The Son of the Wind God

Download this song!

Author Comments

This is my theme for a certain character. He is a good guy, and he is the son of the "Wind God."

It starts out really slow and ominous, representing his birth and his purpose. He is sad, he has entered a world of pain and suffering. About halfway through the song, his heroic theme is played in its full stringy glory. The song then speeds up, it sounds like he is "flying," then at the end he slowly comes back down to the ground.

The entire song is based off of two chords, listen and you'll know what I'm talking about.

This song took me a long time, so please listen to it before rating it. I've had this theme in my head for years, but this is by far its best reincarnation, so I decided to post it on Newgrounds.

The exact "storyline" is unimportant, just tell me what you think of the song! If you liked it, take a listen at some of my other songs.

EDIT: This song has been a large success on my part. Keep rating it up you guys! Thank you so much. Also, I've just written a thematic companion to this song, "The Wind God's Lament." Check that out if you enjoyed this!

Nice work

Btw, don't tell people to rate up because mass numbers of dumbass will do it opposite way.

Amazing work man. Keep it up.

great track

I can see why this has been well-received! I like the way you use only two chords. Rather than limit you, it frees this music to change really effectively through different instrumentation and tempos.

Tainlorr responds:

Yes, i found tons of ways to manipulate that one very simple chord progression (and some parts use three, but yeah.) Thanks a ton!


I saw your new one on the audio portal while looking for a friends song and I'm very glad that I decided to listen to your new one because the title was intriguing. And then of course I had to listen to this one to get the full affect.
And it was amazing! I love music like this and I absolutely loved it! After reading your description, I could totally imagine it all! You have quite a talent!

Beautiful work

The piece is very beautiful sounding, and nicely orchestrated. I couldn't help but feel that it could use some more.. Moxie I suppose.

Just an opinion, but I'd like to hear you work with some more dissonant harmonies. As it is.. It sounds nice, yeah, but parts if it are really cliche. Like, a lot of the techniques I'm hearing are the same techniques that composers for big budget movies seem to be using as of late.

Don't be mistaken though, I really do think this is a beautiful piece of work, and I can tell some effort was put into it. It's certainly better than most of the shit on Newgrounds =p

Tainlorr responds:

Thanks for giving attention to this song (and my other one.) This song isn't supposed to have any dissonance (or very little, as there is practically no conflict involved emotionally.) And yes, it is very cliche. But those are big budget movies. And If my work sounds like theres, that's a good thing.

And yes, most of the work on Newgrounds is shit.

I don't usually write reviews for songs...

...but this was breathtaking. This goes above and beyond what is hear in movies! This really provokes my imagination. Listening to this, I picture your character as one who grows up as the opposite of what society demands of him, a saint when they want a soldier, and is banished. When the song picks up, I can picture a sudden, massacre-like invasion, and him swooping down to save the innocent people being attacked. A couple of other stories pop into my head from this piece, too.
I have been inspired by this masterpiece!
