This will probably be my last real upload until I get actual VSTs and legitimate sounds, which will be a while from now.

This is the beginning of a musical story:

Roused by the chiming of dozens and dozens of clocks, the clockmaker's son walks downstairs from his bedroom, preparing for another exhausting day of working on the Sparrow. Once, the metallic chorus had seemed exotic and exciting, but it now feels more like a harbinger of doom. As he enters the workshop, he sees his father already at work, fitting together gears and notched cylinders. Clocks line the walls of the room. Time consumed their lives, it defined their existence, it made up every waking moment of their day. And yet, the clockmaker never seemed to have any time for his son.

See ya,

Another simply astounding piece! The piano is amazing, and it really sets a feel to the song. I like the story you put in the description, it really lets out what the song is saying.

Amoris is better lol. This one isn't that bad though, still has many catchy(for me) rhythms

Miyolophone responds:

Thanks! Though maybe next time you can tell me why Amoris is better so I can improve in the future...

Bravo, bravo. Guess what's going on my favorite songs list.

Anyway, nothing really criticism-related I have to say besides the fact that volume control between different parts was poor, in some places; that's only to be expected without high quality EQ.

Also, just wondering. Is that flute starting around the second minute mark real (as in you or someone you know played it), or is it artificial? I want to know, because it sounds very real. I would know, considering how involved in the band I am.

Thank you, StrikerEZ, for helping me slowly infiltrate the favorite songs lists of various artists so I can eventually hack so many accounts that I take over Newgrounds.

Just kidding :D Thank you so much for the praise! Yeah, mixing and sound design are not my strong suits, but rest assured that I'm working on it. Thanks for telling me how to improve, it's definitely more helpful than general praise. (Not that I have anything against general praise.)

Surprisingly, that flute is actually artificial— and not only that, but a fairly low quality artificial flute, as it came included in my DAW. It is one of the more realistic sounding instruments in there, though... also possibly made more realistic by how I used it (I hope), or how bad the other instruments sound (I hope not)....

This is really good. Especially without any great VSTs. Just goes to show that you don't need a ton of great programs to make great music :)

Miyolophone responds:

Exactly :) My synths are really lacking, and the sounds I'm using are frustratingly inherently quiet, but that doesn't mean I can't make do...
