- TRACK #3 OF 50 -
50 Songs / 90 Days Challenge

[UPDATE: I've decided I actually dislike this song. I'm only leaving it up because it's part of my 50 songs challenge, and I'm learning from it. But I may or may not remove this song, since I've realized it's really not that good at all.]

An epic orchestral piece. It reflects the need for purpose in our lives, and the unremitting dedication to such a purpose. I hope it inspires you to achieve great things!

This one is much more straight-up film-score style than my usual offerings. As in, less classical influence.

Composing this was kind of funny actually. I spent the past 3 weeks trying extremely hard to get some music out for the 50 songs-90 days challenge with no luck, even returning to many pieces time and time again to try and finish them. THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN I sit down tonight, spend about 7 hours in front of my computer, and BAM finish this full song without any prior planning.

Inspiration is funny that way.

Enjoy the song and let me know what you think! Honesty appreciated, no matter what it consists of.

NOTE: I only put the cool brackets around the title because "Purpose" was a title already in use.

Have you gone mad?

This is one of those pieces that is used in a film when a hero realizes they have a purpose and if you can create things like this you clearly have a monumental one.
P.S. if you don't know this or don't believe what i said maybe you even think i am the one who has gone mad soon you,ll see i have not.... soon you,ll see what I mean.

Awesome Song!

Great song! Amazingly composed and very well done overall! 10/10!

You have bad taste.

That's really all I can figure, because this is a good piece. No. A REALLY good piece.

I think you've got real talent, and I hope hope hope that you do go somewhere with it, because that's something the music industry really needs.

This piece is great, it feels like something out of Warcraft. Particularly after 2:05. It just is EPIC. That word is used too much these days, but it really has that legendary feel.

I can't believe I missed this review.

Thanks a ton for the kind words! I like some of the ideas here but I just feel I could have performed better in the execution and flow. Your words are reassuring though, so many thanks, and I'm glad you enjoyed it!

Awesome. Played Mass Effect?

Half of the song (the beginning and around halfway through) sounds exactly like some of the epic songs in Mass Effect. That isn't a bad thing, it sounds great.

Definitely had that cinematic feel to it; it took me on a journey.

Wish I could be this good at something... I'm told I'm good at programming, but I can't get myself to work on anything. Loved the song.

NickPerrin responds:

Thanks for the review, glad you liked it. No, I haven't played Mass Effect yet, but a buddy of mine keeps insisting that I play it... I look forward to hearing the score in that game!

this is really great.

youve done a really nice job. its hard to get sounds this full with most orchestral simulation vsts. what vst did you use? assuming you DID in fact use one. i know there are other programs and sequencers that deal strictly with orchestral composition.
