This is an updated version of one of the first electronic music songs that I ever wrote, which I think is of interest because it blends so many genres--trance, house, minimal, Eastern melodies, ambient, classical, videogame music, and movie soundtrack--into a single unified piece of music.

Those who listen through to the end are in for some interesting twists; the song has a definite progression from dark ambience to celebratory light-heartedness.

As always, I would love to hear any thoughts, feelings, images, reactions or other feedback that arise as you listen.

Enjoy!

Weoaaswvo-- cool

I really like the opening! It's pretty sweet. When you come in with the strings it's a little off though. It'd be cool if you could get some better samples for that-- sounds like it might be the Octavian orchestral strings from FL? I like the notes, but the instrumentation at that one part is kind of blah. It gets a little better at 1:23, and I really like 2:03 and onward. The percussion is really well done, it fits nicely and moves along in a really solid and driving way... (The only thing I would like to see is more snare)
I like where you went with the song, and it's really a style unlike I've heard before. Where did you get the inspiration? It seems kind of unstructured, but at the same time good to listen to! 8D.
The ending was a little abrupt though.
So awesome overall! 10/10 5/5 because I can imagine this with a better string section.

Amazing,

The start could be better, a bit annoying. The rest is great! You're clearly better then me when it gets to effects and such! :P

Thanks! I know what you mean about the beginning. With this song, I was trying to blend as many genres as possible, so I wanted to include an ambient section that created a a mood. I think that sometimes having to wait for the music to come in can make it that much more enjoyable when it does. This is a lesson I learned from the Mars Volta and from Led Zeppelin's long jam sessions, which frequently havefeature prolonged sections of ambient noise.
