Penumbra's Fate

Download this loop!

Author Comments

I was drawing a while ago and created a character named Penumbra. He is half angel and half demon. I was inspired by the definition of the word.
Penumbra: A partial shadow, as in an eclipse, between regions of COMPLETE SHADOW AND COMPLETE ILLUMINATION.

Belonging neither to heaven nor hell, Penumbra is cursed with a timeless fate... to wander the Earth alone, unbeknownst to its inhabitants. A spiritual being, which cannot affect the physical dimension.

This is a song I worked on a couple years ago in Reason 5.0. I never finished it because my computer broke and I can't hook up my old hard drives to the computer I use now to retrieve the data because it's a different kind of computer. Thought I'd upload something for you to enjoy while I'm suffering from writer's block. x)

This song has no correlation to the game Penumbra.

Not a loop, but set as a loop so it will play automatically.
Inspired by Thomas Newman.


This is absolutely beautiful and haunting at the same time.

Thank you so much. :)

Beautiful Composition! It reminded me of the theme from American Beauty in the beginning so I can see how you got your inspiration from Thomas Newman :)
Nice work

AshleyAlyse responds:

That's exactly what inspired me! The music from that movie. :D Thank you, Mattashi! :3

Simple but very emotive and nice. Good work -as usual e.e-

AshleyAlyse responds:

Thank you kindly! :)

This has a beautiful simplicity to it. I enjoy the chordal progressions and the subtle ominous sound that lurks behind the triumphant melody.

AshleyAlyse responds:

Glad you find it so. Thank you. :)

A penumbra is also 'implied powers in law'. For example, you have a right to breathe, though it doesn't say that in the law. Since you have a right to live, and breathing is required to live, it is IMPLIED that you have a right to breathe. However, it is only implied. Your local government COULD theoretically outlaw breathing.

I like this loop. It's sad, pretty, and enlightening. Just like... Like... A penumbra.

AshleyAlyse responds:

Wah, well, that certainly is interesting. x) Thank you for the review. :3
