This is my contest entry for RAC4. I noticed that someone was representing Antarctica, so I thought, "Hey, what about the North Pole, they are quite the polar opposites!" I had previously written a piece called Antarctica and had a fitting melody in the works, so the North Pole was a no brainer!

Also, this an improvement to the previously submitted version. This one has more sparkles and solo violin instead of a violin section.

So, enjoy the soothing sounds, and let the music take you into a dream, a pleasant and beautiful one. Don't forget to vote and comment!




I love how you obtain the epic effect without overdoing it. Reminds me a bit of the Syberia games. It's hauntingly beautiful. I can't think of much else to say. All I can do is close my eyes and let the music paint the picture. It also sounds great, mixing is handled well, just a little clipping I noticed in one part, but in my opinion it's not enough to affect the rest of the song. Excellent work, and good luck at the contest !

PenguinSam responds:

Thank you!

And I think I just have to agree with the clipping. That was the loudest spot of the entire piece, so the clipping was inevitable.

I am very glad that you enjoyed this piece!


Veerrryyy nice

you really know how to direct your notes into an emotion. This is motion picture sound track quality.

You made the north pole a very unhappy place, haha. Thats horrible, you particularly corrupted my childhood memory of the northpole. ONLY because i'm stoned and i lose myself in my mind often.

PenguinSam responds:

Ah yes, motion picture sound track quality. I may just have to do some film scoring then, won't I?

Ya know, my favorite part about getting reviews and comments is to see different people's interpertation of my work. I personaly see this as just grand and beautiful, but to hear that it is sad makes sense as well. And don't worry, Santa is just taking a nap. :P


pretty cool.

need to re-adjust the reverb levels as well as the overall signal. it is clipping at loud parts. :( other than that, it's pretty cool.

PenguinSam responds:

Yeah, it does clip at the loud hit. However, the reverb is exactly where I want it to be. The north pole is vast and open, so any less reverb would not represent it's vastness! I may be able to fix the clips, I hope.


Indeed awesome

You captured the barren and icy wasteland, and its cool

PenguinSam responds:

Thank you!



This is defiantly better than the other version. Very ambient and mysterious, easily got myself lost while listening to it. Gives off the right feeling, and I could definitely see the north pole, although it may be a sad deserted santa's workshop ghost town kind of north pole.

Great job

PenguinSam responds:

Oh wow, that's a really neat image. Just the thought of his deserted workshop, it's fairly haunting.

Thank you for the review, it's nice to get input!
