This is probably the last song I'll submit. I'm gonna start making albums. Rate+Review



Rated 5 / 5 stars

quite impressive!

Its sad to hear that you're going to leave to make albums, but I do believe that you are at that level where if you wanted to you could make some money off your skill.

This is a pretty damn good piece, lets begin our review.

The beginning, echoed and reverbed progression... so spacey, like the passing of time, a cold large monolith perhaps, a cold empty place... the feel was absolutely wonderful. I actually don't agree with Chiron(Mawkeetus) when he says mix it up, it is true that it is predictable, but I believe it is BECAUSE it is predictable that it is enjoyable. Knowing what to expect and then relishing it when it arrives. Or at least thats what I think.

When the song changes around 1:14 it does sound very classical classical, then again I suppose that means it belongs here unlike any of my pieces really, which should be catagorized under orchestral or instrumental.

at 1:39 when it becomes so much softer. That was a rather welcome relief, I just sat back and let the subtle notes sink in.

at 2:25 the melody changed, and this melody was rather interesting. Something sad, something hopeful, fragile, and somewhat left in the background. There was some dissonant notes at 3:01, may have just been an error while playing.

the power of the song begins to seep back in at 3:30 on, where you are using more force to send out your image. I can see what Chiron(Mawkeetus) meant when he said a segment reminded him of Fur Elise, at 3:52 around there, was the part in question.

In any case, it takes on a waltz kind of flavour, and proceeds it's rather remarkable story.

The ending was indeed abrupt, but I quite liked it.

In any case, it's an excellent track, really, if this is your final piece, you have decided to leave by gracing us quite a great work of art. No matter what you choose, I wish you the best of luck, take care DeadEndRoad!

DeadEndRoad responds:

Thanks for review.

Still gonna explore Newgrounds every once in a while. Every once in a while I'll probably submit something, like an idea or something.

You were actually dead on. That is excactly what I was trying to do in that song.

I don't think I have submitted enough meaningful piano songs (the improves (typo, improv!) didn't work out well) so I might submit one more. Those are what I do the best at. Come back soon to see it!

Thanks again (isn't that how all my endings are?)! I hope to talk again sometime. I really like your music but I don't have the right sounds to do that theme. Even though it was $6000 dollars, it didn't come with everything.

Ok... so, now bye!

im thoroughly impressed. i find it hard to believe that you are 13 and creating music of this caliber. where the hell did you get your skills? either you aren't 13 or you're a musical prodigy. you just made a fan. gl with ur future works.

DeadEndRoad responds:

My mom said that I started playing things like Star Wars at age 3 on a toddler keyboard they bought for me.

At 5 years old, the first time I remember seeing a piano, I started playing something in D minor (I think) and showed my parents. The next day they asked if I wanted to play piano lessons.

That piano teacher I still have today. I actually have two now. The one I've known helps with my improvising a little (but I do the music myself) and the other helps with theory and playing written music.

Secretely I'm actually 12 but I can't join when I'm 12 (I actually joined when I was 11).

Well, thanks for your review coMpLekS! (wOOt! I might have a fan!)

Great dynamics...!

i thought this was a great, emotional, story telling kind of song... awsome dynamics, cool transitions, nice low bass parts, really dynamic, predictable chords... it is more exciting if you throw a couple unexpected accidentals in there to keep the listener enjoying the song, the beginning had a nice echoey feel to it. Near the end there was some nice hard well set chords that really ended the song well, untill the real end which was a dissapointment, because it was just an abrupt resolution and not faded out or anything...but hey i could be wrong, you may have been going for that feel.
The reason that i gave you a 7 for originality was because it reminded me of the "classic classical" songs such as Fur Elise at one point and it had the style of Beehtoven thats that.and there was one part that was just not right it was completely dissonent... i dont know if it was just a mistake or if it was intended to sound that way.either way it didn't effect the song much.
a ---five--- and a -download- from me. this was a great song and i do hope that you dont stop. you should just keep making them and composing and keep making albums and more and more money... but, please dont stop.
After you read this or when the time is convienent, go to my account and check out my songs...i have a classical coming out soon called "Destined Apocolypse" that you might like, considering most of your songs are classical. there is a demo that you sould listen to. its low quality and every thing, just whipped it up to give a taste of the real thing.
But id like to hear what you think of it though, along with my other songs. my songs have 'mawkeetus' written in front of the title.
