  1. Thank you for watching the video and writing up such thoughtful and in depth feedback! That's a good point about the shrine theme. I do agree a few variants would have better served the overall experience. I probably should have mentioned something about the shrines (and Divine Beasts for that matter) in my video. As for your second point, I totally agree, and that's one thing I was somewhat struggling with while writing the script. I was trying to strike a balance between arguing that the sparse and impressionistic music was good on its own merits, but also arguing that quiet atonal
  2. Hi all! Last year I made a post here about my video essay regarding Super Mario Odyssey's soundtrack. Well, recently I made another video essay - this one is about why I think The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild's soundtrack is effective. BOTW's music seems to be a bit divisive within the Zelda community: some criticize the game for being to quiet or having too few good/memorable songs. I'd appreciate if you'd check it out, let me know if you like the video! I'm looking for feedback and constructive criticism, what did you like about the video essay and what could be improve
  3. That's an excellent point. I tried to touch on that element a little bit with the Cap Kingdom being more of a general spooky song rather than a specific reference to Victorian London, the Cascade Kingdom having a sprawling orchestral overture rather than an accurate reflection of prehistoric music, and the Lake Kingdom being a relaxing water level theme following in the footsteps of Dire Dire Docks. But I agree that I didn't explore those ideas thoroughly enough... which resulted in those three segments being particularly short. I'm glad you brought up the Jurassic Park connection, which
  4. Hey all, Hopefully this is the right place for this sort of topic. I recently uploaded my first video essay on the subject of video game music: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kO78Jchtd6I Its the first video in a two-part analysis of the cultural background, history, and music theory behind many of Mario Odyssey's songs! I feel that Odyssey did some very interesting things in terms of style and genre, and this video is meant to be a thorough exploration of just that. I'd be interested in hearing some of your feedback, critique, constructive criticism, etc. - as well as your own
  5. I'm so pleased to see that the reception to my song has been positive! Despite the fact that my competitor seems to be the victor (well deserved, I'd say), I'm proud of my arrangement. Interesting to see the varied reception to my instrument samples. Feedback was a little all over the place on whether it was realistic or not - which isn't a bad thing, I really appreciate the range of opinions. I was indeed going for a live band sound, so I'm glad to hear my efforts at humanization worked in my favour. (But my sax VST is probably the worst offender for fake-sounding instruments...) I'
  6. Going to give my thoughts on some of these arrangements! First, my opponent's song, which I was very excited to listen to: "Crash of the Tornado" by Ridiculously Garrett -LOVE that funky bass, and the percussion is really good too! -The piano and keyboard add a really nice flavour, I'm especially loving the chord progression on the grand piano -I really enjoy the disco vibe when the Tornado Man part first kicks in! -Some nice reharmonization going on around the middle section -Staccato strings are always a fun addition to funk/disco I really enjoyed this one, had me bo
  7. In regards to the file name, would it be an issue of my "artist name" is slightly different from my username in this forum? I like to go by "pixeltea" for all of my music now.

  9. I've been working on video game covers and arrangements for the past couple years. I mainly focus on orchestrations, but I like to experiment with all sorts of styles. After about a year of working on and off, I've finally finished my first major project: an album of arrangements for the game Kirby & the Amazing Mirror! While it is by no means perfect, I'm proud of it. That said, I would love some constructive criticism and feedback to help me for future projects. Things worth noting: -I use FL Studio and Kontakt 5, and the main audio library I use is the Kontakt Factory Librar
