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.

Yoshi's Island anyone?

Lmao, this tune so much reminds me of it. Some cave stage or something. That one synth pattern reminds of it soo damn much. Anyways, this is a very relaxing tune, though...I have to agree with some of Bezman's pointers. Mainly the drums are too "far" away in my opinion. Of course, it's always a matter of taste there but it really is something that personally bugs me in this tune. Other than that you've managed to create a sad, yet relaxing mood in this piece.

I really like the outcome of this, so I tap my 5 on it none the less, even the fact that you will phail always. ;)

Lator, ya looser!

Buoy responds:

I don't hear the yoshi's island pattern where is it :(

Thanks for the review I'll try to phail harder next time.

More 'realistic' instruments please.

You are obviously a master at utilising these programs and the way you flow the melody through a bunch of variations, returning to the basic theme but changing it up and all the complementing countermelodies, rhythms and beats is wonderful.

My only criticism is that the main instruments sound a little too 'retro techno'ish for my liking. I'd personally have liked to hear this with more realistic instruments, but that's my personal preference.

Sitting on a mountain top, a lone figure watches the morning stars twinkle and fade out of sight. As the beats begin, the crack of sunlight appears, opens wider and the light rolls over the forests and ocean, revealing the vista before the silhouetted figure. Birds awake and fly into the morning sky. A ship moves towards a distant island.

After watching this, the figure picks up his bags and carries onwards on his journey. Walking down through the forest, the bugs appear, slivers of light on their bodies.

The sun is now high in the sky and a ship moves through the rolling waves. Fish jump out the water and the wind blows on the sails.

After a long journey, the lone figure arrives at a strange scene - caves high in a clifftop, accessible by ladders. Climbing up, he finds a single note weighed down with a rock - "catch me if you can".

He moves back through stalactites and stalagmites, peers through the mouth of the cave and sees the sun disappear. Tomorrow holds more adventure.

Yay! Another Bezman story!! :D, <3, and more ice cream cones.

Retro Techno huh? Well I doubt I'll change much of it. I could replace the synths with their "real" counterparts, but I won't- that'll take way too much time. :P

Thanks for the review!
