This is a piece I put together using live orchestra samples.



((...Did you really mean "clam", as in the mollusk? O__o))
Very nice, very sinister, nice change of pace with the horns a few minutes in... Owo

nice work

It had a really nice tense and creepy feeling to it, you did a great job on that. The pizzicato gives it a great feel, but it isnt a very diverse song because its all the same trhoughout, just all these diffrent effects with the cello in the backround. The vibratos were good too, what program do you use? anyway its an overall good piece, i'll give it a 5/5, 8/10, and a download. look at my page too, a review would be nice.

Wow I wasnt expecting such positive feedback so quickly, dang thatnks alot. Oh and I use Sony Acid for all of my music, and the samples were from a seperate loops set that was sold sepratly.

Really good!

This song is absolutely great! It really brings the mood that it was aimed for. Especially the beginning - great use of tha instruments! The only strange was the horn or brass like instruments in the beginning. They sounded a bit weird - but after that you was using another kind of brass sample. That was ok.

About the structure: it's ok. You could hold the tense feeling all trought the track. The parts and the useage of the instruments are variated enough - but I had a bit of feeling that the song has become a bit repetitive. But that's might be some personal preference.

The end was also greatly done - the strings (?) were playing an absolutely creepy melody and the pizzicatos were guided them well.

So: I liked this one. Keep them coming. I haven't checkd your techno tracks but I think you should work more with classical samples.
