Good composition? Indeed. (Like usual... :3) Not necessarily all that sneaky-sounding to me though. In my opinion, the major key signature kind of kills the sneaky mood in a way. You know, it sounds a little too happy... mostly in the end. It worked for the intro, but ending it, well, I'm not sure. That's just me though. Still nice-sounding. :D
Rather than major, this is in lydian, which is kinda like major except with the fourth note sounding a semitone higher. Yeah I see what you mean, although I mainly wanted to add that major chord at the end to signify that whatever sneaky operation went on, it has been done. Yes I have no idea from where I come up with this stuff either :3.
I'm glad you like it! Hope it does well in the contest. I'm not very happy with it but my other contest entry has a messed-up ending and frankly I don't think I'm even going to place since there are only four spots and at least 1001 talented participants, give or take.
Thanks for reviewing dude.
Unlike some people, I like the flute in your songs. It adds a unique touch.
That's great to hear!
this is amazing, pretty misterious and relaxing
Why thank you :3.
I enjoyed it greatly, but up until the flute part. Then it lost its unique sneaky mood to the cliche mission impossible sounding flute and baseline. There is something to cherish in a piece of music which with sweet chimes can send chills down your spine and you achieved that in the first 30 seconds and at the very end of this piece. I'd like to hear more of that and good luck in the competition :)
Never thought of it that way! Personally I thought the chimes/rhodes part is a tad more cliche than the flute/bassline part, but the thing is they're both quite different from each other so it's very much possible for someone to like one but not the other. Thinking about it I should've perhaps tried to integrate them together more.
Thanks for the review, and for giving a me another perspective of the piece!
I'd say that you're being hars on yourself but that's how I find ways of improving myself :P But still. I liked that. Lately you've been more and more out of your style and you still amaze me. Good job.
You're not the first to say I'm being hard on myself with this track... maybe I am. I dunno; personally I think there's a lot for it to improve on!
Yeah I am trying out a lot of new stuff. This past year I've done orchestral, jazz, drum'n'bass, pop, hip-hop, classical... all sorts! It's fun trying out new genres.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
