The name makes me think that this would be a good theme for Discworld's Death, dark and yet quiet and soothing as it is.

So pretty...

Wow. This is beautiful. Great music gives its listeners images in their minds, and you've accomplished that. The song is somewhat sad, yet hopeful. Dark, yet soothing. Scary, yet magical. Very good job making it sound all 'together' even though it contains so many emotions. Amazing job.

not bad

Nice little tune. Haunting, magical, short and to the point. I just don't especially like it. Chalk it up to personal opinion, I guess. Good job though.


This is very soothing, yet eerie at the same time. Especially in the beginning.

I like the different instruments you used in this song. They create quite an interesting mix for this particular song. Although, I'm not crazy about the vocal part. It seemed a bit out of place if you ask me.

I'm not sure I like how it loops. It really seems to be a bit shaky there. And this is far to short to be a full song. But since it is in a flash, I'm gonna take this as what was asked of you. Probably for a particular scene I would guess. If so, then it makes sense. But you should make a longer version of it as well if that is the case. Make it into a real true song.

Everything seems to be in really good balance. Although, the lack of a low end makes me slightly wary. But every now and then it is ok to be top heavy. I do believe this to be one of those cases.

I like this, but I'm not quite sure I love it. ;-)

4/5 and 8/10 overall. Really nice work here. Depending on the animation, this sounds like it would fit very well in a flash scene.


soothing almost.

When I listen to this It feels like I'm standing outside with the wind blowing gently in my face. With a song calming I'm kinda curious how it will work with the flash Death Wish since the name sounds kinda sinister. Should be interesting, also thank you for pleasing my ears with this lovely tune.

Nice imagery Fox! :) I am glad that you find this song soothing. As for the concerns for whether or not this would fit in the flash comic Death Wish, its a thing you'll have to see for yourself or you can read the review I gave to Symbol. Anywho, thanks for the review and I hope to hear more from you. ^ ^- Ji
