My music. Opinion's needed.

Postby WD RPG WD » Mon Jun 15, 2009 11:59 pm

Just wanted to get some opinions on some of my music. I'm warming up to hopefully compose for a video game again.

First one is for a calm forest type setting.

Second is for a blizzard scene in dark woods setting.

Let me know what you think. Thanks.

Well, the first half of the first one doesn't exactly speak calm forest so much, but I could definitely imagine the second half in a forest scene of a video game. :)

The second song is just great. Love it.

Well I hope that my non-professional opinion helps; I love listening to others' music :)

I agree with Aqua here. I'm not an audiophile nor am I a professionaly, however when listening to the first one I immediately had images of being in a small oriental trading down in Mongolia back in the day.

However, I liked them both and both are soothing to me.

Thank's for the outlook. I wrote the first one 4 years ago and recently updated it. I always thought of it as a forest theme but I've listened to it 200 times so I kind of got sick of it.

Aqua, you said you like listening to other peoples music? Do you compose as well?

The music is great and I can see where you were going with the forest idea in the first song. I do like the bird sounds in the flute. (I'm assuming flute.) But I don't think that is enough to make it sound like a forest. About a minute into the song I hear the forest slightly but by then it's too late. When I listen to the song I really hear a port village, or a place by the ocean. The music seems very aquatic to me. <3 it though!

As for the second song it's great!

No, but I would like to someday for recreation. Could you pm me what I need to get started?

I fixed your first post and deleted your second. You just needed to edit your post and uncheck "Disable BBCode" before submitting it to make the quote tags work.

Good stuff George! I don't really have much to add that hasn't been said, as I'm no expert on audio and all. I still remember listening to your old school MIDIs back in the late 90s or so! I'm sure I probably still have them on an old computer somewhere.

Thanks G1. The youtube video I just uploaded is a remix of one of the old songs. Aqua I'll send you a message about how to start writing music. Unfortunetly just to get started costs around 2k. But there is alternatives.

Nice music, very mystique and sort of melancholy but soothing at the same time.

Are they remixes of anything by any chance or songs that you created?

They are 100% original. Thanks for the compliment. You too Monde Luna. Melancholy though? Are you sure that just wasn't your current state at the time? :)

It could have been, I do feel melancholy from time to time.

I often find things that are solemn and calm to be somewhat gloomy if I view them from a certain angle and use my imagination a bit. Just take the serenity of the night, it's calm and peaceful but yet at the same time it can be gloomy when you think of how lonely the night is when everyone around you is sleeping and you're awake alone.

So, it depends on the atmosphere the song is taking place in and how my mind perceives it.
