Twilight on Blackwolf Mount

Download this song!

Author Comments

The lone rider rode his way up the snow-covered side of Blackwolf Mountain, which casts a foreboding vigil across the flat plains around. Atop, he finds the lonely mementos of travelers and ages long forgotten... there he makes his camp and looks out across the vast land as a winter storm comes in to give him company over the night. Darkness falls.

I may or may not eventually make this into some longer piece... the struggle to find a name took long enough already. XD

Created using Finale 2009 with a selection of Virtual Instruments by EastWest and QuantumLeap.

Enjoy, and please leave your feelings on the piece.

Hmm I hear some peaking issues at the beginning.. tsk tsk..

and haha it's likea western and winter combined.. interesting use of choirs as well. The flute had an odd click at the begging of it though.. methinks with a few better samples and some better mastering on your part this could have been a much better piece - interesting piece though!

Thanks for the review, Chron.

I'm still trying to master how to master (no pun intended). The samples are fine (EWQL VIs technically), I think, but I certainly could have done more with using them to their fullest extent.

Good song

I like how you always manage to create images and sceneries in my head. Usually, I'm a very uncreative person. I'm not very good at creating stories or sceneries. But while listening to your songs I always have some ideas rushing through my mind.

This time it's based in a western atmosphere, much like it is portraied in a Sergio Leone movie (maybe because the whistling sound reminds me of Ennio Morricones songs for the Leone movies). Some cowboys are coming into a town. They are dirty because they traveled very far. The townsmen are not very fond of those figures as they usually mean a lot of trouble.

But the twist here is that those cowboys are actually the good guys, haha.

Anyway, this is a really nice song. The only thing that you can do to make it better is to make it longer. ^^

It seems all my songs are too short. XD

I am really pleased that my songs let your imagination loose. As I write, my imagination generally goes all over the place and kicks into overdrive (kinda like when I write constructive reviews) with new ideas and paths to take. Eventually my mind gets tired and I end up writing an ending. I have a feeling that part of my style echoes back to the late Romanticism with music filled to the brim with imagery.

Thanks for the review.

And forth they went

This does sound like something you would hear while exploring a mountain cave and trying to find the person who is rumored to live there. You find them yet they ask you to leave and explain they live there for they were strong and quick in defeating their rivals when they were assassin and have retired yet feel that cave is the only place they will ever get peace from kings and queens asking for him to help. Really smooth and classical tune.

I like the slight whistle like sound I hear that is mostly a flute sounding instrument. The vocals are nice and give a feel of having found something most wonderful and calming. The wind pipe sounds are also nice and kind of make me think of Final Fantasy. The guitar here sounds really classical and nice on the ears too.

Overall, wonderful adventure feeling song.

samulis responds:

Excellent imagery... I almost like yours better than mine. XD

I really had more fun doing the instrumentation than writing the melody, which is actually an older one I created about half-a-year ago (I've been trying to finish a lot of old pieces lately). I'm honestly really glad it worked out well, at least in your ears. :)

Thanks for the great review,

my beloved friend liked this as he slept.

I feel no shame giving this song my endorsment

samulis responds:

Lol. I'm glad you... and your friend like this. :)
