After several months of not doing anything about it, I completed my first musical piece, of which I'm very proud and utterly satified with. Now I'm here to present it to you and hear from you what you think of it. beware though: unlike Nico's music, this piece, titled "The way of the gods", is 10:35 minutes long, and it's not built up of Apple loops (Don't take that the wrong way, Nico. It's just that I can only compare it to your music). The piece is a classical, orchestral piece.

I have put it up on my website for you to listen: http://thralni.ermarian.net/otherstuff/otherstuff.html#anchor373282

When you've listened to it, I would very much appreciate your opinion. I'm sorry that the sound quality isn't that great, but it's the best I could get. I'm currently looking around for software that will get me the best sounds: garritan personal Orchestra, but until I have that, this sound swill have to do. I also apologize for some hickups now and then: these are caused by Finale Allegro trying to make the mp3 file. It's got nothing to do with the actual composition.

And if you want to read the poetry I put there up too, you are more than welcome of course ;)

Excellent job, Thralni! Nalyd is quite impressed. His computer isn't properly equipped to hear it properly, though.

It could use more complex melody lines, more dynamic volume (especially enterances! make the brass melodies memorable!) and could benefit from use of cymbals.

I love ridiculously long instumentals. I can appreciate its simplicity. Have you ever listened to Mortiis? His old stuff is similar, though a bit more medieval.

Sadly, I couldn't put in cymbals because I reached the staff limit, otherwise they would have been included for sure.

No, I did not hear of Mortiis. Where can I get some of his music?

Thanks, I'm glad to hear people like it :)

Having listened to it a few times now, I've decided that it's solid, it's good, but it's not all that memorable, especially for something with such an ambitious title. I don't know what the limitations of your program is, but ten and a half minutes is a long time. In future pieces, mix it up a bit, as much as you can. Experiment more with tempo changes and dynamics. Make entrances and exits more dramatic. Right now it all runs together.

But still, it's good.

Youtube? His stuff is certainly darker than yours, and it's probably those crazy viking horns that make his really memorable. I still think yours is fine in its own way, though.

The title is something I decided on in the very last moment. I had this song I was crazy about and has just finished, but releasing it under the title "Still no idea 1", which I called it temporarily, wasn't going to work. So then I chose this title.

So, actually, the title hasn't really got anything to do with the music...

But I'm glad you like it.

Tullegolar: I'll look at it later, when I have time, but your naming of the horns has certainly made me curious.

I like it. I admire people who are able to compose for entire orchestras. Winds, brass, and percussion are beyond me.
