I was testing all the orchestral plugins in FL studio and this is what came of it, after i finished it i made my other song "Under the Rising Sun" so the progression sounds very similar.

An interesting use of pentatonic styles with some clear influences in there. It set a scene very well but i cant help but feel there needed more variation. It seemed more like a dance piece when you examine its structure, its more about building layers than traveling along. Tonality didn't really move at all but it is hard to do so in this style. I felt the piano and cello worked really well, and the drums were programmed authentically. I would have personally used a more indigenous instrument such as a Taiko. The ground bass line had a nice shape but again it would have been more interesting if it had changes, pauses, modulation ect....

The piece became more effective as it went on and had good imagery.

Conjures up many moods...

This song has a nice dark feel to it, due to the cello however the piano seems to interject hope into the equation making it a great song to listen to when your felling down, or just to relax on any occasion. Great job, keep up the good work.

P.S Thanks for letting me know about FL studio, I've been looking for something like it for a while now, don't know how I haven't found it. Can't wait to use it, so I can make some music to upload to Newgrounds myself.
