A short, trailer-like and epic symphonic song.

Here's one that I worked a lot on. Over 30 hours of work into this, and it is the first symphonic song that I ever did. I finished it a while ago, but never published it. I'm doing it now so I can make people listen to it in my harmony so we can play it in a concert.

But yeah, leave some feedback and I'll be happy!

Pretty great for a first! Excellent use of variety of note volumes, and nice job gluing it all together with the strings.

The brass instrument at 00:51 sounds weird to me. I think because each note starts with a mini-swell, and it sounds somewhat muted, like some of the frequencies are missing.

Are you saying this is going to be performed live? I hope to hear a recording of that.

For the brass instrument (I think that it's a horn, but I'm not sure, and I'm too lazy to open up my project), yeah, the mini-swell is indeed present, I actually added it so it sounded less direct and I thought it sounded quite good. As for the muted frequencies, it might be because of the other instruments around it and their reverb that are crushing it. So basically, a bad EQ job. I should mess around when I'll have time to fix that.

It's going to be recorded, but not with a professional microphone, so it'll sound like shit. If you really want to listen to it when it'll be available, just message me. We should be playing it in a concert somewhere between February and June.

Thanks for your review!

Not bad, but please dont quit electronic music
