Rated 5 / 5 stars

This is beautiful

I really love this. I can feel the effort that you put into it. It has such a sad tone to it. Simple and effective. Really makes me miss my old piano and all the days I composed little tunes like this on it. :)

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Pretty

Definitely carries a nice feel of the fall season. Also relaxing most of the way. Now you can play really well, but just a small tip; I've noticed with some of your stuff, it's hard for me to pick out a beat in some places. Usually I will try to play the piece with a metronome, and then edit out mistakes in a piano sequencer later on so that it is more structured and has a more discernible rhythm, but I have done it the other way too in some of my songs, so I know it's pretty hard to keep the rhythm flowing. Anyway, keep it up. :)

I'm very impressed!

Seems I have stumbled upon a rare gem here on NG. You've really got some talent here, dude! The uniqueness and range of your voice make you to be even more so, a rare find. I'll certainly let you know when I make my next toon. All I need is some ideas, and hopefully I can make something epic. :D 5/5 10/10 Fav'd!


Kpheeyat responds:

Really? I do not feel as such. But, thanks! I appreciate all voice acting work coming my way =D Your words are motivating me to further self-improvement. ^^

Ooh!

This is similar to the Rage of the Giants piece. :) Now I'm building a nice sequel story to this one.
Very well composed, just like the other. I'm really loving the choirs in this too. Almost a more mystical sound to it. I really liking this! :D


blackattackbitch responds:

Whew, I almost didn't see this review!

This is the original to the RotG piece. RotG was meant to be a better version of this unfinished song.

I'm glad you liked this too, and I'm glad I came back to this. Apparently, I owe DJ Cryogenic a review from months ago. I think I should drop him 3 now lol


NAC: Rage of the Giants NAC: Rage of the Giants

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Just amazing!

First of all, nice name! Really allows for me to make up a good story to this. :)
I love the strings at the beginning...just the perfect crescendo, and how you've thrown some random little side melodies in to add to the effect, excellent! Then when the brass builds up, just wow! I can feel the tension building, and the rage is about to be unleashed!
At around the minute mark, stuff really gets exciting. I do love how a lot of stuff seems to be going on at once, perhaps like a raging battle between great giants. :D And at 1:35-ish, is probably the real climax of the song....when peril is at its best. :)
All in all, I really loved it. It's really just a perfect piece. I don't have anything bad to say about it. Particularly composition-wise. I wish you the best of luck in the competition!
Cheers,
~S


blackattackbitch responds:

I'm glad you like it, although I actually think I messed up if 1:35 is the climax. My intention was to have 1:54 be the climax. Perhaps I should have put some violin/viola trills there?
Thanks for the review!

I agree

I agree with the two comments below me. Structurally, it is such a wonderful piece. Very well composed. I love the melody, and the style a lot. It really is a cool piece, but yeah, at the beginning, the whistle type instrument and the strings were just a bit too loud. I had to turn the volume down a lot, which would probably mean that I didn't get to hear some of the sub-melodies. I particularly like the last minute of it. I'm thinking that would sound so awesome if a live orchestra were to play it. :)

I feel it!

Such an exciting, provocative piece!! I can feel a sense of danger or imminent doom, but the desire to stay alive overcomes it all. Absolutely breathtaking composition! I'm glad that I clicked on it. One of this competitions best for sure! Good luck dude!

Oooh.

I feel like I'm being closed in a dark abandoned tomb, with only darkness, and terror lurking in the places where I can't see. This is a very bone chilling piece. Keep up the good work!

Hey, thanks for the review!

Yeah, you can tell this wasnt intended to bring about images of sunshine and rainbows lol.
I'm glad you enjoyed it, and I'll be sure to try and come up with something even better next time!

Thanks for the support!


-Legend- -Legend-

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Spectacular!

This song has a wonderful, and strong ethnic feel to it. Kind of pulls you into a desert type setting. I can definitely relate this piece to many movie and video games. :) That's a good example of musical imagery, which you have wonderfully demonstrated. I can just picture a long journey across a vast desert with shifting sands.

The sounds you used worked together well. Again, I bring up the ethnic aspect of it, because that is my favorite quality of it. Those shakers and miscellaneous percussion totally make all of the difference.

Now, I've never been a fan of slow ambient type stuff, so I'll admit that the beginning didn't really pull me in like some songs do, but I think that the climax of the song really made it all worthwhile.

Well, all in all, this piece was very well made. Can't really find anything wrong with it, since music is not my real expertise. I think it's a really nice quality song with a lot of potential. :) So much accomplished in a song, even though, as you say, classical isn't one of your main genres, and that you're deaf in one ear. You still managed to maintain a flawless stereo sound anyway.

Also the whole thing seemed to come together nicely. It was a good idea to start off slow and hide the real prize for last..although, I would have done the opposite, just to change things around. ;)

Anyway, I should probably cut this short now. Great song! And the best luck in this competition! :D Oh yeah, and keep up the good work too.

Cheers,
~S

Wow, thanks for the very detailed review! Also sorry for the late response. I seem to have had the swine flu, and while I'm still not feeling that good, I've got better.

"This song has a wonderful, and strong ethnic feel to it. Kind of pulls you into a desert type setting.

Thanks! Like I already said to megakill, a desert was definitely what I was going for. I've made an Egyptian-like song before called 'The Ancient Curse', and while I didn't work on it nearly as much as I worked on this, I got some inspiration from it. I've got some experience with ethnic percussion too so I put that to good use, as I did with my new VST Ethnoworld 3 which is awesome.

"The sounds you used worked together well. Again, I bring up the ethnic aspect of it, because that is my favorite quality of it. Those shakers and miscellaneous percussion totally make all of the difference."

Great :D. Although for some reason my cousin didn't like the sound of the shakers much.

"Now, I've never been a fan of slow ambient type stuff, so I'll admit that the beginning didn't really pull me in like some songs do, but I think that the climax of the song really made it all worthwhile."

Yeah admittedly the intro was the thing I worked least on when making the song. Usually I make songs with a specific intro in mind, then I evolve the melody from the intro, or in some cases the melody in the intro is the main melody. For this song I had the melody figured out first and I put it into the first pattern of the song, and then I made the intro. I was so excited to get to the main melody at 0:34 that I half-arsed the intro :3.

"Well, all in all, this piece was very well made."

Thanks!

"Can't really find anything wrong with it, since music is not my real expertise."

Ah, is it art? Because your art is very good.

"I think it's a really nice quality song with a lot of potential. :) So much accomplished in a song, even though, as you say, classical isn't one of your main genres, and that you're deaf in one ear. You still managed to maintain a flawless stereo sound anyway."

Glad to hear that (the fact that you said I maintained a good stereo sound I mean, not the stereo sound itself because I can't hear that :P). I did absolutely no panning of my own at all, so that good stereo sound is pure luck I guess.

"Also the whole thing seemed to come together nicely. It was a good idea to start off slow and hide the real prize for last..although, I would have done the opposite, just to change things around. ;)"

Ah, in my case I've got the mentality that all climaxes are at the end, although sometimes I don't end my songs with climaxes, but rather play the climax , then the song goes silent and I end the song softly.

"Anyway, I should probably cut this short now. Great song! And the best luck in this competition! :D Oh yeah, and keep up the good work too."

Thanks again for the really helpful review!

Just, wow!

I can't believe my ears, this is so amazing! Now I need to really brainstorm in order to beat this piece. So original, and just downright epic! Just like all the rest of your amazing classical pieces. I'm definitely in awe now...not that I wasn't before. I mean, what more can I expect from the greatest composer out there? :) Keep it up, and I wish you luck in the competition. This won't be the last of me, hehe. ;)

I am greatly honored that you feel I'm the "greatest composer out there!" Although you have already left me speechless by that statement, what I can say is that, "with a great muse comes great inspiration to create great art!" Without you, I couldn't have arrived at where I am today. :) So, thank YOU!
