My god the vocals. Wonderful.
If you made it so the harmony interlayed more with the vocals, having the harmony "tease" the melody so to speak, it would do wonders to this song.
The melody, of course, was exceptional, but at times it was covered by the woodwinds. An easy fix, however.
I'm glad you like the piece! The mixing isn't too great, could definitely use some work. And you're the second person to mention woodwinds, lol - I only used strings, piano, trumpet, and glockenspiel in this piece. Thanks for the review!
Good idea, indeed. But I feel that at points in the song it was just a random/abrubt transition from one section to another. The choral sections can be brought out a little more, because the organ/backpipe sounds seemed to be too loud compared to the other songs.
The transition into :30 made me feel like you were starting to lose grip of your melody. At first I didn't realize that it was a transition, due to how clumsy it sounded to me at the time.
However, I do enjoy the creativity in the sound effects. I'll grant you that. :) Perhaps next time you can take a little more time to tell the story? Make it longer and super-emote the passages?
Thanks for taking the time to write this detailed review! You are right - the song has got some abrubt transitions. This song is some kind of experiment. I wanted to check out how the medieval instruments within logic sound and check out some things i have heard in some movies. Doing orchestrated stuff is quite new for me and i still have to learn many, many things. I promise the next orchestra-work will be more in shape and that the transitions will fit better :>
I am not very comfortable with the choir-sound of logic. Maybe i dont understand how to use the program well enough or its just the synth-sound which sounds a little bit unreal. I always asked what people like bosa and some others create their beautiful choir-passages... maybe i just should ask them :D
So thanks for your nice review! Merry christmas and a happy new year!
Awesome, though I thought the flute tooting at the beginning could be a little louder, or at least crescendo more to give an even larger sense of foreboding. This song definitely has an amazing concept. I totally just went "Wow" around 1:05. All upbeat songs require a strong drum beat, and that's exactly what you've achieved here. Keep up the good work!
Thanks! I'll keep that in mind next time I write a song with staccato flutes. And thanks! I think it was just the build leading up to the part at 1:05 which gave you that feeling. Thanks for the review!
