What vocal program did you use? The use of an organ instead of strings is an interesting choice, too.
I thought it was scored for organ anyways... and there is strings! Gah, I can't remember what I replaced. Ah well. XD
The vocals are the Vocaloid Miku Hatsune. Superb program I would recommend to anyone.
Thanks, man! XD
Well done, Maestro.
Only issue I have with the piece is seemed like it never resolved into a full enough theme, yet it seemed to want to.
Orchestration was flawless as with all the works of thine I've heard so far. Harmonies were also especially nice. No really problems, other than I would've liked a reprise of the main theme, or maybe a more fully symphonic version slipped in somewhere.
It's interesting you would say that ShadowJim. You see this song is made for more ambiant purposes, supposed to be a kind of overworld theme, and in truth it's not a very good overworld theme. I compressed my urge to turn it into a full fledged piece as that would defeat it's purpose.
Thank you for your review and thoughts, i'm glad you enjoyed the piece ^^.
Brilliantly pulled together, I must say. The blending of the intruments must've taken hours in itself. Reminds me a little of the music in Miazaki's films (a good thing). The organ and bells I thought were especially well done.
Accolades and a big 5 to thee.
This was surprisingly one of the songs that didn't take that long actually. Then again I had some crazy streaks of creativity when I was sitting down to this, so perhaps I was working in overdrive.
I have seen Miazaki's film's, I really adore the musical elements and stories to them.
Thank you for the review, i'm glad you enjoyed the piece ^^.
Pretty good song, I like the general feel and the percussion.
The ending felt a little cheap, but it worked.
Didn't really feel that dark to me. Not happy either, but not dark--no points off for that though. ;)
I'd really like to hear this played by a real orchestra. There's too many subtle details that I could just imagine popping out, then.
I also would like to hear...the rest of the piece! Just seems like there should be a final section to me.
Nice work, though keep it up.
There was actually a different and longer ending that was like a whole different part in the original song. However, it just didn't really work for this, and is better suited as a standalone piece, and I'll likely release it that way soon. Thanks for the review.
You know the "repeat" button? Yeah, that one...that's about all I need to say, actually. I love the piece.
Where do you get all the nature noises???
From a various sources, if you want, email me, and I will send you a full list of sites I go sound effects shopping for!
Thanks for the review.
Ends too soon!~~~
Very good, but just needs more! It reminds me of something I would write: very pretty, but ends just when you really start to get into that "world" that the song dwells in.
Very nice--worth a listen for asain music fans.
The melody is very nice, but the 2 second...pause...in the middle is a little out of place, in my opinion (maybe just too long of a pause).
You definately got the Japanese feel down, though! Bonus points for that, since I love Japanese music. ^_^
Barely edging in with a 4/5.
Thanks for reviewing this song.I wonder if someone would review it,one day,lol!
But if you want more asian songs,then listen to this:
