best arfenhouse movie of all time
I remember when this first came out. It was a classic then and still is. I can't believe that was 2002... Anyone who wants to claim to be an old school Newgroundsian has to know this piece: It is a classic and essential piece of Newgrounds art.
This is a nice composition. Very original and it presents a complex vibe.
-better guitar sample, or preferably real classical guitar would add that rich timbre that always sounds nice
-Percussion could use some subtle delay and/or reverb
-It's a bit repetitive and lacks variation or a more complex/captivating melody
-if you added a final little part you could cut down on the repetition and make it loop better.
-String sample is a bit abrasive and the string part could use greater depth of dynamics
This is a very nice tune. not only that but its quite original and expresses a complex statement which is not as easy to do as the more simple vibes. There is allot going in this piece and you balance it well to make it into a piece that is greater than the sum of its parts.
My only criticism is that the sound FX that come in at 21 seem to clash with other frequencies. I wonder if they could have been mixed better.
Anyways very original and nice. Goodjob
This truly IS very calming to listen to. My only advice is that I think you have some mixing issues. The oboe sounds too quiet, which is especially problematic because the oboe plays your lead melody and that means it should stand out more. It is a beautiful melody and there is no need to hide it.
I agree. Back when I wrote this, I was using free soundfonts. The oboe font in particular had the problem of being terribly quiet, and I didn't know how to bring it out. Thank you for the wonderful comment. :)
