This, I belive, is my greatest accomplishment musically to date.
Though its far from amazing or perfect, I believe it has alot of character. And I'd spent weeks on it, so I was naturally proud with what id achieved after those weeks.

I like to think of the song as a journey. As the tune begins, close your eyes and try to imagine flying over a beautiful, peaceful country side setting, with farms and villages scattered here and there. Rolling hills dotted with sheep, horse and cows.
Then, suddenly land gives way to the ocean. The sun is high in the sky, reflecting off the waves of the dazzling, clear water. Everything is clean and beautiful as a couple of Dolphin begin swimming next to you. Then, you see land ahead, filled with an ominous precence. As you fly over the shores you see the ground is stained red and the bodies of hundreds of soldiers have littered the ground. You continue over some hills to be confronted by the main warfront, with thousands of men, swords in hands, trying to kill their enemies. Your heart beats faster with the pace of the battle. Deciding you dont like what you see, you turn towards the mountains to the west, and fly in that direction, just as the sun begins to pull behind those mountains.

Thats what I like to imagine when I listen to it anyways XD
Hope you enjoy it anyways :)

Well done

It was very good, but I felt that it was a little disjointed. It seems like you had 2-3 ideas for a song and couldn't decide which one to use, so you stuck all of them into one piece. I would sacrifice length and put each main theme into their own piece. It would give you a chance to develop each one more fully.

Also, it seemed to be missing a musical element. I listened to it a few times and realized that you are missing a lot of the lower tones. The low, sustained notes that bring the whole piece together. Incorporating a climbing or opposing bass line to the melody would add that extra level of depth. The piano section about 2:40 in was a good start.

Overall I really like it. It shows that you put a lot of work into it. Well done.
