LOL. Reminds me of music cues from a 90's crime drama/thriller... Probably with Harrison Ford. Maybe the plot goes like this:
Harrison is a married prosecutor for the DA's office. His colleague and lover is brutally murdered. He is assigned to the case to find the killer. When word of their relationship leaks, he is taken off the case and arrested for her murder. In the end, he narrowly escapes prison and it turns out to be his wife who killed her. :P (this actually pretty much an actual movie).
Just had to share that, nothing really to add for critique. :/ sorry. Maybe some strings?
Good work nonetheless.
That's not too far off from what genre I imagined. I was actually thinking of film noir kind of stuff. :D
With how much of a movie guru you are, maybe you should go into screen writing as a side job. I think you could come up with some interesting twists, albeit a wee bit out there, lol.
Thanks for the review! And upload a new piece already!
Good work man.
As i sit and listen to this, the first thing that strikes me is the interesting bell sound at the beginning with the high string pedal point... giving it not only a lonely feeling, but lends some interest. After that the piano is tremendous, and the string swells give it a nice lush sound. Also, the clarinet coming every once in a while gives a nice variety.
Then at 1:27, when you pick it up, it gives a real nice sense of forward motion to it which is almost always a good thing for a second section.
The chords are simple, but that is often good for trying to convey what I think what you were... And as far as the sounds themselves, I don't really see anything to fix, if anything just a bit more reverb on the higher strings...
I thoroughly enjoyed this man.
Lol this song is pretty old by now :P
thanks alot for the review, and I'm really glad you liked it^^
As for reverb and mastering I have gone a long way forward in that and my songs sound alot fuller than my earlier stuff (this)
You've really captured (at least as I see it) the esscence of love my friend...
The melody is memorable and beautiful, The chord progression is simple, but effective... The intro gives a feeling of unending longing. The new section at :57 took me by suprise, but in a good way. Then when you go back into the first section but with more arppegios in the left hand gives a fufillment of the endless longing created earlier with the first section... As if someone you thought was unatainable, but they thought the same about you...
The final cadence at the end is simply divine my friend...
woah, thanks alot tamadrum :)
I'm so glad such a good musician thinks so highly of this song :)
i'm gonna go cry now xD
PS is the review score meant to be 9?
Quite good I shall say!
Some pretty good ideas swirling around there...
The melody is pretty unique, and memorable, and that's always a good thing. And the piece on the whole is enjoyable, but if anything a little repetitive... perhaps on the 2nd to last time through you could change the melody a little more?
Also, I have to agree with some of the reviews below me... At 0:14 the Bass comes way up, while the rest of the piano stays down in volume. It's not too distracting or anything but this could have been a pretty good climax if you crescendoed into it with the piano as a whole. The melding between the hands you mentioned could be a really good idea, just if they both eased into the dynamic levels.
Good job on the whole though! :)
You've got a good start... It reminds me slightly of a detective game/movie or something of that sort.
Try adding on to the length, it just seems empty because all there is going on throughout the song is the pizz strings and the oboe solo... Try adding on a new section with some more woodwinds, brass, or light percussion.
Thanks for the great review!
However, I do not plan on adding anymore instrumentation or duration to this song. It's supposed to be as light and simple as it is, nothing more than that.
I really believe we need some space in music.
Pretty dam good
You seem to have a good sense of melody and chord leading... I only wish that the piano would have some reverb on it, without the reverb it ends up sounding a little dry.
The little cymbal and bass drum swells throughout really add some flavor to it, Good work there...
The interchanging solos really help move the piece along... as if your looking back on that war you described from a different perspective every time.
Not much I would change with this, except maybe the trumpet entrance 2:13, It seemed slightly overbearing compared to everything else that was going on. So maybe bring it down in the mix a little bit to help.
It's wonderfully sad...
But also has an air of hope for a new day in it... almost as if looking back on your life, and deciding that you won't hurt someone you love ever again, no matter the conditions...
The new section at 1:48 is extremely beautiful, and a nice change of pace. The chord progression is very nice, and not one that is overused. I didn't even realize it looped until halfway through the main theme. So good job there.
I think it has a good chance in the MAC8, This is an impressive piece on your part.
Well, thanks alot Tamadrum - that really means alot coming from someone as experiences as you ;-)
Pretty... dam... good...
I was extremely impressed by this song... Not only were the drums interesting and refreshing, alot of your melodies through the song were interesting and fun to listen to.
I've tried to do glitch type-stuff, but it NEVER comes out that good. The piano is also a nice touch.
This is some good stuff
...reminds me of the good 'ole days playing mario or other old school games like that. I can easily tell you getter better with Fl... sounds really good.
At 1:18 it has this syncopated bass hit part that I really like, the accent pattern you chose was really interesting there. :)
It also loops suprisingly well!
I was impressed overall with what you've done... nothing really stood out that needed to be fixed or anything.
Good job man
Thanks alot once more tamadrum.
I'm glad you enjoyed it. Lol i can just imagine mario being shot at "Oh, ano! Amy moustache is agone!"
You have a really beautiful chord progression going... with really good melody lines. I'm impressed. :)
Throughout the piece you have those cresscendos with the bass note leading down... they need to come down just a bit, they aren't to the point where they distract from the melody but it jumps out at you...
After the first string solo, the piano stops... This may be personal preference, but I think it would flow a bit better in between sections to keep an underlying part going.
Over all, really good job zero123. Your definantly improving. :)
yeah, if I made this again I would definately use that suggestion but this was made in my early FL days.
Thanks so much for the nine!!
And thanks for reviewing and listening.
