Man what an incredible piece! I always get inspiration from you and try to improve myself. You are a very very talented musician mate. I pray all the best to you.
Thanks a lot Emid! This piece was quite different and a challenge since I had to write this for CrabbWalker's animation so I had to make sure it would fit the scenes. This was also my first time scoring for an animation :)
It was awesome working with you, and I look forward for possible future endeavors! By itself it's probably one of the best soundtracks you have done up to date. Amazing work, keep it up!
Thanks man! I had a great time working with you, really glad you asked me to do the score :)
Always hearing great stuff from you man. I'm not really the one for long detailed reviews but I can sure tell you have huge potential in film/media composing! The music for the animation fit pretty nicely for a first time attempt at this kind of stuff!
Thanks man! I'm not that great either at writing detailed reviews but I appreciate any review!
You certainly did do it justice! I watched the animation, and your music added SOO much to the atmosphere!
While this sounds japanese, I also get an arabic at precisely 1:00. I've heard similar things to that going on in examplewise Okami though, so it still holds true to the eastern style.
And yeah, I can't really criticise this at all, as I know how well it fit the animation. It works surprisingly well as a standalone track too!! :D
The intrument choices are splendid, the melodies are nice, and the mixing is good. I love it when you play the guitar, btw! You get such an amazing sound out of it :3
I would go at it just like you probably did; find out what works, and in whatever order, and if it doesn't work, tweak and fix it until it does. Although the process can be smooth, and not, in the end, whatever means you used, it's the end result that matters, and the end result here is great XD
So splendid job once again, dude ;)
Thank you so much for your review Lucid :)
it does sound a bit Arabic indeed at that part you mentioned, CrabbWalker asked me if I could make the soundtrack have Japanese/Oriental and Arabic elements to it.
I'm glad you liked the guitar part :) I'm always not too sure if I can get it to sound alright in the mix since I have to record it myself, samples are usually so much easier to mix xD
Thanks again man!
