An entry to "Feelings of Music" Contest

-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-
Album: Draconity
Track #03

This is my new masterpiece, Dragon's Awakening, the 3rd track of my album "Draconity". With supreme VST and some studies about orchestra, I've given all the things I have to complete this piece. You won't regret it, especially Ambient/Classical listeners. :)
----

There's a story behind this song though. If you listen attentively, you will know that there're 3 distinctive parts in the song.

-------------------------
First Part - Overture (0.00-0.58)
-------------------------

A boy has a nightmare while he's sleeping. The past reminds him of who he is, the crime he has done, and the lost of the humanity. He wakes up with sweat bathing all over his body, breathing heavily.

-------------------------
Second Part - Awakening (0.59-2.08)
-------------------------
Suddenly, there's a light glowing from his palms....His hands shake by themselves as he stares them with fear. Meanwhile, his legs follow the same actions as his hands. He begins to panic and gradually loses control of his movement. The light from his palms then glows even brighter, creating a ray of colorless spectrum. It starts to surround him as he floats above his bed....his body transforming.....to what he had been.

-------------------------
Third Part - Acceptance (2.09-3.36)
-------------------------

The transformation eventually stops. Now he has become his trueself once again....Even though he is never happy to let anyone see his real personality, at least he could take off his mask once and feel free.....He grabs the window frame and surges himself outward to the night sky, flying with his dragon wings, smiling.

I spent more than 9 hours on this piece, probably taking the longest I've put in newgrounds. Please drop some contructive reviews and vote reasonably. :)

Thank you so much.

Another great song/story combination.

Dragon lovers rejoice. Another great song that perfectly weaves the story in sound that you created in words. The song builds up a lot of suspense, but plays off of it by using softer, more agile parts. Keep up the good work because your pieces just keep getting better.


Xyirx responds:

This was a piece greatly inspired by producer named Edgen. (You can easily google and find him in the first list though.) I think that imagining the story before composing could help a lot in building emotions. This is one of the pieces I've done this way. Glad you've enjoyed it. I'll keep Draconity tracks coming when I'm available.

Nice!

I love the beginning, really tunes in, suspenseive, give some expectations of a grandeur that never quite arrives though, but overall it sounds great, very mysterious and agile, ambient and swift, keep it going!

-cd-


Xyirx responds:

Very descriptive review! O_o

I used violin tremolo just to get things chilly and scary in the beginning there. In middle of the song, it loses a little bit of intensity, but the end compensates well, I hope.

Thank you very much for your review. It's been so long I get one from you! :D

I'm totally speechless @___@ You have handled well with the story and emotion of the song, and I have seen tons of improvement since the last time I checked your songs! @___@

You have made the dragon lovers proud, too ^^


Xyirx responds:

Of course, I shall continue my Draconity album to make the dragon lovers even more proud. ^^

Really good instruments.

big ups to that.
This really follows the story through as you've written it. I've got to be honest, those VST's do most of the work. But I can hear lots of skill too! Kinda like the guy below me, my jaw dropped too, but that was the instruments.
It's really great for being like an ambient piece, not menat to be "listened" to too closely.. just in the background... but then, it bursts into flames! you can't go away, it has you.
You could do great horrors with this.
I'd love to hear more from you. Gonna do that when I get some free time.

Intro works out. good progression.. loved the choirs when they came in.
I didn't like those violines at 1:40.
2:07-2:28 almost nailed it, so close. something about that chord 2:21-2:23 made me like it less... maybe add a melody for high-pitched choirs there? silent.. soft..

but then it works out well again.
liked the ending, well done.

I'll fav you.

Thanks for the fav. too!
