Comments:
---- So here I am again after a long absence from Newgrounds. I've decided to return with a bang and as a result, I'm uploading a song which I believe is honestly one of my best tracks, and also the one which I worked hardest and longest on.

This track will serve 2 purposes, It will first and foremost serve as my submission to the Orchestral MAC 2012, hosted by BrokenDeck. It's a pretty large competition with some of the greatest names on Newgrounds regards Orchestral music (such as PeterSatera, Bosa, Supersteph54, samulis, etc), so I doubt I'll make it that far, but I can honestly say I gave it my all.

The song's second purpose will be as the Title track of my new album (Eye of the Dragon) which I will be uploading on my Bandcamp Account (erikscerri.bandcamp.com)
. I am uploading this Title track on Newgrounds as a preview of this album, which will be available soon.

Regards the song's production, this track is a result of 41 hours, 38 minutes of work. It is also my longest track to date, and definitely my most detailed. I spent a lot of time humanizing, desyncing, harmonizing and EQing to attain as much perfection as I could. I know quality isn't such a high factor in this MAC, but I still tried to give as much realism as I could.

Regards instruments and orchestration, I used: violins, violas, cellos, double basses, flutes, oboes, clarinets, bassoons, french horns, trumpets, trombones, tubas, harp, piano, alto singers, bass singers, tenor singers, 2 solo singers, a range of percussions (cymbals, timpanis, godzilla hits, djembe, etc), koto, accoustic guitar, xiao, dizi, electric bass, clean electric guitar, glockenspiel and probably some others which I'm forgetting.

As for credits, I can't list all the people who helped me with this here, because I'd never finish, but I'd primarily like to thank Supersteph54 for giving me a shit-tonne of criticism and tips and Logical-Defiance for his help.

So that's it I guess. 267 Patterns, 128 Automations, 67 Play Instances, 164 Bars and 41 hours of work spread over 2 months. I sure hope you enjoy listening to this as much as I enjoyed making it. Feedback is very much appreciated!

Enjoy!!!

I haven't heard such a marvelous song quite a time. Beethoven is no match for you.

Way to go with this song!
I enjoyed it, and its obvious without you telling us, you spent a bit of time on it.
A bit of the song after the 2 min mark reminded me of the " The Blood of Cu Chulainn ".
All in all, great work.


Echo responds:

I did indeed spend quite a lot of time on this. Glad you enjoyed it ;)
