When I started writing this song it was supposed to be techno, which is why the creepy chime and echo stuff is in the intro. However I added more and more layers of strings into the intro and finally I was just like 'Okay, now this has to go somewhere EPIC". Only solution? Full Orchestra.
This is the second song I've made with Mixcraft 5 (so far the most awesome program ever) and it's VERY different from the last one. I started this song in September, and finished the whole thing except for the last like 8 measures, which I just couldn't get right. Finally I just got sick of it and shoved in an ending so I could say the song is done.
This is also the first fully orchestral song I've written, and I pretty much just packed in layers of everything, culminating in an epic blast of awesome. The guitar solo in the middle is actually me playing, and it was the first time I tried to record anything real on my computer, so the quality didn't turn out perfect--but it's decent.
Hope you enjoy!
