I love it, it's haunting in its repetition. It's wonderful for what you've created, but I think the only thing I'm missing as a listener was a really dark section something to drop me super low so that when your first theme comes back again I'm just dying inside. But I love the jazzy/old time feel of this piece and I was super happy to see your submission on my follows haha. I can't remember the last song I really liked from you, but I remember it being a much different style than this and I love that after so long you've adopted different sounds :)
I love the beggining of this, I really like this style. Kind of like a classical- hip hop fusion type sound. Around 1:05 I dont really like that, I dont feel much of a transition, but I love the section! haha. Really a nice job, Im surprised there aren't more comments on this.
Thanks! :D Your feedback is much appreciated.
This is a fun listen. Im not really in a position to judge this type of music though. however, I can say I really like listening to it. Are these real recorded voices? Or did you use a program? either way they sound great. I could see a choir group doing something like this, I love it.
it a program saddly D,: it call jampack Voices for garageband and logic (studio or express)
Nice intro, its soft and beautiful like almost every single submission on here, but it has an emotion attached that most composers on this site fail to invoke. Lots of expression in the plucked string solos. Moving into a new section, it fit perfectly with the intro, I like the low brass and timpani and how its fading in and out. That solo instrument is georgous, just by the way. Ok, I can see where you are going, reiterating the first statement, but inside im kind of hoping for a build up or something new, I feel like its taking just a hair too long. I think thats a pretty common way authors lose the interest of their listeners, is without enough transition. Alright we made a transition, but its back to the low brass and timpani once again. This piece is beautiful, but in every beautiful piece there is at least one huge moment. One of those moments where the listeners began to feel sad, that moment that births tears, that one moment that makes the listener wish he or she had listened to nothing else ever in their lives, because the one thing they're listening to at that one moment is so beautiful, they feel like they've never known music. I never once got that feeling, and in a piece as well written as this, one of those sections is absolutely necessary. Everything about this piece is beautiful, and executed perfectly, it's just not as elaborated as one might hope.
Perhaps you were thinking of a crescendo. You're right, there wasn't really a big "buildup" near the end.
This is in no sense a "classical" piece of music
Classical is both an instrumentation and a style, this passes for neither. However nice it may sound, I can't get pass that fact. Now, the piece is a bit redundant. Im 1:30 in and bored out of my mind. I dont hear much direction. Finally a melody has emerged, in no way a classical melody, but it's a pretty well written solo. But as I listen to it I begin to feel that awkwardness, the redundancy, the "how much longer is this song" feeling. the end felt terribly underdeveloped, I didnt feel like the song was over, but the sound stopped playing.
The beggining has absolutely no classical feel to it. I hear a lot of cool things going on, but a beggining like that has to become something. As I listen to this song, I see no direction, I hear no direction. Im not sure where the story is going and it's increasingly difficult to create a story for this. The music was simply notes, placed on the score correctly, but without emotion.
Its a very nice piece, the beggining is wonderful. But I dont feel like it ties in with the rest of the song besides the melody. If I hear a string quartet type ensemble in the beggining then Id expect the piece to either be centered around those initial instruments, or when the rest of the instruments joined in, it would be nice to hear a score for an entire orchestra. While the clarinet sounds nice, I dont like that its the soloist the whole way through. now if you had started the piece out with the full instrumentation I would like the clarinet as a soloist way more. That doesnt excuse the fact that the piece you wrote is beautiful, and it has a classical feel, which is getting harder and harder to find in the "classical" section. The melodies are completely original sounding and the harmonies are rich and beautiful. The percussion is executed perfectly, all in all it is a very nice piece.
Nice into, but I feel like that crescendo could have been more spread out, it got really loud too quick, and thats not always a bad thing but I didn't like it in this situation. All of the instruments are blending beautifully. But that first solo, i think it was an oboe, felt a little out of place. I love the fact you paused before taking it to the next section, and it sounds great, but I almost thought I was listening to another song for a second, the transition wasnt terrible but not ideal either. Beautiful solo, lots of room for expression, and I love that. Nice suspended chords, it sounds great. Again another well written solo, lots of room for expression. I like how it's starting to build back up, but then I become dissapointed with the ending. You've got this huge melody line going, you're introducing a few new instruments and then abruptly it gets cut off. The chimes in the end are nice, but I would love to hear a more developed ending.
Very helpful, thanks for taking the time to write a review. It does kind of jump all over the place. I like the middle sections of the different themes but I'm still learning how to end my pieces.
It sounds good, the beggining with the pizzicato strings is very catchy. I didnt like whatever you used to produce the melody line though, I feel like something better could have been substituted. When that mallet melody comes in, its way too much. It takes away from the melody so much, if you would have waited until the first melody line dropped out to bring the mallet linie out it would have been ten times more effective. However the song is nice, and I enjoyed listening to it.
The beginning is soft, and to be honest when I first started listening I thought "Ugh, here we go again, another loser posting some crappy mass produced song in the classical section." But it was so much more than that, and even though I felt like ive heard that intro on this site a million times before something abuot it was just so much more beautiful than the rest. And when the cymbal roll came in and the strings started playing their little counter melody I knew this song would be worth it. But I wasn't even expecting it to build up to the section starting at a minute. I love a good snare entrance, and you executed it perfectly. Its beautiful, and its inspirational. The only bad thing I have to say is it could have gotten bigger. I feel like it got to soft too soon, you could have upped it just one more level before coming back down.
Little did he know.. I'm just another loser posting some crappy mass produced song in the classical section.
