Feels like Donkey Kong and Final Fantasy had a baby. Nice job. :)
Ha! Good one. On a weird note, Umaro from FFVI and DK might actually be compatible... Yeah, that's where my mind went first. :P
Thanks for the review! It's really nice to know that something I made so long ago is still being enjoyed in the present. ^__^
Wow, this is unlike anything I've heard before! It sounds like electronic music but composed with non-electronic instruments. Although I can tell most of it is synthesized, it sounds very natural and open. It's a bit indescribable really. It sounds non-electronic yet at the same time it gives the same kind of feeling. I really wish you would have panned out the instruments more (they all seem to crowd the center), but it sounds awesome anyways! I'd like to know what you used for the bell-ish instrument starting at 0:52 and the one used at 2:35 (I believe it emulates a harpsichord). :D
Thanks for the great review! With my previous DAW, adding stereo effects was an enormously time-consuming and frustrating chore, so most of my longer pieces (including this one) were simply left in their original monaural format. I'm not really one for going back and tweaking old projects, but I do plan on one day remaking Forever Fantasy in FL Studio, so look forward to it! :D
Believe it or not, that bell-like instrument you hear around :52 is supposed to be piano. The quality of instrument samples is one of many reasons that I'm so happy to have moved on to FL, which is much more mainstream. As for the harpsichord--you nailed it! That is indeed what you are hearing between 2:35 and 3:08. Thanks again for leaving a review, and I'm glad that you enjoy the music! I hope that you'll keep checking out my submissions. ^_^
Ever listen to a song from your childhood and get that fluttery-heart feeling that comes with intense nostalgia? Imagine that times a mazillion, and you get the feeling that this song gives me. It feels like you threw the music of Golden Sun, Chrono Trigger, Shining Force, and the rest of my childhood fantasy gaming into a blender and set it on turbo to churn out this masterpiece. Kudos to you, man.
Those are certainly some of my many muses when it comes to musical inspiration, and there are many others, besides. I make a lot of music, but I always come back to the Fantasy genre. It's like an old and dear friend that's always happy to welcome me back. That being said, this is generally considered to be my penultimate composition, and I can't say that I disagree. Sometimes I even wonder how this came out of my own head.
Thank you so much for the review and amazing rating! I am always happy to hear that a piece of music that I created could incite such strong feelings of nostalgia.
your song is referred to me as oracion oracion is the most beautiful song in the world claiming #2 is harder than quantum physics and calculus combined x9000 you earned number2 in the world p.s look up oracion the song not the book
Thank you very much for such an overwhelmingly complimentary review! I'm not really sure what else to say in response to that, but I'm really glad that you enjoy the music! ^_^
When my ears take in every note, may they be nearly perfected mind you, I see what appears to be opened skies full of hopes and dreams where one is to glide through and reach for within their strongest points in life. Not only is this the cortex of said context, but this song represents the very origin that leads up to this moment.. Perhaps, say they are about to begin their journey; saying their 'farewell until then's' to all of their loved ones.. They take flight on what appears to be a dragonfly.. Mhmm, your song twists reality into a mystical place where logic seizes to exist-- I like that.
My completely fair 5/5 10/10. One of your best, if not the best. I listened to the whole thing til I reviewed. It was worth every millisecond. Well done, my friend. Now, I shalt share some more of my philosophy. ^-^
- Philosophy #54192 -
Essentially, the dawn of man is carried by his shadow; as the light seizes to exist, but man will soon turn against their shadow to cast it into a realm of shadows, but was this shadow really a shadow, or were /we/ the shadow?
In time, as I've long lived in this corrupted world.. No matter how lost I've come to be; no matter how much people tried to deceive me, to use me, for their own purposeless agendas that granted nothing but emptyness. A candle beneath my conscious realm remained lit.. No amount of darkness would blow the candle light out. I continued to glide through life, through it's perilous darkness, making mistakes, not knowing where to go.. but inside something kept guding me to the right direction. I might've not seen what was before me, but I knew that I had no need to indulge in my selfish hunger. I wanted more.. I was wanted to know why I couldn't see what reality blinded me from seeing; questioning everyone and everything, for how strange this world was to me.. How lies became the truth, and when anyone tries to speak the truth.. they say it's a lie.. How we couldn't speak up for ourselves.. how people were right when they never gave you a chance to defend against their claims.. It was living through this moment of time that helped me realise what life is about. What the shadow really was, and why I am able to see things in people while they continue to see rejected aspects of themselves through me.
I am never going to forget what the voice inside my head once told me: ''It is the hollow points of life that makes this world whole''. Meaning, that everything, significant and insignificant come together as one.. There is a bridge to everything.. It there is no light.. We wouldn't know how to approach darkness. If there was no hatred, how would we appreciate peacefulness? If there was no shadow.. Where would balance be? If we were only one thing? A life that is built aorund opposites and differences is what makes this world so whole.. Without opposing elements, there would be no such thing as an element if there weren't more than one element.. What matters is how we become aware of all of life's elements; how to manifest them. Dark, light. Happiness, sadness. Good, bad.
To live through heaven. To live through hell. To live through ourselves. To live in this world. To live in different mind; to stand in the same world. That is life.. To not fret for what we want, to live to be. The man I stand for, infront of of 100's, or 1000's of human beings one day.. Will be the man I will die as. Man may have more than one face, but that doesn't mean these faces are not a part of this man.. I understand the answer to life now, and hopefully.. One day.. others will understand as well.
It's really too easy to pretend to be a somebody. Then to live the person you ought to be. It's too easy to play god that only controls things through your weakness. Try controlling this world through your strengths and your weaknesses. A man with a family, with a perfect life would not save a life like a man with nothing going for him would.
I dare somebody to save this world when they have everything they always wanted. This is what life is about..
To become the best of what we are to be.
TLDR! Just kidding. I simply don't even know where to begin with so much philosophical waxing. Much depth, indeed. For my part I will be more brief and simply thank you from the bottom of my heart for such an in-depth and honest review. The time and effort you have put into it are commendable, and my hope is that - after listening to what may be my magnum opus - you will not think less of my remaining repertoire.
Perhaps I am saving this world one song at a time...? Perhaps not, but a man may dream, and dreams sought after with enough tenacity can one day become reality.
