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!!!

It's a nice song, with the feeling of discovery to it, then it transitions into an epic old-time quest background theme, and finally back to "discovery"

5/5 :)

5/5
10/10
around 3:20 that melody reminded me of the first Naruto series with the whole ninja stuff going on haha. It also then has the flavor of kung fu panda "ninja flavored" has well haha..also has a jungle feel to it. All in all great work.
Beautiful Composition!!!
