This intricate piece is very interesting. I do think that the vocals are very well done. it almost reminds me of, well a funeral march and the fall of someone who just couldn't go on. yes funerals are serious and solemn. this was a wonderful piece overall, keep up the good work. you have quite an ear for music.


Ah this is the type of track I appreciate most.

Dying is serious business indeed, and how somebody dies is what makes it serious in my opinion, at least musically. This song made me think of a hero struggling to stay on their feet as they trudge along, and then they finally collapse.

The ending was a tad strange, I felt it just kinda unravelled, the beginning however, was immaculate. It may not be original, but the fact you can recreate something of this nature entails you are able to contemplate the structure, and that means when you do grow a style, it will rock all teh way into Mordor and back!

The choir work is my favourite part, really gave that feeling I was looking for.

I wonder if reverbing that piano more may have made the sound more effective.

In pieces like this, chords are always a must. I don't think i've ever heard an epic piece without chords, chords are like candy to epic pieces!

In any case, great work TheAmateurAnimator, i'm really pleased to see you take these strides, I wonder what you will bring to the table 6 months from now. Keep up the good fight!

TheAmateurAnimator responds:

It's great that I get a review from you! I like the beginning part as well, not sure what I was thinking at the end...I've always loved the choir, and use it whenever I can.

I can't believe that I forgot chords! And it's a great idea of yours to reverb the piano...I never thought of that!

I'm so glad that an artist of your caliber can see potential in me! Thanks!

Good sound, clear color

Sounds very nice, I like the piece. What vocal synth did you use? Its quite good. I look forward to listening to your future work.

-Alittle short tho

-Also try building an overarching structure to it, adding the theme melody at the begining then at the climax for exmaple...


TheAmateurAnimator responds:

The choir was made using a Papelmedia soundfont with four reeverb effects applied to it. Thanks for the review!

Hmmm sounds nice

Well it does, however it is short, which make me sad because you could have segwayed into a battle theme after the piano solo.You know using some fast low war drums,a semi fast major 0-4-7 or a minor 0-4-9 scale on the piano, would have sounded really good.But nontheless this has a nice sound to it.

Sicerely- Eviance

TheAmateurAnimator responds:

Thanks. I've always been good at slow stuff, but I could use some practice on fast things.

holy shit...

man, why do make this? this is unoriginal! You know you can find similar music on other web site? Do you copie?
Try making something else!

TheAmateurAnimator responds:

I don't really have much of a style yet. That's probably what makes this sound so unoriginal.
