Like the arrangement and whole feel with the backstory.
instruments after a point sound monotonous.
Working on the dynamics on the brass/instrument and bass will make it sound like a moving progression.
Anyways awesome work.
Thanks for the great feedback!
To be honest, I consider it a miracle I even managed to make it work in such a short time, especially considering my relative lack of experience in darker themes. The fact that I didn't spend more time fine tuning it was a result of several factors:
- I didn't want to spend more time on this project if it turned out to be unusable, as it was making me uncomfortable. I tend to listen to the piece repeatedly as I make it, to make sure everything fits as I like it to. You can imagine the mental and emotional effect of this ;P
- I've always struggled with dynamics - I tend to focus more on the melodies and harmonies which often leaves something to be desired in other 'departments'.
- I wrote this piece while considering possibly extending it later. I've noticed that when I apply a high degree of polish too early in the making of a piece, it sets the bar so high that I get discouraged and fearful of not living up to that standard when/if I continue. If I were to estimate, I complete maybe 10% of ideas I start with, and a lot of that stems from this very problem. The whole challenge project was my idea of testing whether I can force myself to pull through when failure is not an option and timely completion is important. Spoiler alert! I can :D
Anyway, thanks again! I always enjoy receiving constructive criticism as it often allows me to get a fresh view from someone else's perspective and hone my skills where they may be lacking!
Amazing work on the dynamics and feel.
Hope you finish rest of the parts soon.
Thank you! I hope so too, but this 3 part series will be based on how my relationship progresses with someone... so it may be later rather sooner, as relationships that are worth growing, usually do so at a slower pace :)
Again, really appreciate your comment; thank you! Have a wonderful rest of the year and hope your new years will be filled with content :D
Good music mate!
