-- As the memories of all that was dear to you flicker through your eyes, you take the final step ahead, on the road of no return.

An orchestral film soundtrack for an improvised on-the-spot script. Makes up for a good practice :P I did concentrate more on getting emotion out of singular instruments anyway, an orchestra is a powerful tool when you know how to get the power out of a portion of it.

So beautiful, intense towards the end, I can picture real scenes from movies with this playing, I'm totally gonna use more of your songs soon!

Used this and two other songs

I made a video for the Ventura County CERT program using three of Devasus's songs. Good stuff.

You Tube versions are here: http://www.youtube.com/user/scottinoj aivideos#p/u/0/ETfJr6tW2dk

Music makes the program. Thanks


You have an incredible understanding of scoring good music for film and the like. Keep up the good work.

Very good!

Before the 30-second mark, some of the harmonies really don't jive well- it seems needlessly dissonant at points. Dissonance is fine, but if there's no real reason for dissonance, then it feels out of place.

However, after that, the song got better.
The intro of the strings felt a little artificial, but I can forgive that, since once the fingers point back at me, they see how bad my sounds are!

This gets better as it goes along. I would recommend some panning though, because it feels like everything is clustered along the middle, which makes it hard to distinguish which instrument is doing what.

Keep up the good work, though- this is very good and I hope you continue to improve!


Amazing man, amazing. You definitely did a stellar job at capturing emotion within each instrument how da hellz do you do it. Mad respect for you Jani I've always had that respect for you. Good stuff bud.
