A music box playing some creepy waltz accompanied by a small orchestra... I had the idea to this one for quite a while and put a lot of effort into the harmonies. I have to regret at the end I got a bit lazy and some transitions and the end could definitely been better but with some parts I am quite happy actually ;)


Thoughts while listening:

SHADES of Tim Burton! Not many people are composing in 3/4 lately. The build-in at about 30 seconds is wonderful! Love the tuba sound in the waaaaay low! You know, I can tell that you're using synths, but I don't care! I'm having a ball listening to this! Great mood change at 1:30, and then yet ANOTHER at 1:45! WOW! This is so flawlessly composed that it should be in a film! ...You're not writing an actual score, are you?

Thoughts after listening:

Yeah. It was OK.

Just kidding! This was brilliant! Like, the only thing that would make it better would be an actual orchestra! And even then, it's still perfectly fine. Lots of great scene changes, lots of attitude and precarious tension notes. Everything changed constantly, but it all felt like it truly belonged in the piece. Azhthar, my friend, I salute you!

5/5 (first one I've given) R4R

Hey! Thanks for the nice review. Didn´t get that positive feedback since a while ;) Glad you like it. Yep, an actual orchestra which plays my tracks is not that easy to find sometimes...Maybe I should think about hosting one in my cellar ;) It would great actually.

Well y'know me and waltzing. But yeah, really love all the instrument choices and other miscellaneous noises. I enjoyed that descent at 1:27 leading into the big end. I actually think a lot of your music is already so heavily focused on harmony...so I personally think you should delve more into melody-making. Anyways, I love you. Bye.

Azhthar responds:

Melody is overestimated ;) Actually for this piece it was quite hard to find a nice melody, due to all these chromatic chord progressions. Too many leading notes... So the melody became quite simple here and not very memorable but I really should focus on some more melodic piece in the future. Thanks for the input! Maybe I´ll also do some polka again, soon ;) Love you, too. Cheerio.
