Gillenium responds:

It does :) I'm glad you liked it!

Awesome song!

It has a little bit of a, "Hitman", feel to it...Jesper Kyd makes some awesome music...you sound like his kind of style. I like it alot...keep up the good work!

Gillenium responds:

Glad you liked it! You won't believe this, but a director buddy of mine compared me to Jesper Kyd a few weeks back... and he's a Hitman fan, too :D Thanks for the review!

this is good

i like this, but im having trouble visualizing it. i dont know its probably just me.
not my favorate out of the series, but not bad nonetheless.

Gillenium responds:

This isn't my favorite part either, although it seems to have really caught on with quite a few people. It was intended only as transitional material between Part 1 and 3, although looking back, I think it's better than part 3. This whole series was based on being in Canaan Valley. This is the "darkness" part of the trip. When I stayed at a rented cabin with my girlfriend and her family, we went out with a flashlight in pitch darkness. We went out to look at the stars and boy did we get a good view! I could even see the milky way. That is the original visualization for this song. Thanks for the review!

Very Good.

I have to agree with some of the other reviewers on here and say that i am really feeling a silent hill vibe in this track, and i'm lovin it. Out of all the tracks i actually prefer this one.

Anyways, great job.

Good luck to you in the future!


Gillenium responds:

Hey, thanks a bunch! Yeah, a lot of people seem to think this one is the best part of the series. The opinion of my listeners is often the complete opposite of my own. But, when people enjoy it, it doesn't matter! I'll get Chapter 5 (the final one) uploaded in a day or two.

Aww man...

Really a great track you´ve got there. But question- where is part 1? I can´t seem to find it.
I love flutes, and you did a great work doing this. I would like to know a story in this, as it seems like there is. I´ve seen you on the Ambient top for a while! I think this really deserves it :)

Gillenium responds:

Part one is here, too. I hid it...

The story... Well, the whole thing is based on my experiences at a cabin in Canaan Valley, WV. I often base my songs on visual things.. as strange as that may sound. Just about every song on this page is based around ideas or imagery from a movie, video game, or place. Thanks for the review!
