I'm imagining a man who will die in 10 seconds and is looking back on his life and thinking about his loved ones. That imagery legitimately moved me to tears.

LunyAlex responds:

I'm humbled and very glad you found something genuine in the track. That stands at the core of why I enjoy expressing feelings through music!


This doesn't feel like a sad death soundtrack focusing on a death of a person, but more like a situation where the protagonist feels defeated and slowly regains his believe in himself.

...something like that.

Either way, I love it.

LunyAlex responds:

I can definitely see your interpretation fitting. Duly noted. Thank you for the feedback!

This song is beautiful and definitely cinematic. I love it! The only reason why I'm giving it 4.5 stars instead of 5 is because the transition from powerful back to peaceful at around 1:05 to 1:07 seems a bit awkward. I think cutting the powerful part suddenly and then drawing back into the peaceful can work well for this song if it is done in a more dramatic way, for example, by adding a drum on that last note rather than just a stop on the guitar. The way it is, you can hear the reverb effect from the guitar once it cuts off, and that just doesn't sound quite right. Just my thought though. To me the rest of the song sounds perfect, and it would definitely make for a great theme song to an emotionally charged movie. Well done!

One of my new favorites, btw

LunyAlex responds:

Thank you very much. It means a lot. I'll definitely take a look at that transition, try to smooth things out a bit.

The guitars sound really beautiful, i love the composition and the mixing is really good...on some parts i feel there is just too much low frequencies getting somethings muddy.
I dont really like how you return to the peaceful parts without a good transition.
The song is really emotional and talks to whoever hears it...i love the guitar melody.
Awesome job Luny!

LunyAlex responds:

Thank you for the feedback and kind words! The feedback was very helpful and constructive and the kind words... well... I just like reading those... :3
