Having had an awesome time on our first collab, Computer112 and I decided to do a second one. Thus, here is "From Ancient Hills", a cinematic-orchestral piece featuring Oboe and Guitar (unlikely companions, I know).

I composed up to 1:14, then Computer took the theme on an new path and finished it off. Feel free to comment and leave your feelings on the piece below. Constructive criticism is most welcome, though if you could be specific to which part (or whose part) you are referring to, that would be great. :)

Thanks for listening!


You guys did a really good collaborative project. Seem like you two understand each other well enough to execute matters in pleasant ways.

Baroque, Renaissance and somewhat Contemporary styles. Well mixed. Well arranged.

I strongly agree with Pointrick. If I didn't look at the description then I wouldn't have noticed which part is your (Samulis, right?) and which is his (computer112). It is almost like it has been written by only a person. A professional composer.

However we have two professional composers here I'm afraid. :)

samulis responds:

Hahaha. I'm glad you had trouble finding the transitions. We both write in different styles that both draw from the same elements throughout different periods... while I draw a bit more from Romantic-era, he draws more from contemporary. It evens out nicely with a great mix of feels.

Very cool. Great progression and great percussion, again. It's funny that you can't hear that a second person finished the composition. Great mood. I don't want to search for anything bad in this composition, couldn't find anything the first 2 times I listened. So I'm giving it 5 stars.

Thanks for the review.

Certainly... I hope some game developers on here will find a use for it in their games or whatnot. The main genre I work in is generally called "Orchestral-Cinematic" due to its modified contemporary sound.

56 listens and no review?

The fuck is wrong with newground listeners can't even leave a review!!?? I loved it guys! I'm a big classical nut even though I play metal and all that jazz. I still love me some classical! I love the melody and the build up into the end. The looping is awesome too! Makes me want to waltz with my bitches all night long! Keep it up dudes! If you got a chance check out my tracks!

Lol... thanks for the review. I am glad you like the song, I'll try to check out your stuff if I have some free time. I'd reckon the beginning would be good to waltz to. :D

Thanks again,
