I wanted to simulate the act of perseverance in the face of hardship with this piece. The beginning represents sorrow, which slowly transforms into a drive to push on in spite of what has happened in the past.


The tune is very relaxing. It also reminds me of some of the tunes from Earthbound which were for taking a break or trying to relax and enjoy the game itself. I could see this song being used for an ending cutscene or midway through the game after something terrible happened and yet the heroes are refusing to give up and are going to keep going on their quest to stop the antagonists.

The drums are slow and sound rather tribal in rhythm. The brass instruments make me think of relaxing times. The violin (correct, yes?) is really smooth sounding. As for the entire rhythm coming together it creates a beautiful rhythm.

Overall, sounds fantastic and I can't think of any ways for this track to be improved.

relaxing. i enjoyed it.

filmy music..
i dont see this everyday at such a high quality rate.
the build up is kinda simple but seem out of place somehow, maybe bc of the instrument sounds..

Thank you for the review!

The beginning sounds a bit different because of the story I imagine going with it (seen in the description up top). I'm glad you think this is good quality! My goal is to make music that people like, so it makes me happy when people appreciate what I'm making.

Thanks again!

That's a very cool musical build. It has a strong creative feel to it. The keyboardy effects at the beginning feel a bit out of place since most of the piece is defined by acoustic instrumentation, with the awkward transition point being the overly loud note at 00:49. The beginning is entirely too quiet IMO, but that seems to be a normal volume range for classical pieces anyway. I feel like I just ascended from Proteus (visitproteus.com) to, um, whatever comes next. Grin. Nice plucked ending. I'd definitely like to see more music from you.

People find this review helpful!

Thanks for the review!

Yeah I guess those sounds do seem out of place. I was trying to make it a bit more interesting at the beginning since it was only strings, but next time maybe I'll do something else.

Positive reviews make my day, so thanks again!
