0:00-0:12: 8/10: Nice intro, but repetitive.
0:13-0:32: 9/10: Like this part. Very relaxing.
0:33-1:00: 10/10: Awesome and relaxing. This part makes it one of the best GD custom songs ever. Closest competitors are Glorious Morning and Swirl.
1:01-1:18: 10/10: Love this part, almost a segway.
1:19-1:39: 9/10: Nice, but slightly repetitive background that should be slightly softer.
1:40-2:00: 10/10: Great part. Love the whistle.
2:01-2:20: 10/10: Similar but different to first "drop", and just as good.
2:21-2:37: 9/10: Abrupt but nice ending.
I remember this competition. You totally nailed it. This is fantastic, awe-inspiring work.
I feel completely transported to another world, it's so evocative.
Mind = blown.
I love the mellow mood at the beginning with the arpeggios. Beautiful instrumentation and melodies. It's majestic and serene, and has a well-built atmosphere to it. One complaint I may throw out there is that it had little rhythmic variation (especially in the lead instrument) and melodic development. I'll also say that I thought it was a little bit...safe. You could've heightened the emotion a lot more here and really gone for some sweeping roller-coaster-ride sort of phrases. Instead, this piece is a little passive and I'm almost tempted to call it background music. Overall, though, it's coherent enough while still possessing enough structural variety to keep me engaged. You definitely captured the deserted island theme well. This is solid work in general, and I thought the decelerando at the end was fitting. You seemed to go for a very flowy style of progression here, so I admire the conclusiveness it had by the end. Keep up the good work, Mattashi! ;)
Thank you TaintedLogic :) I should have spend some more time on this but I've been busy with work lately and really wanted to enter this contest so I composed something on my day off.
Thanks for the feedback!
I honestly thought I had left a review for this one. Oh, well.
This one has got me feeling like a child again. Thinking about the olden days of no worries. You did a really basic thing with the samples that I can respect due to the actual composition itself being really pleasing to the ears. I could easily see this in some older video game in an emotional scene. Well done, my friend. Well done.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
