I love it... that's all, sorry

DavidOrr responds:

Thanks Joseph!

When I voted this song I saw 1.10 on rating, there are two possible explanations, 1- someone accidentally pressed "0", or 2- someone is really jealous.

Great composition, filled with beauty, and the choirs, perfect!, quiet and delightfully set!, I like it's taste and the feeling!, I really like your work! :)

And you nailed it, it sounds so much like "Christmas" indeed!

P.S. I don't know if this suggestion is actually helpful, but I must say that the cello transition between 1:45 and 1:48 (D4 ==> C#4) is kind of "cliché", I've done many cliche things too, but well I'm just sayin' I gues that you know what I mean :D

To my personal taste this piece is 4.0 stars and 5/5....
....also, excuse my poor english :3

Keep up the great work man! :)

Thank you very much for taking the time to review my work! Coming from someone of your talent here on Newgrounds that mean a alot.
I've heard horror stories of the zero-bombers here on NG but It's hard to tell if people are just out to vote down every song they hear because they feel like it or if they genuinely found my music to really be that bad. Though it is a relief to see some people do like it.
Actually, I understand exactly what you mean by cliche. That part has been quietly gnawing at back of my mind for awhile. I'm kind of a sucker for those kind of parts in music. :)
I'm glad you mentioned it though. Now that someone else besides myself noticed it, it probably means I should try something different.
Thanks again for your words of encouragement and advice. It is an immense help!

Oh, and don't worry, your English is perfectly fine. :)

Nothing much for me to say, I love this kind of music , great composition man :)

descara responds:

Thanks a bunch! If you like this you'll probably like my submission to the RAC7(represent a country)-competition, check it out if you feel like it, it's my latest submission :)

Great Job!, clever use of octaves!, makes it sound "epic" indeed, But I still think that you must use more string staccatos, I liked it a lot!...

P.S. I use FL Studio, If you do, you'll have to teach me how to make loops ;3

Very nice work man, keep it up!

samulis responds:

Hey there, thanks for the review. I should look into using SS more; I use them more as accents of the melody line.

Regrettably, I use Finale, so I am afraid I can't teach you how to do it in FL.

Thanks again!

Great orchestration!, but It's a bit too loud mostly at the choirs!

Do moar :B

Bosa responds:

Indeed, sir. I shall! And also I will edit the song shortly per your request.

Very Clever work indeed!, I love the use of the woodwinds, it's a very nice piece dude!

But I think the strings are a bit too loud (for my taste)
Keep up the good work man! :)

Nie orchestration dude! :)

I give you 4 stars because it's pretty good for your second orchestration, I suggesti you to use brasss staccatos to give it a more powerful attack!

nothing more for me to say this time!

I agree with Bosa, but you have characteristic style, by using solo violin adn tubular bells, the suceed is hidden in the unique style, I mean, it takes a lot of time to define yourself as a composer, but if you do, you might be a great film score composer! :)

I loved this composition!

I see in your description that your dream is to become a Orchestral/Cinematic composer!
Well, I am too, and I suggest you to work even more harder in your music! remember this man!: Is not only about being original, is about being inimitable!

Great work man respect! :)

samulis responds:

I hope to eventually find a definite style that stands out from that of many others... I presently use many conventions of "adventure" music that I am working on leaving for my own new ideas behind instrumentation and style. :)

Thanks for the advice and great review,

Excellent this piece gave me goosbumps!

Sounds like it's telling you a great story indeed!

This "compilation" of distinct but at the same time "alike" melodies is just so delightful, you used the harp very well and it really reminds me of the ancient Rome, also I loved the way you used the percussion and woodwinds!, oh!, and the ending was so "cinematic" if you want to call it that way!

But maybe you could fix those strings: 2:06... they suddenly stopped! It would be great if you slow them down so they can gently dissapear, anyways this is a great piece, you're very talented!

Definitely one of my favorites! :)

Your pieces are geting better and better!
I hope to see more of your work in the near future!

samulis responds:

I might try retouching the piece up a bit in a week or so... I wanted a more dramatic shift there, but might consider making a better transition.

I am happy you and others like the direction my style is progressing... hopefully NG Opus 100 will be a continuation of the feel I impart now with my work.

I agree with TwiTwi, It really gives you a "Beatles" taste
also this was very professional and it has a rgeat quality!
Congratulations dude! that's the music we need today, because nowadays commercial music just sucks.

You have a good voice maybe, one day, you could sell your music and become famous (who knows?), but for that, you have to be more "Authentic" , jjust give it a try

Excuse my silly meddling but I have a question!
Do you know anyone who can play the guitar, but something more like "metal or hard rock"?, i'm in the search for a guitarist to make collabs in the future! meybe we could collab :)

newhansen responds:

Thx for the useful review! I'm gonna give it a shot to create an 'own' sound in my next work, like u said. I hoped to get rid of the 'beatles taste' with this one :P. I wonder why people still hear the influences..

Well...as for the guitar. You should ask the April MAC winners. The theme was metal, so i guess you can find some talented people over there. The post should still be in the audioforum. Gl ;)
