Ancient City Valialur

Author Comments

On a secluded floating island hidden away with barrier magic, lies an empty, beautiful ancient city partially in rubble.

In the middle of the city is a giant stone monument, which opens a path to an underground crypt.

On the walls in the crypt, is a legendary tale of 6 incredible warriors that once, centuries ago, sacrificed their lives and nearly lost a massive battle that miraculously ended up saving the entirety of Cuintha.

The story of these legends never reached the masses outside of the ancient city, until now, found by an explorer purely by mistake as he had taken to the skies in his airship and happened to crash into an invisible wall, that crushed and revealed the beautiful yet desolate place.

i liek <3

DanJohansen responds:


I believe the description you provided was excellent and fit what I anticipated for the name. Very well done. It is composed nicely, the volume is perfect, and the use of... I think that is a pan flute around 1:35 is *chef's kiss*. It is a wonderful touch.

Please, keep making music-- I loved the Gregorian chant used throughout. Keep this component. It isn't used enough.

DanJohansen responds:

Appreciate the great review, I've always wanted to compose more with flutes. Glad you enjoyed the description as well :)

Haha made me feel like I got transported a couple of thousand years ago in the shoes of my ancestors. Sounds amazing! You really hit the point with this. Did you use real voices or realistic synths for the vocals in the harmony? I find that in my music, the voices can't say actual words or grunts.

DanJohansen responds:

Thanks! I use real voices, but they are sampled into midi. there are a lot of crazy good voice VST's out there right now!
