This is my theme for a certain character. He is a good guy, and he is the son of the "Wind God."

It starts out really slow and ominous, representing his birth and his purpose. He is sad, he has entered a world of pain and suffering. About halfway through the song, his heroic theme is played in its full stringy glory. The song then speeds up, it sounds like he is "flying," then at the end he slowly comes back down to the ground.

The entire song is based off of two chords, listen and you'll know what I'm talking about.

This song took me a long time, so please listen to it before rating it. I've had this theme in my head for years, but this is by far its best reincarnation, so I decided to post it on Newgrounds.

The exact "storyline" is unimportant, just tell me what you think of the song! If you liked it, take a listen at some of my other songs.

EDIT: This song has been a large success on my part. Keep rating it up you guys! Thank you so much. Also, I've just written a thematic companion to this song, "The Wind God's Lament." Check that out if you enjoyed this!

.....Amazing.......

I am speechless....I can't think of an accurate way to compliment this.....This feels right out of a movie. With it's sweeping scope, it leads one through the world of the mind. Through peaceful valleys seen from far above. A traveler far from home, continuing onward, aided by the hope embedded in this song......It has such a mystical aura about it. It feels like the notes are dancing at times.
By the way, that was an awesome choice to include the bell, it adds a certain air to the song that reminds one of peaceful dreams. As to this song being for one character, I don't know, this song could define a whole scene, even a whole movie, end credits, a flight of fancy. I agree with XshadowcasterX on some of his previous review, especially about the feel of the song. The choice of instruments is amazing. I don't see why this isn't in a movie yet....
Very well done.

Great song but..

I give you a 10 because I really like the feel of the song. It's perfect for the category, but only didn't really feel like how you described it.

I feel that the beginning was very Ominous and dark and went on a little to long. So this caused me to wonder where this was going based off how you explained it in the description.
But fret not, cause once it gets to what you sounds like what you described it really "Takes Flight"!

I actually got the vision of Peter Pan flying high in the sky swooping and diving and crowing at the top of his lungs. And then the song ends perfectly as he lands back at the tree!

Over all great song, and I hope yo keep up the great work.


Tainlorr responds:

Yeah, forgot to explicitly mention the ominous part, I did however say "mostly light hearted" haha.. Thanks so much.
