Hello NG! This is a collaboration project between Dudidum and myself. The original piano piece played by Dudidum was over 8 minutes long and can be heard at www.newgrounds.com/audio/
listen/341848. Dudidum released it on 06/19/2010. I came along and found the piece on 12/20/2010 and it really inspired me. So I wrote to Dudidum and asked if he would mind if I collaborated with him on this piece. He actually liked the idea so I started working on layering a Symphony Orchestra on top of his original piece.

He mentioned that the piano was tuned a little off from the normal 440Hz. To make it work, I adjusted its pitch to match with the other instruments that would be playing along with it. After about 10 hours of work, I now present to you the first half of "Journey - Reloaded." Enjoy!

The sounds in this piece come from EWQL Symphonic Orchestra Gold Edition layered on top of Dudidum's original piano recording. I used Sony Acid Pro 7.0 as the host program.

NOTE: As I mentioned above, this is only the first half of the song. I don't know if I will finish the 2nd half though. I guess it really depends on the votes we receive on this. That is, if it can maintain a score that keeps it on the first page of the Classical Genre, then it will inspire me to work on and finish the second half. :)


Brilliant fictional narrative...-like...ish thing

I find this collaboration to be well worth it. Looking forward to second half of the journey. While, I'm not one for the amount of crescendo with the strings 0:05-0:30, I really like the overall composition, clarity, and movement of the piece. I am curious how you composed this symphony, and if the piano was done in the same way. The song reminds me of the end of a dream I once had, sadly that dream did not end, and I am waiting to find out what I find at the end. Perhaps, when if you two create part 2, I will have glimpse of the answer.

Wow! How breathtaking!

Wow, this is quite an incredible piece. Very graceful, calm, and dare I say emotional. (No homo) It sure is a nice break from all the heavy metal, dubstep, and other loud ass crap on here. This can totally go with a movie credits it's just so breathtaking! You two really did an awesome job together. Now that I think of it...The Audio portal should have a collaberation option like the flash portal. Maybe Tom will put it in the redesign.

That said nice job guys!

This is just too beautiful.

That no words may be able to suffice what I want to say.

You most definitely have created a great accompaniment to the original track. I feel it gives it more depth while maintaining the emotional quality of the plain piano track. The only criticism I can give for this piece is that it isn't both parts :)

It looks like I may have to start writing the 2nd part. This has barely made it on the front page of Classical genre at the 50th place. :)

By the way, you have a talented man in your hands. Keep him! ;)
