I really enjoyed making this song! Initially I was going to tell a short story along with the song, and there was even a different title to this piece. However, I decided against that and thought that it would be more interesting to leave this one open to interpretation by making it somewhat ambiguous.

Since this is something I hardly ever do, I would really like to hear your own take on this song, what you think it is based on or is about. :)

This would fit an RPG very well, almost horribly well

I'm getting a wintery town that is open to strangers, with a lot of nice and hardworking people along with an inn that's home to all kinds of festivities

Favorited, sir

Neon-Bard responds:

Thanks Malifex!

I like your interpretation of the song, very nice! Thanks for listening. :)

It fits together well and sets the mood for a terrific story!

Neon-Bard responds:

It's always good to know that I've been able to achieve that particular goal of setting the appropriate mood! Thanks! :)

Speaking about JRPGs, it reminds me most of Secret of Mana, because of the chromatic percussion and the mystic mood. The synth lead seems a little out of place amongst all of those orchestral instruments I think. Not that it sounds bad.

Neon-Bard responds:

There's a game I haven't played in a long, long time. I actually can't even remember the soundtrack to Secret Mana, so perhaps I should go back and check it out again!

I can see what you mean about the synth I used, it is a bit of a misfit in some aspects. but in others I think it shines quite nicely. Thanks for the review SourJovis! :)

This would really be great for a JRPG of some kind or another LOL. This is great! Sounds like something you'd get out of a Square Enix or Level 5 soundtrack!

Neon-Bard responds:

That's awesome to hear! The fact that you're comparing this to something out of a Square Enix or Level 5 soundtrack means a lot! Thanks for listening Aero. :)

When I listen to this song I see a frozen city located inside a cavern where the villagers are hard at work. the echoing bells give sort of a cave vibe.
Very nice composition Neon! Can't wait to hear what you'll write next.

Neon-Bard responds:

I really like the image of an underground city encased in ice, with the citizens toiling on with work! Thanks for listening Mattashi, I appreciate your take on the song! :)
