This is a song I wrote converted to mp3. It is for a dramatic battle in a game. The person requesting the music said they wanted it to sound exciting, but not really intense.
I was amazed at how many melodies and moods could be built off the chord progression used in this song. This song has generally the same chord progression the entire time, with a couple small variations such as switching suspensions around or extending a chord to last an extra measure.
There is an instrument in this song that pops up here and there in the texture until it bursts out in melody at the climax of the song, which is approximately half way through. This song also has a piano solo.
