Probably my favorite piece from Chrono! Everything is just so RIGHT about this piece. Jordi's vocals are as wonderful as ever ^-^
Huzzah! Many, many thanks for that. ^__^
Yeah, I can't help but love the heck out of this piece, myself. It was also a ton of fun to make! I'd be curious to see what you think of an older piece that I did, and my most popular track by far (for some bizarre reason), Forever Fantasy.
This is by far my favorite. I get lost in a story with this music and I forget where I'm sitting, what I was doing, and my creativity begins to churn, I ache to write!
I love it when music becomes my muse......
Aw, very much appreciated. Thank you so much for the review, Katla. By all means, let the music inspire you to writing greatness! Allow Euterpe to be your guide...
This is an NGADM Round 2 Review.
What an interesting piece!
Things that I liked:
-Unique choice of instruments.
-This takes me back to my gaming days!
-I really like the percussion you use. Very effective in making this feel medieval.
-You're not confined to any specific chord progressions, which is great.
-The panning harp sound is really cool.
-Those vocals are great!
What could have been better:
-While this is a unique track, there are a lot of generic elements to it.
-The samples you use work in this instance, but increasing your sample quality would really take this to the next level.
-The flute is nice, but overused.
-I would like to have seen a larger climax.
Overall this is a fantastic track and I greatly enjoyed listening to it. You make some great music, and the incorporation of etherealwinds' vocals was a good choice. Great job!
Don't you mean...8.3/10? xD Stuff happens; no harm, no foul. Thanks for the review, BFJ! You like a lot of aspects of this particular piece, and that makes me happy. It was certainly a lot of fun to make, and I think that manages to shine through. You also offer up some very solid points regarding what could have been better, though not much by way of suggestion. Of course that's part of the journey. Probably just needs more cowbell. ;)
I'm personally very content with the way this turned out, and EW's contribution is like the icing on the cake. I'll definitely view Tir Na Nog as my biggest accomplishment in this contest, and it seems primed to continue as my 'best of' submission throughout the remainder of 2013. ^_^
Beautiful. So energetic and elegant. Jordi's voice are beautiful.
Thanks! I'm glad that you enjoy it, and really appreciate the quick review! :)
First off, I really dig the fact that you're using SoundFonts. So many people believe that SoundFonts don't have good quality, but your piece here just goes to prove otherwise, so awesome job!
Don't know how well you know your RPGs, but this sounds exactly like the game Wild Arms, it's got a nice cultural, celtic feeling going for it, and still keeps a sweet rhythm. Love it.
Thanks, nUMBRA! I'm always happy to prove people wrong. ^_~ I have heard plenty of terrible SoundFonts in my hunt for good ones, so there can definitely be quite a disparity from one to the next.
I do indeed know my RPGs fairly well, and Wild ARMs is a series that I am well familiar with. Even though the difference in style from Western to Celtic is so distinct, guitar-like strums can still often sound very similar. You should check out my other songs: Gunslinger and The Gunslinger Returns! They're at least partially inspired by those games and classic Spaghetti Westerns. :D
