My little submission for the June NAC - Summer Cheer!

My summer cheer is a bit more laid back.

This was a lot of fun to make.

This song won 1st place in the June NAC! ^_^


great cheerful immersive sound.. reminds me of an artsy film - like an early bitey of brackenwood type with no volume.. just the music - not too much difection with it but short and sweet :)



TheBenjerman responds:

Why thank ye for your kind review good sir!

Was great. Loved the choice of instruments and the use of strings for that little climax part. However, I couldn't help but feel like it needed another, fuller climax bit near the end. Maybe an accompanying choir or something to go along with the strings.

TheBenjerman responds:

Thanks! I certainly could have added a lot more to this piece but I wanted to keep it as simple as possible. Just playing around with textures for now, I'll throw you guys some more in-depth pieces a bit later.


This song makes the scenario of a wolf pup kind of bumping around the inside of the den discovering new things as it goes along. Thanks for the image

TheBenjerman responds:

Hmm, I wonder what he runs into at 0:43?

Thanks for the review!

5 stars! Well done ^^ And really nice mixing of the piano. I would love to know what you used as plugins.

TheBenjerman responds:


This was made using East West sounds (don't quite remember which ones), the Kontakt library and Alicia's Keys for piano.

Excellent. What really made it work was all the subtle but important touches with the different instruments that say hello and then bow right back out ... the bass pluck here and there, the string chords, piano ... etc.

Only complaint is I didn't like the sound of the instrument that's doing most of the little arpeggiated chords (guitar, I imagine?). Just sounds overly dry and dead. Overall though, couldn't fully detract from the overall pleasantness of the track. Very well done.

TheBenjerman responds:

Thanks for the review! If you're referring to the instrument that played throughout (including during the string section) then yes that was a guitar, I'll look into it.

Thanks again, I appreciate it!
