I like the percussion at the beginning. The vocal samples are beautiful, but somehow the uniform rhythm they have until :26 doesn’t vibe well with me. Also, they have a bit of a strained quality before :26 that doesn’t fit the mood of the piece well IMO. I like the sense of climax thereafter, and the part at 1:40 offers some much-needed structural relief. The ending felt a little rushed, and I think you could’ve fleshed out this piece a lot more. That said, the instrumentation and composition here are very good overall. I thought the production quality was quite high. The instruments are blended together so well, and the texture feels rich and full throughout. Well done!


Great track! It really takes you away around the 1 minute mark! Also great use of high quality aesthetic pleasing samples :)

Looks like you will be my competition this year! Goodluck :)

Thank you very much, and likewise!

This sounds very sweet and has some nice ideas and melodies. The instrument choice is very nice too! The timing and placement of the vocal stems at about 02:01 sound a little rushed, but I very much enjoyed listening to this. Newgrounds needs more quality Celtic music!!

JeremyKingVA responds:

Thank you very much -- and I agree wholeheartedly in regards to NG needing more Celtic music!

Funny you should bring up the timing at 2:01, because I just took note of that for the first time myself after uploading here, haha. I created a number of different mixes for this track and shuffled things around, and I completely glossed over that somehow. It's a simple enough fix, so I might just boot up the project file, re-render the track, and replace this with the corrected version. :)
