This is my most musically diverse composition to date. The instruments I used were very high quality, which led to the software crashing multiple times. It only took a few days to make it, and I'm thrilled with how it turned out.

Run For The Portal is one of the themes of an upcoming series I've been hard at work on for 2 years. I hope you enjoy listening to it. Please share your feedback!

This theme is good. I'm going to use it for my YouTube video and credit your link so your views are higher than they are. I feel you deserve more. Not fair you are in the thousands.

Best Part

Great music. My favorite part is probably from 1:00 to about 2:30. I like the transitions from quieter to more epic again. This song is about as awesome as my uncle is scary.

Nice one. Sure as hell better than complaining.

The song is, as you said yourself, very intense and action-packed. I love the bassline and I expected you to expand on that part...The bass is an excellent tool to create tension, atmosphere and its ability to "glue" the drums together with the instruments is unmatched.

The part from 1:19 to 1:54 is especially well done. It's starts off like kinda mysterious and then leads to the action loop. Also, it has a Rayman-esque feel to it. Were you inspired by that game (I'm talking about The Great Escape, btw)? I recommend listening to its soundtrack anyway...

That being said, I enjoyed listening to your song. Want to do a collaboration? I'm a composer myself and I love teaming up with people who have the same creative drive I have.


Great song! Love the cellos, and i think there is a little bit of viola. I prefer violin, but this is a great song!

MechieCarlin responds:

Thanks for your comment! There's actually a little bit of Violin in there, as well as Contrabass. They're lowered more than the main Cellos.

Which part of the song is you all's favorite?
