Samuel Barber wrote a piece of beautiful orchestral music called "Adagio for Strings," and I hope my song captures a few of the same feelings in this different, electronic medium. When I listen to that piece, I feel like I'm trying desperately to reach unattainable heights; there's a persistent climb of notes... Anyway, there's only one part in this song that I've submitted where I really try to use Barber's melody, somewhere near the middle, where the melody repeats twice in a row. But even then, if you're familiar with the original, you might not even have caught it unless I told you about it, because I change up the rhythm of the melody.

And yes, I know the end is a bit cheesy. If I feel like it I might change it, but then I also kind of like it. Barber's song may not have ended with such a "nice" resolution, but we can attain the heights that he led us to, or something.

I used FL Studio Pro to craft the song, and I haven't added really any effects to the song as a whole, which might be something to increase the ambience. Let me know what you think!
