"Terrae - Oblivia (Opening & Menu Theme)" *Full Name

The eery part (0:00 - 0:50 approx.) is the opening scene
0:51 + is the menu screen, where the person can skip the opening scene straight to around 0:53

This was quite hard to make, seeing as the person I made it for is never on msn >:(
It was also, in my opinion, my best attempt at an epic piece.

Constructive critism please, and thanks blackattackbitch for the suggestions on the harp!
Please rate, review and enjoy! :)

PS: If this makes top of the week (which I doubt, but cross fingers! :), then xP to MH16.



The beginning reminded me alot of Luigis Mansion, then it built into a more epic orchestral piece. It was transitioned really well, and the melody wasn't bad, but it didn't seem to blend quite as well as your others. It was still really good. especially when it built to that climax at the end. I was overall pleased, but think it wasn't your best work. 9/10 and 5/5.

Good Tune

Very nice listen.

thanks alot :)

epic is my middle name

Nice little intro, those pad effects were very eerie indeed. The strings played off eachother very well. The timpani roll prepared me for the main part, but I didnt really forsee what actually ended up going down. It almost had a Lord of The Rings hobbit celebratory feel to it. The silence was alright for a transition, but you probably could have had the strings playing during it for more fluidity. It was good that you brought the melody(chorus) back in, made the song more rounded. I think the main problem with this song, is that each section is so distinctly different, which is ok for mood setting, but for songwriting its not so wise.

The ending sounded sick, I wish it was longer.

Zero123Music responds:

Yes, I agree I need to keep a main theme throughout

thanks for the compliments!


I don't know what the game is about, but it kind of sounds like something with pirates or conquering fleets, something about the open seas anyway. It's epic indeed and very adventurous, in the line of James Newton Howard's animation adventure scoring. The theme sticks in your head and is also very hummable. Very good indeed !

Zero123Music responds:

Your review is highly appreciated! thanks alot :)

Pirates? well I don't think so xD but I have only a story which to write my music for Terrae - Oblivia.

thanks again


Very nice song! It's really suitable for an opening scene and a menu screen :D Not too loud, awesome ambience! I could even see the game in my head xD 10/10 :) (Did you use Roland Orchestral Rythm Soundfont? It sounds like you used it ^^)

Zero123Music responds:

First of all, Thanks!!

second, roland orchestral? well if it's free then probably yes xD, I find that soundfont name famialiar so yes, I think I did use it- well spotted^^
