The Hall Of Kings

Author Comments

The only path to the upper half of the island. Giant cliffs stand on either side, and dangerous wildlife litters the landscape. Giant statues line the cliff walls, created by the ancient inhabitants of the island after their kings, who where sometimes revered as gods.

This is my NGAUC knock out round submission.

Awesome

And this was a nice and awesome piece here the sound quality you bring is really good and amazing I like that this was over four minutes long because it gave the chance to hear all the sound quality but overall this was a beautiful sound of works here and there is no tip from me today because you have already made something really strong and good quality so keep doing what you do best

I like the percussion at the beginning, even if the reverb is a bit excessive. The quirky string instrument that comes in shortly thereafter is great. I love the atmosphere and the foreboding mood, too. The piece has a drone-like quality, with a relatively slow progression. I also think the mix could stand to be a tad louder. In contrast to the creepy mood, the vibes at 1:30 sound somewhat cute and catchy. I would’ve liked to see you come up with a more gradual way of bridging the gap between the cute mood there and the ominous mood of before. I like the breakdown at 2:40, though. You’ve given this piece a decent amount of dynamic contrast despite the drone-like quality. The return of that bizarre stringed instrument at 3:30 helps give the piece some cohesion too. Really engrossing mood here. Despite my compositional complaints, this is solid work, AvapXia. Keep it up!

The beginning was more promising, I've expected somewhat more intense piece, but it's good anyway

Really really love the melodies and overall structure of this piece. Well done!
