I finally finished it! After 3 days of work, I am finally calling this song done!

I won't lie... I am absolutely in love with this song. This is the first song I am truly happy with that I created on my own. And I've been screwin around with music creation since around 1999. So, I hope everyone who listens to this enjoys it as much as I do.

There is no real story to the song, just a sort of theme. The theme is of course regret. The way I built it has a timeline that goes Present, to Past and then back to Present again. With any luck, people will be able to hear the timeline within the song itself.

I'm also interested in hearing the scenarios that people think of when they hear this song. My partner Josh (kelwynshade) thought up the scenario of a king that had just lost a war and was staring down at his destroyed city with it's dying or dead inhabitants lying in the streets. To me, things like that give the song more character and make it that much more enjoyable, so feel free to post what you see when you hear this!

I've talked enough, so lastly I just want to thank Josh for helping me find some good percussion to throw into the song, it really made a difference, and thanks to my friends that put up with me nagging them for their thoughts on the song in general, lol.

Also... if you like this song... go check out Josh's (kelwynshade) song Path of Memories. It was a big influence for me when I made this.

And I'm out!

whoa..

Wow, I'm glad I've listened to this song. It sounds very sad but it has some kind of softness too, because in my opinion, someone who regrets his deeds isn't a bad person at all since he knows that he has done something wrong.
This actually gave me some inspiration for the background story of the main character in a story that I've recently build up. Thank you very much for that inspiration ^.^

The character is a silent but wise and kind man who only fights to protect himself or others. He even manages to touch the hearts of two people who wanted to kill him for their own reasons. By realizing their weaknesses and fears he shows sympathy for them and after making them confused but also showing that he wants to help them and giving them advice, they end up travelling alongside him. In the end it turns out that he didn't use to be who he is now.
In his past, many people died by his own hands. His friends and his love later turned their backs against him when they found out his past, but in the end they were killed by people who wanted to have revenge on that character. When that character learns about this, he too takes revenge on his avengers but fails because he ends up not being able to kill anymore, since he sees the faces of his friends and his love whenever he is about to kill someone. After that, he realizes how horrible he himself had been and begins to repay his deeds by learning the skill of healing and protecting, because he knows the pain of losing people that were very important to him and doesn't want anyone else to have that same pain.

I hope this doesn't sound too cliché or cheesy though xD
Anyway, I love your music.
Nice job ^.^

very moving :)

as you could tell by my one song "a hopeful heart" i'm a sucker for this kind of music. it's full of emotion, i cant believe this wasnt inspired by an experience of yours, it just seems to speak to the heart. it also reminds me a lot of nobuo uematsu's "suteki da ne" (or however its spelled) which is definately a good thing. the only thing i wouldve liked to be included in the song is a definitive climax in the song, other wise its astounding, thanks for recommending me to listen to it :)


KTRECORDS responds:

Sweet, thx for checkin it out. I'm glad you like it. This was my first big solo song so I had to put a lot of TLC into it. I plan on redoing it someday with some better instruments. If that happens, then I made be able to add that climax that people have been looking for in the song.

Anyways, thx again for checkin it out. Check back for more songs from KTRECORDS

Missing something....

A 9, not a 10 you ask? I think it was missing something important. Although the beat and melody weren't repetitive, it felt like it was trying to build up the intensity and burst out with it like a volcano. But that never came. Let me put it this way: It seems like your song was representing a sad moment in a movie etc, but usually when theres a sad moment theres a build up and then a breakdown you know. Not quite sure how to describe it... But an epic piece none the less.
