Absolutely gorgeous. Flawlessly played. Accurate. Expressive. Perfect.
I can't articulate just how much I loved this.
By the way, this is the world map theme to Final Fantasy IX, entitled, "Crossing those Hills".
Thank you for your nice comment! Glad you like it.. Im composing more piano music now in finalfantasy style.. i really love those themes. Didn't know it was entitled Crossing those Hills!
So thank you very much for your message!
I like the use of 5th harmonies used - what I expect from Chinese songs. Short and sweet, and dancey! Thanks for the review!
Yeah, I do really like your synth lead; very mean. I thought it sounded a bit empty; maybe add some background to help keep attention. Overall, I liked this. Very rhythmic and enjoyable.
Sounds a little distant, but that actually works for a menu theme. Well done on the drum line; fills are sweet. Not a huge fan of that particular guitar sound, but the chord progression is cool. I like. =)
Haven't heard the others, but I really liked this. It's very rhythmic and catchy! Mixed well, and good instrument choices. XD
Interesting sliding voices. I like that you put this in swing. Very cool!
Thank you !
I really love the imagery I'm getting from this. I see a wide expanse of grass blowing with a heavy wind, and then when the drums and bass kick in, I envision someone sprinting across it. 5 and a half minutes might be a bit long without additional instrumentation or different sections to separate it to keep interest. Overall, well done. Highly effective instrument choices. Enjoyed it.
Almost sounds James Bond-ish. I love your drums/rhythm, and agree that it would benefit from better synths/samples. I picture some sort of get-away scene here, or maybe some sort of "investigation montage". Fairly good musicianship; me likes!
Ooh, thank you :D Your input is appreciated.
Not a bad tune. Very atmospheric and relaxing. I can definitely see it being used the way you'd mentioned. I'm having a hard time figuring out your chord progression, though. It's also a little difficult to pick up on the feel of it rhythmically. Are you using 4 or 8 bar phrases? You might want to double-check your phrasing. I do very much like your choices in instruments - pleasing to the ear.
I'm using 8 bar phrases. Rhythm sounds fine to me, but that might just be self-bias.
Thanks for the kind words.
I'll get the criticism out of the way first, since I have highly positive things I want to say.
Con: The chord progression sounds weird to me - specifically, I don't think you're keeping it within a certain key. Double check which chords you're using and figure out if they work together.
Pros: Lyrics = FUCKING AMAZING. Epic end-of-the-universe heat-death horror! Gripping the last scraps of rock left in the universe!? Planets eaten by stars; galaxies eaten by black holes... The misery of immortality... Thanks for the nightmares. Asshole.
Thanks for the review.
I did load up the FL project of this from the dusty corners of my 'Old' folder and have a look at how I sequenced it chord-wise. Yes I did play around with what key it was (it was in 3 different keys) but I wanted to experiment in the original and all I done for this one was just touch up on the sound quality overall.
