Hans Zimmer called.
I know, I'm exaggerating here, but seriously - nice stuff.
Wind unto a Breath.
It's a great ambiance song that you have, certainly calming and the sort of thing I could lay back and listen to for hours. The hints of a choir that you have in there only make the songs so much more to be appreciated. I'm an absolute sucker for choir, so *pop* onto the favourites this goes.
This is definitely a better example of ambiance, fully blending in with it's own style of music. However, and a big however, is that the song itself need lengthening. You could have included much more substance into the song itself - since I'm the type who really gets involved with ambiance, it's sort of being left out for cold - one second you're lying back, peacefully listening to a great track and then suddenly it's over - not fair, brah. The song itself is pure brilliance, the slow buildup to the choir great but the length itself is just... ouch.
I'd suggest adding in some more turns, greater screen time for that choir, mostly working your way through the decibels, and mainly keep the song at it's peak for the longest time possible, before finally letting it go. Just try and lengthen the song out, get it going into some rhythm before letting us go like that. But otherwise, love the acoustic, the subtle macaronis (or whatever the shaking things are called) and the drums, and that choir in bloody brilliant.
Besides being a delicately (see: Axe Murderer) constructed audio submission, it contains the truth of many a demise of a potential "artist". People must listen to this 'bloody long essay', at least new people, to grasp what their fates shall be like if they do not follow the advice of their elders, to learn and grow and be respected in the woodland full of faerie creatures.
As their falsely constructed empires of praise and mercy upon their 2-minute works fall down around them, exposing the very crappy down core of their self-esteem, we shall direct them to this literary dictation - people deserve to know that which has banished them why, and just how lowly the woodland creatures actually thought about them.
As for the submission itself, it's obviously parodical. You might want to try and brush up on your English accents and actually try to make it sound legitimate - sometimes, the best parodies are the ones you don't know are parodies. Theres also an annoying lisp constant throughout the piece, along with that little "thrown voice" thingie that always appears when someone is blatantly throwing their voice. As I absolutely no idea and experience what it's like to be a Voice Actor, I'll not waste time trying to suggest anything to fix that up.
The descriptive language was good, and I can see this being adapted into a flash movie of sorts, just to let people know what an unforgiving and horrible place the Art Forum can be without proper caution. Something along the lines of that Red Riding Hood movie where everyone got eaten. A right proper warning to the newbies, good sir. You've done a favour to the community and deserve to be justly rewarded. Failing that, you get a cookie.
When I was recording it, I wasn't trying to go for an English accent, but it developed into that as the story progressed. As for the thrown voice, I have no idea what's up with that, as I didn't even try to do so.
Anyways, hooray for the cookie.
Listening to this totally made me just want to get up and do... something energetic. For me, thats a pretty big leap =D. Unlike most songs I see, repitition seemed just to enhance this songs mood - pretty techno, even.
Anyway, a 5, 10, and All-time fav (nice ol' fanboy style)
hhhahah!! thanks man! love ya!
