This track was made for a school project.
The idea behind this track was the following statement.

' Happiness can't come without misery or sadness '

I personally agree. I believe that you'll learn to apreciate small things better if you have some tough luck at times.

How can you apreciate people if you don't what it's like to be alone ?
How can you enjoy a meal when you don't know what it's like to be hungry ?

The meaning of this song is really truthful, and I think more people need to understand the meaning. People need to experience what it's like to be in that position, and always think ahead to the 'better ending' as shown in "One Chance". This song reminds me of "Life is Beautiful", because they pretty well have the same meaning. Both great songs.

Yeah, the song and the game are a good match. For the original meaning of the song, check my author response to a person a few comments ago.

Great song

Since I am a friend of emotional songs myself no matter if they are happy or sad I like this one quite much.
Please have a listen to one of my songs as well.
Recently I have posted a few loops of different sounds for a melody I am working on.

Great song, great truth.

The music gives the game a great atmosphere.
It's so sad ... it's perfect.
I did not know that I would have much meaning, it's great. I really like, not all the same as other songs.

Great audio!

Aside from thinking about what I would do if the world was going to end, I just like to listen and think about, oh, I don't know. Random things I guess.

Anywho, about that school project, could you give me some more detail? That project sounds awesome.

Also, how do you even make music like this? Does it cost a lot of money? I would love you forever if you respond.

The concept of the task was writing about your own story of life. You had to write it out, but also make a creative version of it. It could be something visual or a poem or something else. I made a little CD on which every track was a different layer of this specific track. Every layer represented something different in my own story of life.

It goes in more details on the actual task but I'll tell you what the layers represent in short.

1. Long strings - representing people that have influence on me. They are what made me choose my values, such as honesty, respect and freedom of speech an actions.
The chords in the music are the foundation for the rest of the song / story. All the other influences drop within the same chords, just like these people are the foundation for my actions.

2. Percussion - representing my experiences and expectations of life. I hope to have a family, children, a job and a home. I choose simple percussion to represent a guideline that I can follow.

3. Instruments such as piano and square synthesis (positive timbres) - Representing the positive influences on my story. These are friends, school, youth movement, volunteering, etc

4. Bass and out of tune synthesis - representing negative influences such as failures, getting bullied, situations where people that I love get hurt, losing people, etc

5. Fadeout in the end of the song - representing my expectations of the future. The further it goes, the harder it is for me to predict what it will sound like. Near the end it gives the illusion of a room growing bigger, representing it being harder and harder for me to predict what my future life will look like.

6. Full track ( this one ) - representing my full story of life.


And I just make my music in a demo of FL 8
