If I had known in time to enter the first round of the NGMT, this would've been my entry. But...I started adding and adding and eventually the song turned in to something quite more involved.

Instruments (along with techie data for you geeks out there)
-Piano (Edirol Orchestral)
-Violins (Session Strings)
-Cellos (SS)
-Bass (SS)
-Percussion Kit (The Total Composure Library)
-Tubular Bells (Generic SF2)
-Horns (Sonatina Symphonic Orchestra)
-Flute (SSO)

I'm not going to classify it as Cinematic because, frankly, it's not some extremely dramatic pounding arrangement. This song is mean to make you think about your choices in life and relax, take it all in, and just breathe.

Lovely opening with the piano makes the imagination work, as these songs should. Nice lead in with the strings. Reminds me of the good old fashion video games that i used to play as a young man. It gets better as i listen. WONDERFUL Cello work. This is going on my favorites. I knew i came back to NG for a reason. I'm glad to hear people making the classical genre proud. You are indeed doing that. I will be adding this to my favorites.


The tags hit the nail on the head. Simple.Pretty.Beautiful.
I love the effect the strings have the piece, they just add so much to the song. Empowering the emotion with the high strings in the beginning and then adding contrast with the lower notes throughout the song.
Very enjoyable, keep it up!

I think you did a wonderful jobon this piece keep up the great work.
