Mystic , wow now that’s a synth ive not used for a long time , think it’s time to blow of the dust and twiddle some knobs .
Just do what ever you feel is right at the time after all music is about feelings and moods . One day im on an ambient trip ,half an hour later im thrashing out some hardcore !
Nice work, good sounds and a good feel to the whole track but it seems to lose it’s way a bit after 4min, the end piece is nice maybe if that came at around 4 mins the piece would be more dynamic…but good stuff anyway…Kevin
Thanks again for all the comments, all input is always welcomed on this end.
Thanks man! When we were finishing that outro it just felt too cheesy to resolve the whole orchestra in that final major chord and end it right there. Instead we decided to add that small piano to carry the melody a little further without letting it resolve. Kinda like an open ending of a movie. Glad you noticed and you liked it!
So thats a sample of Chaplin speaking half way thru ?? The whole things works really well. Maybe even Charlie might have liked it himself !!
i can’t quite remember, but i am sure i read some bad things about him with respect to his private life. The composition is quite ‘dark’ and so i don’t know if this particular aspect influenced you at all ??
Ha! Hopefully he would’ve!
We went a little backwards with this composition, making the music first and finding he right speech sample later. His speech just felt right since it had that melancholic, dark but hopeful feel. It was almost luck that they fitted so well!
After adding the speech we did make a few arrangement changes, but that “dark” feel was already in the music by then. Ironic though, that the music also matches aspects of his life, I like that connection!
