The Lone Mourner

EDIT: I made this slightly longer, let me know what you think! It's not going to be a loop anymore, by the way.

This song is about a young man slowly walking through a battlefield, tears streaming down his face. He sees many friends and strangers, lying motionless on the bloodstained grass. He kneels at each one, saying a prayer and touching his hand to his heart to pay his respects. There is no one else there... he is the lone mourner. And he knows that his time on this earth is slowly ticking away as well...

Enjoy, even if it's short!


You See Battlefield - I See Something Else

The rich old miser sitting upon the leather chair. A fire in front of him. For mirrors show the truth, they do not speak like a fire does. A painting hung above the fire showing the glory he has set, a painting of himself. As he sits there with the clock ticking slowly, he notices he is indeed old of age and the only thing he has ever done with his life was make money for himself. With all the money he has earned he isn't happy. Goals were set and accomplished, but what was in the middle? Memories of good time? If you count counting money... then yes.

Um... could you please continue this further? It appears that I cannot end my story. Your song seems incompleted not short. It has many aspects that I like and I'm sure you probably noticed which ones reading through my story. All I ask is that you finish this song so I may finish my review as well as my story.

A very nice scene, matches better than mine! I never really liked my story, because pretty much everyone uses battles and death. Yours is so much different, and it provides a more unique view. I'll certainly finish this song, sometime.

Thanks for the review!

So sad :'(

It sounds really great, but it's too short.

I liked that wind effect in the beginning and that clock sound. Maybe you could have included even more sound effects, like footsteps and someone mumbling a prayer.

Anyway, the violins sounded great by themselves, but the piano really adds something when it starts. The atmosphere is just superb. Great work!

Btw, it does loop quite good, but not perfectly (in case you didn't notice :] ).

Hooray for reviews!

Yeah, I do agree this could use quite a few more effects. I'm going to find some footstep sounds as soon as the site I use for that stuff gets over it's problems. I'll also try to record some of my own vocals to play in the background. My mic is pretty cheap, so it'll be a challenge for me!

I'm still working on looping, but I'm glad this didn't completely screw it up! Thanks a lot for the constructive criticism, and I'll add finishing this to my "to do" list!
