When I started listening, Final Fantasy immediately popped into my head. Then I read that Nobuo Uematsu did the soundtrack, and was like "ah..". :) He's my idol. So, I really like this. The violin is beautiful. I wish I had an xbox 360, this sounds like it would be a very emotional game. Might have to buy the soundtrack now :o
Oh mah gawd
I listened to this and I jizzed in my pants. This is fantastic.
Yeah, I agree with Rwinius on this one. The violin should have flowed more rather than cutting off so quickly. I really wanted to like it, but it got a bit repetitive hearing the same bass parts and a melody that kept cutting short. And weird ending. But I just love this kind of music and these instruments.. so *cough*
Pretty much in total agreement with emocidalqueer. I'm a fan of string quartets.. so I might be a bit biased. I liked it a bit more. Though, I am definitely not a fan of the ending either :P Totally changed the mood.. and yeah it just sounded weird to end like that. The rest was cool, though.
Works very well as a mood-setter, or just something to play in the background of a movie/game/whatever, as it's a bit slow and boring to me on its own. But it's a choir, so you can't really go crazy with that, huh? :P
Harmonies were good at first, but then you had a couple bad ones which made me cringe. Also, super short.
Liked it at first, but then it got pretty repetitive and um.. just empty sounding. There was too much silence, and not much going on. There were a maximum of two instruments playing at the same time, and half the time only one instrument. Doing this doesn't allow many possibilities.
I like this a lot. The parts where the strings come in remind me of some of Joe Hisaishi's work (composer for Hayao Miyazaki films (Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke)), especially a track from spirited away. And the melody at around 1:06 reminds me of FFX. :P Yeah, everything reminds me of something. But that's a good thing. I really really like this :o
Wow, being compared to Joe Hisaishi is flattering. I've always liked his stuff.
Sounded great at first...
But then.. what happened? It's like the melody is in a different time signature than the piano. :\ And it felt very choppy, like you were kind of just throwing in some random notes for the melody. It didn't work very well at all. I like the instrument quality, though...
The string melody sounds really familiar... Beautifully crafted, though.
