I've been working on this for a while now, but it's not complete yet. It's built upon just a simple melody & progression with the I, IV, V, & vi chords, plus a bunch of measure by measure modulation that goes into a very dissonant build up and then release. Tell me what you think. Crit for crit, of course.

Updated version below.

Sounds pretty cool, sounds like it would be the intro to some rock anthem or intro to an album or something. Pretty cool, pretty cool.

I agree with the guy above. I think this could be a great intro piece. I keep thinking of a fantasy video game, maybe Final Fantasy actually. Sounds a whole lot like old-school Nobuo Uematsu. I really like it. Even the dissonance buildup feels like that. I think it's even more true considering it's a MIDI piece perhaps, but I really enjoy this music.

here's mine if you want to see it:

Kind of makes me think of Queen. especially the last few measures.

It was amazing. Except, I wasn't really feeling all those tempo changes. I think they were fairly unnecessary and didn't sound too good. Other than that, this is a great start.

The ending is pretty rushed and the tempo changes near the end I don't really like but the melody and the way you repeated it with variants I really liked, and I liked the part where you slwed down and went quiet... very atmospheric... :)

I removed some of the tempo changes and added some bass. More bass to come soon.

I loved it all up until measure 23. There were some parts that could have been executed a little bit better, but still - up until the very end - that was a very solid piece.

didn't so much like the ending,
but the beginning was sweet.

I absolutely love that piano intro, fits the song perfectly, good job man ( the other parts are ok, but the opening is just flat out good.) Also I was thinking that you would break out into a rock epic lol, but either way I like your choice of direction. Overall pretty good the way can you crit mine?

Ooh!! that soooo wants a huge C chord or something finish it of lol....i can see why someone said queen....driving single note with chord stabs, nice touch though.....I loved the synth line as well. If i had to make a surgestion i would personally harmonize a decent from bar 7 from a high C keeping the A (17 E-string) below....if that made any sence to you at all say "Im Gay!" Bowlin fo soup style!

it sounds so cool, the chords stick right out, this would make a very good video game soundtrack or maybe a Science Fiction/Fantasy film?
