I got strong "King of Pride Rock" vibes from this, but I'm probably wrong.
It sounds great. I really don't have much to say since classical music isn't my strongest point. That said, I prefer your Electronica pieces. Might I suggest using stronger brass instruments to compliment the strings? It sounds just a bit repetitive, but I think you should be more popular with the overall quality of your music. I think I was just spoiled by listening King of Pride Rock to compare the two, so I apologize if my review sounds more negative than I intended.
I Can Hear It
I don't believe that there is an existing word in the dictionary that can properly convey how incredibly awesome this song is.
I absolutely love the melody at the beginning. I would actually have liked the song to emphasize that melody a bit more.
The quality in this track is amazing. You have yourself a new a new fan. Thank you for this music.
thank you very much =)
I will try to stay unique =D
I didn't want to be unpleasant and rate this a zero in the event that I am completely incorrect, but this melody is from a Vipzone Midi Pack. Specifically the Roxx the Club 3 Pack, if I did my research correctly.
In other words, it's not your own melody. I'm not really experienced when it comes to the legality of audio submissions, but shouldn't you have to let listeners know where the melody really comes from if it is not your original work?
Please correct me if I'm wrong, and sorry I bothered you.
Yes, On all my remixes, I do inform listeners that it is a remix. I list the title of the original song as well. This is not a a midi file, or from a midi file. Any similarities between this, and any other melody that could possibly be created in the language of music is completely coincidental. I'm sure you have never used the chord progression of Pachelbel's Canon in any music submission correct? xD
Thanks for reviewing. I hope this clears up any confusion.
Too Few Reviews
I don't think that there are enough reviews in the world that can practically convey how great this song is. I was a huge fan of the original. My friends even sang it for Karaoke in class.
One thing I love about this is that incredible voice. It makes the song even more pleasant to listen to. Very emotional.
Oh thank you so much!
Better Than Ever
So happy to hear that you're getting into music again.
It is clear that this is an early version, but the mere fact that I already love it speaks volumes.
Really cool chord progressions, by the way. Can't wait until it's finished.
You've Done It Once Again
Once again, you've managed to speak to me through your music. I've become so accustomed to being awed by your music that I could not imagine how else you could impress me.
Fortunately, you've proven me wrong. Again. You always do. Again and again. Every time I see a new submission from you, I eagerly listen. I think to myself, "Wow, I wonder what ideas he has this time."
You've got a talent so many people would love to have. The way you manipulate these notes, the way your hands must glide over those keys. I can tickle the ivories, sure, but my keys lack that same laugh yours have. Like I've always said, I can't play the piano. I've taught myself everything I know, and I still can't play particularly well.
It's amazing. How something you write off as a "simple idea" could sound so magical to all of us.
Once I'm finished with a current project, I'll give this piece a try at another taste of glory. To be technical, I'm decent at playing a melody by ear, but that harmony with the left hand is something I have always failed at. I have one goal with this piece. It is to provide my own interpretation of this piece without ruining it. You may have heard my music. My tracks aren't particularly good nor pleasing to listen to.
However, it's the music of numerous Newgrounds Artists that drives me. I want terribly to create music, to inspire people, just as you do. I know I probably won't get there tomorrow, or even several years. Even so, I'll do what I can. If I don't give it a try, then I will have already failed.
I hope that I can help you, Ryan. I hope that someone here will be able to help you. Your song is hauntingly beautiful. I sincerely wish that our interpretations will give you the same serenity.
Divine, Nate. Simply divine.
It felt like I knew exactly what you were saying just by listening to this piece. You can get your message across as easily with notes as you can with words.
It's really something, Nate. It's incredible how you can touch the hearts of so many without even knowing what their names are. And through music, no less.
It's this kind of music that gives us that tiny sliver of inspiration we need to make something amazing.
"It's incredible how you can touch the hearts of so many without even knowing what their names are."
And it's incredible how people whom I don't know the names of can touch my own heart. Including yourself. Thank you so much for reviewing.
It's nice, but there are a few problems with this song.
First off, I really like the melody. It's actually pretty cool. Unfortunately, that synth in the beginning completely drowns it out so that it is difficult to hear the melody. I would suggest automating the volume on that synth in order to bring out the melody more because the melody is far too good to be used for the background.
Next, I noticed that you like to use the shaker and ride/hat (if that is what it is) in conjunction with each other. While I appreciate the variety, I would change up that rhythm a bit. The ride/hat seems to interrupt the shaker. That makes the whole song appear to stutter. At least, in my opinion (I am probably not making much sense). =P
You want to make your song a little more dynamic. It sounds virtually the same throughout. Use some automation.
Again, that synth is my only particularly big problem. I feel like it dominates the whole piece.
I can see some improvement, though. Just don't be afraid to experiment and try other things.
You have that way of making me try to make music again.
I just barely have any musical talent and no idea what mastering means (which means I can't find anything wrong with this song), but listening to your music makes me open my music program and try again.
I can't play the piano very well. I mostly self-taught myself everything I know, which isn't much, so I can't play anything nearly as beautiful as this. But it inspires me to keep going. As Martin Luther King Jr. said, "If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward."
Keep making music, Ryan. It's the essence that fuels our creative spirit.
I didn't enjoy some of your latest submissions, but this one really evokes memories.
I'm glad your revisiting your original style. I really enjoyed it. You have that talent that I can only dream of having.
Look, life has its ups and downs. For me, music is somehow a manifestation of everthing we feel into something tangible.
Good luck, Nate. Your music will always have something to say to me. Take your time. We'll listen to your music while we wait.
