This is excellent. This is the sorrows of the Samurai.


I envision a lone warrior...his comrades fallen, and the scent of blood in the air as he scale a mountain, and looks at the sunset...just one last time...and with the knowledge he fought valiantly, he too falls, just like the comrades before him...but one difference: he dies serenely (If that's in the right context). Great job! Listening to this piece makes me feel somewhat at ease, and it sounds wonderful. Keep up the good work!

So, personally, if you wish you ever put vocals into this, i wouldn't mind doing it for you.
You seam to need a haunting sound for this, and I apparently have a haunting voice, or can make my voice go haunting. Personally, I think you need a reed flute to kind of soar over all these melodyies that you add to this. I really like it, but I;d love to hear that breathy sort of panpipelike sound. Its really well done, but I don't think the stops in the middle, before you repickup the melody are very becoming of the piece. I love the mellow tones in it though. Makes me really think of a garden. Well done.

SolusLunes responds:

Hmm... willing to put a voice to this?

I'd definitely want to hear this :D


Great job. Made me feel like I had just resolved something important and am now at peace with the world, sitting on the zenith of the world basking in its beauty. Also clouds, something to do with clouds.

SolusLunes responds:

Nice image, I'm thinking of someone at the top of a mountain. :D

i think i might no whats missing

i think this song needs vocals i swear if vocals were aadded this would be an epic/auraslash awesome song but i think you can do good if you try hard enough

SolusLunes responds:

See, but the thing is, I'm the shittiest singer ever.

Also, I would need an idea for vocals.
