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.




Rated 4.5 / 5 stars


i loved this song, the slow sweeping melody and drumming line in the backround with its high notes. It really relaxes you, even the repetative parts seem right. This song does bring me to an ocean but it reminds me of Ecco the Dolphin from sega megadrive. Which i suppose is a good thing considering its an oceanic tune. Very Nice Song!

At first I thought it was going to be a typical slow song...


This was great! I loved it! Your music is awesome, a big inspiration to me and others.

Only problem with this, it doesn't keep you fully hooked and it's a kind of predictable.

But the pros definitely outweigh the cons.

Very nice!

Nice and relaxing. Truly sounds like you're sitting on bench or something overlooking the fields or the ocean on a quiet peaceful day, losing yourself in it all. Once again, you have proven yourself to be among the best music composers here on Newgrounds.

Thanks for the great review!! :D
