Please read the full description!!!

This project came to a startling halt because my computer couldn't handle this song (things got especially messy during the big theme bit). Once I get a better workstation, I'd like to revisit this song (and possibly this entire album) and push it to it's full potential.

This song takes inspiration from both Etherealwinds and Bosa. Etherealwinds has a great "world" style to his songs, with beautiful harps and pianos, as well as very ambient pads, while Bosa boasts epic orchestral scores. I tried to incorporate both styles into this song, but failed miserably. The climax was too short due to the limits of my crappy laptop, but I think the beginning was fantastic. Please let me know what you think!

Congrats, you learnt how to install Edirol Orchestral.

Lol except I didn't, loser. Nice try though.

This is a great chill piece!
Oh and my mother doesnt know either :/

larrynachos responds:

I thought moms were supposed to know everything :/

Thanks!

This is really good. It really does make me think of winter. Winter is a beautiful season, as is this song. I think this is a great piece of music, (the voices are also really cool.) and it really captures the season. Too bad I have no snow in St. Paul. Are you getting snow?

larrynachos responds:

Nope, no snow in Jordan. It feels like fall. I only had to wear a sweatshirt on my way to school, which was nice. Thanks for the review!

Oooo...I love the spacey intro. It's almost...ominous! I can definitely see how you were inspired by Etherealwinds. I loved the breathy whispering around 1:25 - how did you do that? It's very climactic, and that authentic snare really adds a lot to the mood. It progresses a little slowly, but that's all right. I loved the piano around 2:15 - 2:24...very ominous again, yet beautiful! I could definitely see how you could do more with this...too bad your computer was having issues! It's also too bad that the ending cuts off so suddenly, but maybe you could make it loop (?). Overall, though, great work, LN! Happy holidays. ;D

larrynachos responds:

The breathy whispers are a bunch of notes from Shevannai "Voices of the Elves" Kontakt library. It's meant to progress slowly :)

It wasn't supposed to cut off. I'm gonna re export it so it lingers a little bit longer and fades out.

My computer isn't having troubles; it's just not capable of the kind of songs I'm trying to compose.

Thanks for the review! Happy holidays ^^

Oh my god that was amazing. Beautiful work Larry! The atmosphere was so strong in this song it had me shell-shocked. And the whispering felt so real! God, this was so damn good. I wish I could get out a winter piece but my computer is in a little trouble hopefully I can get it fixed before the end of the season!

Keep this up Larry! You are magnificent when it comes to making orchestral and cinematic pieces. I hope to hear more within this genre. ^~^

larrynachos responds:

Oh man, you really liked it that much? This review makes me feel so good about myself :)

Sorry to hear about your computer. Once you get it fixed, make sure to make a winter piece, even if it's a little late :D

Thanks again!
