Very nice job here, but...
it's too repetitive! The beginning - it's marvelous! But then I feel something is missing and I know what is it. It's harmony - the same pattern but in many instrumentations - that's a plus, but still to little changes in harmony. Like other say - it's perfect for a fable game, but for a song you need to add more patterns. Overall GREAT JOB!! :D I wish you good luck in you career.
P.S. For sure I will use it on RPG session with my friends ;)
If you only knew how many patterns we had in this to begin with LOL. Trust me there's a lot more to this the more you listen the more i'm sure you'll hear. Anyway thanks for the review hah.
For me too simple...
7/10 for the idea and harmony - it's original. But this is some kind of ambient music - can fit in a movie scene or game, but for listening - kinda tiring.
Yes my friend, it is meant to be short sweet and simple. Thanks for listening.
Very good job. It fits perfectly to a game. or movie. You did a well job. There's nothing more to say. Keep going :)
P.S.: Why 9? Because for me it's only a background but very well done.
Thx a lot robomanus. I'm working on other tracks... but obviously time is always a problem. Thx again.
It's going and going and going and nothing more...
I'm sorry, but this song is very, very boring. In the beginning everything is all right. I'm waiting for something, but it repeat again. You've repeated this harmony for about 30 times, so every change in the melody doesn't change anything. You need to work on lot of things, like harmony, melody and form. I hope you will take my advices seriously. 3/10 because it's your first piece for piano. Good luck with music!
Alright, thanks for the review
This fits perfectly to the game :) I like your work :D
I'm disappointed, cause I was expecting something really, really big in the last part. But this part was very similar to the others. I think that your problem is building a strain. I have a feeling that this song is in the same volume in every part. Maybe you should try to start from quiet music and voluming it up to the "Rockfall!" where the hole piece could be silenced, giving a listener some hesitance. Then you can build up music again, making a big culmination in the end. But volume isn't only thing that can help you build a strain. More instruments playing high notes are also an option. But you need to go to these notes slowly. Higher and higher and in the last part the highest. I hope that you've understood what I've said. I think that this piece have something really deep inside. You've created something very good, but think about making it more interesting.
The similarity of the last part & the volume in general apparently has a big significance in your rating, although I always consided it satisfactory this way. But since everyone has other opinions, I'm glad you mentioned it.
The examples you have given (the points where the music should be softer, build up, be at its maximum) can already be found this way in the song but I think from your point of view they should stand out more.
Thanks for your advice of using higher notes the closer you come to the final culmination, I will keep that in mind!
Thank you for your detailed review!
I must say, I felt into a trance or something. I was looking at the monitor and my body stopped :) Great job!
P.S. It reminds me a Metal Gear Solid scene.
The beginning is ok. But when these quiet strings enter I have a feeling that they are not in rythm. Then, there are too many repetition of this motive. I think there is something missing. You are repeating the main motive too many times. And the base is always the same. These repeating strings. Try to think about lot of changes, because the piece is more interesting then. Of course, if you want people to remember your melody you need to repeat it. But don't repeat it just like that. Make something new, some new parts with elements of this theme, but different. Make a different orchestration. Use your imagination to create a break between one repetition and another. You can change a key too, for example do some modulation to a higher key. However I'm giving you 7, cause there is a theme and harmony and lot of instruments. But I think you should listen to classical composers and read about instrumentation, because you have lot of things you need to learn. Try to think about what I've said. :)
A little bit too long intro. And your vocal is too quiet. You need to concentrate on improving vocal skills. Don't try to shout to the microphone and try to sing more clean (sory but I must improve my english :D ). That's what I can advise. Anyway, a peace, calm piece :D
Really deep man... Really :D I like it. Good job! 5/5, 10/10
