The Spirit Engine II OST

Artist's description:
THIS IS NOT the song heard in the game of the same title, but an early draft. For more information about "The Spirit Engine 2" soundtrack check THIS SONG REMAINS as a part of the Trax in Space archive.

Hello asteemed listeners of the interweb.

Here's the deal. I've been working on the soundtrack to "The Spirit Engine 2" for a LONG (read: 4.5 years) time now. The game will be completed this year, and I've been ITCHING to throw sometime up from it that I feel is really representative of the more cinematic scenes.

Because I'd like to make a few cents off the soundtrack at some point, I will most likely take this off the Trax in Space in a few months. The only qualms I've heard thus far are about the vocals at 2:50, which I may or may not remove before it is all said and done. (I'm aware they are synthy, but I'm not too displeased with how they came out. I think it adds enough to the piece and isn't overly distracting, please let me know).

Anyway, I slaved for a few hours on this today and many on other days past. I hope you enjoy. And hell, it has a Duduk! :D

The gentle movements at the beginning remind of scenes like ghosts or despair. It's 5:13 total playing time. At first listen I was entranced to the end. No thought of whether or not it had what am... Read full review

Wait, I just noticed that you compared my writing to the piece in Fifth Element. I absolutely LOVE that piece of music. Thank you very much.

As far as the vocals at 2:50. I wouldn't get rid of them. You would lose the complexity required to defeat the evil god of repetition. First off. Some artists go for that type of vocal modulation. Look at the vocal piece in The Fifth Element. The one at the opera house. They use the same tecnique. Interesting though, that if you are going for a realistic sound, you can edit the attack of the sample to fade in more and it'll sound more like samples than sample.

As a further note. This would have been the piece for many films. Aurtur, Braveheart, Dragon Ryder etc. If you were there when they were making these films you would have had a serous shot at producing the soundtrack for these and similar movies.

Epic, majestic and cinematic song that sounds fantastic. The lead-in is beautiful and the whole axis of theme is based upon wide-orchestral sound with voices that drive the sound both emotive and dark at the same time. No indications of horror or terror which you usually add (to raise the excitement and intensity of the games) even though there are up and downs in the theme it's still calm, mellow and soft. This is by far one of your best works, and absolutely the crown of all orchestral themes uploaded here in TIS.

Now that I think about it (and listened the song a second time), why don't you put a male bass singer to accompany the timid but beautiful female voice. He could come in with the brass hits in about 1.20 and again in 3.20 or something in the loud parts.

Well, I haven't got so sensitive Hi-Fi ears that I could state any significant commets about the mix or sound quality, but as far as that vocal part in the middle is concerned, I'd say it works. Honestly I didn't even pay much attention to it. It's not how realistic the sounds are but how well they fit to the song by their character... You know what I mean :) The track is truly epic and dramatic. It could be a good choise for an opening movie or something but listened just like this won't give it as much credit. It's only crying for a storyline ;) Great stuff anyway!!

That is a very remarkable tune you got there. I like the vocals. Where did you find somebody to sing like that? I like this track....

Stunning / cinematic / dark composition. Plenty of themes, I like however the chord change from very beginning, and how things builds up around it. I think that vocal synthy is not annoying at all, around middle, it adds character to this composition.

Hey! Thanks for sharing the song with me. As requested, I'll give you some feedback. Overall the song is pretty good, but some issues made me feel a bit unconfortable. First, the song seems to click often (as if samples were not properly looped), Second.. the mixing is a bit dry.. you may like reverb or not, but orchestral stuff is played in big, reverberated halls.. so to get the "orchestral" feeling you need more of it. Third.. you are using brasses with high resonance (the sound they do when playing loud) in soft volumes, this is confusing. Everything else is OK i think!

I thoroughly enjoyed what I just heard. For the rest of the TiS gang. This is one of those ones you would want in your personal collection next to your Vivaldi and Beethoven. I'm downloading this piece. By the way. ***** 5 stars and I will also be reviewing this one sometime today.
