I think it's a great piece. Very well orchestrated. The piano would need some work, but I like the whole buildup and the epicness that it brings. Keep it up!
The final frontier?
While I was reading the description, I had imagined something darker and moody. And you now surprise me with this voyage through space that is colorful, hopeful and beautiful. Great composition. Very well done!
Thank you for the positive review, Nekoprism! I personally feel that you described the journey quite well. :)
Very nie composition. Love the progression troughout the piece. I'm a sucker for piano so I'm imagining some great piano line to go with it. But really great work. Keep it up!
If you love piano, I hope that you'll check out some more of my submissions here. I use it in nearly everything I do at least a little. Thanks again for a great review!
I really like the ambiance and the very sad feeling it has. I would have loved to feel a little more in the interpretation and some strings or any arrangement would have increased the feelings. All in all, great composition.
nope - wanted to make it piano only :)
thanks for the review!
Good stuff man. Makes me want to make more music... and believe me I will.
Which I had something bad to say but I just love it.
lol you wish you had something bad to say? :( :P
Glad I inspired you :3
Very well done so far
I love it man...
I don't know what you're going to add to it, but so far it's fine for me.
But! If you want me to be fussy, here are my comments:
In the beginning and at 2:15 the panning effect is a bit too quick and lacks subtlety for the mood of the song.
I found the intro part a bit long. I love the idea of slowly bringing the melody around 1:16, but it takes a while to get there...
I love the quieter part around 2:20. I could loop that part forever... soo smooth and comforting... but then... it kicks in and it's wow! From there the song is at it's best moment.
I know this is probably not your official ending, but I'm not sure about were you are heading from there.
Looking forward to see the rest... keep me posted.
Yay fussy :3
I'll look into changing the panning effect so that it pans...slower? Maybe I'll just lessen the amount of panning. We'll see. :]
The intro is long because the whole song will be indeed long. :D
I'll be making more on this today probably.
Thanks for the feedback!!
Can't stop listening to it...
First off, I've been listening to this song on loop while we were screwing around on the IRC and I can'T stop it... it's really good.
Now here's for my review.
I love the smoothness of the whole piece. Especially the part around 1:20. It's strange the feeling I have while listening to it. It's a feeling of epicness yet it's sad AND hopeful too. It's like there's a whole story in this piece.
I'm never too technical in my reviews 'cause like you saw I'm not to prone on technic... But i'd like to say I really like your transition between the first and second part when you fade the percs. And like Chron say, your glitch in the end of the 2nd part is nice, but I'm not sure it has it'S place there... unless you had more through the song.
I wish the end was building up to something too... But the way it is is not bad either. I think that it leaves a feeling of continuation... like the story isn't over.
All in all... I love it. Good job... I'll be sure to check more of your work and review it.
I've been told that my music tends to tell a story. That's pretty wild that you see it too. :P
Again, the glitch thing was experimental, heck it wasn't even a 'glitch', it's just the Fast LP in the Master being automated. :P
I'll probably be making an extended version of this song once I finish the Gerudo Valley remix.
Thanks for the awesome review!
Yeah... From a WIP POV I think it's a very good start.
It's hard for me to make any suggestions though because I don'T really know where you want to go with it... Will it build up into something epic or stay smooth and quiet? Because for now I think it could be both. It's weird because here and there I kind of think of the Rurouni Kenshin OVA soundtrack when I listen to hit. It carries a lot of sadness, but in the end, you could give it hope or maybe make it even sadder.
You really have the kind of instrument mix I love; flutes, piano, strings... be careful though... 'cause I think that now the strings are a little bit overwhelming... but I know it's all in progress.
For percs... maybe some taito drums... because it really has that japanese feeling to it... And to add to it, maybe trade the piano sound for something like a koto and it would be awesome... But that's me... =)
Anyway... hope that helps... come by and see my stuff if you have a sec...
For sure =) I'll check your stuff out here in a bit! Thanks for the review and i feel that this review will help very much. The song is deffenatly still a WIP =). Jesse did the main strings and i just added most other stuff to it but we're working to change it up a bit and take the strings out a bit more rather then the whole song revolving around them. Thanks for the review.
Ok... here's my thought...
You want suggestions I'll make some... Hope you're ready.
I love the idea you have there BUT!
I like the rythmic synth you have there. I like the chords. I like the wave sample. My bug is with the choir/voice pad. I've been looping the song over and over and it kind kills the calm mood for me. It would be better with either strings (low key) or if you want to stick with voice I'd go with more of a humming sound then actual choirs...
You want to ass something? I'm a sucker for pianos so I'd say piano, but if you want other suggestions and stick with a more ambient sound, I would go with other pads and maybe some twinkling sounds like maybe a toybox or highkey reverbish piano, vibraphone... something celestial...
But I would personally go with a melody... something simple... maybe something melancholic and even a bit sad... Something that carries a feeling of missing someone... someone dead maybe... somebody that will never be back... ever...
Ok so that's enough for me... :) Hope it helped!
nope - the choir stays lol - sorry - spent too much time on that damn thing XD
and we got a twinkling noise in it so far..
I was thinking more of a dirge.. myself.. stuill - your suggestions are noted :)
Ok... I didn't read all 120 reviews so I might be repeating some things that have already been said.
Let's start with me bitchin about stuff I'm picky about. One thing is bugging me in that song. I feel it's missing something in the low ends. It's like everything is in the mids or highs. I wish it had a deep low pad filling the sound of the major parts. Around 1min there's a hint of a low pad, but it's not present enough for my taste. It would give me shivers if it could have those little details in the sound... even the soloish piano parts would gain from it. It's like if the EQs were all in the highs...
Ok enough of this... it was my little rant.
Besides that, it's a great piece and since F-777 is also a great artist it makes it a amazing collab. It's filled with hope and happiness. It feels like the end of a long period of dark times and now a new beginning will bring joy to the world. It comforts your fears and has a soothing touch that I just love.
What can I say, it's worth my hard drive space... =)
ya since the song was so wide the low end was threatening to swallow up the entire song.. but I also like highs - so its also a matter of taste there :P
but ya I'll take what you said into consideration ;)
