Beautiful Betrayal

Author Comments

Your beloved king is murdered...and your long lost friend is the murderer...As the details behind this betrayal unfold, the entire world seems to slow. You find that you yourself are the next victim, and you are defenseless. Such an intricate plan of betrayal could almost be described as....beautiful.

(Someone requested that I compose some background music for a story being written, and this is the result. I hope that you enjoy it!)

Thank you! I just sent a PM your way.

I do feel like this

It's, well kinda a shame at me cuz I did just checked 2 of your songs only, Sadness and Sorrow and this one. Am I even alive before listening to your songs? It's all, super nice, awesome, or even no word can describe this "epicosity". The helpless feeling after revealing the biggest hurting, painful secret, yet couldn't do anything; beautiful.

..I wonder if I'm able to ask you to make musics for my story, too?

BlazingDragon responds:

Send me your story and I'll see what I can do. I'm a little busy sometimes, but I can always use more practice.

Thanks Jack!


I haven't checked your page out in a while, what a nice surprise it was. I see you've upgraded to a different library, or at least it sounds like you did... Very high quality stuff. East West? What are you using now? The instruments kind of remind me of Silk.

This piece is written extremely well. It could almost be described as... beautiful. ;)

You're incredible, man. I wish people would pay as much attention to you as they do some other slightly undeserving artists... Not to be bitter or anything! Keep up the great work!

BlazingDragon responds:

This one was made with East West Goliath and Symphonic Orchestra Platinum Plus. Thankfully, I got a killer discount!

Man, you made my night with this review! Thanks for the uplifting review.

My short lived popularity has mostly died out, and it does seem like there is a lot of junk floating around in the top 30 much of the time. Still, I am so thankful for all the kind words that people have given in reviews. I'm just happy to be making music, and I'll keep making more. :)

Ima write a story to go with this anyway (ha!)

Cleverly obvious, and yet subtle. It's another introspective piece, but with the lens directed outward, so it just feels so very wrong in such a very right way. I immediately felt suspicious of the guy sitting next to me when I started listening to this. (He's chewing his gum 3 chews per minute slower than he was earlier.... hmmmmmmmmmmmm) Nah, just kidding, but seriously, great piece, and I look forward to the next one.

One piece of constructive advice, however. The shift at 1:14 is just the slightest too jagged. It feels wrong in a distinctly wrong way, and just sort of yanks one out of the song rather than driving one further into it.

Anyway, great work. I'm looking forward to the next time you have a stroke...

...of genius, that is.

BlazingDragon responds:

Your first paragraph made me literally laugh out loud! Thanks for getting my morning off to a good start. :p

As for the shift at 1:14, I can understand what you mean. In the context of the audio book that I composed this for, though, it was supposed to mark a point of total shock. The jaggedness was very intentionally, signifying the main character's realization that the Hellish reality unfolding before her is occurring at the blood stained hands of a person whom she thought to be friend. Hopefully that gives you a bit more context, but you have a valid point!

That last part was so cheesy, I couldn't help but laugh....lol. :) Thanks for the review, my friend!

Dang it!

I really want to create a small story for this piece, I really do. But there are complications with that being said.

1)You already made a small little story in the description, which basically is a good interpretation of the music.

2)Someone needed this music for THEIR story.

So that's why I'm unable to write an awesome story for this yet another great piece.....meaning this piece was FANTASTIC!

As always, (and by now, no surprise) here's your rating:


BlazingDragon responds:

Your still welcome to make up an alternative one! :D But thanks nonetheless, I am flattered. :)
