I dig... ^_^
I really detest short comments...
...But this is awesome...
Thank you :D and hey, comments are comments!
I couldn't agree more with ZipZipper; your voice has got a quality and feel that brings its own weight and is something I can highly appreciate as a fellow singer. I love your pieces, not only for the story, but the mood it presents with it.
The only thing I thought odd was the pauses (i.e. between "to the place you" and "belong"). It didn't sound bad, but it still brought an odd "What just happened to the music?" kind of feeling.
Can't wait to hear what you have next!
Keep up the good work!
Thanks for reviewing numbra :) on the end of the first verse, I composed it to slow down to a point of silence so that I could then bring a more sombre mood for the last 'belong' to coincide with the atmosphere of the sweeping harmonies after the slow. When creating music, I prioritise the atmosphere and each little feeling as it goes throughout the song, almost as if each song or piece I create is like an experience or journey. Sometimes this means deviating from what would be assumed to be technically correct. It's understandable that to someone who is reviewing the technicalities with a critical eye, this may be picked up on. To me, I believe it was necessary when following my instincts in composing this ^0^! Hopefully I've explained my reasoning/point of view clearly~
I really appreciate that! Thank you for the kind review! :)
First off, I really dig the fact that you're using SoundFonts. So many people believe that SoundFonts don't have good quality, but your piece here just goes to prove otherwise, so awesome job!
Don't know how well you know your RPGs, but this sounds exactly like the game Wild Arms, it's got a nice cultural, celtic feeling going for it, and still keeps a sweet rhythm. Love it.
Thanks, nUMBRA! I'm always happy to prove people wrong. ^_~ I have heard plenty of terrible SoundFonts in my hunt for good ones, so there can definitely be quite a disparity from one to the next.
I do indeed know my RPGs fairly well, and Wild ARMs is a series that I am well familiar with. Even though the difference in style from Western to Celtic is so distinct, guitar-like strums can still often sound very similar. You should check out my other songs: Gunslinger and The Gunslinger Returns! They're at least partially inspired by those games and classic Spaghetti Westerns. :D
I definitely like the feel of this piece. It is highly reminiscent of computer RPGs of the later '90s.
Keep up the good work.
I'm glad you liked it! Thanks
Very cinematic indeed! I must say, you really do know how to put mood, setting, and story all in one place, regardless of the fact that this is an audio medium. That's darn good. Can't wait to hear more.
Thank you very much! I feel very strongly about music developing, these days music overwhelmingly tends to be droning and static.
