I really like this version. Very different and dark.
I love, love, LOVE classical piano. I attempted to compose a nocturne... well, it's still an unfinished pile of papers... :p
Now, this nocturne you've written is very, very nice. There isn't much more I can expound upon because you've executed it so well. Keep up the good work (:
If you want to write a nocturne, try looking at one by Chopin and try analyzing it. A lot of times, nocturnes are VERY simple and repetitive left hand patterns with melodies in the right that emulate the human voice. They tend to be highly ornamented and chromatic but also singable.
For this piece, I listened to Chopin's C# Minor Nocturne (#20) and modeled the left hand accompaniment after that. Then, I came up with the basic chord progression and came up with a sketch of the melody. For form, I basically made it ABA with some elaborations and an ending. This process might not work for you, but analyzing the Chopin gave me a lot of great ideas.
Thanks for the review!
This piece took me back to a time when I was about 12 years old. It reminds me of times when I was really into books. I read a lot of great classics during that time. The Hobbit, Treasure Island, Peter Pan, The Hunchback, etc. Great American classics. I don't know why, but this music immediately sparked a reminiscence, and brought a genuine smile to my face.
Musically, you've written a wonderful little melody that makes a lot of sense. It says what it wants, and doesn't confound it with unnecessary extras.
Wonderful music, friend.
Reading is such a wonderful pleasure. I'm glad this was able to bring back fond memories for you! Thanks for the review.
I started the song all like, "Yes, a singer finally!" Listened in anticipation to the first few seconds. Then she sang. I shivered with chills. Then the slow part started and she sang like a siren... and I wept. Brilliant song, my friend.
Hey Dude! Good to hear from you again ;)
Yeah, the beginning was not the best, she was very excited about that and we had to do the recordings a lot of times. But all in all we're satisfied with the result.
Thanks for listening and weeping to our song! :)
Definitely worth 5/5. Nice vocals man, especially for pre-production demo vox. The style goes really good with the music, and I like the harmony between the two layers. You could make an entire album with this style, and add in some screaming and I would definitely buy it. Good job (:
Definitely like it. Once again, if it had vocals, god I would be throwing money at the screen. Shit, that wouldn't be enough, I would cut myself and toss my blood at the computer. Lol.
What if i tell you that the Lyrics are done and we started already recording the vocals? :)
Thanks for listening dude!
Very nice. Reminds me of KSE (my favorite metalcore band). Wish it had vocals :) Anyway, very awesome song, brother. \m/
Thanks for listening dude.
Didn't ever expect another Review on this song but thanks for that :))
Glad you liked our stuff!
This is absolutely thrilling. I love it. Excellent playing.
Amazing LoL theme for the character. It really brings him to life. Your music is amazing, though short. I'm greatly looking forward to your symphonic suite that you're working on, cuz these ~2 minute pieces are too short! That's the only complaint, but the music is good that it doesn't even bring it down below 5/5 stars.
Something is wrong with my NG, but I listened to this on your soundcloud (as you know). This is one of the best pieces of music I have ever heard. Seriously, this work is a top-of-the-line composition. I cannot wait for you to do an entire, comprehensive score. Definitely staying tuned! (:
