This song started as a simple piano pattern. My sister was practicing piano, and she showed me a few bars that she'd written, so naturally we had to take it and turn it into a full 3 minute song. This is our first collaboration; Abel wrote the bulk of the melodies and I wrote most of the harmonies and background instruments. Utilizing both of our own musical strengths and influences, this is what we came up with.

Hope you enjoy!

This is a very wonderful piece that you and you brother has done. It would be an honor if you allowed me to use it in a game I am working on and of course I will give credit where credit is due. It a very beautiful song

Incredibly late getting back to you on this. But of course you can use it if you'd still like to. Just let me see the finished product! :)

Very pretty piece! Really nice melodies, and I like the use of woodwinds for those harmonies.
I think I'd have liked to hear some percussion and brass join in for the uplifting section starting at 2:03.
I probably would have gone over the top with that bit to make some in your face emotional stuff. But that's just me. Going without percussion was cool too, and fit the song nicely! :)
Goooood work

CainRedfield responds:

We debated the idea of adding percussion but in the end decided to keep it without. I think it would have been pretty cool with percussion though, maybe I'll try adding some percussion into my next piece :D. Thanks for the review mate, and glad you liked it!

Cool being able to do collaborations with your own brother! The title is fitting, and this sure has a cinematic feel to it. The style reminds me of Ludovico Einaudi, if you've heard of him. It's simple and quite uplifting. Good job!

CainRedfield responds:

Thanks! Yeah we had a lot of fun writing this one. Haven't heard of Ludovico Einaudi, but I'll definitely be sure to check him out!

I had a listen to all your tracks and this is my fav.
A simple, endearing quality akin to Yiruma. It's great that you work so well together!

CainRedfield responds:

Thank you so much. Being compared to Yiruma is a huge compliment, because River Flows In You holds so much personal meaning to me. I'm really happy you like it :)


CainRedfield responds:

Thanks, really glad you enjoyed it!
