so happy with this. looking forward to working with you again in the future.
Yes! To the future.
Your scratching and your overall performance really enhanced this.
wow the counterpoint is really prominent here!! Inspirational! I wanna start working on something now! thanks!!!
WOOO. i feel like i've heard this before! deja vu. its awesome. i absolutely love the meter you used here. great work!!!!!!
This evokes a warm feeling out of me, but when reading the backstory in the description I definitely sense a theme of self indulgence and sadness... I can almost hear a person telling another off on there inadequacies (the idea of how everything revolves around them). I really like this, and can't wait to hear the final product!
Thank you so much for the review!
I'm glad you enjoyed the music and got some insight into the song. I find it interesting how you were able to get two different feelings from this song and how the description influenced you.
I hope to have the final product soon. I just need to finish up the lyrics and re-record the parts so they sound better.
Again, Thank you!
This is very cool. In my school, and in most, if not all music schools in the U.S., we are taught music theory using the 12 tone system (as all of western and european music follows) but i always thought it would be cool to study middle eastern music where there are pitches that are never even used in our class of music. I especially like your use of percussion. Something that i really enjoy about middle eastern music, and even ethio-jazz music (guys like Astatke) the music seems to be much more percussive, which to me is extremely enjoyable and unique. you did a great job with that here.
The piece starts to even become cinematic at around 1:50 with your use of strings. where did you manage to get the voice sampling? it really sets the mood of the piece. Thanks for making this, its inspiring!
As you said in the description, nothing in this piece is played exactly the same. I especially like your phrasing. I really enjoyed how the non chord tones resolved perfectly, but not in an expected way, like at 1:54 .Your use of Dynamics are impeccable as the whole piece is just building up to what seams to be the climax, and then there is a sense of 'falling action'.
For me, this piece evoked a feeling of nostalgia, which is a special feeling especially when felt in music. Bravo.
Nostalgia is one of the feelings I am most fond of, but I'm glad you felt anything upon hearing this. I've come to the point I don't feel anything anymore from this. With familiarity, music can be like a drug and eventually you build a tolerance to it. Perhaps that could be the reason why so many one hit wonders on the radio are to be constantly thrown out over a year or two, and that's when performing can become quite useful as to differ from the original.
Call it vanity of vanities.
Thank you for the kind words :)
I like this a lot. Reminds me of David Wohls work http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZY1D-keaRE4 very experimental. Maybe push the melody further. the one used in the beginning. I think it could be more interesting and even more experimental if you pushed the drum breaks and beats beyond that standard motif (the reoccurring beat...) Bravo.
reminds me of samurai champloo, or nujabes type of music. fabulously done. For some reason this makes me real happy. PLEASEE EXPAND ON IT! you should def make it longer, and maybe put in more of a bridge. loved it though. if you havent already, check out Nujabes, the album Soul searching. that is what this reminds me of. great work.
The trumpet's melody in the beginning really reminds me of Miles Davis on My Funny Valentine. Really well done composition. I'm really impressed. I also watched the film on your website, and let me say that this was amazing as a song for a film, as it really captured the essence of the shots. magnificent. thanks for making this :)
Thanks! I'm glad you liked it, and the film as well. It's important to understand sometimes what some things are for since the compositional concepts will be more geared towards complimenting a film or a game.
i like your approach but the horns just didnt work for me here. they almost sound robotic. your bass playing is pretty good though. the horns almost sound like an accordion. nice work here, but i think you can expand on it. cheers :0
