Really good composition! The sounds blend really well and it's got this nice atmosphere to it. Great work!
Thanks you i appreciate it, i'm glad you liked it
I like the chiptune 8-bit sounds in the background. I'm not too sure about the voices in the background though... it sounds a little out of place.
Still, I think the actual music was interesting. A slight bit more energetic and sporadic than the music I usually listen to, but I still think you did a good job!
Glad you thought it was interesting!
I really like the piano part in the background of the main track. Keep it up!
I think the part I like most about this is the bassline. The entire track just has this vibe to it, you know? That's what constitutes truly great music - not perfect instrumentation and theory, but something that can capture a feeling or atmosphere.
Mellow and soothing.
Good job. While the melancholic piano part stands pretty well on its own, I did like how the back-up instruments where introduced around 0:17. I think it would be even better if you expanded upon it, maybe reinforce the stringed instruments and bass in the background, make the track climax you know?
Keep up the good work.
I think about expanding this every so often and sit at the piano to improvise on it. I'm just never satisfied with the result though lol. Maybe one day, though. Thanks! :)
Pretty damn good.
I really enjoyed that. Ever played the Penumbra games? This song reminds me heavily of the piano themes used in that series. I liked how you got a mood going while still keeping it fairly simple with just a piano track. Keep it up.
I haven't played them but I definitely know it! Glad to hear it reminds you of a game, that's quite a cool compliment in my books :) I was going to add strings but I couldn't find a suitable VST that wasn't too overpowering, I may revise the track to make it more interesting :)
Thanks for the review!
You know, it's always great to hear fellow musicians who actually know how to play their respective instruments well. And you certainly did. My piano skills are a bit rusty but I think you made good use of dynamics. Also, you managed to keep the rhythm going in a nice pace (lot of people forget that).
Now that I'm reviewing, I might as well ask: what keyboard are you using?
Thanks, I'm using the Yamaha YPG-535 keyboard
I kind of liked that, actually.
Cool passage. Maybe you could try expanding it into an actual song? Would be great to hear something playing along with it, or some other kind of melodic change to mix things up a bit.
It's when you do random things like speeding up or adding weird effects to your songs that all sorts of magic happens, right? ;)
Haha thank you. Yeah i didn't mean it to be a song i just sped up the track and it sounded great haha.
Ever played the game Deus Ex? The part around the 2 minute mark could have been a track from one of the night clubs in that game. Has some kind of cyberpunk vibe to it.
Try to make the intro a little shorter, or at least spice it up a bit and it'll be better. Still, good job!
tnx for the review:)
Could use improvement, but still pretty good.
To be honest, I didn't really like the drums much. Maybe they were too loud or something, but I just thought they detracted from the calm sound that the original songs try to convey. I also think it got a tad bit too noisy around the 2 minute mark with the synth/guitar track.
Other than those remarks though, I think you got it down pretty nicely. I'm a big fan of Silent Hill 2 as well, so kudos for taking two classic video game pieces and doing something creative with them.
yea i get what ur saying about the drums; i guess i was trying to keep the peaceful tone of the song while making it more upbeat.
to each his own, i say; but thanks for the honest feedback :D
The next time I make a remix with primarily pianos in the melody, i'll try to lower the drums to make it more relaxing.
