The Guardians remastered The Guardians remastered

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Great! The emotions are great in every one of your songs, but i can't help noticing that the transitions between ideas in the song happen too quickly. I was introduced to a new idea every 10 seconds, and it didn't really give me anything to hold on to when the song was done, if you know what i mean. I guess what i'm saying is that in this kind of music, a reoccurring main theme is important. Each theme in this song could be split up into different songs, each with a theme. I know this was written a while back and is just being remastered, but it's just something I noticed. Also, the pauses in between chord changes are sometimes really effective, and sometimes they interrupt the feel of the piece.

Sorry for the criticism, it's a great song :)

Remember that it's meant to be a film score, and does not follow conventional "classical" music structure.


The Adventurer's New Home The Adventurer's New Home

Rated 4 / 5 stars

Like i said in my other review, there are some great ideas in this, and the wintry theme was great. I also loved the piano both at the beginning and especially at the end. I can tell you spent time on this. One thing i noticed was that many notes have accented velocities and it is a bit harsh to listen to. A dynamic range is great, but not so much that i turn up the beautiful soft parts only to be brass-blasted by the loud parts :D It would make your songs nicer and more professional-sounding.

Cheers!



Strange New Worlds (2013) Strange New Worlds (2013)

Rated 4 / 5 stars

Very dramatic and adventurous! The one thing i noticed is that it's a bit hard to listen to on it's own, because of the slight randomness of the melodies that build the song, and the short stabs; in other words, I couldn't imagine an actual orchestra preforming this during some of the parts. However, there are some great ideas in there, and the title is Strange New Worlds, which is exactly what i envisioned when I heard this. Something that you did, that not many people do when they write orchestral pieces like this, is that you kept a consistent melody throughout the whole song. It glued the piece together, and made it seem less random.

Good job! (i'm off to check out your other songs!)
