What the hell?
Seriously, you should defenitely get some better software than Finale, I mean, I use it as well, but for composing only... You should defenitely get Garritan Personal Orchestra, or Edirol or something. Because this music is great, is JUST GREAT. But its quality is messed up.
I mean, That's the reason people like Winterwind-NS or MaestroSorrow gets the best score, is not only because of their talents at writing music but also because of their equipment. If they arranged it in Finale instead of their software their music wouldnt be that great.
Now I understand that it costs, and is probably the reason of why you dont get it.
But you should seriously get it.
At 00:15 is quite your style. Something very original :p.
I just wished you didn't added that Electric guitar(or whatever it is) at 00:40. I dont know.. its kind of loud. Gives a nice melody tough.
Something I loved was the bass violins 01:02, excellent work.
I've read the verses you quoted.
Yeh, it kind of gives the feeling you wanted to print into it, the intro most of it. Good job.
Favorite part? Defenitely 01:46 to 02:15.
I wonder... why dont you ever post on Classical?
(except for your "As I Enter The Gates of Heaven" piece, wich is another wonderful composition if you ask)
5/5 from me
I totally agree with you about my equipment. Finale is terrible for play back. But with the reverb from Audobe Audtion it makes it alil better. I haven't heard of those 2 that you named, but I'll look into it.
15 is my style ya know... Its where the soprano comes in. An orchestra just isn't complete without the sopranos.
The electric guitar is the only instrument that could project of the orchestra. (In Finale I mean) But I like it!
Again I would like to thank you for taking the time to read about what really inspired this piece... I really appreciate that as most ppl just don't care.
I don't post on classical because... this isn't classical! heh. I am a classicaly trained musician.. (well, i've only studied viola and theory) and I guess I'm more strict on what is classical and what isn't. I didn't follow any classical form for this piece.
You're my new favorite reviewer. :)
Indeed,you like Koji Kondo.I can feel the influence he had on you^-^.Liked the elec. guitar.Good work!
Alot of things influenced this, but I have to say Koji Kondo wasn't one of them! I have been a fan of his for along time... maybe it shows subconciously or something.
Anyway, glad you liked it. And thanks for returning the favor by reviewing!
very nice work
you definitely have creative talent
