Thank to S3C very very much for the suggestion with Symphonic Choirs.

Sad and dark melodies with strings, choirs and some chromatic percussion.

This is the soft version. I'm making a hard version with drums and faster pace.

Comment either you like it or not, I just want people to critic me or give a specific reason why you zero-bomb me. Thanks!!!

Although it took me quite half a day to make 12 layers of basic ah, eh, eeh, ooh, em verses with WordBuilder plus another 2 hours for constructing the equalization level (SC sounds are fucking fat, even with Kontakt I couldn't fix them); I finally get SC to work properly with WordBuilder first time in 5 months, fucking unbelievable.

Soprano, tenor and serene. A lot of cut-off/mixing with LFO.

I should have checked your music more often. I should had watched my way before crossing that intersection. I should have met you before you left. Finally I should value my life more with beautiful stuff such as this marvelous song.

Life is short. I regret that I let you left so quickly just for bigger causes. Thank you for making wonderful music, Thomas Lam.

........... O:

Did I just hear the lamentations of angels from above the stars? Do they mourn the death of a God? That's what I believe I am hearing in this piece. The weeping of an angelic choir as they lament the death of their holy Deity.

Honestly I don't really know what is the right feeling when composed this song. Could be about mourning dead person (more like it), or about a lonely person...

I just have somewhat good sense of writing sad songs. But in the end I usually can't come up with a decent title.

Thanks a lot for your expressions. :)

Serene, evocative stuff

Very beautiful and atmospheric track! Felt the oh-oh-oh-motif got slightly old with time though - I think letting that same motif start on a different degree, say subtonic or supertonic would lended a sense of progression and, albeit slight, thematic exploration to the track.

The percussion is subtle, but very nicely so. Gives dimension and space to the whole track. Felt the attack on the violin was somewhat troublesome which sadly took away from what otherwise was a beautiful and tranquil violin solo - possibly I thought it could've been just a little bit louder to let it really soar!

Breathtaking.

I need to regularly check in on your stuff.

This is a phenominal piece, simply put. Powerful, yet soft, it's a special piece that conjures up a lot of emotion. There are many strong mental images it's planting in my head; from a burning Medieval village, to an outcast angel falling from the sky.

Really stellar job on this one.

Special kind of song.

This is the kind of song I can listen on looping mode for a really long time, and never get tired. I love your work, good man. Keep it up!
