Take a rest in the night after climbing the highest mountain, watch the distant oceans and continents you still have to cross


First off, I made the rhodes' note progression you hear in the beginning and end of the song quite a while ago. I saved those four bars in case I could use it for another project- and 3 weeks ago, I could continue it. Finally had the inspiration to continue those four bars- and this song is what grew onto it. It was a pretty heavy project file (15 instrument channels, 35+ fx devices), so mixing it was a hell. Made with Reason and Logic rewired. 3 weeks spent on this.


So this songs has some interesting main instruments: Deep rhodes, powerful, huge drums, weeping lead, soaring flute, ethereal choir, subtle bass and a very emotional plucky synth.

Kicks off around 0:27. Sounds best when played loudly.




Out of words epic.


sad melodybell music, a little girl, in a black room, the only light emenating from a music box she holds in her hands - when suddenly the room explodes with images and colours that swirl and coesce from the musicbox itself and take the girl on a magical journey, through mystical forests with tall trees and curled ferms.. and far up into the mountains.. the cold snowey swept peaks, and into the dark starlit night .. no a cloud in the sky.. .just a blanket of stars, an ocean of infinity.. with breathtaking speed you swirl and dance above the peaks - the moon giving everything a slightly bluish black tint, the snow on the moundains a pale blue skeen, and there in front of you.. a castle in the sky.. floating in the sea of stars - half illuminated by the full moon - as you drift towards it it all befins to evaporate, like dissipating fog, and you open your eyes, and look down , and the music box, still brightly illuminated, has reached the end and has stopped.

Unspeakable, but worth a thousand words.

This is simply amazing, I was swept away and left to drift in the distant oceans. Drifting off, nothing but a wide expanse of blue. Never washing to shore, just left to drift, for eternity.

The whole thing is amazing, I really felt like I was drifting in the distant oceans.
