(WF1) Shaolin Temple 1.0

Author Comments

A temple of monks sit around a fire meditating to music. Looking up you see the bluest sky you've ever seen in your life.. The living here seems so perfect, silent, relaxing.. The smell of rice is distant in the air. Through all the problems in life you know this is a safe haven..

A short song with a simple beat.. Thought i'd stick with the oriental flow for this track. Feel free to use it in flash works. =) Please rate/review.

Would make a better loop.

The fadeout at the end just sorta ruins it for me given its only a minuet long.

Still, very nice beat and fits the theme.

I've faded it out because i'm actually gonna make this puppy a song i just gotta figure out what i wanna do with it. hah

I haven't reviewed this?

Wtf? Was sure I had reviewed this. Damn. Anyways, Cool track, you've got 52 reviews already telling you stuff about it, but I'll add my thoughts. I'd like to hear that light snare or clap or whatever it is echoing just like that hat or whatever the supporting perc is.

Love the instrumentation and melody

glad you like it man


A movie about a shaolin master training in the yard of a large temple, some peach trees in the background (just like in Kung-Fu Panda lol)so you have peach flower petals dancing in the wind and some monks humming and shaolins beating into large drums. The song is calming and majestic, but without the humming it's not...complete.

wyldfyre1 responds:

hehe should listen to the newest version of the song =). It actually does have some humming and then some heh.


Very awesome! A really nice calm oriental feel here. However it didn't feel like a Shaolin temple...it seemed more like a garden. Now im particulary more critical then most people over oriental music cause i live here in China =P.

If you want it to seem like a temple it needs to be more spiritual/darkish. You are on the right track but you need the odd clanging noise from a monk hitting a prayer metal plate. Also maybe a gong could add lots of effect.

MONKS HUMMING!!! If you could find a soundfont or some sound clip of monks humming really low and chanting that would add a TON of feeling to the Shaolin Temple theme.


Really good song i just feel the most important part about temples is the monks and Shaolin Temple is FULL of them. (Iv never actually been to THE Shaolin temple but i have been to many similar ones)

(Let me know if you make a "Shaolin Temple 1.5" =D)

wyldfyre1 responds:

i thought about the humming haha. yeah i've seen pictures and havea friend that lives in China myself that told me that it would work so its why i went with the name hah. I see what you mean. Yeah, when i update this song i'll deffenatly tell you man! Thanks as always for the review!!!


You pull off that Asian sound really well. Makes me feel all warm and nostalgic for some reason. :D I really wish this was longer but it's still awesome as it is. Keep up with these great songs!

wyldfyre1 responds:

i'm gonna do my best to make this longer when i get the time! Many thanks for the review!
