Immortal Desires

Post by DarkestShadow » Sun 6 Jan 2019 15:49



I'm very curious about feedback on this one.
A pretty classical piece with choir and strings with a modern twist, meant to symbolize an inner conflict... perhaps do you choose the "salvation" but restrictions of religion, or the freedom but "sins" of life? (Big atheist here, so no conflict for me. I have different conflicts...)
I surprised myself with writing this piece somehow.

I focused strongly on making it as emotional as I could. I couldn't spend a huge amount of time on it since it's not my main project. 16 hours in total I think.

Thanks for listening!

you should experiment with different string articulations. Sul Tasto for instance, has a much darker tone. Ofcourse actual string ranges would help that too... else it just sounds a bit fatiguing

the end had me like "I wear my sunnnn glasses at night"


I feel like the dynamic range on the strings is a bit off... sometimes it felt more like a volume being slid than a dynamic(timbre) change.

(assuming you're going for a completely random balance - not a traditional orchestral balance)

Thanks for the feedback.
Yea, I'm not really focused on traditional orchestral balance.
I was using Hollywood Strings here, I started the track before I had CSS. I don't like their dynamic range, as you said it sounds a bit like volume control rather than dynamics, but I think I could've done a better job there. Just blaming libraries might be a bit lazy. ;)
