Well performed under the restraints of not having the whole team that the original composer had. It just doesn't have the same kind of kick as the original track though, actually rather lifeless. Like its the theme for the disinterested person walking by a tv playing star wars. It's supposed to sound so much more... soul trembling, if that makes any sense. it could've done with being a little louder, and played with a little more passion put into it around 3:19 it kicks slightly... but to be honest, the removal of the choir seriously watered it down. When you make a cover, it should either be changed, or sound alot like the original. In reference to the original, its like Diet coke. Almost there, but it still tastes empty.
But for the effort, and how skillfully it was played, I give you a 6. Kudos, but it just lacks the passion to me, man.
nicely executed, makes me think of someone being drawn away to a pleasant fantasy while thumbing through a book, or a tired father returning, and peeks in to see his wife and daughter playing happily, hopefully awaiting his return. Definitely gives you a feeling of serenity. Could've done without the static though; unless that's what you're going for? Like an elderly man listening to an old record, reminiscing on old times? I'm just taking up space now, lol, but good job none the less.
Sounds like Mac Lopez and Lee Johnson's work
For that reason alone I'm giving you a lower score. When I first happened upon it, I could've sworn I had heard it before, but without hard evidence, I can't really accuse you of anything. If this is your work, amazing job, its addicting to listen to, and sounds very authentic. Sorry if I'm wrong about the stolen music, its just it sounds like their work
Markodeano is wrong
It sounds somewhat similar, but I would say its because you're both trying to portray the same message of overcoming despair. But to be honest, there is no way for anyone to write a song or a story anymore without copying someone by accident. Everything's been done, its just a matter of telling your tale with your own voice, even if its a road someone before you has endured.
Now that that's out of the way, a good piece, but the quality of some of the intsruments turns me down from it. I'm not a musician, so I can't really point it out, but it sounds very synthesized, and needlessly metallic around 1:03, which kinda sucks because I really liked the burst of emotion there. Personal taste, though. Song wise, pretty amazing, it moved me, and as an aspiring animator, I can see how this could be turned into a beautiful short. Good job!
