I was going to review all of them in the order you posted, then I decided to do them in whatever order came up in my program (alphabetically)... which might be the same (at times), maybe not. Eventually i'lll get to all of them. though I did the first one you posted first. There are sort of "as they come" comments, but some I went back and added to by the end of the piece or as I looked over the music in Noteworthy (my midi program) Riptrail - very eerie, futuristic. liked orchestra/brass chord hits that occured at the begining and end of the piece. Bell motif fit in well, I liked the sounds created by the bells. I didnt like the (according to my computer) Cello part starting at 1:20... I liked the part, but (much as I love cello) I think that the melody would be better suited to a woodwind...it grew on my as the piece progressed, but initially I thought that the string sound clashed too much with the flow of the piece. I liked the use of the pan flute, great sound for the piece; it added to the "eerie" nature. I like some of the motifs used, especally in the higher register such as at 2:00. Overall, very awesome composition job! aboysdream-too disjuncted at beginning, dont relaly know what effect you were going for, it didnt suit me. many times melody in flute at begining was way too busy. Simplify it and it will have a better, more emotional effect. liked brass at 1:40. pizzicato strings awesome effect throughout piece. 1:49 the initial transition to the violin melody was almost too sudden and I would have started it by blending with a woodwind like the clarinet to make the transition less sudden between two types of instruments. 2:35 liked the pizz. ritardando effect through rhythmic lengthening of notes. melody could be brought out more at times. balance a little off sometimes. 4:10 didnt like busy flute party, needed simplification. 4:55 transition violin-> flute too empty, keep more harmony in the background, it "felt" like a section forgot to play 5:50 melody seems to be taking up space rather than furthing melodic development..it sticks out becusae it is so out of place among the over melodic and harmonic movement of the piece. 6:10 few measures of fast melody seemed out of place. 7:28 fast melody movement stood out. 7:35-7:50 increasing intervals need more melodic interest, either through more interesting rhythms or though harmonic counterpoint. 8:57 I didnt like the minor second, dissonance is out of place. 9:215 - 9:25 too empty with not enough melodic interesting. keep up the harmonic accompaniment or add some counterpoint. interesting applause effect at end. Overall I liked it, some great melodic moments and awesome harmonies at times. I dont know what style you try to write it, its great through. Its like a constant dance between major, minor, and modal music. I like ^_^ childrenatwar- i LOVE the rhythmic setup for the piece, especally when the original harmonic elements are repeated doubletime. Melody started a bit too fast, work into it with same melody, just more pauses and build into the full melody. i'd want more harmony during original occurances of the melody, some 4th and 5th harmonization (is that a word?). 2:00 like the motif with temelo strings. 2:25 awesome chord movement, would like more reccurance of strong power chords, seemed angry/more emotional. 3:00(appx) need more heavy orchestra hits thorugh 3:10, seemed a bit empty. 3:23 love the chord use! 3:33 good return to motif 4:20 need movement in melody with chords and counter point, climatic part of piece, and seemed to die out a bit there. 4:35 has awesome movement between the voices and rhythmically. The ending seemed a bit too abrubt and anticlimactic. Seemed to end right at the height of the piece. I would have returned to the first melody and closed with it to wrap it up, the end was just sort of like "oh... you mean its over?" It didnt have enough closure for what was a really awesome piece. I'll listen to more later tonight (err...morning) or tomorrow (later today for me, actually). My hand is starting to hurt from taking notes I hope my comments are helpful!
