I love reading your comments. :D

[I might Update the MP3, because this piece is too short for my taste]

Loved this song so much that I used it for my recent production for the One Day on Earth Project. It was perfect the way it starts slowly, picks up in a playful way, becomes big and dynamic, and then quiet at the end. https://vimeo.com/56481350

I wish it would have been a bit longer too! :)


Really great stuff. Orchestration strikes me as very solid. The arpeggios in the piano gives it a really epic, inspiring feel and the grace notes notes at 1:19 and 1:26 add so much despite being a simple touch.

I'd give it a 10, but while the first 40 seconds seem 50 seconds or so sound more or less perfect, the woodwind feel quite intruding thereafter, though less so towards the end. The pitched percussion (can't for the life of discern what it is, steel drums? :S) also feels rather in-your-face. Still, I can only hope to be as good with MIDI orchestration and production as you obviously are some time in the (probably distant) future!

Playful and yet epically moving.

I love the way it starts slow and sad, really emphasising the feeling of loss, but very quickly builds into a very playful gesture and suddenly erupts into a magical and epic brilliance. The sense of freedom and flight cannot be mistaken. Then it slowly returns to the sadness, completing the circle and ending the piece quite well.

The sad beginning with the heavy layering of strings really touches on Zimmer's style, and when the playfulness comes in, it reminds me of Desplat's Golden Compass track "Lyra, Roger and Billy". The epic section had me reminiscing Horner's Braveheart, especially with the traditional Celtic sounding instruments.

All in all, a wonderfully composed piece.


Well, I feel special. <3 THis is amazing, very peaceful. Sounds like something that could be in an epic movie, anime, show, whatever. It has potential, and I applaud you with the million hands I never had....wait. Take that as a compliment, really. >>
Just pretend I have a million hands for now, and they are in fact clapping. kthxbai
