Where to begin...

Well, this song is for Bosa's "Dreams of Splendor" contest. I set out to write something meaningful, something that had substance and was truly a reflection of who I am. I will give what I intended to convey through the music, though by no means is it limited to the following:


Life, the beginning. Beautiful, full of joy and light, but still fraught with moments of peril and suffering. It is a journey that is incomplete, a path that you cannot reach the end of without taking a leap into the unknown.

Death, noted especially by the horns. It is somber, yet contains the hope of something greater than itself and all that came before it.

Rebirth, the culmination of life and death. All is seen unveiled, life in its truest and fullest sense. What once was imperfect is now perfect, what once was broken is now whole.


This song is about life, death, and rebirth. It is about putting away one's former way of life and embracing something even more beautiful. This song is about love, sacrifice, and baptism.

This all being said, please take it as you will. That's the beautiful thing about music - what you get out of this piece may be entirely different than I intended, yet still relevant and good.


I had originally intended on adding lyrics to this piece, but in the end decided not to include them. I will, however, include the relevant lyrics here:

Dreams fade, hope remains
Falling into endless night a light is
Calling me beyond the grave

I am a formless wasteland
Let there be
I am a formless wasteland
Breathe life into me
Set fire to my soul

When violent storms surround me
The earth cries out in pain
The heavens fold around me
Will I ever be the same

Don't let me be the same

Sing, my soul!
Sing, my soul!


form 1:30-2:00 the pitch was to low, had to put speaker on 80% to hear it
pitch was a little to high from 3:10- 4:00 distracted form the other sounds

That's what you get when you don't over compress audio: dynamics! :)

This is really good. lol Nice work.

bassfiddlejones responds:

Thanks man!

No match when you jump into the ground...

I don't know what else I can say....may be you would want to add lyrics in a "lyrical" version.

bassfiddlejones responds:

Emid, good to hear from you! Thank you for the review, I think I may eventually do a lyrical version. You need to post more music!

You know the feeling when you eat something that's really good but beyond-your-capacity spicy? And then you get this headrush and sweat like crazy? And then when the meal is over and you're cooled down, you think to yourself... "Wow, that was amazing in a twisted way."

This to me was kind of the musical equivalent of that.
