It's a start...
Regarding the fact that it is your first song, it is ok. Not good, but not too bad either.
A few important points:
- Too repetitive. It seems to be the same 10-second-part over and over again, just to reach the 3 minutes. If there is nothing new, then cut it. Make a 10sec-loop out of it.
- Layers are out of sync. The drums don't work with the strings, the strings hardly fit the piano. There's no beat to the whole thing, it's just a mixture of different beats. Which don't harmonize.
- As a beginner, keep it simple. Make an interesting melody and apply it to one instrument. If that sounds the way it should, you may add some more instruments, which don't have a stand-alone melody but compliment the main theme. Don't try to start with the whole polyphonal-orchestrated-thingy.
So... I hope some of those notes are able to help you. (Hm, weird, giving tips without having submitted anything myself... ) Still, I guess they might be of use.
And don't give up :)
Thanks for the help. Yeah even I dont much like it. :)
Very tame blizzard...
I can hear the frost :D
But it does not equal a deadly blizzard, with sharp needles of ice piercing my skin. It sounds more like an icy cavern where the light is reflected by the mirror-like walls, emitting emotions of solitude and calmness.
It would fit into a game, but then you should change the drums. Not taking them out, but... making them more background-ish.
If you want to keep the concept of a blizzard, it clearly should be more aggressive.
3/5 and 7/10 for you
Good, with a lot of potential
Only a rating of 2.00 ? I think it is better than that...
What's good: Very nice motif, wonderful progression through many harmonizing instruments, slightly "epic" touch to it
What needs work: The song is pretty repetitive. Around 0:40 I thought that the main part should kick in, but there only were the same ascending notes over and over.
So what I want to say: You have a very good basis to work on, the theme has great potential. But it doesn't sound "complete". It lacks a real melody and proceeds from the intro straight to the outro.
Keep up the good work, 4/5 and 7/10 for you.
lol thanks! i like these reviews and i agree with all this!
i am gonna work on it some more when i get my keyboard!!
Wow, this really reminds me of Chronotrigger. This epic sound that crosses the borders of time. Relaxing and yet full of energy.
10/10 and 5/5. Never stop making music.
It's a fine piece of work. Seemed not very impressive at first, but then everything turned out really good. Especially from 0:45 on, it reminded me somehow of a bgm from Flyff, afterwards it returns to its own melody.
Well done, 5/5 9/10
Wow, Flyff. Haven't played that game in a long time. But hey, they did have great music, and I'm glad I'm getting compared to that.
Thanks for the review!
This motivated me to return to my abandoned RPG project.
The fast pace and the usage of the choir synths make this theme energetic and epic at the same time, befitting a boss fight.
Keep up the good work, and please create more of this stuff.
Cool! These are such cool comments lol, it's awesome when ppl find inspiration out of someone's work <3
I'll try my best, and I will! :D
