As I sat outside today, watching the wind, I was hit with sudden inspiration. This song is what came from that moment of inspiration.

haunting, pensive beauty

you really captured some of the moods and essences that clint mansell puts into his music and also filled it with heart and soul. i can't get enough of this song; it's been on repeat for the last hour.

amazing work, truly amazing. please keep making music!

Thank you kindly!

Feel Emotions...

We feel all of your Emotions in your Music.
You're a God of classical Music !

Tamadrum responds:

Thanks! I always try to convey something with music... Because I am mostly unable to otherwise.

A god, I think not... Rachmaninoff was a god of Classical music... I am certainly improving though.


This song...has so much feelings, I think. I think it shows struggles, victories, and achievements. This song is beautiful and you deserve awards for this!

Tamadrum responds:

Thanks so much for such kind words man!


If Plato was still alive, he'd want to listen to music like this all day, because it has a thought-provoking beauty within it very much sought after by all philosophers -- the real kind, mind you.

If the Fallout series wasn't so keen on cheesy humor, its theme song would have probably sounded like this. As jeanniewood imaged, a world of hope within a world already destroyed once -- just what coming out of a nuclear vault is all about.

I like how around 2:02 it starts to seem like things want to go faster, but they're held back by something, kept in check, and the music continues progress at its own pace, holding back anything that might try to go too fast too soon. Going at the pace of life. Beautiful stories told through beautiful music. Thanks for allowing us to hear this.

Tamadrum responds:

The Fallout series isn't one I'm familiar with... I believe I should check it out sometime. The Plato comparison I would like to thank you very much for, as I myself like to ponder at the whims of life on occasion... :)


Wow, that was amazing. My type of music, definitely. What program did you use to compose it? Just wondering. Keep it up!

Tamadrum responds:

Thanks for the complement Xoroux, I used The Fruity Loops demo for this... I'm just a bum working with free software. lol.
