This is my submission for the "I Swear It's True!" audio contest. I'm sorry that it's so long, exceeding the 4 min cap. I hope this doesn't disqualify me from the contest.

Edit (7/18/09): This won 5th place in the contest! Thanks to everyone who voted for me, and congrats to Kaizerwolf for his winning entry! I can't believe I've won something for my music. Hopefully this is the start of some great stuff.



For such a slow song, it doesn't get boring. It moves the whole way through. You have amazing talent, but you just need to stop making music. Your filling up my playlist!

Excellent song. This goes on my playlist.

Stunning piece...

What synthesizer / sample cd / sample library did you use?
However great job! You deserved #5!

If I remember right it was the Squidfont Orchestral soundfont, which I believe can be found here: http://www.soundfonts.darkesword.com/

And thanks for the review!


This is an amazing piece of work you've put together. The simplicity of it just makes it that much more emotional and heartfelt. This is literally bringing tears to my eyes as, in my mind, I envision the towers falling.

You are an amazing artist sir.

I'd like to sample this one day, if I might.

Keep up the good work, and good luck in the contest. Check out my submission as well if you get a chance.


A great emotional adagio/requiem-like song, very heartfelt and sad. I loved it. The sound quality is good and the strings sound realistic enough. I would have loved some more instruments, but I guess it's better as it is. There's a certain sad/solemn feel to it that works better with just the strings. Great work and good luck at the contest.

Very emotional.

Great track man, I hope you don't get disqualified either.
Very emotional indeed, I'm sure it would be a lot more emotional had I have been a bit older at the time and/or American.
Anyway I found this I hope it's of some use.

Thanks for the article! No, I wasn't disqualified, though I was given a warning that next time it happened I wouldn't be so lucky.
