downright amazing song, but there's a problem, it can't be used in gd
Sounds cool! I think what you were going for was something grand sounding, but the chromaticism in the melody didn't contribute towards that goal. I would advise sticking tightly to a single scale with this cinematic type of stuff. Also, try not to have a low instrument play a melody unless it's a solo. Overall though, sounds well put together and nicely structured with the gigantic crescendos. Cool!
A few side tips: Try to use interesting harmonies! If you listen to John Williams, he does this often (e.g., he uses chromatic mediants in Star Wars). Other types of "out-there" harmonies include: neapolitan chords, secondary dominants, common tone resolution, the list goes on.
Shoehorn some big skips in your melodies! Again, John Williams does this a ton. Just listen to Star Wars or the Superman theme. Adding skips, for whatever reason, makes the melody more memorable. Try it out, seriously!
Ahh ok. Damn, thanks for the review! I'm only a year or so into music theory at the moment so I'm not up to date with all the super fancy chord progressions and stuff lol, but I'll try and keep your tips in mind. And yeah I agree with the low octave instruments situation, I kept them in there to see how people thought of it cus sometimes little things like that make it better for others but worse for some :p. Anyways, thanks again! Glad you liked it, and have a good day 8)
