The Lonely Hermit
- A Piece inspired by AtTheSpeedOf's "Fantasy LandScape
http://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/llamareaper/fantasy-landscape-2

-------------------------------------------
So here's my submission for this years Art Inspired Music Contest. I tried to tell a very concrete story when making this, and I hope you that listen to it are able to get a glimpse of it.
---------------------------------------------
"Why in the world is an EDM producer uploading an orchestral piece", is probably what y'all are thinking right now. Frankly I have no idea how I ended up making this piece myself. Just saw the Art by AtTheSpeedOf, and couldn't find a better way to portray it. This is my first time making an non-electronic song, but I hope it wont be the last.

---------------------------------------------------------
This was made mostly by using free Kontakt instruments I found in the "Free Kontakt Libraries" thread. Only exceptions are the flutes (Orange Samples Mesawinds). That's why the instruments aren't of an AMAZING quality, but I think they sound pretty good for what they cost.
The audio samples are just a bunch of different samples from my collection that I put together, so sorry if there's a mismatch here and there.
---------------------------------------------------------------

Hope you guyz enjoy it :).

-----------------------------------------

Free Libraries used:
- Angry Brass
- DIY Philharmonic Orchestra Samples
- Agiato Grandiose Violins
- Victorian Music Box
- Ivy Audio Clare
- Total Composure Orchestra
- Pocket Blackus Cello
- Cornucopia Stacatto Strings
And as said earlier I also used MesaWinds by OrangeSamples for the flutes.

Wow I'm glad that list of free kontakt libs from Peter's thread does justice, that free instruments don't mean bad music. Excellent track, well deserved first place. Awesome work. :)

Kudos to you and Peter. Used to think it was impossible to make orchestral music without spending 1000s of dollars before that thread came along.
Really glad you enjoyed it :D.

I actually think I prefer this to your usual vein of work. It shows a sensitivity and freedom of expression rarely seen. ASMR elements make for an unusual exploration of sound, which I feel very much represents a story. I will say that the eating bit absolutely annoyed the SHIT out of me as a misophone who normally listens to music at obscenely loud volumes in order to ignore eating noises -- eating noises which were currently going on around me. Subtracting half a star as I was supremely disturbed by that part. Very good piece, though. Thoroughly enjoyed.

Dunno if I'll be able to make something, but I certainly hope so :D.

It really gets interesting at 20 seconds in when you use those strings as a pedal point while the harp has that motif. Good "setting the stage" kind of piece with a nice sense of intrigue. It's a bit more ambient in the cinematic way as well. Sometimes a bit too sparse at moments for my liking, but the overall theme is enjoyable.

Very nice, but at the beginning it kind of rings in the mids a little too much with the strings. Other than that, this shows a lot of depth with atmosphere, I love the sounds. It brings a great atmosphere, and reflects the picture greatly, bringing it to life. It sounds more like a movie score with the sounds, or for an animation. It's very ASMR material. Very interesting.

This is very impressive, and different. I love it. I love the transitions too. Amazing job!

Wow, thanks :D. Really glad you felt that it brought the picture life :D. Tried to make it like a continuation of the art where the character walks around the landscape and it begins to rain from the dark clouds over the mountain.
Get what you said about the strings. I'll try to lower some of them a bit.
Thanks for the review :).
