  1. Wonderful piece of music.

    There were quite a bit of times where I just wasn't prepared for what actually happened. In fact, 5 seconds into the song the piano makes a minimalist appearance (a whole 7 spine chilling notes). I was expecting another round of the intro before any other instruments joined in, but got a nice example of what to expect from the rest of the piece: minimalistic, with just a few unexpected twists to keep one interested.

    The beat itself is extremely simple, repeating the same 4 measures for the majority of the piece. Not much else is really needed, as the nay provides all the dynamic/emotional aspects of the song. The occasional accompanying instruments add just enough variety to keep the piece from getting too boring.

    Overall, the pure emotion present within the nay is what drives this piece. I, for one, found the ending to be absolutely brilliant. To me, the entire premise of the song is a very mellowdramatic outlook on life (call it emo, if you will). Everything is depressing, even the various moments that have meaning are still melancholy, all leading up to an abrupt end (suicide, accident, etc.). At least that's how I interpret it.

  2. Russell, you take Music Theory before? Cause it sounds like you know quite a bit about the workings of orchestas (and from some of your remixes, its quite apparent as well).

    Anyone, onto the mix.

    Basically, I loved this whole piece... Except for the Ice theme :/ Too mellow, IMO. I guess its just because of the transition... Just goes from nothing to something overly mellow. As Cox stated, perhaps a bass note or 2 to perhaps leave you with a feeling that you weren't exactly ripped from one section to the other (which is how I felt about it).

    BTW, dont mind me. I have no idea about the workings of music, and I doubt I could remix anything in my whole life, so I applaud everything that ever gets released on this site :) This especially (besides the Ice theme part), which is definitely one of my more-listened-to tracks :)

  3. Wow... What can I say....

    I have personally 'dub'bed this "crack music" (pardon the pun). Anyway, all my friends that have listened to this all seem to agree. This is the type of music you listen to when you are so messed up on some sort of drug, that you no longer know what the hell is going on... That's why we all love it! I love how it builds up to throughout the whole piece, then just throws it all in at once at you, and you just get overwhelmed by the intensity. I especially like how about a 2:00 in, most of the music just starts quickly panning between the left and right sides (mostly just the bass at this point), and does it again with the distortion around 3:20. Seriously, kick ass. KEEP IT UP!

  4. Arranged well, but the bag-pipes are just way too high (giving me a headache here :/)

    Anyway, I didn't like the lead instrument choice, but the arrangement of the piece itself is really good work. Especially liked the ending, how everything just dies, implying something happened when on the mountain (perhaps falling, although there are better ways to do falling). Lets just say something happened at the end, and its no longer meant to be happy. Outlived its purpose :P
