This production took me a while to produced. I carefully mapped out what I was

going to do, and started adding instruments to this song like putting a puzzle together.

I worked on this song day and night adding and taking away instruments daily.

When I was finished, I had 36 instruments playing at the same time.

Once I had the music the way I liked it, then came the nightmare of mixing all of these instruments.

I had to think like a conductor and an audience member at the same time.

Where should I pan the flute players, or the trombone players? How loud should be the chorus?

So I started picturing a 36 piece orchestra and placing them in the mix like an artist putting paint on a canvas.

This my friend was very tedious to say the least, but well worth it. I believe I could have mixed the song

a little better than I did, but do to time and the lack of it, I think I did a pretty good job.

The song title is how I felt about going back to my roots. I love producing all kinds of music, but

classical music is my bread and butter, and if you are going to join a contest, I've learned you need to stick with what

you are somewhat good at. So I felt I needed to redeem myself and go back to what music I'm used to producing.

I hope everyone enjoys this piece of music and good luck to all the very talented musicians in this wonderful contest!

I also find mixing orchestral stuff a nightmare but I never get it sounding as clean as you do here - really good job on the mix imo.

Stand-out part for me was when the percussion & choir come in from ~2:40 on. This is as good as a lot of stuff you'd hear in movies these days, nice work!

Thank you so much I really appreciate it. I really worked hard on the mixing I still think I could of done a better job, but thank you for saying that it means a lot to me.

This is something straight out of a movie. The instruments sounds live, like a real orchestra, what an amazing job. It's a very beautiful composition! I love it 😍

Bro this is fire!! A mix with game of thrones lord of the rings and marvel! Awesome job this was well produced!! Good luck bro!;
