A piece I made for a certain academic "game" project I volunteered for last year. It was supposed to be more of an "experience" than a game, a bit like journey, featuring a lonely creature wandering through a cold mountainous region.

It was one of several attempts to make fitting music for the game. With this one I wanted to rather capture and describe the valley and the journey as a whole. I wanted to give it a certain grandeur and make it kinda driving but still capture the cold and the loneliness of the main character.

I would have made it longer, put some more variety into the percussion and made it loopable but as it wasn't selected by the team I left it to rot on my HDD, until I just discovered it again and decided to share it here.

I agree with lokion123, this deserves a longer version and I'd love to hear it!

Thank you. Well, maybe someday...

should still make a longer version,this is pretty f*cking good

F4LL0UT responds:

Thank you very much. Should an occasion arise I'd certainly consider extending the piece.

This is a really nice composition. It has pretty good quality, and was mixed VERY well. Nice volume automation on the string/brass swells. And adding that wind instrument floating around throughout was a great touch. nice job :)

F4LL0UT responds:

Thank you very much. Although personally I'm not sure the mix is that good. The string pad seems too prominent and compressed to me. I'm glad it's not that bad after all. :) And yeah, I'm also very happy how the woodwind turned out. It's a duduk, I love the instrument but sadly there's few occasions to make really good use of it (especially so it doesn't seem forced or just cheesy). It was quite an experiment in this case (at least for me) and I was absolutely thrilled by the resulting sound. :)

Wonderful :D

F4LL0UT responds:

Thanks. :)
