BRUCE: Bretta's Theme

So here's a piece with a slightly Irish/celtic touch!

It's the final piece by me made for BRUCE. It took quite some time, since I've been working off and on between other projects (and just life) in order to finish the tracks. But now, at least the score should be complete :)

This piece basically has two different sections, and a weird transition between them. The first one uses mostly instruments that are associated with Irish folk songs. Unfortunately, I didn't have any really high quality ones; I used what I could find from the Factory Library that comes with Kontakt 5.
For the second part, I used Stormdrum 3 and EWQLSO (The Maverick for the piano), giving a more cinematic feel.

It's a bit of a weird one, but I hope you enjoy it nonetheless!
Thank you for listening :333

I remember really liking some stuff you did for BRUCE, and this is no exception. I love the echo-y intro and subsequent melodic section at :15. It's a little minimalistic, yet has a lot of character to it all the same. My one complaint would have to be the samples - their lack of authenticity detracts from the mood a little bit. The pace of the piece is pretty quick structurally, with a lot of transitional moments, yet it seems like it would fit well with a video game intro that gives some context to the story. :) The ending is really majestic and bright, too. Solid composition! I hope you can post more often in the near future. ;)

I agree about the samples! I didn't have any others of the particular instruments I was asked to include though. I probably could've tried humanizing them a bit more though :V

BRUCE was nice in that it often brought me a bit out of my comfort zone (apart from the ambient stuff). But, there was also less freedom in what I could do. There is complete change huge in the middle of the piece, partly because I wanted to try out something else, and partly because I had kinda done what I wanted with the other instruments (The samples are a bit better towards the end).

I spent 16 hours yesterday composing! I made a track for a contest. I'll likely upload it to NG once the judging is over :)
In my estimation, it's better than most things I've uploaded lately :D

Thank you for reviewing, as always!
