I initially worked this on FL without a single idea, then when it was finished, I decided that it'd be for a city covered in soot, similar to London at the height of industrialisation, where it's perpetually cold, dark and grey and it rains all the time. There isn't a single day of shine, and the people there are depressed. It is where the protagonist of Les Histoires Duchemin (my series of works) is brought up.

I discussed this theme with a friend, who's working the story with me, and he imagined the queen of the neighbouring country visiting this place and saying, "This is the capital... indeed, the capital of soot!"

I'm especially happy about the end bit, because this is the first time polyphony has been evident in my works. Shimomura-style! :D It's also the first time I've played with classic echo on FL.

P.S. Those of you who keep track of my YT would realise that this track plays at the end of my 200 sub special. This is the answer to the sneak preview I've given you. ^^

Edit 22.07.2012: Version 2 of Capital of Soot can be found here:

depressing, almost scary, the song of defeat , the aftermath of war, since you mention London in the industrial revolution, it gave me the idea of the same place, WWII, operation sea lion, and after an bomb raid, the main character, possibly a young boy, is looking at his home destroyed by the bombing, the speeches urging the people to be resilient is a distant drone in his mind, as he is filled with fear, hatred, sadness, and darkness has dispelled his innocence, after watching the destruction, he walks down the street, past destroyed buildings, dead bodies, not sure himself where he is going, or where he should go, will he join the battle? will he evacuate London for safety? he then stops, and there are tears in his eyes...
quite perfect for an anti-war themed movie, or any sad scene, I personally didn't like this song as much as your other works, and yet it gave me such an vivid idea of the horrors on war, and so, I present to you, a 4.5 rating,

Astounding.

This is perhaps the greatest song I've heard in a long time.

Great

A very compelling theme here and good variety and changes as you go through. Only wish the piano weren't panned completely to one side (maybe you did this to accommodate the violin?)...the piano plays through the whole piece, so having it to one side detracts a little. Otherwise really nice!

Troisnyx responds:

I would think so (about the panning), yes. I generally place the piano at the centre, though it might not always be the best option. :S I'll keep that note about the panning in mind and see what I can do to better it.

Thanks very much! ^_^
