***Listen to this song with volume up, low volume will not cut it***

If falling was beautiful, a wonderfully cherished art,
It would sound like this.
I imagine myself falling towards a snowy ground, never hitting the earth, but floating in the air while feeling the effects of falling. I am falling; will I ever come down? Or do I need to go up? Am I falling away, or did I start by falling up? I am so confused...

UPDATE: was working all along; enjoy the new synth and ambient FX :D

btw, I guess all that random stuff I typed is now void, lol. Imagine flying over the ground and falling upward against the rain, and you'll understand. At the end, you hit space and die maybe? lol, that's morbid....enjoy :D

This was another one of those that could have been longer because it was just too short and has a nice vibe about it but just too short and I think adding some build up would also be nice just an idea I'm sending your way because this was actually pretty good

Could be longer


This is a beautiful piece; calm and relaxing and it feels sad, somewhat.
I just wanted to ask if it would be alright to use this in an RPG game I'm making. It's not a huge thing, just a small project of mine. I'd credit you on the music and such. Thanks~

Reminds me of flower...

Great song, it just really reminded me of the PSN game flower with the ambient FX and the piano notes, but the quickness in pace and the the change of key, particluarly at the end felt like a less appropriate choice. The beginning few seconds (in my opinion) were spot-on though.

I liked the abrupt key change at the end, but I admit it doesn't flow well. Thank for the review :D



There is a lot of ups and downs in this track.

+Really like the melody and nature sounding atmosphere in the beginning, sounds very promising
+Overall great ambience in here. I love the accompaniment parts and interesting pads, the backing was very nice. The choral parts progressed quite well.
-The piano line after the intro was pretty formless. The melody is a bit directionless, and has a pretty bland rhythm :S
-The sudden key change - I understand your morbid idea, but it just felt to abrupt and rough. The synths in the background where progressing really nice, and then this weird part comes in like BANG! I personally dont understand it, doesnt feel very fitting in here :S
-If you used a more authentic piano sound than FL keys it would do you wonders :P

ImperfectDisciple responds:

-The change of pace was meant to be rough, I have no comment on that.
-If I wasn't lazy, I'd find a piano sound :P

-Thanks for the review!



I really like this, reminds me a little of the score from American Beauty.
Good job!

ImperfectDisciple responds:

I'll have to google that, lol. Thank you for the review!
