This is my submission to the latest One Hour Compo

http://compo.thasauce.net/rounds/view/OHC607


The theme seemed to be boats on the beach. I came up with a story of a storm interrupting the peace at the scene.


Lich suggested that I compose a piece using different tuning, so I set the master tuning in Kontakt from 440 to 428.


I composed this in around an hour so I didn't have time to humanize the instruments or attempt to emulate a real hall. I hope you guys can still enjoy it. This might get taken down soon, so you might want to download it.

It does have quite the melancholy edge to it, the frequency shift has changed the timbre of everything (especially the strings). A much more stormy, moments-before-disaster vibe throughout most of the piece. The kind of vibe I'm always down for ;)

Solid work on a one-hour time limit l a d. Humanization and also the mix sounds alright considering the time limit, I'm sure if you had longer you'd probably be tweaking it some more.

Everratic responds:

Yeah, I think so too. I'm really liking the timbre of the violin here. The tone shift + nonvibrato gives it a pristine sound.

Regarding the mix and humanization, the main things I would change are creating a better hierarchy during the busier section so the melody is on top and make the "majestic horn" sound a little more dynamic and smooth.

Thank you for the review and idea!
