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.



you like mountains

this, like all your submissions is really good.

interesting melodies as usual, I personally think it might have been a bit lacking this time around- but you know, i've come to have very high expectations from you ;) The instrumentation is pretty damn sweet tho, the rhodes and lead sounds in combination quite well, backed excellently by the drifting choir. Love the use of reverb in this track, deep drums makes it sound like a mountain indeed. Interlude with the sliding flute solos is great- maybe since it's nature based it wouldnt hear to some tribal based instruments like some mallet percussion and a pan flute as well? doesnt matter, the instruments you use work for your style. Love the nice floating keys and the leadup to the main part in the end.

very chill one SBB!

Heh heh, so I didn't get your angry faic of disapproval? I was kinda worried when I saw your comment in my main news post ;D

Thanks for the another review, my beloved and awesome chord. <3

The hell is up with the score...

People are so under appreciative, this is pure awsome! it is sub par to the rest of your work yes but that is like comparing a sports car to a fucking rocket ship! there both awsome and deserve a score way better then this,

i LOVE the melody, very smooth yet it stands out at the same time, very neat. i LOVE the drums also, the ride adds a lot to the over all feel and is well done,
5/5 10/10

Buoy responds:

ahaha it even went down to 2.64 once :P probably the heaviest 0bombage I've experienced

Thanks for the review man! I'll have you reviewt back soon.


Nice and relaxing song. Great tune. Sounds a bit "mysterious".

Buoy responds:

Thank you my good sir.



Aw man, I really like this song.
This would go great with a video game title screen or something.
I think the three weeks you spent on this project was well worth your time.

Buoy responds:

Thanks man! For reviewing it the same minute as it was submitted ;)
