I'm picturing somebody climbing a mountain, somebody being chased, somebody fighting incredible odds for a hero's goal, something that saves the world. That's why I call this epic, not in the way that skater kids call their boards, but in the "Beowulf" sense.
The buildup got my heart beating; it really did. I was so consumed with the drums, the rising strings, the whole piece coming together, that I kind of lost touch; the music is just that consuming. I feel kind of bad, though, because I'd love to animate to this, but my skill level just isn't there yet. I'll keep this in my Favorites though!
The outro is beautiful. Satisfying, but not droning. It's a conclusion not unlike one in a superhero movie, where the hero finishes what he/she needs to do, and the camera zooms out-- no epilogue, no images during the credits; the whole shebang's just through. Excellent work on that; oftentimes people don't know how to end their stories, just look at the work of Mark Twain.
