Took about a week to compose (32 hours total time) and 4 hours to record and master. The instruments you are hearing are high-quality samples of a Steinway B model Piano, and Violins (unsure of the model so I won't mention it).

Everything is played by me using a digital piano with the East West Symphony Orchestra VST (which I purchased) through MIDI on FL studio, and recorded on the same.

Inspired by this piece of art: http://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/wishaponapixel/over-the-horizon



So much emotion! I really want to use this in a video. Sounds like a composition from a Hayao Miyazaki movie

Love it.

Really beautiful song. Very emotional and professional sounding. Easily fits a large production film score.

Wow. This is beautiful. The beginning instantly reminded me of Erik Satie's "Gymnopédie No.1" (Same thing 2:17. Perfect lenght on the break before that too). I love that change at 0:57 =>, same thing with 1:17!
In fact, this whole piece is amazing!
Well done, and good luck int the contest! :'D

Thanks for your review! Yes the beginning does sound similar to Gymnopédie No. 1, which was actually a song I used to play when I was little! (Though if you try and play the melody of Gymnoédie using my chords it doesn't work heh, I know, I tried when I noticed). That's because I'm playing in the hypolydian mode (or aeolian) so it actually sounds major but it's actually slightly minor (I did this to make the transitions into the new keys more subtle and it worked quite well!).

Beautiful work!
