Some of you may remember from my first demo reel the song titled, "Marimba & Vibraphone". This is the complete version of the song. I used very minimalistic instrumentation and production which I feel fits the song nicely. It is also the first recording in which I used my violin. I am not a good violin player though so it doesn't sound perfect. :)

While you listen to the song, I encourage you to spray paint graffiti on the empty spaces of the Flash document.

Ahh. I'm glad you used the violin, although you slided a bit too much into one of the first notes and the tremolo didn't seem quite strong enough. (I wish I could record my violin to show you what I mean; otherwise I just sound like a prick. >>;)

The rest of the song was excellent; it actually reminded me of Donkey Kong and some other SNES games. The minimalism works, although I agree that a brass section would work as well.

Make more songs. :)

Hehe, thanks a lot! My sloppy violin playing is due to the fact that I have only been playing for about a year or so and I'm teaching myself so my technique is probably flawed. But I appreciate your compliments greatly. :)

I remember when you originally sent me this file. The added violin sounds good. Did you use an effect on the keyboard to make it sound like a marimba? Cause it would be awesome to have one of those!

awesomeness. :lol: Maybe you should just upload your music individually from now on!

This piece is fantastic. It's very improved over the last version, and I love the upbeat, jive-ish feel of the song. It certainly would fit a light-hearted adventure game like Super Mario Sunshine. That violin is excellent. Somehow, I feel that a jazzy brass section would also fit nicely on this song, after the main part of the melody. I envy your performance skills on so many different instruments, haha. Great job, and keep it up!

I was thinking about doing that instead of uploading a bunch at once. :) I'm glad you like the song though. :D

yeps! it seems to work for you and 3r2 better. I also upload songs by themselves occasionally, but only if I have a background animation or a strong message to go with it. =P

And I must finish that dynamic loading music gallery engine soon! And the free music engine as well. And a bunch of other stuff. Man, my schedule's packed.
