Title: New tune: Need a name though...
Post by: dgt83 on April 01, 2006, 02:58:37 am
As of posting this topic, the file is currently in its "processing" stage on MySpace, so wont appear straight away, but I am posting the topic now coz i am at work all day 2moro and may not get near a pc sooo....

The tune is uploaded as "untitled as yet" and should appear at the top of the player (and will play automatically). It needs a name but I cant think of anything at the mo, so if anyone has got any ideas, by all means throw em at me...  :D

Usual applies, please comment/critisise (either here or on MySpace- it looks bare  :o)
Thanx.

Sounds like one of those catchy tunes you'd hear whilst parading through a futuristic FPS. (:

Ugh, i was just about to go to bed but the songs up now and i simply HAVE to listen to it... again and again :P

Here are my thoughts..

Distant Battlegrounds

Escape

Honor

Further Away

Sacrifice/Sacrificial something

Wayward Soul/something

something Revenge


... yeah i'm spent, thoses are just words that poped in my head while listening... i'm in a dark mood so dont take it that your song is sooo dark... anyway, i really enjoy it, i'll just have to have a download when your finished ;D

thanx, will consider then names, maybe 'further away'...  :D
Speaking of changing it, when the beat changes and the next piano bit come in, i'm thinking of changing instruments coz for that bit i dont think the piano does it justice. But then for the last stretch the piano could come back in then end... what do ya think??

Oh advice on music, yikes you sure you wanna ask me...?

Ok, i think the whole song is a bit subdued, but in a really good way. Its like its trying to bust out of its self, slowly growing with only the instruments it has until it cant go any further and collapses, then comes the outro. The song seems just short of being too repetitive and i think to add another instrument would take a lot of adjusting to the over all tone of the latter bit of the song. I'm no export and probably not the best imagination plus its 5 am here but i always know what i like when i hear it.

Another great tune !
But I feel more of an "awakening" or something like that. Like some... amnesic people wakes up and discover a new life/someone wakes up and discover a world which is not where he/she fall alseep... no ?

(OK, I'm such a noob in talking about music...)

yeah Obsi, that was one of my 1st thoughts too but he's already got a song called "Awaken". it might fit this song a bit better but its still a good name for the other song. You see dg, i told you it was a shame Awaken got bumpped off the playlist ;)

Oh OK. Sorry I didn't know @@ *feels ashamed now* Anyway the "Further Away" title seems good to me.
(Gnaaaah I'd like to listen again but it doesn't want to work anymore on my bloody comp ;_; )

Titled track as 'Further Away' which was one of Hackneyed's suggested titles... Cheerz m8.
I have also uploaded the track again as i have played around with the EQ and added some subtle differences (the track is more or less the same tho)
Also, unrelated, i have changed the look of the site a little, its got a ghastly face on it so beware  :o
