"When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn."

Harriet Beecher Stowe


Here's a work in progress for an original score I've been hammering away at. I personally think it's one of the best things I've ever written (and I don't say that lightly). It's currently unmastered, so I recommend turning down your earphones. I'll upload the full version when I finish it.

Enjoy! :)

Nice WIP, I think you're a little dark horse waiting to get a bit more noticed for your audio talents. Keep it up.

The track is great and it's actually right up my street, I love this kind of build up orchestral composition. I did find the brass and Woodwinds a little strong, over your strings. So consider pulling them down a bit in the final version. I actually think you don't want to milk the build too much, and 6mins is quite long for the repetitive nature of it, and type of track. So consider possibly bringing that down to half the time, but make bigger jumps.

Hoping to see a lot more from you.

Hey, thanks PeterSatera! I appreciate the review, as well as your suggestions to improve the WIP. I definitely agree that the balance and length could use some work, so hopefully in the next build you'll see some pretty good improvements! I have a few other pieces in the works, and I hope to have some more music out soon!

Thanks again for your kind words! Even if I don't get noticed, I'm okay with that. I've been on Newgrounds around 11 years now, and I've had a varying level of success with a few of my works, but I'm not really here to be noticed as much as I'm here to improve myself as a composer. To be honest, the thing I look forward to the most is the reviews. That's the only way I've been able to improve myself, and reviews like this definitely help me do that! :)

Thanks again!
