This is something I wrote a while back, and I've just now decided to produce it for Newgrounds and the web. It is the theme for a young girl named Marion. She is the only one in her kingdom who has the power to do good, and since the whole of her people have been enveloped into greed and lust, she is the one who will give aid and trust to the hero -- Ferlon Blaine.

I decided to make a medieval fantasy theme with this one, and I was inspired by some of Howard Shore's compositions for The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. Although we are very different in writing style, I did use some of the same instrumentation he used.

This is amazing! What do you use to make the music? The harp sounds like eastwest but that's about all I can pick up.

Bosa responds:

Dude.. I am a huge fan of your zombie games. I'll pm you shortly :):):):)

Absolutely gorgeous. Bloody stunning all around, especially the woodwind. In places, it reminds me less of Howard Shore, more of some of Ennio Morricone's quieter western themes.

I can't really think of any higher praise than a Morricone comparison.

Bosa responds:

Truly inspiring. I suppose the difference in style between me and Howard Shore leads me into a totally different direction as you suggested. Thank you for the review.

A sight of beauty amongst chaos. . . a single green tree in a burnt forest. . . virtue among wickedness. . . a single light in the darkness. Absolutely beautiful. It's not always easy to find good new music out there (most of my faves are very old classics) but you have a way with music.

Bosa responds:

Very tranquil imagery, my friend. I appreciate your input.

Oh yes. I can see the princess. Her matted hair, her eyes that lost color long ago. Sitting on thin layer of hay in the castle dungeon, with but a tiny hole in the thick wall to let some light into her cell. Chained to the floor, she weeps for her people. Now ruled by her younger sister, that is in fact controlled by evil cousin, they are forced to slave labor for the alien beings that helped in the rebellion. There is no hope left for this land... or is there? Maybe the ancient portal in the middle of the forest no one dares to enter holds a secret that will change the fate of this world once again...

Huh? I'm sorry, I think spaced out a little too much. I guess that is enough to prove that this piece does not require critique. At least not from me.

Please, give us more compositions in this mood. I beg you D:

Bosa responds:

Certainly, sire.

He's done it again~

This one is a bit more slow paced, and is not for everyone. However, if you truly enjoy music, then you're one of those people who closes their eyes and completely entangles themselves within the piece. This one sounded very medieval in the beginning, but your style involves getting those unorthodox instruments in there where they sync perfectly with the song and is why you are such a great composer :O

I'm soooooo looking forward to more of your music :D

Bosa responds:

You narrowed it down pretty well. Thanks man, I can't wait until you see what I've got coming up next.. I have a feeling it's gonna turn some heads.
