Thanks for the feedback, Safi!Hello rottoy! Lovely little reinterpretation! I'd carefully rework in real-time the Eq & countermelody a bit on the Horns (press stop, take a step back, and try/sing to find the best, maybe simplest, melodic contour), you could also play, [starting especially at 1:08, for continuity sake an added boom], and play in every 8/4 measure a bit more with the dynamics of all those chords underneath, you'll get that nice "Howard Shore-Lord Of the Rings" feel, but apart from that, great love was put into the playing of the forward instruments, and they sound really great, I'm sure if Hans takes the time to listen, he'll be pleasantly reminded of the great journey making this movie was!
Thanks for sharing!
You are completely right, it's still lacking some 'oomph'. I spent most of my time getting the solo strings right as that's what got me into this particular mockup.hey rottoy nice work. two comments i'd make though are the violin seems like its playing an octave too high. sounds like it would be in a better range 1 octave lower. kinda feels like its being stretched beyond its limit almost like a vocalist struggling to hit those high notes, if that makes any sense (probably not). and secondly i think you're missing a nice low frequency bed in the form of a Doublebass or sub bassline just to underpin everything. if you listen to the original piece by HZ that's very evident. otherwise really nice work with everything else in the piece
Precisely my sentiment as well, I felt the lower range of the violin didn't suit this particular rendition.I think the good part is that ist an other version then the original. Theres good room for the 2 solo strings and the solo horn. The solo violin is at its "shining" octave....
