Haha, I like the distorted beginning and the slow, dreamy tempo it has. It almost sounds like it's from a flashback to one's childhood - a lost memory somehow reignited by a fleeting moment in old age. I see a little girl holding the music box for the first time in wonder, and watching the ballerina in the middle spin in an incessant dance, and then the old woman tearing up as she realizes it's still in her attic somewhere, long since broken, but not forgotten. Sorry, I got carried away there. I think you already know that the mixing/recording quality wasn't great, but other than that, it's a beautiful melody played on a beautiful instrument. :')
Yeah, I got the tempo pretty much like I wanted, even though I'd have liked it to be even more stable. But it's not easy to crank it at a steady pace!
I think that solo music boxes always give a great atmospheric feel, be it horror, sadness, or like you said, just a memory. And whoah! That's quite the vivid picture you shared there! A pretty nice, and short story.
As for the mixing and recording, this was more of a quick test run :3
Thanks for leaving this review! You're almost at the present... But boy, do I have a surprise for you and the others tomorrow >:D
Reminds me of cowboy bebop for some reason, very soothing, nice job.
I've actually only watched the first Cowboy Bebop episode so far, but I look forward to watching the rest, which will happen pretty soon :D
Wow, sounds super cold and authentic. You gave it a very definite tone, and it sounded creepy, but I felt like I was wandering around in a frozen cave made of crystals. Only one issue, I clearly heard you jackin' at 0:45. Good otherwise.
Thanks! The golden recipe for an authentic sound is, well... Being authentic...
It's not necessarily meant to be creepy, but I do get it. When is an authentic solo music box with a lot of reverb not creepy?
I'm thinking more of the crystal cave though, which to be fair, could be pretty scary too XD
NOOOOOOOOO!!!!! I just told you that it DEEEEEEFINITIVELY wasn't me jacking off )':
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
