Dark's Adventure: Dragonslayer

Author Comments

So I was invited by Wondermeow to score his second Dark Adventures film after the first one turned out pretty good for what it was, even going as far as to land Daily Second Place. I delayed quite a bit, because first, I had the video of Mio/Homura EXTEND to prepare for, and I also had very bad abdominal pains after said video was recorded, and these persisted until Friday.

When the pains subsided a bit, I sat down and cracked on with this. I played harp, drum and tambourine, and sequenced the rest.

So, did I tell you how much I love early music? And did I tell you how much I love blending elements of early music with today's orchestral stuff? If you haven't already known this, I hope that this may tell you just how much I enjoyed doing this. I still feel the passion within my veins. Of particular note, I still feel the drum pounding through my body after the piece has been finished.


Nice song but the drums are too loud (:

I'mma need your help with EQing that, if you don't mind. ^_^' Will send you a PM, hopefully you might be able to help me out on that.

This is nice thou the drums are a little ear pircing in 00:47 for example and the violin is panned a little to much to the left imo ( im on headphones) .
the harp is great i would add a little bell or something in the background near the end part but thats just me .
but overall great piece :D

Thank you! Very glad you enjoyed it.

In orchestral music violins are way to the left unless it's a solo (there were also 1st violins). I could perhaps compromise by moving it a little more to the centre.

I'd have loved bells -- actually, I'd have loved ancient cymbals, those that leave a nice little ding! rather than a crash, those ones that are suspended on a string and you just ring them together. One day, hopefully...

As for the drums, I concur. I've asked Paranoidhumanoise for help mixing the drums; it's a different kind of animal from regular drums because there's no reverberation chamber in most medieval drums. You count on the environment to reverberate it for you (meaning, you're best playing it in a stone building, a church, a town hall...). He's given me some pointers. I'm going to see if I can't make it work.

This is great, though i guess i feel a little let down with the drums. I kind of wish they had a fuller sound but being a more medieval type song i can picture a couple lads in a tavern using a tabletop as a drum while another plays a violin lol Otherwise this was really well done, i like the fact you added in more acoustic elements like a harp and tambourine. They sound real nice, great work
