This song is not in a battle

This is really a break from my standard type of writing, it's a classical piece that I tried to make sound a bit like bach. Initially it was just really fast organ riffs, but I got a little carried away and replaced the organ with strings and obnoxious brass sounds.

It's a little repeditive, but it has some variation at the end.

I hope you like it.

is it really a classical piece? I can see this tune definately in a computer game. The instruentation is well chosen and the mix brilliant. Why is it called Bachenwald? What is the meaning? I dont like the tempo change.

midi organ versus midi strings
the organ works better in midi - but!!! this is a really good construction! fantasy game music - I feel like speeding in a coach along a brittle mountain path while storm and rain and thunder gather round the Count's castle...

The brass sounds are great! Obnoxious indeed! like they should be... great work, too bad about the midiness of some of the strings. Won't be too bothersome in a fantasy game though

hmm, all of my friends say it sounds like video game as well...I guess I've been playing a few too many lately.

The name "bachenwald" derives from the fact that I intended to write a Bach-like organ piece at first. Then I decided that it sounded like the kind of thing you would hear in some kind of fantasy movie in some deep dark forest, so I added "wald" (forest in german) to the end. It was then "Bach Wald", which sounded weird, so I added the "en" for good measure.

The synth I used is derived from midi, so its no surprise that it sounds cheezy and fake. I should experiment with the instrumentation a bit more.

i like this, rather than computer game music i would say it sound more like cradle of filth or some goth metal band, just without the screaming and drums and guitars! some ahh auhhs vox over the top might sound cool.
well done though, this must have takin friggin ages to make.

Powerful!  Awesome arangement.  Very fantasy game-ish, as people are saying, and it reminds me of some of the Lord of the Rings scores.

I'm not too keen on the tempo changes, maybe if they were slightly differently done...though I'm not sure how.  And when it goes quiet I think it goes a little too quiet.

Other than those two things, awesome work!

Definitely a change from your norm!
Wow! Peter and the Wolf on Acid ! Lol
Not really, a totally amazing piece of music more like it!

Your only 16? double WOW! That you were a talented song maker I knew, but this takes you into the realms of super geniuses!
A VERY amazing creation; the slow down : could have softened the notes as they slow down  ?? That it's like a game? Lara maybe? More like an exiting film score!
