Kevin Arsenault replied to Brandon Schwab's discussion Words To Live By - Brandon Schwab. Feedback Appreciated.
"Hi Brandon,
This is a very interesting piece dynamic wise, lots of up and downs in thermes of volume and expression. The harmonic content is also interesting, not extremely experimental, but good for the general listener. Keep up the good work."

"Thanks Gav for taking the time to listen.

As far for similarity, I guess not experimenting away from the tonal center does get kind of repetitive. Although, that was what I was aiming since I do struggle with transitions so I wanted to see if I…"

"Hi Kevin, I listened to the first 3 minutes or so and found it to be ok. I spot-listened after that point - It does remind me of other things I have heard before and as such, I didn’t continue on with it. This may be just a matter of personal taste…"

"For the panning, I don't feel it needs more panning, but more depth. By controlling the reverb send of each section you can achieve this dept. Ex:
Violins and cello -> -8db reverb send
2nd violins and violas -> -6db reverb send
Horns -> -5db…"

"Hey Galith,

First I'd like to say that I found this piece to be an enjoyable listen. It's very punchy and overall has that epic music vibe. As far of production, I found some details that could be a little polished.

For starters, I had the feeling…"

Bob Morabito replied to Kevin Arsenault's discussion The kings burial
"Beautifully touching, sad and mournful...building up to a great tribute to the king. You paint a really good picture of him thru your music--a beloved, kind, brave warrior king mourned by all.
This couldnt have been done any better, IMHO:)

Thanks…"

"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 this?"

"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! Great…"

"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 notes,…"

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 ongoing story.…"

"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 compliments…"
