Hey, I'd like to read the sheet music too! :) For playing and analysis sake :)
I like the piece. I like the emotion that you try to convey. Yet I feel it is a little bit too sentimental for the title ;)
Of course, sir.
Honestly, I'd like to see the sheets for that piece. It is quite nice miniature :)
Thanks ^^ I know it's a late response, but if you still want the sheets pm me and I'll see what I can do
Hah, when I thought about the Lonely Bard I understood that he is quite a figure. Not only he listened to muse, he became one himself.
It leads to the question: is the bard really lonely while he found ones who listened to his story?
I found possible answer: the bard is not alone anymore but the Death allows him only to haunt others with music. Or rather his music, like Orpheus' one, bought the Death to provide music to one who is worthy.
Of course, if the bard is dead and death has power over him, the second possibility appears. The memory can also haunt, but for how long memory is quite clear to recognise melody? Even days can blur some sounds that creates the music. Another 'power' of the Lonely Bard could be writing melodies into hearts, then. Putting them that far, that they exist like artificial thoughts appearing in night time as the inspiration.
Generally, beautiful. As you can see, I tried to interprete that :). If you could say why the Lonely Bard became or was lonely; if you could say whether world refused him like Cassandra (from Greek Mythology) or was there another story...
A very very interesting theory, I love it!
I always called him lonely because he traveled alone, never making friend or enemy, never missed or anticipated. Anyway, it was so easy to tell his story because in a lot of aspects he was and is still very very real.
One night, when I was trying to sleep as most composers aren't supposed to ever do, I SNAPPED awake in a cold sweat with this melody playing in my head. I ran to my studio and composed it as fast as I could. Some weeks, later, the same thing happened and I had to write a redux. Then another.... ....Then another.
This melody followed me around everywhere I went, haunting me and making me write different variations of it until I almost had an entire soundtrack's worth of it. So one day I sent it to my sister, a poet and very good lyricist, and asked her what she thought of this story. She said the melody was nice, and thought nothing of it.
The next night she woke up in a cold sweat just like me, the melody plaguing her. So she wrote these lyrics, and told me I needed to make this or we'd never feel any closure from this stupid reoccurring melody. And so he became. Haunting me evermore, as the song puts it. With this very melody.
Anyway, I'm so glad you enjoyed the piece, and I love that you put that much thought into the story, I love the idea you got from it!
Nice. Soothing. Honestly, I expected more powerful reprise. Although it didn't occure, composition was very nice. Nice enough for 5 and 4 and half.
But still, you could have put more of yourself here, methinks.
I really want to start doing original works of my own, but I seem to lack such imagination/inspiration for it. Maybe someday, though. :x
Simply beautiful, but where are baroque ornaments? Where is harpsichord's sound? It is surely baroque-feeling, but it could be still even better.
Thanks for your comment!
As far as ornamentation and harpsichord goes, this was never really intended as an accurate pastiche, but rather as a hommage.
Nice orchestration, but it lacks of something.
I think it is nice one. However, when I listen to the original one, it lacks of energy. I would also consider adding some drums.
I know what you mean, though this is more of a soft version something you would hear maybe during a cue when a character is speaking over scenes or at the end of an episode. just an alternate feeling not to replace the original in any fashion or form.
I like it. It is worth 5/5 and 10/10, but... I just could not. 10/10 is almost perfect and I don't think it is almost perfect. It is very-very good.
It has calm feeling of the coming back to home, to wife and bunch of children. In addition, /nostalgia on I feel FF and CT here ;-;'. In addition, Canon in D by Pachelbel and composition included in the 5 Centimeters per Second are almost a little similar to your one.
Points for a unique and slightly confusing review. Thanks for listening!
Good, but not for renaissance.
In fact, as a fan of the renaissance music, I cannot say that is good renaissance styled composition . If you should do it, for example more like an sarabande or gigue, I would rate it 10.
However, I cannot rate it lower than 9, because composition is simply good.
PS You have failed at centuries.
Good work, sire!
I've heard many arrangments, sire, but thy one is very good. Thank you, sire, for piece of classical music.
However, not Middle Ages, sire, but Renaissance.
Thank ye, good sir, for your kind response. :)
We can argue period whenever, as the piece's origin was in the taverns of the High Middle Ages yet its methods are in much later music (you wouldn't see so much conflict in a true early chorale).
My first association was 'The Witcher' sountrack. I love yours instruments, could you tell me what exactly did you used?
In fact, glory for ya. You are awesome.
ALL of the instrumentals? hahah Sooooo many of em.
