This piece was originally composed for a project about a year ago, and I've now decided to put it up. It's one of my absolute favorite works in terms of color and texture, combining some elements from the style of the Airscape score with some elements from a more romantic tonal language.

The scene: The sun rises over a green, rolling landscape. A medieval village sits upon a small river, running slowly down from the high mountains in the distance. A forest lies among the hills to the north, and farms stretch far and wide. A manor house sits on a high hill, overlooking the village.

Uses EWQL SO, Hollywood Brass, and features yours truly on alto recorder.


If you ever stop making music, I'll beat you to death with a recorder. This is gorgeous and well-defined.

samulis responds:

Well, at least that'd be better than being beat to death by a lot of things. :P

I'm glad you like it! I don't think I will stop making music now.

Splendid piece. Very soothing. Impeccably produced.

That flute(?) is spot on.

Beautiful composition.

5/5 - Would start a family, build a farm, raise cattle and die happy to this.

samulis responds:

Hahaha, thanks Alex!

It's a recorder, so yeah, more or less a flute (although don't tell any Musicologists I said that).

Happy farming. :)

Yup. Gorgeous stuff here, and your description along with its title is spot on. Besides the great composition, your production here is very realistic! No complaints

samulis responds:

Wahoo! Glad you like it, Phono! Those recorder lessons are finally paying off.
