Hello everyone!
This is my very first composition and first submission to Newgrounds.
I made this piece over a year ago and was inspired by the game Shogun 2 to create something "epic". Or at least attempt to. =)
I have a bunch of newer creations that sound better than this one but I recently upgraded my computer and had to removed all music software. On top of that at the time I made them I was (and still am ) quite unfamiliar with parameter equalizers and the like so the sound quality was garbage.
This track also has many sound issues as well but was the only one out of the bunch that sounded... OK....ish. Sound quality wise that is. I apologize for any bleeding ears during the listening of this track and I promise once I get everything set back up I will fix the sound issues.
Constructive criticism is VERY welcome and very much needed especially because I plan on remaking this track in the future and want it to be the best it can be.
Hope you enjoy it!


Very nice composition :) One of those "life soundtracks"... a piece that will forever accompany your journey - may it dreamy, or "real". A shard of a conflicting reality, war-torn dimensions, and this is only the beginning.
Looking forward to hearing more from you :3

I have several other tracks I hope to upload soon so keep an ear out!=)

Good work sir. Really nice.

SimPhony responds:

Thank you very much! I'm glad you liked it.=)

Very Well done!

So emotional and epic at the same time, I love how u used the solo flute.
Before I read the description I really thought that this piece was inspired in Hans Zimmer's work
You know (because of the percussion ensemble and the predominant use of cellos with solo woods)
(it really sounded like King Arthur's theme... kinda)

Don't worry man... there was no bleeding ears this time :)

People find this review helpful!
SimPhony responds:

Thank you! Yeah, for the flute I was trying to find a substitute for an Asian themed woodwind instrument cause my current sound library lacks in that department. Hans Zimmer is one of my all time favorite composers, and in a sense, I was trying to capture the feel of his work but more along the lines of his Last Samurai OST rather than Arthur's. Though come to think of it, both Arthur and Last Samurai soundtracks do sound a lot alike in same areas. =)
Anyways, thanks again for the comment! It is very much appreciated!
