Hey there.could you be more specific? are you looking for constructive feedback on the composition, arrangement, production, mixing etc etc?
I've listened to your piece a couple of times now and here are my impressions:
Overall, great effort. My favorite part is :15-:22 and I think that harmonic progression could be developed/extended more and serve as the harmonic base for the A section of the song. Also the piano there is a really nice touch.
- The piece could really use more harmonic and melodic development/variance throughout (it mainly sits on one plane, idea-wise; almost like an attempt at "epic minimalism").
- There's not much building in the piece. It's very binary in intensity (the latter half of the piece doesn't build to a climax and feels as if it's always at the climax and then suddenly ends).
- The men singers' 2-3 pattern could be used more sparingly.
- Instruments are used unconventionally to strange effect (drum rolls, wildly intervallic writing for the women singers). This isn't always a bad thing but it definitely distracted me.
- Almost all parts rely on short articulations almost all the time.
My main advice would be to keep studying music in this genre as well as orchestration (check out the many threads on this site for suggestions on how to do this). Also, try your hand at some Epic Hybrid. Keep writing and having fun! Looking forward to more pieces from you.
I feel quite spoiled as the advice I receive on other forums for my EDM is quite vague and short.
ah that's explains alot. i came into this genre from an EDM background too and the hardest part to learn was that you cant just keep looping the same 8 bars over and over again, it just doesn't work in this genre. you really have to push yourself to keep things changing and interesting but not changing to the point that it becomes a different cue. all the advice you got from tehreal is good what i would add is to listen to lots and lots of professional tracks in the genre. i hope if you like this music you know who Thomas Bergersen (two steps from hell) is i would advice listening to his work. there are lots of other really great epic composers out there too.
also check out Daniel James, he does great tutorial videos on all of this stuff. but most importantly just keep writing and learning from every new track you finish.
