It's pretty! I feel like you were going for a calm and soothing mood at the beginning, and I don't think the instrument you used helped you that much there. Sorry to nitpick, but it's a little high-pitched and even harsh-sounding at times. That said, the melodic and harmonic content in this piece is excellent. I love the way the parts compliment each other. You've managed to make a coherent piece with few instruments/dynamic contrast, etc. but yet is constantly varied and very entertaining. It takes on a much more energetic vibe later on, but I think you should try to do more with that contrast by making the beginning very soft, delicate, and light. You should play around more with the filters/attack there. The one thing that REALLY bothered me about this piece, though, was the ending. It's simply too sudden and not very conclusive, which is ironic because you kind of dragged out the break-down before the ending a LOT. The coda, in my view, starts at 2:28. Then, there's 30+ seconds of repetition to an otherwise rather fast-paced piece. Doesn't seem fitting if you ask me. I would keep the last part short and sweet, maybe 8 measures tops, and finish it off with a last, triumphant chord that covers all of the parts. I've been tough on you, though. This is good! A lot of these complaints are tiny details, because, if you ask me, the details really stand out in a piece that's so...bare. However, it's bareness also makes it very beautiful. Good job! Keep it up, Bardash! ;D
This is absolutely amazing reminds me of when I would play old Runescape as a little girl, but also mixed in with a bit more of a medieval feel and a music box lullaby. Truly amazing. I can not stop but to keep listening! Great job :3
I listen to more of your work after hearing "Gates of Heaven" and this pieces is equally as amazing. The melodies are so pretty, and the way the harps are harmonize together is truly beautiful. I was going to give this a 4.5/5 since it would be really awesome to listen to this track if it was remastered. But then I realized that part of what makes this song so awesome, is it's retro RPG like sound. It reminds me of something that would be in one of the first Final Fantasy games or really any NES RPG. I love your work, definitely can't wait until you release your next track!
Thank you once again for your review.
I am hoping one day to remaster the track, but this version of the song has grown on me over the years. It was my first publicly released track and people seem to love it the way it is.
Thanks again for listening.
Superb composing, Bardash. Quite the spellbinding track you've produced here. I doubt this would be part of your influence, but this, to me, was reminiscent of the old 2004 Runescape selection of music. So literally, those first few gentle chords were like nostalgic triggers.
I love how warming the melody is and how it progresses throughout the piece: starting off rather delicate-sounding, then quite adventurous as it goes on (I suppose a moonlight dance scene of some sort would explain the 'Night' in the track title), then shifting to a slightly faster, more playful sound and finally calming into slower chords towards the end. A bright little musical journey, I suppose, one that is overall a worthwhile listen.
The composition's end is a little abrupt: a slight fade-out would polish that up (unless that was intentional?). Other than that, this is melodious, music box-like artistry and I honestly can't understand why you don't have more fans. I've favourited you anyhow. :)
Keep it up, friend.
4.5 / 5
Thank you PotentApogee! I basically built the song off the initial melody in Print Music. The only midi instrument that sounded good to me at the time that I could publish a piece publicly with was the harp which in turn unintentionally gave the composition a music box feel. Having that unintended consequence though influenced how I later developed the entire track. Just as music boxes wind down, I decided to have my composition simulate that effect by ending abruptly.
However, this composition is intended for five harps. When I find five harp players and hopefully recover the sheet music on my failed hard drive, the expressions I intended will be more present than this current version.
Thank you kindly for your review!!
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
