A great piece, love classical music, and there isn't enough of it on this site, but... I'm pretty sure this is the old gauntlet main theme. I'll have to look it up when I'm not busy, but by what I can remember, it's pretty much the same. Not a bad thing by any stretch, I loved the gauntlet games. Anywho, keep up the good work. 4.5 Stars for good music, but a tad slower than I would have liked.
Ha, they do indeed sound very similar. Pure coincidence this time. Thanks for the review!
Great use of head-space!
I like your use of panning. The whole composition had depth and stereo, and adding that quality with the instruments' clarity, it yielded distinguishable yet harmonious sounds. The range of pitches were structured well. This effect, in particular, reinforced the the easy-listening aspect. The melody was engaging, while the accompaniment played a subsidiary role, an ideal combination.
One potential quirk was the introduction, which seemed rough because of the sudden volume spikes without established anticipation. I usually disregard such trivialities, but knowing what could be while experiencing what is warrants some attention; as cliched as it sounds --- great piece, lots of potential, and wishing to see development ---- but the ear adapts as it plays. Also, interesting conclusion. The technique with the harpsichord definitely had a classical feel.
That this is an polished forget-me-not makes the piece more special. Thank you for sharing this composition to the public.
Ha, no problem.
Very analytically reviewed, I enjoyed it. I did the volume part on purpose. I liked how it sounded. Maybe I'm slightly deaf or musically inept. Like I said before I don't think I'll ever return to this piece unless it becomes absolutely necessary. OR maybe for my sake, I'm so familiar with it that I don't notice it.
At any rate, I just hear music in my head and bash a keyboard and mouse until the computer makes something similar.
Thanks for the review!
I like the instruments and progression, but it seems a bit...mechanical and dry. It couldn't hurt to add more of a climax at the beginning. Also, it seems a bit fast-paced. I liked the tempo automations, but I felt like you could've built up to 1:13 a bit more using the tempo automations. Also, the structure is a little hard to follow just because it changes so quickly. Maybe you could extend this a bit (I mean, literally switch things up every 8 bars instead of 4 or whatever) and focus on the details a little more. You could add some crashes to help make the transitions a bit smoother, or something like that. Don't get me wrong, though...it's an amusing piece. I like your style, Mr. Winston. Keep up the good work. ;)
Ehn, I know it could be better. I just pulled this one out of the gutter. I doubt I'll ever return to this piece haha. Thanks for the review though.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
