I am very satisfied with this one. I think it has a real intro. (Or kind of.) This is very rare from me. ;)

The title just came into my mind on a night, but it has nothing to do with castles.

Easy melodies and a little magic with the panning. There's nothing else in this song. Anyway it somehow happened to be 3 minutes long. I hope you like it.


=== This is an NGAUC Audition Round Review ===

I just have to say, your description is really funny because it sounds exactly like how I used to write descriptions. I would always name my songs after totally random things that didn’t have to do with the song. :D Anyways, this is a pretty neat piano only song. However, it falls victim to some of the common problems of piano songs composed on the DAW. First, the loudness of the notes are relatively static, making it feel more like a robot played the song than a human. Also, the energy level stays the same pretty much throughout the song. If it had a slower section, I feel like it would be a much more effective song.

Mini-scores (See http://johnfn.newgrounds.com/news/post/936953 for what this means and how to improve)
Mixing: n/a
Arrangement: 1+/4
Composition: 2/4
Overall (this is not an average): 5/10

Thank you, I guess.
No, no, sorry. I mean I am really satisfied with this review and happy to have a soooooo long one. This was actually useful. The lesson was: You can't give good title, You can't mix, arrange and compose, the overall is bad, BUT you are doing great. (Yeah it seems I am a bit offended so don't take me really serious.)

I have to say that although I can play the piano, while composing I never use it. Just sit down, write the melody on the computer (which has come to my mind while I was doing something like cycling) and then write some chords and thats all. Sometimes I change the piano sound to something else and then add drums, bass and other bonuses. (Usually I write the melody to the instrument which will play it and only sometimes I first write on piano and then change it.)

I actually sometimes just sit down to the piano and improvise but there is no real melody just the chords. (I can't really improvize.) After that these 'songs' are decaying because I play them on the piano and then forget them. Never do with them something on the computer.

And I don't know how to 'humanize' the loudness.

SOoo. Thanks again and I will try to improve my skills. (I don't know how to do that so I will keep making this 'bad' music.)

I hope we will meet on the next contest. ;) (Or somewhere else.)

Could use some more dynamics and repeating patterns, but otherwise great job on such a long track!

Csucskos responds:

Thank you. The dynamics are lacking I know but I don't think more repeats are needed. Why? This is (a kind of) classical music. (Or meant to be it.)

I'm glad you like it. Now I'm working on the big finaly of this season but it isn't really going anywhere. Anyway check back later.

This blew me away with its energy. I'm thinking of a cat on a burning stove.

Csucskos responds:

I'm happy you like it. But what about the cat?
