His Majesty Unfathomed

Since this is a "Songs for review" board I had wondered if instrumentals were accepted. It's been awhile since I posted anything. I am going to listen to others tunes and comment.

If only tunes with words are accepted please let me know and I'll pull this.

This is a classical music piece composed originally for piano which I made into an orchestral piece.

Very nice piece @Timothy Smith . You lull the listener into a wonderful space and then introduce tension to demand their full attention.

Enjoying the listen.

I`m underqualified to comment on your compostion @Timothy Smith ... other than to say I found it very enjoyable; relaxing with some tense passages and that irish whistle making a nice contrast with the classical instruments.

Hola

I really liked your composition, it has that color of time of kings and palaces Very pleasant to listen to...

You say this song is for review this is why I can comment you the following:
I don't know, but when the flute appears and joins the violin 1'10 approx. I think I hear some dissonance? Maybe they are my headphones
And if the pizzicatos had more volume? I think the rhythm they offer is important.
Sorry if what I say bothers you, but I can't help getting involved in what I hear ...
Very good work, @Timothy Smith

And your piano version?
I did not know that to live I had to die so many times

Leon thanks for listening and your comments.

Dutchbeat, Thanks for listening and your kind remarks! Feels good to know I posted it in the right place. ::thumb:: ::thumb::

Robert, You are most certainly qualified to comment on this! Thanks you.

Thank you  Mora Amaro La Loba. I appreciate your critical ears. I also heard a few things I want to correct. I will follow up on this!
Thank you.  :ok:

About the piano composition. Sure I can also post the original version I played to make this compo.

Hi @Timothy Smith I also feel I'm not qualified to comment on this other than to say, it was an enjoyable listen.

Not something I would normally listen to, but as I've said before, that is a great joy of the Kitchen, it opens your ears to different genres and experiences.

It must take a lot of work and creativity to come up with something like this.

cheers

Thank you for listening Jurgen. I can appreciate that we all have different directions in music :) I hope to hear some of your music soon!

Mora Amaro La Loba said- " And your piano version?"

@Timothy Smith  - wonderful sounding an thoughtful piece. I also wondered if this is the right board for instrumentals, but until the admins decide to add yet another board, it is fine to post it here. I  guess it is usefulto mention it actually is an instrumental both on soundcloud and here - so that folks are not expecting any singing.

This by the way is Wikipedia's definition of a song
'' song is a musical composition intended to be sung by the human voice'. - So we can alway say that our instrumental pieces are intended while not actually have been sung yet...

And Merriam Webster gives as a second meaning -  poetical composition
