@dreikelvin – While I think PauloBeat was extremely rude, the track sounds like you would try to glue together some previous recorded violin loops to a piano you wrote/ recorded.
At 1:15 and 1:32 there are some parallelisms that to my ear sound a bit … meh. Nice harmonies at 0:48, quite unexpected, but I feel like the left solo violin doesn’t fit perfectly, don’t know… can’t put my finger on it.
Anyway, nice track, nice video, could have been on AJ.

thanks for your input :) I appreciate that more than users just giving out lame comments without any productive information whatsoever. especially, if they are unexperienced, like PauloBeat. I was actually not looking for criticism. sorry, if I was not clear enough with my initial post. I wanted to show how it is possible to cope with rejection here at audiojungle (or similar places). I turned the whole thing around instead and gave something back to the envato community. the video already has good exposure on youtube and vimeo and I am getting quite positive reactions there. I hope the videographers will get some good exposure through it.

thanks to all the other musicians here for the positive vibe! success to you all.

take care!

Nice work, and some of the videohive footages are fricken awesome too! It might just be that it’s not what AJ are looking for….maybe you should throw in a delay guitar and 4 to floor beat…kidding :)

:D

Hi Dreykelvin,

i’ve listened to your track and I do not understand why it was rejected…
Did they told you why?
I really don’t understand their new rejection policy. Your track is high quality enough… And you’re not the first of this kind.

Anyway, keep up the good work mate! :)

thanks! I don’t care to be honest :P they always use copy&paste replies…something along the lines of “the arrangement and overall quality of the song does not meet our general requirements” – submitting to audiojungle does not have anything to do with music taste. only sales are important. right now what’s really popular: motivational music with the usual temper trap guitar or ukulele, as well as cinematic trailer music. it comes along with it if you are trying to sell music commercially :P you can’t change it.

what I am trying to prove here is, especially to the lesser experienced authors, it is important to find your right outlet. if someone rejects your material or if there is some guy who yawns at your music, give a flying flint about it and move on.

the piano I used is Native Instruments “The Giant”

thanks for the kind words and success to you my friend!

and yet again, consumerism has claimed another victim!

I wish you and your chocolate friends all the best and get well soon!


Well guys, I’ve had a boo boo. :( Christmas shopping is very dangerous as many of you may already know. I was out buying stuff and I got my shopping bag handles tangled up. In a fit of impatience I yanked at them and one of them fell to the ground. Within moments my worst fears were confirmed: one of the beer bottles had broken. It was a craft brewed beer from Speyside where I grew up, although that’s not strictly relevant. Anyway, in my grumpy state I carelessly reached into the bag to get the bottle out. Immediately there was a burst of pain in my thumb. The blood started flowing. It got over all my high quality food items and my hand looked a gory mess by the time I got back to my flat. I cleaned up and what remained was a nasty gash on my thumb at least 1 cm long. Showing you the injury would be too disturbing, but I can show you the battle damaged container of some overpriced chocolates I bought.


Anyway this is a cautionary tale – please take care everyone. I probably won’t be able to play guitar for 1 or 2 days which really isn’t a problem at all… but what if I had a gig to play? What if I even played gigs at all? So everyone remember a boo boo is never far away. These kinds of tragedies make it all the more important to give what you can to Boo Boo Aid. Thank you my friends, and please stay safe out there. :)

just a little status update:

+ scab has mostly disappeared and the bleeding stopped on thursday

+ it still hurts when you apply slight pressure. I have to be careful tying my shoes, using scissors or while doing the dishes

+ it started to itch today, which is generally “a good sign”

+ at some occasions, I play with it a little and pretend it’s a mouth that I can move by pulling on my skin
