The End of the Dream
« on: May 29, 2010, 12:02:40 AM »
Here


Well, it's a new song (that's all I'm really good at, actually, making songs). Not much to say, the title is rather self-explanatory to the song. I guess what I can say is that it feels to me like a dream ending near the end, and the return to reality. Other than that, it's just a song. Though I suppose some people might have different feelings about what image this song might invoke.

The original was a ton longer and better, but Finale crashed before I could save the full project. Then I had to go back and try to remember parts. I'm not entirely satisfied with the current one, so I guess you can expect an update to this song at least once.

Instruments:
Flute Ensemble
Clarinet Ensemble
Harp
Cello Ensemble

Constructive criticism welcome. The harp part is a semi-allusion to Voice of Mourning, the song I wrote for Raxus' grandfather.

Oh, the original title was supposed to be "Four Seasons ~ Spring Dream" but that sounds weird and cheesy to me. Not that any of my other song titles are any less cheesy XD

nice job. it's a bit quieter at the beginning, which i suppose is a good thing, but i turned up really loud for that, so some of the notes got shrill, but that's to be expected of anything really loud. nice job, though.

It's really good! :) Frankly I wish I would be able to do something of the likes, but my skills aren't even close to being this good XD

And it does actually invoke that kind of feeling that you stated in the first post. It inspired me.

Need scripting help? Toss me a PM and I'll see what I can do.
Also able to help with anything RMXP related. Please do not hesitate to ask.

I like the melody, the feeling you described is pretty much how I felt about it. And the intruments are well chosen, too. You've improved again.  :)

@Sark - I never thought I'd get this good, either. But hey, practice makes perfect

@Squall - Thanks :D

Oh, I am making edits to the middle, if it doesn't sound right to anyone.

Well, I made some changes to the original. The middle segment was edited to more fit with the main melody (actually, it's the same, with just some shifted notes and whatnot), all instruments were made a tad quieter, and the slow-down at the end was removed.
