Made for The Underground Collective

FD:

Wow. OK. This track took about 2 months to make, stretched between real life commitments and what-not, but it was well worth it. It also marks my very first collab with fellow composer LucidShadowDreamer, someone I've been looking forward to compose something with for quite a long time, so there you have it! Quite possibly the longest collab I've ever done here on NG and it feels great. We wanted to encapsulate a story with a very spiritual atmosphere, like a pilgrimage towards a holy place. I was personally inspired by the video game Journey in terms of setting and music, since I very much enjoyed thatgamecompany's games and have always been an inspiration for me. What can I say, this has been a great experience for both of us and I hope you enjoy the grand sum of our sweat and tears over these 2 months in the making.

LSD:

Oh wow! It took a long while to get this work finished xD
But man, was it worth it!!
This is the first time I've collaborated with Forgotten Dawn, but I definitely hope it won't be the last one (and I doubt it will be). In my opinion, we were able to work really well together, which is what made it possible to bring to a composition of this calibre. Personally, I think FD stood for around 70% of the work (especially as he is responsible for the production), but even so I'm incredibly happy I could be a part of this process, and The Underground Collective.
I don't know if I want to say too much more, as that might ruin the listening experience :3

That said, the cover art for the track was made by Acrylla:

Now, please enjoy!

EDIT: We've had the honor to share over Twitter this track with Mr. Austin Wintory, author of Journey's fantastic, awespiring soundtrack, whom he expressed his approval. Thank you senpai for noticing us! :D

Reviews


Just lovely. This might be better categorized under Cinematic or Classical though!

ForgottenDawn responds:

Hey, thank you! Sure, will do. We weren't actually sure under what genre we'd release the track. It's surely Orchestral, but I guess Cinematic would be the closest thing.


I utterly adore this composition! This was clearly inspired by Journey and you completely nailed it! My only complaint is the tremolo strings at 2:27 and 3:51 that just cut out to nothing, sounded a little odd and broke the flow. But everything else I loved! Great job!

ForgottenDawn responds:

Thank you, we're so glad it reminded you of Journey right ahead :D We'll also be more careful about those transitions next time. Thanks for your review!


Great job!

Thanks!


I usually can't stand long tracks, but I absolutely love this piece. This is by far one of the most beautiful orchestral songs I've ever heard, and it hardly, if at all, repeats any melodies from what I heard.
