A serene, gentle piece, A soft tingling mist. Let it soothe your mind
I'm writing this review on the fly :P
So far, I'm blown away.
This is just incredible, truly commercial quality music.
All the instruments and notes hit exactly the right spot.
Damn, it's over now. Should have been longer.
Anyway, really epic stuff. A definite bonus for any game.
Keep up the incredible work.
I'm glad you liked it ^^. To be honest, I make alot of these tracks relatively short so that if any flash artist wants to use them, it won't be impossible to do so. It's a common fact any file larger then 2.5 or so megs will generally be ignored due to their size. However soon I want to start submitting a few tracks that are meant purely for listening, and those will be a good deal longer.
I will try to keep bringing good stuff, thank you for the revie w^^.
Very nice. When I saw your title you reminded me of MaestrowSorrow, a fellow classical maker such as yourself. When I then heard the piece I felt compelled to write a review. The piece starts out very slowly like the beginning of a story. Then it slowly transends into something more powerful and grand. A story comes into my mind. A young man starts out on a journey and when he returns he is not the same as he left. He learned loss, gain, fellowship, and love. He is now a man. Keep up the good work...
A great story Zen, i've always found them to be inspiring. You are right of course, this could very well be a song of maturity, of passing troubles, and experiences. I am quite surprised how this song seems to tell stories of great amounts of time passing throughout it's duration. Most of the songs I submit have only one moment, crystalized and focused on to a great extent.
I am glad that it does bring up so many different stories, I enjoy reading and living through each and every one of them.
Thanks for your review Zen ^^.
Also, if I am not mistaken you also said that you wanted to make some music as well. Will you be making and submitting soon? I would really like to hear what you are capable of.
Epic. That's the word I think I can use to describe both the pieces i'v listened to of yours so far.
I can see both of these clearly in some epic such as Lord of the Rings; or similar.
My friend: have you ever considered or been offered to work on a game/flash? If not; you are most definately now prepared.
As I sit here infront of a small screen typing this up with nothing interesting going around me a vast story unravels in my mind like a coiled up snake slowly slithering away.
Like dawn; coming up for the first time in my mind today... slowly rising. Coming up... reaching into my mind with it's light rays swallowing up reality and in it's place bringing in visions of wonder.
The strings starting around 0:22 are truly... stirring.
0:40... it's coming up more. Going higher. Lighting up the whole entire world. Then around 0:56 I believe (too lazy... guessed) It's at it's peak. The whole world is alive and wondorous.
Children play in the fields, and farmers and such go about their daily lives. Sweating under the heat of the magnificient sun. And then finally... the day ends... the Sun starts to set.
It goes down slowly, as the visions leave and before it dies off; It leaves you with a magnificent sunset full of purple and orange and red; as if to say...
I'll be back tomorrow.
My heart is fluttering.
How interesting. You know, I actually listened to this from atop the CN tower, a very tall building (apparently the tallest in the world now), and as I gazed out amongst the lake and islands I turned on this song, and the effect on me was shaking, and quite strange.
So to this story, I can actually relate. Save instead of farmers, I saw pick up trucks, and boats. Not as magnificent as this image, but still a fine one. Thanks for the review and support.
Hmmm - Well I'm sure you want to hear another story. :P But I'm going to give you one, that just inspired me to write a little story on it, because of this song.
SCENERY : JAPAN 1200's
A Mother gives birth to a son. The Son is perfectly healthy, except the Mother, from trauma, has died. The Father now holds the Son in his arms, looks at his Son, and then out to the night sky. *Future Scene* The Father starts teaching his Son swordsmanship and horsemanship. *Future Scene* An allied neighboring village, with family members, has been attacked by a feudal lord - and Father and Son ride off in the sunset to ressurect the occupied settlement.
A whole lifetime in the span of a paragraph. Another interesting story, and once again, completely different from the one I used to create this piece. It is incredible to me, to hear so many different possible stories from one song. Thank you for sharing your story, it was appreciated.
Thanks again for the review.
Let me tell you a story...
Clouds roll over the land, the day is dark. The fabled heroes have triumphed over their foe, but all is not well. They have fallen as well. The people fear what is to come next without their heroes. Memorials and candlelight vigils are held in memory to the fallen, but time must move on.
The clouds begin to slide away slowly, moving with the breeze. The wind feeling like soothing, caressing hands upon the people's faces. The clouds shift away to reveal the sun, warming the land. But darkness lies near, waiting in the most vile of places.
That's what I see with this piece. Another well done piece from the Maestro. Keep up the good work.

An interesting story, one that I wasn't imagining myself, but one that I can see easily fitting. To be honest, I went too far with your story and did something I didn't do for a long time.
I gave the characters in that story names, personality, and a life.
To watch them die, and to watch their eyes dull, with a glint of sorrow. It was quite an image.
Thank you for the story and the review, both were warmly appreciated.
