This is a song about leaving a place, and encountering new experiences. Sometimes moving is hard, but the reward is ten times better. The typewriter represents the words of farewell. Just close your eyes and let the sound tell the story to your heart.

Note: I highly recommend using headphones while listening to this song, to experience the maximum of it.



I like everything but the clicks

I think this is an excellently orchestrated work. The mood and melody are perfect, and the intonation is very well done. However, during the quiet moments I'm really distracted by the clicks. I listened to the song on its own merits and initially thought there might be a problem with my speakers. It wasn't until I read your comment that I realized they're supposed to be typewriter clicks. Just as a personal opinion, I don't think they really add to the song since it's not obvious what the sound is without the description. The song is beautiful enough that the listener can clearly get the mood you were going for without the distraction of the clicks.

The mood you create with the instruments is nice.

The scales and pitches of the instruments you use, create a nice relaxing mood. However, at the same time they create a story for those who want to really listen. As you already said in the description, "This is a song about leaving a place and encountering new experiences" I can say this hits the nail on the head.

This is probably one of the higher quality sounding submissions you have, and because of that it sounds even greater. This really deserves the score that I give it, 10/10, 5/5, because I can tell you put time and effort into this. That in itself deserves to be rewarded, half of the music you hear now is half-assed attempts at whatever.

Good job Gian, be proud of your work.

Alright not bad.

This is very soothing and relaxing to listen to. I could easily sit back in my chair and listn to this for hours on end without getting bored of it. Excellent work on this song man. It deserves a rewarding 10/10 and 5/5. I also downloaded it because of how good it is.


Pretty clean recording and nice strings. I like the mixing job on this, everything feels so subtle.

Your acoustic work is really nice.

Thanks man, I don't usually record with my acoustic, but sounds fine. I may make more stuff like this. About the strings, well, I'm still a noob at FL so.. It could have been better.
