you step outside and breathe in the fresh air. an unexplored path lies before you - where will it take you?


Notes: Written in 1.5 hours as a respite from my NGADM piece. And then it turned out to be really good. I seriously love the melody at 1:05. Sure, my handling of cinematic/orchestral elements is still rather sloppy, but you can't argue with my melodies. >:D


I felt like I was in an anime beach village with meadows and stuff. Like JRPG beginning of your adventure kind of stuff before everything goes bad.

Honestly, that is my favorite type of JRPG music. I would play an entire JRPG where nothing ever went bad and you could just listen to happy music all the time.

Thanks for dropping by :-)

Super cheery as if i'm going on some adventure or even just simply biking to the store! Melodies were marvelous and i loved the atmosphere in this one.

Also it's not THAT sloppy i'll tell you that :P

johnfn responds:

Yes, the great grocery store adventure! :D

I guess recently I've been listening to a lot of cinematic put together by people way better than me, so I'm kinda nit picky. Glad you liked it!

I love the mellow mood of it! Reminds me of my grandma's old farmhouse in rural Pennsylvania. :') The melodies at 1:05 are really beautiful, and the beat, while very unique, also helps with the progression of the piece. Excellent work, Johnfn! I still can't believe that this is a quick, 2-hour respite when it sounds like you've been working on it for ages! ;D

johnfn responds:

Thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed it! After a lot of practice I've become able to sketch out an idea for a song really rapidly. It's all the little details that end up taking the bulk of the time. (Like that transition at 1:05 for instance... I'm surprised you didn't call me out on that xD)

The funny thing about the beat is that the melody I ended up with in the second half was in 3/4, which I almost never use. So I really had no idea what to do for the beat and kinda randomly did stuff until it sounded ok. heheh.

Thanks again for dropping by!
