Experimenting with eastern instruments more. Some inspiration from Utarra-Kuru's East Wind album for the koto and some inspiration in the opening flute melody from Sega's games. The rest is improvisation.

It was much more peaceful in my head though; I don't know why it ended up sounding sad and dark. I blame Halloween coming up at the time I was composing this.

Originally I was going to make this longer, but it's been sitting in my drive for a year now unfortunately. I should start setting a deadline for wrapping my projects up, so I don't keep getting stuck on old stuff for so long.

Smooth! I love koto. But it sounds more preoccupied than sad & dark to me. Maybe if the drums were softer. like more ethnic style, it might lose that sense of urgency. Just sounds to me like someone (In Japan?) trying to meet a deadline. Cool, favorited it.

Yeah, this was a project I sort of cut off after a year of inactivity. There was definitely a lot more I wanted to do with it but I hit that creative hump so to speak.

I love your style.

Thanks
