A bit of the past eh?
It is like looking from the past into the present, in a sence that it is obvious that the classical influences were already present back then. In the start, though they are grainy and computerised sounding. I liked the synths, reminds me of old video games. I also wasn't entirely fond of the piano at 'some' times, overal they fit in to but occasionaly they hit a few notes that clash.
What would be interesting is if you could Remix the song using your current violin and piano synths (and the like), clean up the pianos a little bit and submit it as a fully classical song?
Think of he previous paragraph as my advanced suggestion for the future when you are, maybe - bored, have writers block or cannot be bothered making something new but wanting to submit something.
Despite the unrefined sound I really like this due to its musical content
On a few parts, things sounded out of place. Like the second time that delayed "riff" came around it sounded fairly out of place and the bit after that sounded slightly dry and lacking substance.
It was still very good. I personaly would clean up those two bits a little bit before I hand it in and then the person listening cannot fault it in any way. But if that kinda thing is what you are looking for go for it.
Good luck Boss
Alright imma list the problem i had with this first. There seemed to be a bit of fuzz at certain part where the sound begins to break up.
But other than that this was awesome. I like how you used classical sounds with modern progressions too.
The drums weren't a problem for me but I thought it may have been more of my kind of thing if the drums weren't there. But its not my music so it's all up to you.
Nice work buddy, I enjoyed it.
Some one is on a mission!
This, really this is awesome. I really liked the epic feel to it. The title sums up the image that can be seen while listening to it. A bunch of M1 tanks rolling accross the desert to go complete their objective.
Or alternately ships sailing into a harbour to bomb the hell out of it. But it is definitely a wartime feel to it.
There really is no constructive criticism to give, except to keep making music.
When i look at your stuff and then listen back to mine I realise I barely have any layers and if anything the drums take up the most layers with cymbals and toms and shizzle. Ya'll got some talented people in the classical section.
Thank you boomsquad, i'm glad you liked the piece, it is currently my champion piece, but I plan that to change tommorow!
As for your own pieces, layers doesn't have to be everything, I may have in fact put too many layers in this piece (8 layers going off at once when the panflute kicks in), and that is not always a good thing, sometimes simplicity is key.
Thanks for the review ^^.
This being my second review for some of your songs, it seems you definitely got consistency in chugging out good music. Grooves are great and the melody and ambience work excellently over them. I am not a big solo man so i can't say much on that. I dont know why i just prefer to not have big majestic solos and that is the only problem I have with this submission.
I especialy like how you seem to favour the ride cymbal over the hi-hat for the time keeping, it gives everything a smoother feel rather.
How about checking some of my stuff and telling me where I suck eh? I need criticism!
This....is just beautiful. The lack of diversity is what makes it so good, just a little snare sound change and a fill and it is sorted.
The reason why I like this song so much is because you found a good riff and only subtly changed parts of it. Most songs I hear everday dont catch my attention properly because the good bits are only 5 seconds long.
This reminds me of cruising along at 40 mph back home from a long but good night with noone or anything in sight and no sound, only the sound of the engine and tires on the road.
This, I like this, the shitty mic worked wonders for the tone on the vocals. I always wanted to implement a radio chatter kind of sound. The midi'ish kind of sound, sounds a bit funny on its own but when the vocals come in it moulds together quite nicely.
Nice work dude.
There is a link to my stuff 'IF' you want a listen. Sorry I just need to promote myself a little bit.
Thanks! I'll definitely check your stuff out later. It takes me a long time to get around to things though... back to work I go...
Could a sound be called gorgeous?
I am what people may consider picky, not picky in a sence that I only listen to one genre (like metal or whatnot), but hard to please. It has nothing to do with how technical or happy/sad/angry it sounds. It just has to hit the right buttons.
This my friend does.
Everything about this is just right, the sounds used, placement, volume.
I love it.
I'm glad you like it too, I spent a long time getting this just right. I know its minimalism but that made it just as hard getting the right sounds etc. thanks for the awesome review brutha.
