This is my first song made and put onto Newgrounds. I only worked on it for a day, so don't be too harsh! (I was also half asleep writing some of it hahaha.) It isn't completely finished yet! :p I'll put the full version up sometime soon, when I complete it. So you can expect a better version of it pretty quick here. By the way, I have no idea how to play any instruments except the violin, so there might be some crazy notes that don't belong in this song that you may notice. Haha, anyways, enjoy! :)

AshleyAlyse responds:

This is very old, haha, but I'm glad you like it! Thank you so much! :D


To say this was your first piece, it is quite outstanding. Keep on improving and you will be a great composer.

AshleyAlyse responds:

Thank you so much. I'm still working and I'm constantly improving. I certainly hope to become an amazing composer in the future. :)

This is truly great...

These couple of days my mind has been building up a story, and when I found this, I just keep seeing the first scene of it playing back over again, and also I think of a part when one of the main characters gives a retrospect to that scene from a later point in the story.

It's like you've given me an epiphany!

I do have a question though, what software did you use to compose this?

BTW, doesn't this remind you of Chrono Trigger?

AshleyAlyse responds:

Thank you! :D Haha if I've given you an epiphany, I feel honored! ;D I used Reason 3.0 to compose this piece. I now use Reason 4.0, but there is not much of a difference between the two. This is my first piece of music ever composed, so I need to fix it up sometime haha. Ah, and I've heard of Chrono Trigger, but never played the games or anything. Does it sound like a song on one of the games or something?

The road ahead is light...

I tried listening to the song carefully, looking for errors, but I couldn't really focus in on it well. Through listening to it, I could say that I felt a strong sense of mystery and wonder. I couldn't find any of those crazy notes. I feel that every note has its place in this song. Sounds like it would work great in a game while a story is being told. For me, I like to listen to it while I study. To sum things up, the song turned out great for one day's work and I look forward to future submissions. 9/10

Thank you very much! :)
