I can totally imagine this being used in a game. Reminds me of Legend of Zelda, when the fairies appear. I love the harp usage! :)
Thanks for the review man. I'm lovin the harp too :D
Isn't this basically "Requiem for a Dream"?
Just with different instruments?
The quality of your instruments aren't that great. If you want to do a cover on it, you should probably say it's a cover since it does sound like a exact copy. Also, I would suggest you actually make it different than the original since currently this is remarkably similar to the original.
Yes the beginning I tried to cover it but the notes and instruments were done by ear and so it was hard to produce similar instrument sounds. Thanks for your comments though on making it different. I'll take into consideration.
Love songs like this :).
I'd love to see the lyrics though :).
I'm glad you enjoyed it.
As an expression of my gratitude, I'll even go so far as including the lyrics.
So upbeat! :)
Reminds me of streamline by Newton when I first heard it. Love the melody, especially from the beginning to 00:17. The ending is extremely abrupt though. Would like to see this as a longer piece, and maybe under a different name? :). Just note that it's a collab in the description.
I'm very glad you enjoyed it.
I very well may finish it at some point.
I'm glad you liked it. I came up with the original melody, and my friend worked on the instrumental.
We'll see what happens! I'll talk to the dude and we'll figure something out!
Thank you (:!
I would suggest changing the instrument at around 00:25. While it feels in place, the quality/sound (?) is kind of weird here.
I love the beginning, it gives off a great water feel, especially with the drums and the airy sound.
I think you lose the underwater feel when you start going prominently drums. Especially at 1:31ish, here, it just feels like it's a mostly percussion piece, rather than the percussion being a background to simulate the water feel.
More tea and crumpets sir?
Yea, definitely feels like something you would listen to at a fancy tea party/ dinner party, that kind of thing. Loved your string usage. The end part should be longer. I wanted to hear more of the horn.
In general, it should all be longer! I want more! :D
Thanks for the review and advice! I do plan on extending it to a full piece at some point, and I'll definitely post it on here when it is finished.
Love the tropical feel! It's laidback and not really rushed. The drums give me the imagery of drums that tropical people (right term?) play. Also, I think of coconuts for some reason when I hear the drums xD
My only real suggestion would be to vary it a bit. It sounds more like a loop than an actual song. Feels like the same loop used over and over again. I could be wrong though since I know some parts are slightly different. But mostly it feels the same.
awesome man thanks!!...yeah it was intended to sound kinda tropical and relaxing. it's not a loop...I'll try to go back and do some more work to it!
Nature Program anyone?
A good portion of this feels like something from a nature/life program. :)
1:42 drums here are great! The increasing tempo is just awesome. It's making me type faster as I listen :D. Typing to the rhythm.
2:14 this feels like a burst of life. Simply loving this portion.
Not too crazy about the intro. Feels kinda depressing here.
The heavy drums at the beginning make it seem kind of like a war theme to me.
2:34 I think the drums conflict with the main melody's tempo here at some parts. I know it's randomly generated and is really good, but I think you should probably do some tweaking here.
Great "cover" on a "classic" tune :D
Loved it! You probably didn't want to make it 8-bit like, but I'm extremely curious as to what it would sound like :).
Till 00:15, I couldn't tell what it was, but once it hit the 15second mark, I was like "oh!"
Good first start!
Sounds like you're well on your way to writing trance. Not a trance artist myself, but here's some constructive criticism:
00:26 - great transition! This next part seems much smoother/refined than the intro
2:21 - dunno how to describe the feeling here. Not exactly dark, nor completely free, but I like it!
00:00-00:26 - this part seems kinda just random things tossed together. Maybe some more order here?
2:20 transition seems out of place, but following portion is great.
3:15ish great distortion used here. great lead into the next part.
I think you should aim for a unifying "theme". a good part of this seems kind of random beats put together. There is sort of a consistent rhythm sometimes, but once you leave it, it kinda gets random. As an experiment, it's great, it utilized different types of music/rhythm, etc. For a song, not too great.
Seems kinda dark for a piece saying "I can fly". Kinda expecting an inspirational piece.
