Western (MatchTwo)

This is the western theme I made for MatchTwo, a casual game by The Brathering developed for Windows 8.

What's there to say - for the western theme I composed western music in the style of Ennio Morricone's works. It's short but loopable. The main regret I have is that already in the first half the piece sounds like it's approaching the ending.

Thanks and yeah, I also hope someone's gonna pick it up for something more interesting than the game I made it for originally.

good job =P

An overall good piece. You got a good meaty middle if you can understand that. Even though you start out strong, you able to bring out the melody to be nice and big. It looped very well, with the ending dieing down from the powerful middle to match the beginning.

After the melody, though, you have a wind instrument in there, sounds a bit like a pan flute, that does its thing at the ending, but once it loops, it just disappears. If you're wondering what to do, I suggest taking it out at the end. I'm just not a fan. One more thing, then I'm done. I really wish I could hear more from the guitar as a more of a counter melody during the most of the melody.

Overall, you've got it good, but I think it could still use a little more work. Good job, though

Thanks for the feedback. Well, personally I can't complain about the loop as in my opinion the accented first stroke of the guitar covers the sudden interruption of the other instruments' reverb pretty well (certainly well enough for such a little casual game mainly meant for tablets and stuff). If I wanted to improve the loop I would do it differently though, i.e. by accelerating the fade out before the song ends or moving the missing reverb to the beginning of the song.

As for the counter melody - I think that would not have worked too well in this short and simple piece, especially with the kind of melody I chose for the trumpets but yeah, it does sound like a good idea in general, will keep it in mind should I ever return to this kind of stuff.

brilliant :D

F4LL0UT responds:

Thank you. I'm actually rather proud of this one. I'm happy to see that others like it too. :)
