead blocks anymore.
Thank you for your kind words, and your review ^^.
I really loved this when the snares came in!
But the violin in the background before that sounded a bit odd, and the chords at the snare-part were also strange.
If you would change the bassdrum, which makes this less orchestral to something more orchestral, this would be better.
But that's just my opinion.
Some tones from the strings just split my brain in two, made me cry and beg for mercy. Easy to fix, do it.
Even though I can hear that you've spent some time in doing this, I advice you to spend more.
I know you can do it :)
It is good to get a more direct review. Thank you Kimken, you have confirmed some of my suspicions of the piece. A lot of the dissonance I put in there myself, to symbolize the chaotic journey Dan had taken throughout his stay on Newgrounds.
I am a little unsure of which parts you mean for tones in strings. If you could pm me a specific example, I would greatly appreciate it.
I will spend more time on it, where the finished product will land i'm not sure, but more time will be spent.
Thanks for your thoughts and review.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
