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.

Enjoy

Da Da Du Da

This song is awesome. It sounds like an electronica-version of some slow acoustic ballads I've heard. It kind of reminded me of Super Mario 64 a the beginning, like RadioactiveRhino. Overall, really good.

Awesome!

Your best piece yet!
So much emotion, so many layers, I just wanna lie down in a hammock and listen.
I wish we owned a hammock...
Randomly, the beginning reminded me of one of the Super Mario 64 levels....(yes, that's a good thing)


Buoy responds:

I don't have a hammock either... FUCK D:<

Thanks for the review!


nice

it wasnt as ambient as the other tracks you've made, but it was pretty good. I think it needed a little bit more ambience and flow, but it was still decent.

could you check out my newest demo?


Buoy responds:

Thanks for the review! I'll check it out ;)


Hah...

You and your pretty scenery-oriented themes. Very peculiar style, if I may add. Always good as usual, mate. I wouldn't exactly say it's sub par to your other music since, despite the similar sounds, they're all fairly different songs. I love your instrument selection too, it's very unique IMO. Just one inquiry, at what tempo is this song written? I'm saying around the 60's as a wild guess, but I'm sure I'm a bit off :P Congrats on modship by the way. I demand that "unbelievable amount of love" >:D

5'd; 4.14 ---> 4.17, I'm surprised it hit as low as 2.64 at one point. Gotta love those 0 bombers.


Buoy responds:

My "very peculiar style" is probably based on the same things- the ├╝ber reverbed, heavy drum kit and how it's all based on repeating chord progressions- that stay dominant in a lot of my songs. Yer right :D

It's 75BPM by the way ;)

Yeah, take my heart, run along the green fields of the golden past times with it, all that fantastic idyllic shit. <3
