Edit: I have deleted everything written here previously.

I wanted to try different drum lines this time. You may or may not agree with it but we have to experiment. My original drum lines were taiko ensemble which goes fine with this type I think. I can see many flaws out there now but would love to hear from a listener's perspective. Please leave comments for any improvement.

very nice song

Nice song. Very tranquil and hypnoticing. I like the bells in combination with the piano and the echo on it. Makes it sound like one instrument. The choir sounds very much like a monk choir chant. Fits the theme. The violins are a welcome addition as well. Just because they sound well in combination with the rest.

Emid responds:

Gratitudes dear friend. I used free cello - Blakus cello. If you haven't tried I recommend it over all available paid cello libraries.

This takes me back. I like that you chose a slight difference approach in style from your previous entry. The percussion and voice makes this sound like Enigma and I’m surprised that no one has mentioned that yet. I don’t have much to say other than I enjoy this to be quite refreshing to my ears as they are worrisome from all the noise I’ve been writing lately.

Emid responds:

Glad you enjoyed. I have mainly this cinematic ambient orchestral style in my mind to experiment as soon as time allows me. Somewhere I mentioned I used Shimmer reverb which is very hard to control without gating. This song is an experiment without gating and although am not happy with the structuring, I am happy how it came out. Technically it was hard.
And yes...sorry for late reply. Busy with my newborn baby.

Phenomenal, that piano in the begining is just so powerful! I love your ambient-epic bizarre stuff!

Emid responds:

Always thankful to you.

That was a wonderful start... Matter of fact the whole song was wonderful!!! I didn't really have any trouble with the drums, I think they sound great! at 1:37 that part gave me chills...
All in all it's a well made song.
Good Job!

Emid responds:

Thanks a lot ET16 :)
