The Story of One Man

Hey Newgrounds this song was supposed to represent the life of a man who had to fight for his rights and how life can come at you from different directions.

I didn't quite finish this one, but then again nothing is ever really finished because there is always something more to change, add, or get rid of. This song took me about four days to finish. Experimenting with many different instruments and ideas took up most of time that this song consumed. Isn't that how it's supposed to work?

I hope everyone enjoys and if someone is interested, they could record vocals and send them to me. I would try to add them to the song and give us both credit. Just pm me.

Please review and rate fairly.

A Story Was Told Here Today

I'm sure every person could find something in this song that tells a story of one person. I think adding vocals to this would actually destroy the song. The strings, bass, and piano... it all combined so well together.

It tells the story of a man on top of the world who comes down to either sorrow of defeat or sorrow of not knowing his greater purpose in the world. As he walks the streets in the rain with only his memories, but what do these memories mean?

I really enjoyed this piece and would certainly love to see more from you in the future.

i was impressed

but as you said, it's not quite finished. i hear a great beat, backgrounds, and melody (could be a little bit stronger) but it just ended before anything could happen. The instrumentation is perfect, but i believe you should spend another day or two creating a piece that actually moves somewhere with these parts, this song is just too short

as i listen i get a melodic vibe,

i can see this man walking, a bit of a montage type thng going on. walking into town during the rain and out again on the next rain.
