I had to do an English Project on Henry David Thoreau's collection of writings called "Walden." To make a long story short this one of the songs I used. It's kind of diverse so listen to the whole thing. I like the ending, but that's just me. Listen, rate, and comment please!


Now i wanna read that!

I like it really, im kinda of impressed by how the main melody reapeats itself a lot and still, the smoth transitions between other related good and interesting detours bring us even closer to the main melody in a interested and funny way but you can overlook it and just have have this kind of attention to wathever is happening while the tune plays, its a cute tune, and quirky somethimes, i hope that become a trend.

About the descripition, dont need to cut the story short, its your comments, and i dont know if its only me, but i like to know the context of the piece.

the ending....meh, its one step from becoming a loop if hasnt already (i think is has), and i dont know if that was your intention.

But thats just my naive opnion

Cymphium responds:

I'll agree it's kind of an odd creation. I tried to make sure there was enough variation, thus the many transitions. And true, i dont need to cut my story short, but I didn't feel like writing one out at the moment. I usually come back to it later and lengthen author comments like that.
The context... well let me explain the project itself. We were to choose 100 quotes from the reading, sort them into any categories we would like, then come up with some clever presentation to embody the quotes. If I had had a bit more time, it might've been better than it was. I rushed since I had other obligations. I created a "book" with a title page, my intro and my quotes. That being explained, I named this Thoreau's Theme simply because his philosophic quotes covered so many bases, as does this song.
If I had worked on this song a bit more I probably would've came up with a better ending. And who knows? maybe not. My intent was never to make this a loop; it just worked out this way. And, now that you mention it, it does work as a loop, doesn't it?
Thanks for the review!

Why yes...

It is very diverse. A wonderful arrangement of sounds at varying degrees.
