I think I got distracted at several points while writing this, or got really mad at finale crashing constantly. Either way, this is a very odd trailer score. Perhaps someone will find a use for it out there? I think it manages to hit on like eight different feels in about 1'30".



Rated 5 / 5 stars

Very well executed, I like the call and response at the end & the little string jabs. I very much got caught in your intro - a Legend of Zelda vibe and then darkness comes towards the middle piece, but The Hero of Time overcomes it! haha.

Your levels are very good. The flute sounds amazing, its an instrument that can kind of be hard to control since its in the our most sensitive frequency range. I may would brought the brass up a db more at :26 (Those staccato notes)
Overall though its very clean, and nothing clashes. Well done!

Thanks Nick!

I'm particularly proud of the flute (and the harp!); I don't get to use my own samples in my work as much as I'd like to. Just be happy I didn't decide to use piccolo, eh? XD

Not really bizarre, but very different style in a unique way. Much different than your usual style. I like the middle part, very creative work with the pizzicato and low brass. There are so many things going on with this short piece. I have to say it has superb mixing and mastering. Nothing is cluttered, great as usual. Reminded me of the old Disney scores, perhaps even the first Toy Story's score.

Great work! 5/5

Hmm... that's a very interesting connection! I never thought of that, and in a way, it is close to some older Disney scores. :)

I tried to go with a bit older of a style of writing for that second bit. I wanted something really psychotic and conflicted. I guess it works!

Thanks for your thoughts as always, and best wishes, my friend!

I like the atmosphere at the beginning and the flute. Interesting transition at :13 into the pizzicatos. I like how you increased the drama after around :25. This piece is very short, but structurally it has all the elements of a cinematic piece that I look for. It has character, climaxes, and feels very conclusive by the end. If I had to complain about one thing, I might say that the transition into 1:00 is a little sudden, and a crash there would go a long way. Other than that, really nice job, man! Mix sounds pretty clean as far as I can tell, too. Keep it up! ^^

Thanks for the review! I forgot the mention, but the flute and harp are actually my own sample work as well. Hopefully those will appear for public use at some point, hopefully free. :)

Yeah, kinda gave up and didn't add any percussion. Maybe if I get around to it I'll add some swells and the like just to smooth out the transitions. :)

I like it. Such a sudden atmosphere shift at 0:23, and even darker at 0:30 XD
I won't say too much about the piece itself, but I think that the trailer featuring this track would have a lot of interesting things going on, ranging from calm/naturlike, beautiful to cutely dark, to hopeful to almost mysterious, shady and explorative with an oddly heroic ending ;)

I get a lot of good imagery from listening to this, and that in itself, proves that this track is interesting. I also think it's very good, so it goes directly to my favorites.

All in all, great job ;)

Hey thanks, dude! I always enjoy hearing from you. Like I said, it's a bit all over the place emotionally. XD

Thanks for listening!
