Cs - 'Smash the Night'

Author Comments

Finally a not earkilling piece of video game music. I'm really proud of myself. Hope you like it too.

It was a long process, I wrote it and rewrote it, mastered and remastered, mixed and remixed. (Not really but sounds good, isn't it?) I had to make it perfect because I've got some complaint about my last video game piece...

Oh yeah, and why Smash the Night? I think every good game piece contains the smashing so the music has to do it too.


Sharpedo is leveling up!

Thanks. It wasn't really meant to this but if you think so. I have a feeling you enjoyed it according to this. Thank you.
(Ehh, another Pokemon player...;D)

The loop is smooth and the mood here is very bright and fun. I can tell it's mastered very loudly, and I can hear all of the instruments clearly. However, I think the snare is a little weak throughout the piece. I would've liked to hear a stronger off-beat (generally, the snare and/or clap should be the loudest sound in the mix). The melody is also a little all-over-the-place tonally. You display a good sense of harmony for the first half of the piece, and while there aren't any clashing notes or dissonances later on, the melody is a bit too frantic and involved for the casual listener to grasp onto it. It's just a little over-stimulating. I'd suggest repeating a couple of pitch patterns within the melodic section from :29 to the end, and simplifying the rhythm. That way, your melodies will be more memorable and catchy. Overall good work! Keep at it, Csucskos! ^^

Yes. I've realised long time ago that I can't make catchy music. The reason is: I don't want to make too simple music. So I change the melody here and there, put some bonus instruments in,add a different melody to the bass than the main melody, twist the rhytm a bit and so on. After this I find that the whole song is a mess and there's no real melody. But for me everything is clear (or nearly ;D) because I've heard it many times during the making. This is the problem I guess... Simple but still valuable music making. It is hard. (I don't want to be cocky. I know that sometimes only the piano plays and the notes are all eighths. Hey, I'm lazy! I really don't feel the balance.)

Simplifying the rhythm... Last time you complained about the monotone rhythm, and now... ;) I'll look for the good balance anyways.

All in all I'm really grateful for your comments and I'm sure they will help me. Thank you.
