Quartet piece featuring cello. One of my personal faves.


like alot

i play cello and would want to play this some day

Damn impressive

This is now also one of my new favs. Truly everything just speaks wonderfully to each other. I hear this kind of song in a great garden.

I gotta say at the ending I felt the song was really starting to pick up! I was in a state of complete bliss and then you had to ruin my fun and ruin it!

There was a small segment here that made me think of star wars, heh, not your fault, i'm just crazy like that.

Out of curiousity which instrument did you start off with to compose the quartet? If I were to guess I would say the middle octaved violin, the high pitched violin, then the plucked strings, followed by the cello.

Here comes the end again... damn... it ended.

The song loops very very well. I was in denial the first time the song ended and so I was hoping you had some kind of break, but it was not meant to be :'(.

I have no advice in making it better, only a 5 bomb, and a props to you. Keep them coming!

I'm glad I'm not crazy. I thought it sounded like Star Wars, too! lol. Couldn't be helped; that's just how the song came out.

Actually, I started with the pizzicato viola. I almost always start with the acompaniment, oddly enough. Then I added the cello, then high violin. I wasn't sure if I would add another instrument, but I knew I needed a bass at that on chord (sometimes a song just talks to you, such as this one).

I do have an idea or two for lengthening the piece, but I'm afraid I'm a slow composer. I hope to, though.

Thanks a lot for the review and kind words, MeastroRage!


i like how the plucked strings give off a little bit of that eerie vibe..

i think you shoulda added some reveerb on everything.

but i jus love reveerb a little too much. :)


ShadowJim responds:

Actually started the pizzacato strings using only knotes from a japanese key.

And I'll have you know there IS some reverb. Perchance not enough for thy taste, though.

Thanks for the review, good sir.
