I can’t count how many times I had goosebumps when listening to this, over and over again. I always have a habit of checking out my followers’ music, and I came across this. I have very tough standards when it comes to evaluating people’s music, but this one just blew my mind!
Ok enough of blabla, lets get into the details:
The fade-in in the beginning just before the first piano note hit was very subtle yet amazing, you don’t really have to make your song epic af, subtle details can completely ascend a song to a new level, and it is exactly what happens here!
At 00:11, the chord is a major B flat chord, which in your F minor song, is a dorian chord. I don’t know what other people think about the dorian mode, but I personally adore this music style, so yeah, already 11 seconds in and I’m super satisfied.
Across the intro, I can hear a faint ambient sound of water or bird, this adds a lot of calmness to the atmosphere.
At 00:27, the reverbed bass drum or thud is very soothing as it lacks high frequency.
So far I can hear four components of your intro before 00:47, a piano, a bass pad, a background faint pad playing higher chords and an ambient sound. Nothing missing and nothing out of place. Great job!
At 00:48, I can hear a repeating plucked saw synth with a quiet kick and some high chords. These agitate the song a bit, bridging gradually towards the first drop.
At 01:25, I love the apparition of a sound kinda like an emergency alarm, really sets the mood and leads us to the drop!
Great drop! Got me dancing a bit (since I’m a dubstep producer)! However, I would’ve liked it more if it was a bit more stereo, especially the growl at 01:34. But it is just a minor complaint in a sea of amazements!
The flute at 02:06... Words cannot explain how beautiful that was! Since I’m Asian, there are a lot of flutes in the traditional songs of my country, and I have always loved how they sound, especially when leading a serene part of a song.
Another dorian part at 02:47! Sorry, I had to point it out...
Lets talk about the 03:02 part: I see what you wanted to do here. You wanted to have a kinda orchestral drop where everything is super epic and big, but you don’t have very good sound libraries that feature true orchestral instruments. If you ever lay your hands on Kontakt libraries, you will absolutely love it, even the most basic library that comes with the software itself has some pretty damn good content! As a side note, I feel like this part of the song should really have some brass ensemble and French horn going on, as they will double the epicness (is that even a word?).
The last drop is awesome, theres really nothing to say about it.
And there is the outro, a very good fading out outro that perfectly concludes the song.
In general, I feel like the song could be mastered a bit more and thus making it loud and boosting the drops. If you want me to master it for you, I would be very happy to do it for free!
PS: I just saw your age, I’m super glad that people of our age make incredible music, keep it up! I hope that you will continue making music, as a talent like this is very very rare in the world!
