While browsing the art section, I came across this art of Kel'Thuzad. I was inspired to do something dark and sinister that reflected on whats happening in the world today, thus, Kel'Thuzad wanted to spread the plague across the world. I always wanted to work with an organ and this was my chance. Hope you enjoy.

Inspired Art by LadyLoth:


Composition: PrintMusic2010

Editing: FL Studios 20

Vst: EastWest Symphonic Orchestra

Wow, I remember when EastWest used to be the holy grail.

Composition wise, this is really great. I feel the composition itself would be best served if it were written in FL, all the pains that would be to do. For some reason, every instrument I take into something like printmusic doesn't really alter velocity between instances of the same note, or intonate properly. I'm hearing a lot of that here with floppy attack on the organ, not any real humanization going on. If it were at all possible I would put ensembles or trios on those staccatos so they don't sound like a lone cellist, if that makes sense.

As for EastWest falling out of style somewhat, I would see if I couldn't get my hands on Kontakt and Spitfire's free LABS libraries, Native Instruments' starter pack, etc. There are a ton of free Kontakt libraries that will blow your mind out there. It's a sin not to take advantage imo.

Beyond that, enjoyed the listen.

Thanks for coming out to NGUAC!

Thx for the review, I'll look into those libraries you mention.

I love the busier sections. You effectively established a dark and sinister mood, and I feel like the composition says a lot about the character.

I found the repetitive and prominent organ line difficult to listen to for a long period of time.

I think it would be nice if there were some interspersed unexpected major chords, which I found can be quite useful in enhancing a dark atmosphere.

I wish there was a section that provided some contrast from the rest of the piece. Perhaps you could have made a lighter section that has the same mood but with lighter instrumentation, such as flutes, celesta, glockenspiel, etc.

I enjoyed this a lot despite these minor gripes :)

Thx for your input. I greatly appreciate it.
