This composition was a pure dose of random inspiration; there's really no other way to describe it. The piano melody and percussive parts just sort of came to me when I wasn't even in any sort of position to do anything with them at the time. I did everything I could to perpetuate them in my mind until I was finally able to put them down in a more permanent way.

There are lyrics to this bubbling around in my mind, and I'm hoping to do more with it in the future...but for now it's purely instrumental. These are my first musical submissions to Newgrounds. I hope somebody out there enjoys my sound. :)

Thank you! :D

It's always like this.

"Let's start our great adventure! It will be playfull, joyfull, so much fun! Let's travel around the world, even if we're here, on this simple land, in this little town.

We'll discover so much, we never know what will happen next."

In some way, this song remind me a lot of the musics played on the beginning in a lot of rpg's, when the hero and his friends start to move to the first step. An adventure seems always magic and awesome, the calm before the storm.

But no matter what, these simples memories will stay in our heart, 'cause it was the beginning of everything.

ChronoNomad responds:

Not a bad analogy, but I hadn't personally made that kind of connection until you mentioned it just now. Life is usually pretty easygoing at the beginning of any tale, but that's before the real story begins. The music reflects that happy-go-lucky kind of feel, but there's an undercurrent of sadness because there's that unspoken knowledge that the good times just can't last forever.

Thanks for another fun review, SarkenHS! I love hearing about what the music means to my listeners. I already know what it means to me, so it's nice to have a fresh perspective.

nicely done

quite simply a feel good piece of musical art, no complaints on this one

ChronoNomad responds:

Thanks, and it's good to hear! As long as the music evokes some kind of emotional response from the listener I have done my job successfully.


This is one of my absolute FAVOURITES of your original pieces. Your music always impresses me; it's awesome. I can't wait to see what lyrics you come up with. I'd LOVE to sing this. :D

ChronoNomad responds:

Not much to sing until the lyrics have been written, but thanks! I can't wait to see what kind of lyrics I come up with, either... ^_^;
