Well first off, this is NOT my submission to MAC:July, and will not be entering it as an update to Michael's Theme. I don't that it would be fair to submit something, call it a final and then take it back for a different one. Also, I submitted this one under ambient rather than classical; to me its more of a new age relaxation piece than anything.

This one has a bit of a backstory to it too, but I'll leave it up to the listener to make up their own scenario :-D

Sooo please review, and most of all

Uplifting as usual.

I listen through the whole song. Piano and string (and maybe choir too) blend together quite well. The stormy part has power with the minor key. The only flaw is the treble which happens in the middle of the song, that's all. :)

I closed my eyes, I shook my head, I startled, and I smiled.

What a powerful and moving piece.

Great instrumentation and melody. I loved the move from Major to minor and then at the end, back to Major like a ray of hope has appeared once again.

It's like a captain sailing his ship through beautiful seas enjoying the sailing life when suddenly a storm approaches and leaves him stranded on an island paradise. Suddenly he discovers an old friend that had been stranded there long before and rekindles his friendship. Finally the both of them see a ship in the distance coming toward them, giving them a ray of hope.

Anyway, great great work on this song. I really enjoyed listening to it. Made my day. Keep up the creativity!


Captain's theme

Wow, you really expanded on this piece. The second part you added really changed the mood (I feel like this captain is shipwrecked on an island). Also, the ending really kinda gave hope to the feel of the piece. The whole time it was rather sad and towards the end it was like the clouds opened up for the sun to peek through a bit.

A really love the additions you have hear. You didn't make it too long but you lengthened it enough and ended it for a fitting theme. I'm not sure about the first thunder strike, although as I listened through for a second time, I warmed up to it a bit. Might just be me though.

You really paint a picture of a character that is in some rough waters (heh...heh...) and I can really imagine the sort of person this guy is and how his luck takes a turn for the worst but in the end, hope shines through.

You really finished this one out and I wish you could submit this one because it is awesome and I think it would do very, very well in the competition. I'd say ask maestro, darkside, or rufio if you can submit it since you technically updated it.

Anyhow, nice job on the song, it's going on the fav's and hopefully you'll find it in yourself to ask about submitting it as an update. I don't think it'd be unfair.
