This is great! Your composition is wonderful. Reminds me a little of the music from Carmen - sexy, mysterious. I think, in terms of instruments used, the song could be fleshed out a little bit - the VSTs have a bit too much release on them so they don't quite punctuate the transitions.
Other than that, s'my only gripe. I always love how fearlessly you dive into chord progressions. The live vid is great! Makes me miss being in drum corps. :)
Thanks Phoam, glad you liked it, and I very much enjoy the comparison to Carmen, at it was one of my inspirations!
Regarding samples, I absolutely despise the ones I have, even after the HEAVY tweaking I had to do to decrease the release tail. Those are EWQLSO samples, and for supposed top-of-the-line quality, I am VERY unimpressed by their quality. Unfortunately, that's the best I've got. If you've got a cheap alternative, I would gladly take a look!
Again, many thanks for the review, and I'm glad to know you also were in a drum corps. Quite a small world this is! :)
Nice Job! Your brass sounds always so clean! How many brass are actually playing? Great composition too!
If you're referring to individual voices, there are 7, but this was interpreted with a lineup of 14 brass.
Thanks for the comment, I'm glad you liked it!
