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!

great track

I can see why this has been well-received! I like the way you use only two chords. Rather than limit you, it frees this music to change really effectively through different instrumentation and tempos.

Yes, i found tons of ways to manipulate that one very simple chord progression (and some parts use three, but yeah.) Thanks a ton!

Wow!

I saw your new one on the audio portal while looking for a friends song and I'm very glad that I decided to listen to your new one because the title was intriguing. And then of course I had to listen to this one to get the full affect.
And it was amazing! I love music like this and I absolutely loved it! After reading your description, I could totally imagine it all! You have quite a talent!

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.

I don't usually write reviews for songs...

...but this was breathtaking. This goes above and beyond what is hear in movies! This really provokes my imagination. Listening to this, I picture your character as one who grows up as the opposite of what society demands of him, a saint when they want a soldier, and is banished. When the song picks up, I can picture a sudden, massacre-like invasion, and him swooping down to save the innocent people being attacked. A couple of other stories pop into my head from this piece, too.
I have been inspired by this masterpiece!
