"Now then, I am no Musician, as you'll soon notice. However, I do compose short pieces from time to time as a hobby; completely therapeutic, utterly recreational, and purely for fun. It does relax and reinvigorate me, so that can be considered a nice little bonus for such a casual project." ~ Joshua 'The Triumvirate' Dsiorpov, on the topic of his proficiency in Music Aesthetics.





Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you one of a few humble little jingles I've been working on in my pastime. Once you get past the slightly-reduced quality, and the MIDI-like feel, perhaps you will enjoy it.

Made with Garageband.

The drum loop is free, modified a little by yours truly. Boldt Piano Instrument is also free, but it would be nice to make a donation to the guy here www.d.umn.edu/~bold0070/projec… if one wants to use his loops, as he did work on them quite nicely. :nod:





Just a few more thoughts:
- Do tell me how the volume is, whether you had to adjust it because it was too loud or too soft.
- Please inform me of any glitches.
- I do not take song requests.
- Hopefully this doesn't sound identical to anything you've heard. I don't listen to the radio much, so I'm not aware of any accidental similarities. I fully guarantee that the melody and harmony of this was made from scratch.
- The file size is almost 3 Megabytes, so depending on your computer, the loading time might be a little bit long.
- The loading bar was a free one I got off the net. I don't remember where exactly, but it was either one of these three: preloaderz.com/ preloaderz.com/design/free-pre… www.flashvalley.com/fv_compone…
- Thanks again for dropping by! Comments are much appreciated!

There's a nice beat to it. I didn't know people could post their own music on deviantart. There's no special category for that stuff...hmm. Might make a great suggestion on the Suggestion forums!

Yeah, there's no way to post music directly, so people bypass that by posting flash animations, gifs or movies.

You could try acid express as a program, it's a loop thing but it work really well and is easy to use. If you prefer the midi thing, there's also Reason or a lot of othr composing program, but they usualy aren't free (but you know... internet...hum hum!)

Anyway, This was awesome! I too love to fool around with music, but got nowere near that great of a work! ^^ it's catchy, sounds like a theme, and is just quite awesome! ^^

I would love to hear the same notes on better sounding instrument however, it would add a level of epicness to an already great track! =D

That much influence, eh? Surprising for me, really. the thing I did was very basic, and this music wasn't too bad considering what I used. I wasn't scared to go public, that was the thing for me, but you got the (PROFANITY) to finally post yours! EPIC and BRAVE.

I also agree with XThe Eliminator, a scroll bar and replay button are necessary.

Nice catchy little piece, well done for a hobby.

The volume was just fine, I recognize no loading issues or similarities.

And to further on Boot's idea, orchestrate this, throw in a few more melodies and you wouldn't just have a song for the series, you'd have it's opener. Now THAT would be something.

Though, if it's possible next time, see if these two things can be added: a scroller bar and/or a replay button.

Oh? Hmmm. Do you use headphones? I think that may be why the volume is fine for some and weak for others.

Lol, I'll be needing a more powerful program than Garageband if I'm to make this an orchestral piece. I'm all up for that idea, however. :D

A scroller bar? I'll do some research for that. As for the replay button...you serious? You actually want to hear this song more than once? O____o

DarkX1122 Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2012
Yes! A full critique requires more than one listen surely! I would have preferred to have left a longer review, but this was very simple. Hence, I didn't have much to say. But if you do more complicated stuff, I will NEED a replay button if I want to seriously review your works.

Understand, though I write, I'm going to college to be a trombonist in an orchestra. I love music, playing and listening. So next time you post something, you can bet I'll review it.
