You should listen to David Gillingham's "Heroes, lost and fallen".... That is by far the most wildest piece you will ever hear. It's just his use of rythm and percussion that just makes the piece sound insane...
Just the title makes me cringe :/
Sadness and Sorrow.... hmmmm wonder what the song is about....
It's just was too blatant of a title... for me at least...
Hahaha, I love some blunt honesty. Thank you for that. Titling music is a weakness of mine. :p
Very nice chord progression.
If you plan to expand on this I highly adivse that you start to add a lot more moving lines to it. I mean, you a very nice tonality going for you, but I would start adding some higher voices along the way, not so much as a melody but more as an effect. Then after you establish the overall pace of the piece start to add some excitment by giving a descending base and an ascending soprano. Then as the tension hits it's peak give a very strong fortissimo full blown 1 chord (put a 5 or 7 chord prior to give a stronger resolution). Now that would just be awesome. Then after that just do what you like lol.
You have a lot of potential with this. Now capitalize on it.
Wow, thanks for the review, Vex. I definitely plan on extending this and I'll be taking your suggestions as they sound like they would work really well in the song. I'm glad you liked this one, thanks again for the review.
Well first and only.
How the hell do you catagorize that as "Classical"?
Check out the genres on NG: where would you put it ?
I labelled it Classical because that's the main genre in that song. Miscellaneous would be good too, I guess. : )
I always like chord progressions :)
I'm a brass players so they always make me happy :)
Don't take this the wrong way but it sounds like you havn't had any real training in voice leading. Because there are certain parts that it sounds like it is about to resolve but it just goes in a complete different direction.
For your next one I suggest that you make a moving line so that the chords some what sound as if they are leading to each other. And that you add cadences, which are if you don't know, the ends of musical phrases. the most effective cadence goes from a 5 chord to the 1. however, if you want to make it sound as if there is more to come, you end the cadence on the 5, or you could do a 7 chord which gives just about the same effect.
Now if you have no idea what that means I am sorry... :/
Good little piece though :).
Well I wanted to expirement
Very nice feel.
Very good instrument choices... made it feel very... Breezy lol... As I said in another one of my reviews. If you were to get some knowledge in theory it would really do you very well. Because right you you have very high talent. So if you were to get actual knowledge into your work. It would be just amazing.
Again, keep up the good work.
Lol. Thanks. I know, Im dying for some actual training. The main Way I have learned what I have is by listening to lots of different styles of music. And I have aucutally done some study on my own...not much but some.
Sounds very nice. There are just a few things that bother me, but it's w/ newgrounds really not in any way the song.. it's that it is classified as "Classical" when it is most profoundly contemporary.
On another note.. since you are apparently in band and what not, I highly advise if you havn't, take a class called AP music theory. because it will give you really good techniques to doing certain things as in endning sections and how to make voice leading really top notch.
Keep up the good work.
Well, Considering my school is a shiz hole, They currently dont offer one. Hopefully Our assitant band director is starting one next year..I only hope i can fit it in my schedule...It shall be a fight with my mom to take something else out, but Im going to try. Heck I have two more years after this year to worry about it ! haha. Thanks for the review!! I appreciate it!
