Take a rest in the night after climbing the highest mountain, watch the distant oceans and continents you still have to cross


First off, I made the rhodes' note progression you hear in the beginning and end of the song quite a while ago. I saved those four bars in case I could use it for another project- and 3 weeks ago, I could continue it. Finally had the inspiration to continue those four bars- and this song is what grew onto it. It was a pretty heavy project file (15 instrument channels, 35+ fx devices), so mixing it was a hell. Made with Reason and Logic rewired. 3 weeks spent on this.


So this songs has some interesting main instruments: Deep rhodes, powerful, huge drums, weeping lead, soaring flute, ethereal choir, subtle bass and a very emotional plucky synth.

Kicks off around 0:27. Sounds best when played loudly.

Very Calm

It's quiet on a whole here but that's not a bad thing, that adds to the kind of calm tune this gives off. It's very easy to listen too and it's pretty long too, though it sounds much longer than it is, there are no problems with this that I can hear, other than having to adjust my volume but I can live with that, lol. The ending is good on this, as is the opening though it doesn't loop, it's still nice.

Everything to this track seems to fit together well, though it does seem a touch repetative, it doesn't really hurt this, it is very easy to listen too and such. Very nice work overall.

Ah well, this is the loudest I can get it. If you see the waveform of the song in a program like Audacity, you'll see the transients (the "attack" of the drums) are pretty damn loud and sharp. It turned pretty muddy when I tried to pump the volume further up.

Thanks for the review!

Very nice and relaxing. It may be a tad bit repititive, but I think that's the problem with almost all relaxing songs, heh.

Anyway, I like the melodies you used in this song very much. Also the drums sound nice.

I really like the mixing of this song. Everything goes along very well together, there's nothing too powerful and nothing too quiet in this song. Every instrument and every melody can be clearly heard. Good job!

Another beautiful song by SBB.
Very well composed, it's got a bit of a videogame feel to it, great choice of synths, great mixing.
Top stuff!

Another nice and relaxing track. I can picture myself sitting in a beachchair beside the silent waves, with a clouded sun above my head, the rain slöowly falling down upon surrounding landscapes. Great melody, keep it up!


Buoy responds:

Slöowly huh, sound like a nice adjective

Thanks for the review!
