Kevin Arsenault replied to Olivér Kovács's discussion Black Hole
"I definitly like the atmosphere and the chord progression in this piece. I totally get that space/black hole thing. Although, I feel that this piece needs more dynamics. Especially in the different sections, I felt that everything just kind of…"

Kevin Arsenault replied to Marco Di Stefano's discussion Portrait #4 - Flooded Memories
"Hey Marco, Great ambient track! I do think like roger that this is more of a wandering piece than a directed one, but to me this isn't a bad thing. Is it me or do I get some sort of radiohead vibe mixed with something else while listening to…"

"Hey thanks Michael, I was initialy supposed to come back to orchestra, but got a bit lazy at then end and used the muddy ending instead. Kind of finish on a question mark instead of a period."

Michael Hamby replied to Kevin Arsenault's discussion Epic orchestral piece
"Wow, excellent mix, sound and song. As an opinion, I just wish the orchestra returned at the end of the song and ended with a bang. Like a build maybe.  When the orchestra dropped out and there was that haunting piano, I was like hell yes!…"

Kevin Arsenault replied to Olivér Kovács's discussion Dark City
"Hi Olivér, This was an interesting listen indeed. I don't really listen to this type of music, but I felt that this song really represented the theme of a dark city. Was this used for project in particular (movie, video game)?"

Kevin Arsenault replied to Emily Bond's discussion Elements Contest Pieces
"Theses are three well written pieces and I've enjoyed them all. Although to me I have a preference for Blue-Green world. I love the ethereal feel in the song. Also for once, I really like the piano tone. Usually for piano music, I like the…"

Emily Bond replied to Kevin Arsenault's discussion Epic orchestral piece
"I liked this piece!  It has power and suspense and would work well in a video game or soundtrack.  Personally, I liked the two themes, though there may need to be more of a transition as mentioned below.  It brings the feeling of an…"

"My dad thought exactly the same thing. This is definitely something I will have to work harder on my next pieces (this isn't the first time I went full prog for a simple transition). Again thanks all for your comments it's great to have…"

Bob Morabito replied to Kevin Arsenault's discussion Epic orchestral piece
"This is really good music, both very exciting and then touchingly beautiful..well done!! but IMHO I think a little more work needs to be done around the minute mark to bring the two sections together in a more convincing way..theyre both really good…"

roger stancill replied to Kevin Arsenault's discussion Epic orchestral piece
"Well then... Aloha Kevin, This started out very well and good for the first minute but then... at least for me, the vision was lost. It became 'disjointed' (unless the 'visual concept/video' changed scenes). I hear 2 different…"

"Yet, metal guitar is not a free for all. There re scales and modes that are followed."

Kevin Arsenault replied to Kevin Arsenault's discussion Epic orchestral piece
"Thanks for taking time to listen to this. You aren't the only only who has given me this comment, so I'm gonna guess you intuition is right on this one. I did improvise the guitar part and my relative ear is not yet that tonal (too much…"

Bob Porter replied to Kevin Arsenault's discussion Epic orchestral piece
"Kevin, Thanks for posting this. My only question is the guitar notes at the 2:34 mark. One or both of them seems out of key as though one should be an accidental. Or it's one that shouldn't be. I could tell easier if you were able to…"

Gav Brown replied to Kevin Arsenault's discussion Epic orchestral piece
"Hi Kevin, This piece is well constructed and has good production values. It fits in with the kind of epic-video-game/or action-movie music genre. I did find it similar to other music like I have heard posted in the genre. If I lined up your piece…"
