More calm background music with Flute, PIano and Strings. The second section which goes in G major is very different to the beginning part as I didn't reuse the Melody from the flute. Great for any animation about nature things like that thanks for listening :)

Beautifully done. Could I use it as background music on youtube for a slideshow on Ikebana?

so beautiful

-sniff- lol sorry I didn't mean to get all choked up I'm usually not an emotional person. That was great, I can't wait to hear what else you have. 5/5

@ grhbah More to come similar to this composition and even more emotional :) Thanks for listening.


I honestly don't know what to say that could accurately project what this piece is justified...

smallfry14 responds:

@Luxas-kun No worries but Beautiful sums it up as you've said. Cheers :)

I'm shocked!

I'm left completely speechless from this composition! How did you create such an amazing work of beauty and serenity? I bow before you my friend, sadly the portal misses much of these works of art as they are overrun from hard techno beats. As the guy before me said, this sounds like it could go into an Elder scrolls game! It would fit so well as a traveling song at dusk or into the night! You definitely have talent here and I want you to keep up the amazing work!

@ Snak It's all down to arrangement and carefully blending in all instruments to support one another. I just keep the simple melody throughout and then have certain sections of the orchestra to express the moods. The piano served as the "lone soloist" until the flute takes over straight away with it's simple yet beautifully played melody. The strings come in but only to serve as the background because later the strings would serve as an "answer" to the question at the start and give the music some closure. That's pretty much how I arranged it in musical terms!
Speaking about Bethesda games I have this music played in the town levels of Fallout 3 lol cheers for listening and reviewing.

yeah you now what ?

this remind me of "The Elder Scrolls - Oblivion"
will use it ingame, ride with my horse trought the forest to sit around the campfire
laid back to keep track of the nature arround...
I love it, this is so great...
Thanks for this very very good song...
5/5 - 10/10 - fav and down

@ LennyCertan Thanks for listening and posting your review.
I've not heard the Elder Scroll Soundtrack so the idea for this music came from my head! There's more like this to come btw :)
