  1. I don't particularly compose in Greek modes, but moving into something that's not the typical major and minor scales does interest me. This may or may not be the one time I use Locrian mode because it's giving me a lot of trouble, but I'm committed to figuring something out. I'll have to take your word on the chromaticism if that can help out. I've never heard of dissonant thrash metal guitar riff mode or anything like that. I'm still trying to mess around with a melody for the beginning sections. Anyway, thanks for the advice and feedback.
  2. Personally it does feel right to me. I went back and changed it a couple days ago to have it end an Fadd4, so I was having concerns about it. I haven't finished the track, so no loop yet. I was going to continue, but I stopped just to ask this question because I didn't want to have to go back and change things until then. Personally I think in terms of quality, the choir could sound more realistic, but I just have something that sounds too synthetic. Not that I have an issue with it. I haven't come up with a melody quite yet. It's in Locrian mode, so I'm still trying to figure out how I'm going to make that work. And yes, Uffe is a real name. It's Danish for wolf.
  3. I asked myself that. Even though I thought what I have is fine, it was just something that was bothering me. I asked on Twitter, even tagging the word musicians, but I got no responses. I figured I'd try the one place I know where musicians are at. Thank you for your response. And yes, the fade-in is for WIP purposes. I should've titled it with WIP at the end like I normally do, but I forgot to. I plan on making a beginning section for a scene just before this track starts.
  4. Thanks for the response. It sounds good to me, too. I'm just wondering if it's acceptable. I was recently hearing about sentence form, ABA form, and then cadence, half cadence, and perfect cadence. I can add a build up just before the next part.
  5. I'm currently trying to work on a soundtrack, and at first I thought things were going well, but now I'm concerned. None of this has to do with production quality or anything like that. Right now I'm just worried about what's considered a cadence and if I'm going to have to somehow change things, which I'd honestly prefer not to have to. The track below is a boss theme in 5/4 time that doesn't have a melody yet, and I began to realize that none of the sections land on a cadence. It just keeps going, but there will eventually be an ending to the track that will just repeat. There's a choir section that goes from 0:24 - 0:39. The final part of the choir section isn't resolved, either. Is that a half cadence when it reaches 0:39? Is that acceptable so long the track eventually resolves? It just lands into another section at 0:40, and it sounds cool, but I don't know if this is acceptable. I'm trying to create some kind of tension here, so it's an ongoing theme. Like I said, there will be an ending to it, which will then just repeat the track. https://soundcloud.com/uffevonlauterbach/track
  6. Thank you. I used to know how to count the BPM, but I forgot how to. I'll try that, but I'm still wondering what the time signature is. The beeping in the background is such an odd thing because it's not in any other Metroid Item/Save Room, but I want to add it.
  7. I agree about the hi-hat part, but I ended up being more focused on the whole track itself afterwards.
  8. I don't know if I've got the wrong BPM, what the time signature is, or if it's just a composition with randomly placed notes. I'd like to make a remix of it, but I'm having trouble with the time signature. Could anybody help me out here? Thanks. Also, if this isn't the correct place to put this, I'm sorry.
  9. Nice to see the trance genre hasn't completely died. The beginning of 1:47 actually made me tear up. Overall, this remix is pretty emotional sounding, and honestly, it's hard for just any EDM track to just move me the way this one did. The melody and bass compliment each other very well. You did really good here, sir.
  10. I like the style. At first I wasn't sure, because it sounded a bit too fast with the tempo. Then I remembered that bLiNd did a remix that was probably had a faster BPM. I like the opening ambiance in the beginning. It reminds me of when you first begin your EarthBound adventure. The direction they took with the rhythm is interesting, and Snowman no longer sounds snowy here. I don't think there is a more fitting genre for EarthBound than a rock genre that is also relaxing. I always look forward to hearing EarthBound remixes.
  11. Psh. You can never have enough Zelda 2 Temple covers or remixes. It's probably one of the best themes in that game. Of course I'm probably being bias here. Blame Super Smash Bros. Melee. I like the variation section and that cool bit of arpeggios. 2:39 and there on is pretty badass.
  12. A bit upbeat from the original source. It still retained its mellow feel, though. The only thing missing here is a cold glass of tea and a nice breeze.
  13. I love the rick bass sound, and the piano sounds gorgeous. When the Ocean Palace part came in, I was like, "Here we go!" xD I like how all of these blended so well. This sounds beautiful.
  14. The first minute reminds me of an old track by BT. Most of it reminds me of something out of a Miyazaki film, and some of it reminds me of Chrono Trigger. Very nice soundscape, very relaxing, and subtly sad. Good job.
  15. I like this more mellow sound. I'm not really a fan of remixes of the Ocarina of Time Lost Woods, but I actually like this.
  16. It's always nice to hear a Super Smash Bros. remix. I love Final Destination remixes, especially like the section at 2:27. I get chills every time. :D
  17. Simón Belmondo is sounds classy. Very cool remix, and the style definitely works here.
  18. I'm late here, but I'm glad your remix was considered. Very nice sound.
  19. Finally! I remember when I first heard this. This remix does justice to the game it came from. That being said, I really love the retro sound. Nice job.
  20. I like the altered squelches, where they used to be the same sounding, and I also love the main melody being arpeggiated. The breakdown was pretty nice. I love how it stopped playing with the drums and just built up back into the 4 on the floor beat. Your remix evolved nicely.
  21. I wish more people with a better ear would comment on this. To me, the quality of the track sounds good, but I'm no professional when it comes to that. As for the Majora's Mask section, I'm not too familiar with it for some reason. But 3:09 doesn't seem to sound intrusive to me.
  22. At first, I thought you could live in Tarrey Town. I don't know if we'll ever see Link and Zelda marry each other.
  23. I'm reminiscing over here. Who is cutting onions again? Your remix is very beautiful. I also love the background sound you added. Makes me think of being in Tarrey Town.
