First time? Daaaang. This is some sweet stuff.
Great for a first time orchestration. While it may not actually be that good of a song, I have to give you a bravo for doing so well on your first orchestration.
reminds me of assassins creed for some reason..this would be perfect for when your riding a horse. oh, and go play assassins creed high, it is the best experience w/videogames ever!
good vibe, well mixed, a bit cliche.
This song really does scream arabian to me. However the Arabian motifs you have going on in there are pretty generic. I mean I hear them in nearly every Arabian oriented song, which I suppose is a difficult step to overcome, unless you study Arabian music it is difficult to create something without using what many consider "the source" of Arabian music.
The song loops perfectly! So tops off to that.
The mix of instruments were all good, nothing seemed to clash with anything else, nothing wanted attention at the expense of another. The trumpets were also well written.
If there is going to be a desert level in CC, I'm fairly sure I know which song is going to make it :D!
All in all a valiant effort, keep up the good fight and keep em coming!
It sounded too arabic because of the harmonic minor... But you know, this would make a great god of war song...
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
