So many cool melodies in this. I love the feel, very dreamlike. Big fan of the strings+woodwinds+piano together too. :)
How did I miss out of this? I love the voice :D. Finally some worthy Nordic music on NG!!!
Amazing, absolutely amazing arrangements and melodies. I have no critic on this since my skill is way below your.
the good and very god
the vocals are the best i heard until now
the background of the vocals is good and the piano the atmosohere to talk in general
this seems like alot really lot of work and like is it for a movie or something really beautifull and emotional
the not so good
even troght i really like the voice and the rest i could really understand the words rarely if i strain myself ,
there could be some more of the voice at then end
well 4.8 my rating great song
This is an NGADM Round 2 Review.
What I liked:
-Vocals! Very nice, and mysterious. It's very chant-like, which is good!
-I like the piano sounds!
-Chord progressions are not entirely standard, which is rare and good.
-Parts of this sound like they belong in a move like Lord of the Rings or something like that. Especially those super emotional strings near the end.
-Great job producing atmosphere throughout. I'm impressed.
-For working with sound fonts, your sound quality is quite high.
What could have been better:
-This piece feels a little disjointed, the beginning doesn't feel connected to the rest of the piece. While I really loved it, I would have liked to have seen it incorporated more or reintroduced.
-That somewhat Asian sounding part in the middle is out of place to me. The rest of the piece does not fit in to this genre.
Excellent job here. I'm really impressed with this, especially from 2:37 onward, the composition is quite strong. You have great talent, and I'm looking forward to hearing more of your music in the future!
Beyond a doubt, the highlight of this piece, are those fantastic vocals. They're very well sung, they're emotional, they fit in well with the theme of the piece, and they're well mixed. All in all, they're just right. They're definitely your strongest suit.
However, the instruments that come after are kind of disappointing when considering the quality of the introduction. They just sound a bit too fake, too robotic, to have the same striking effect as the vocals. The melodies and harmonies you used are fine, but the instruments that play them just aren't. There are also some mixing issues at points, with reverb drowning out notes when it shouldn't be.
Overall, this really is a great piece, and it has the potential to be more if you could work more on the instrumentation. Great vocals and great ideas, keep up the good work!
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
