Hmmm, such an interesting piece.

At the beginning i'm getting a cold flurry of winds, like in a whipping snow storm, roughly smashing walls of cold wind at a poor person knee deep in snow.

Those choirs were... really interesting to the image. They were actually an excellent way to usher in that string melody, filled with such a bittersweet sensation, then back to the cold wind movements, except in greater number, and much faster, a lot crueler then before.

Then the flutes comes in, and things settle. A great calm sensation, looking forward and all that... but then this was the eye.

Before the full fury of the storm! Hailing now! The man runs to his home, so close, the hail and winds both very aggressive in nature.

He runs in, and safe from the winds, the song ends...

what an image!

In any case, lets get to some suggestions.

When I think wind, I always imagine a flute or some kind of woodwind, and indeed you had that before the storms worst struck home, but perhaps more involvement of the flute? Perhaps even an oboe?

Now I know this next suggestion may alter the core of the song, but have you considered a booming brass to accompany the ending? I wonder what the song would sound like if it had it, though i'm also equally sure having that would turn it into a kind of war feeling, and alter the image too much.

Thats all I can think of for now DrZ. Good stuff indeed. I drop my 5 bomb for you.


Well, personally I thought that was brilliant. I loved the range of sound and the use of stereo. yep All my 5 are belong to you.


This is a very good tune. It reminds me of a battle during a blizzard at night. The vocals in the early part of the song add to the eerie feel of the beginning, as if it is building up to a fight. Then, the main part of the song breaks in and it sounds, like i said, like an epic duel in the snow. Very well done.

This is a delicate touch of ultimate balance

This is my first ever music review, and I must say that this song is extremely great to listen too. The music would shatter the very innards of many uncontrolable souls.

DrZonka responds:

thnx buddy! I'm glad it does shatter the innards of uncontrollable souls. I'm working on a few new piece right now so we'll see what happens in the upcoming month. thnx-DrZ

Good job

The ending was astounding, musically. You need more instruments, and different parts.

You posses a lot of good qualities that could potentially set you up to be a film composer someday. How serious are you with music?

DrZonka responds:

I like music and I like to make music that sounds good to me and to others as well. I currently record off of Audacity with a Yamaha keyboard using a phono jack and a aux port. I hope to make better synced music as I grow to learn this program and use it more efficiently. In any case, thanks a lot for looking at my music and listening to it and giving me a new understanding of patience and moderation. "A Journey From Old to New" was probably put together a little to fast considering I put it together in 2 hours, so I will take my time now and hopefully make better music with the months to come- DrZ Thanks again David
