Morning - The Rise of the Sun

My friend told me that I didn't make any "fun" music... If you have noticed, all of my other music are like.... kinda slow and saddish... Well, now I made one that's kinda upbeat.

When I made this song, I had a picture of the sunrise... then followed by morning critters doing their own business.

Soo, the beginning is slow (like the rising sun) then goes happy-ish...

Lovely use of strings.
The picture I got at first was this vigilant watchdog wearily patrolling against the backdrop of the rising sun.
1:18 onwards reminded me of mischievous mice scurrying about the barnyard.
For some streange reason I can't get farms out of my head when I listen to this.
Anyway, great piece, maybe needs piano or some percussion.
On the whole it was a pleasant listen!


A good rise.

If I could use this in a flash, I definitely would! There are some great parts to this song that I just fell in love with. It's overall very beautiful, and I agree with Sinjim.
the pizzicato was great and sounded very real; I could see this in a carefree moment of flying, or ..rising, in any good motion picture.

Hahaha, thanks. It's an honor to hear that my song is worthy of a motion picture!


This reminds me of an opening to a fantasy movie or final fantasy game. Like where the screen starts panning over the land or city (your rise) and then it gets into the daily life kind of stuff (your happy part). In specifically it reminds me of the music from FFXII.

Anyways that's sort of just what I thought.

About the song in particular, great work with the software strings, it's pretty hard to get them to sound real and I think you did an excellent job. I also really liked when the flute came in and how the strings went to pizzicato (I think that's the right word there). Really got a happy feeling across. All in all, nice job (although I wanted it a little longer). 5/5 10/10, fav'd.

Wow... probably the best critic ever! Thanks, it's these kinds of comments that keeps me going!
