Very Sweet beginning going on a very powerful development. The only thing I have to say is that I would have like to hear some variations into the form.
Keep up the good work!
another great song.
This is such a great song. I can tell you put alot of effort and thought into this song. every thing in this song was so..... um.... i think majestic is the word i'm looking for. The only thing i didn't like about this song is the ending. The ending just didn't seem to fit, kinda like it was off key and it was kinda abrupt. This song and National Army are my 2 favs for this contest. keep up the good work.
First off, you've got a great imagination. I could really picture two figures facing each other preparing to fight to the death. Kudos there- you know how to show scenarios through music!
The entire piece didn't feel quite as "in your face" as I think it could have. I think it's because of a little too much reverb. Your sounds are a bit washed out (are you using Reason?). To help counter this, I'd try and decrease the wetness of the reverb. If you feel it's too dry after tring that, play round with the room size a bit. That'll help get you that big sound I think you're looking for, but still maintain clarity and fidelity of the samples.
I love the harp and mallet instrumnet you used (Are they vibes? The sound slimiar but have a different tonal quality so I'm not sure). They really helped add to the originality of the piece. I'd consider bringing out the brass more, and perhaps trying to fatten it. Giving it a bigger sound will help give the piece a more epic feel, if that's what you're going for.
Overall very well done! I'll be watching you!
Pretty nice, my man.
And to answer your question, yes, I'd like to collab with you.
As for the review:
Man, the dissection's gonna be hard, but I'll go for a shot at it.
Harp- Quaint, good for the beginning. In the orchestral parts, you should put it on minor sevenths for major chords, and possibly 4ths (? may sound weird, but it sounds like a good idea to me) for minor chords.
VIBES! YAYSES!- I love the vibes. yayses. Glad to see someone else saw their potential.
Staccato and pizzicato strings- Pizz. is my favorite effect for strings. It did its job quite nicely.
Trombones-Kinda in the background, maybe it was a french horn or tuba, but i heard a trumpet.
Trumpets-Could have been a french horn. Idk. Good melody instrument, though.
French Horns- My fave instrument. Implemented perfectly.
Drums- Kinda cut through the mix, not very pleasing.
Instruments I would add-
and that's about it.
The form was very nice, and it all flowed quite well.
I loved every single melody in this song.
The harp and bells give it that peaceful feel. The feeling before a surprise attack.
You're just sitting around the camp, not aware that dangers are just over the hill.
You suddenly have his sick feeling in your stomach. Something's wrong. You see arrows coming at you n every which direction.
You and your men fight them off and finally are getting settled again, then a second wave comes at you from the trees. You, your men, and they charge towards each other in the middle of the field.
You can hear nothing but the clashing of metal and the screams of agony.
The fight to the Death.
:) you've painted this picture for me.
Wow! I am flattered. I never knew my music could paint such vivid pictures. Thank you for your insight ;) .
