Re: AOE4 Trailer Released

Ι am with Thrar. I suggest looking up the documentary Everything is a Remix. There is no parthenogenesis in creation.

Re: Classical music

For starters this kind of work raises a huge philosophical debate on what is art, music, etc. Which is a never-ending one and I don't wanna bother arguing much. Then his work (listen to dataplex here) includes both the visual and the auditory stimulus, so if you listen only to the sound/music/track/ .....

This is the trailer with lower saturation. I do think it looks much better. People with some doubts about the graphics will probably like this more.

As I said the problem was the colours, .....

Something that went off radar was the physics. Look at how the walls are fall down at the trailer, the gate-tower on the right and the outpost on the left

Re: AOE4 Trailer Released

It's still very early to say much. The trailer is on a pre-alpha stage which means there is still loads of work to be done. On a second more considerate thought, the colours are the main drawback them being too bright and less realistic. The graphics are decent.

Re: AOE4 Trailer today @ 8PM GMT

Mixed feelings and the hype is dead for me already. I believe for many of us. The trailer isn't anything mindblowing either

Re: AOE4 Trailer today @ 8PM GMT

Not overly impressed, but the trailer is still too early. The feel is still cartoonish imo, the colours are too bright that don't fit the era. As for dealing with the middle ages, it shouldn't be a surprise. I might play, when it is released, but atm I can only see a remake of the same game. Let's s .....

I will not recommend super famous works. From symphonic works I love Dvorak's 9th Symphony. I am a big fan of the Sibelius, definitely check his Violin Concerto, Tapiola, and Symphonies No. 2 and 7. From chamber music, look up Brahms Clarinet trio a .....

It's really destructive to dismiss the 50% of a masterpiece. (referring to the orchestral part) You clearly don't know the content, I suggest you to study the full score. As for the authorship of the piece, just look in wikipedia.

Re: Classical music

Fun fact: Mozart didn't write his requiem. A student of his completed the largest part of the work. Mozart finished himself the Introitus, parts of the fugue in Kyrie and Dies Irae, 8 bars of Lacrimosa and Offertorium.

Most eras in the History of Western Music, tried to differentiate from the aesthetics and the beliefs of the previous.
Medieval ages started expanding monophonic chants and songs by adding extra voices, thus exploring the possibilities of polyphony. Highly influenced by church in most regions of Eur .....
