--EXTENDED VERSION OF NG NAC2012 ORCHESTRAL CONTEST 1ST PLACE WINNER--
This piece was always meant to be this long, more developed, more climactic. The orchestral contest that just wrapped up here on NG had a time length limit on its entries, so I only wrote it up to just over 5 minutes for the contest. After winning, I was motivated to finish the piece to its full length that I had originally conceptualized, with a proper ending.
I also tweaked many things, most importantly managing the dynamic range to pump up the overall volume a little bit compared to the original track.
