In short, this is a hasty masterpiece that was perhaps a bit rushed in my opinion. When I heard the opening, it threw my imagination into a world of excitement and unlimited opportunities, and then from then on, it just rushed. I can feel the emotions and wonder and innocence, but it was perhaps too short. But then again, you did explain that you didn't have time as you were rushing it in for an entry into the Newgrounds Audio Deathmatch 2012.
I definitely can't wait to hear the full version of this song!!!
I had two weeks to compose a piece for the contest but didn't have any ideas that I particularly wanted to stick with. The second to last day before the deadline, I went out and bought 24GB of RAM for my computer and found that I could finally run a full orchestra without my computer crapping out. Improving on my MIDI controller with a staccato clarinet sound, I played with main motif of this piece and felt so inspired that I stayed up until 2:00 AM composing. I was gone much of the next day about only had five more hours available to put it.
My desire was to make this piece much longer and smartly paced. I even brainstormed ideas while I was out during the day and wrote down the entire song structure I planned, but once I got home and started working, I realized there was no way the whole idea could be realized in such a short time frame. I rushed like crazy and ended up posting this three minutes before the deadline. There are several things that I'd like to change, but I'm still very happy with the result.
Thank you for taking the time to review! Hopefully I'll do this piece some justice sometime within the next two months.
This song is the definitely heart of Adventure Story, and you made it so. You made it upbeat, fun, happy, and full of adventure. I definitely appreciate your skills and efforts as a music artist and would say that I would definitely love to hear more of them. Every one of your songs, whether it's adapted or original is a beautiful piece of work that generations should and will adore. I would love to play this song and share it with my classmates and friends. If you could make this into sheet music, I would be able to share your masterpieces with everyone I know.
Looking forward to your future works! =D
Favorited it! Dude, you're a genius!
Well, if Vista was a horrible idea and difficult to load, at least it has adequate sounds. Whoa, how did you do it? 26 of all time? Dude, check your rank. You're #8 now. I'm going to vote 5 for this everyday.
It's not retarded at all. It's brilliant. Looking forward for more of your musical works! So what next? Windows XP sounds?
