How come no one is praising my music? Or Wero? Or Ela!? WE DEMAND WORSHIP
I have commented on wero's music and your music before.
I suppose I could comment on Ela's music now. It's not bad; there's clearly some talent there. However, it sounds a lot like mainstream pop. It might be a good idea to get influenced by a wider variety of genres to make the music a little bit more interesting.
Thanks for the compliment. I put my pop music on SoundCloud because it's what I most enjoy making and it's where I'm most likely to get noticed by anything close to the mainstream. However, if you want variety...
The Qui Domi soundtrack
is my attempt to mix my composition training with Reason's DIY and electronic nature. This
is sort of the same thing, though that one's a bit more just playing around.Hide
and Rise Up
are some of my more rock-influenced songs (I was really into Oasis at the time). I actually want to remake Hide on my own, with a sound similar to my friend's songs All On My Own
or Can't Lose the Faith
, both of which I produced.Until We Meet Again
is my one jazz song. Here's a video
of an actual jazz singer and combo performing it at an open jam.
(And now you guys have all seen my face. It was bound to happen at some point.)
I guess I'll take this opportunity to comment on everybody else's stuff, though please be aware that I'm TERRIBLE at giving actual feedback unless you specifically ask for super objective critique.
@Awaclus: Metal isn't normally my thing, but I do like the gothic (medieval?) flavor to the chords and some of the layered sounds. I like the way you mix the wildly different genres in your covers.
@sudgy: Better pianist than me by a mile. It looks like you transcribed those pieces yourself, which is extra awesome.
@werothegreat: You use the timbres in your large scale pieces really effectively, although it's tough to hear what the final sound is with just midi - please tell me you've looked for a real orchestra to play these at some point! My one critique is that you sometimes get locked into one key area for a bit too long (I have this problem too in my classical writing), but when you do modulate it sounds refreshing and pretty great. Random question: Have you ever considered adding a top melody/descant to Fairer Than a Burning Lily? It sounds like it would make a fantastic art song.
@Seprix: I know you already.
