This piece is one of my more atmospheric pieces and probably quite sorrowful too, however it's one that I wanted to keep quite short. Usually I like to perform vocals in my compositions, but somehow this piece in my opinion just didn't call for vocals.

Hope everyone is well!

first song that made me shed a tear of happiness sorrow and peace thank you very much

etherealwinds responds:

Thank you! :)

Wow this is really great! I love that piano. :)

etherealwinds responds:

Thank you very much! :)

Ahhh....The piano in this is so incredibly beautiful. There is nothing quite like high, atmospheric piano parts, and the parallel fourths added a likeable color. The synth pad contributed a very fitting warmth.

I do wish that this was longer. I can imagine a beautiful cello line singing over the top in the next part, along with some subtle harp and violin harmonics for a chilling effect... But this is your song, not mine. :)

You should try more like this. I'd love to hear you make another piece in this style but with vocals sung on pure vowels with a healthy dose of reverb serving as a sort of organic pad. Not overbearing, but ethereal and lush. I love hearing the voice used as If it were an instrument.

Keep it up!

etherealwinds responds:

You've given me a lot of nice ideas for another song!! Thank you Trevor. All the best :)

Like that you kept that Synth pad all the way through. Nice piano. Good job!

etherealwinds responds:

Thank you kindly!

I like the mood at the beginning and the instruments. The melody is good, too, but this piece ends way too suddenly. I think you should do more with it! I was waiting the whole 90 seconds for that moment when it transitions from ominous to epic, but that moment never came. Please continue working on this. It has potential. ;)

etherealwinds responds:

For me, the piece represents pretty much exactly that. The moment of 'epic' simply doesn't come. A feeling of loneliness, being lost. 'Futility' as I named it. I take your comments on board! Thank you :)
