Comments:
---- So here I am again after a long absence from Newgrounds. I've decided to return with a bang and as a result, I'm uploading a song which I believe is honestly one of my best tracks, and also the one which I worked hardest and longest on.

This track will serve 2 purposes, It will first and foremost serve as my submission to the Orchestral MAC 2012, hosted by BrokenDeck. It's a pretty large competition with some of the greatest names on Newgrounds regards Orchestral music (such as PeterSatera, Bosa, Supersteph54, samulis, etc), so I doubt I'll make it that far, but I can honestly say I gave it my all.

The song's second purpose will be as the Title track of my new album (Eye of the Dragon) which I will be uploading on my Bandcamp Account (erikscerri.bandcamp.com)
. I am uploading this Title track on Newgrounds as a preview of this album, which will be available soon.

Regards the song's production, this track is a result of 41 hours, 38 minutes of work. It is also my longest track to date, and definitely my most detailed. I spent a lot of time humanizing, desyncing, harmonizing and EQing to attain as much perfection as I could. I know quality isn't such a high factor in this MAC, but I still tried to give as much realism as I could.

Regards instruments and orchestration, I used: violins, violas, cellos, double basses, flutes, oboes, clarinets, bassoons, french horns, trumpets, trombones, tubas, harp, piano, alto singers, bass singers, tenor singers, 2 solo singers, a range of percussions (cymbals, timpanis, godzilla hits, djembe, etc), koto, accoustic guitar, xiao, dizi, electric bass, clean electric guitar, glockenspiel and probably some others which I'm forgetting.

As for credits, I can't list all the people who helped me with this here, because I'd never finish, but I'd primarily like to thank Supersteph54 for giving me a shit-tonne of criticism and tips and Logical-Defiance for his help.

So that's it I guess. 267 Patterns, 128 Automations, 67 Play Instances, 164 Bars and 41 hours of work spread over 2 months. I sure hope you enjoy listening to this as much as I enjoyed making it. Feedback is very much appreciated!

Enjoy!!!

The style and melody really remind me of the Kung Fu Panda 2 soundtrack.

I've been listening to you for awhile now Echo and I will tell you this.
Every song you release is a new adventure for me.
If I want to go on a mental journey to a far away place, I listen to your songs of which I have on my Ipod, in their own playlist.

Keep creating magic Echo, the world needs more people like you in it.

Wow this is awesome. i listen to alot of soundtrack pieces...two steps from hell, Denny schneidemesser and a whole lot of various other pieces. im usally down here on NG searching in a database where 1/50 is crap(sorry other users) but this is something else.
Still i dont feel it reeaches so far as other major orchesta's it does get close to them. Maybe- its because the bitrate? i do download all in at least 256kps. i dont know if thats the reason that it just sounds a bit....less, but it has a good melody and good use of instruments...maybe it could require some more drama like trompets in it.

for a job of 41 hours you made a really really fine piece of musical art, my compliments.

Echo responds:
