Here is my latest original song called Eclipse. I created the melody whilst improvising on the harp and decided to go further with it and turn it into a little song.

Lyrics (and translation):

Brila Luno (Bright Moon)
El kie vi iras? (Where do you go?)
Oh please return to us

Ĉiela pluvo (Celestial Rain)
Falas de la nuboj (Falls from the Clouds)
Our people once knew joy

Eklipso de la Koro (Eclipse of the Heart)

Awesome :P

etherealwinds responds:

Thank you Rhys!

Great track :D! Jus.. great! Loved the instruments, it has a really nice melody and calming feel. And the vocals!! They were just too perfect for this. It fitted right into into the track. This would be such an awesome track to have as a theme song for a movie or something :O. I was disappointed that it was so short though. I felt like the ending came too abrupt on me, though that's probably because I was enjoying the track so much. That's the only negative I'm able to take from this track. I really REALLY wished it was like 1 - 2 min longer with a second verse.
Awesome work anyways :D. Absolutely adored it.
4.5 stars

My thanks to you! As I said before, I felt personally that this was all the piece needed. It was more just a snippet of how I felt at the time of writing and it felt complete to me, despite it being short. To have made it longer would require adding something that didn't fit well personally. :} I'm glad you liked it though!

Truly a beautiful piece :)

etherealwinds responds:

Thank you so much!

The harp is one of my most favorite instruments to mess around with, it's unfortunate I can't play a real one, hell I can't even afford one. I stick with east west samples. Getting an authentic melody going with a harp is hard, especially with harmonics in it. Really great voice, but it feels like it could be sung a little higher to harmonize with the harp. I really wanted it to be longer as well, the triplet chorus coming in was amazing.

etherealwinds responds:

Sorry that it's not longer!! Forgive me. Thank you for listening :)

I like the muffled sounding rain at the start. It added quite a bit to the piece. I would have liked to have heard it just fade a bit more to the background when the vocals started, rather than fading out completely. But otherwise, awesome sounding vocals, my only qualm with this piece, is that it is too short.

etherealwinds responds:

Sometimes I like to keep pieces shorter when I feel I've put everything I can into that certain piece, rather than making it longer for the sake of it being longer and it having parts that don't fit, you know? ^.^ I'm glad you liked it!
