Sapphire Nine - Bamboo Sapphire Nine - Bamboo

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

your transitions are pretty smooth, i like the intro, key change at 1:50 was fun 2:45 climax worked out i feel. i didn't have a clear three part comp. like traditional composers (Nobbuo, Duiska) but i see nothing wrong here. thank you for sharing

Silta responds:

Thanks so much for your review!
To be fair, uplifting trance tends to be a 4-part structure (intro, breakdown, release, outro), at least in the way I craft and organize it in my mind. And also keep in mind that this is only a preview of a larger work.
Besides that, I'm happy that those things sounded good to you! Things could definitely have been better, no doubt, including the structure, but I was just plain stumped on solutions for a couple issues. I figured if I'm going to start releasing tracks again, I've got to start somewhere and not just sit on the fence with a project for 9 months... again.
Here's to improving for next time!


Fantasia in B Minor Fantasia in B Minor

Rated 4 / 5 stars

this sounds amazing. is this adapted from the song written by Walt Disney? regardless, i love it, thank you. now go get yourself so taco bell and have a grate day.

FinnMK responds:

Thanks very much! No it draws no inspiration from Walt Disney's Fantasia. I just woke up and began to play and it sounded like something I had to write down/record or I would forget it and be sad for a hundred years.

Synesthesia Synesthesia

Rated 3 / 5 stars

you did ask for my thoughts so: the intro seems to hold for a bit long, you might be able to trim a few beets form the top, i love the xylophone in the last third, if you toonup the crescendo at 1:25 with something that might be fun but i don't know that much about trance music so..., since you cam in on a natural sound it seems to me you could take a page from Robert Miles and fade out on the same cord. how do you feel about it?

ApprenticeBlacksmith responds:

Thank you for review!
Ye some have said that the intro and middle part needs something more to keep the intrest up and I've been playing around with few ideas. id like to add one perfectly fitting accapela to the start and middle but unfortunually everything must be made by me in the competition. It seems that even VSTis that are made for producers to have basic vocals are not allowed.
Anyway I am trying to fix the piano melody to more intresting and add something more into intro/middle.

Ah Robet Miles the "father" of trance/techno/ambience combination.
Maybe I should listen again few of his classics ;)

P.S everything I make is something that comes as a sudden inspiration and are rarely similar to something already existing unless it's happy coincidence.

this sounds something like Kefca's theme from FF6, i like it. has some real industrial on top. it's not really to my taste as far as a perches goes but it was a fun ride never the less. thank you for sharing

larrynachos responds:

Thanks! I'm actually about to work on a remix of Kefca's theme, along with a bunch of other final fantasy songs.

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

i notices as this was playing you did something that Noboo Amatsu did in most of his song, you have the same starting note as ending, i don't know if you noticed this yourself but that makes it so you can play this on a loop and there is no seem. that is really cool. thank you and keep it up.

Frozenfire56 responds:

Thanks, I made the ending like the beginning because I didn't know how would I finish this, so yes, I noticed that.

i love silent hill, i like the song you have hear, i think that the base sounds distorted but the melody is spot on. i think if you could bleed the base so that it fades out becoming less of a hard note that might be cool, what do you think?
