The story behind this one is pretty simple. I saw a post about the Etherealwinds Harp plugin, remembered that I already 'own' it, and decided that I should use it in a song. The harp sounds wonderful in my opinion, and you can get it for free here:


Of course, the samples were recorded by Etherealwinds himself, using his old harp, and through some technological magic it was turned into an awesome VST instrument by Samulis!

I made this short little song pretty quickly. I wasn't going to upload it at first (partly because it's a pretty lazy song; the percussion is just a ready loop which comes with Kontakt), but the track sounds nice enough that I think you might enjoy it. It's also a bit of a deviation from my usual style, and I figured that a change of pace is always nice :)

That's it, really :'3


Interesting piece. The percussion that comes in at around :25 seems somewhat furtive compared to the flowy and full-sounding harp, though. The flute and brass that come in later are also more on the harp's wavelength, but they remain underneath the harp in the mix, especially the brass. I understand this is a pretty casual project, but I also thought that the loop wasn't great (from a compositional perspective, not a technological one). Still, overall I like it. Hope you get out of school soon (if you aren't already)! ^^

Yeah, I agree that the harp stands out the most. It was an intention decision, as I wanted it to be the main element, but in retrospect, maybe I should've added more focus on the other intruments. This was indeed just a quick production anyway :)
The flute is indeed on a similar wavelength to the harp, which is why I mixed it to the side. But maybe I didn't put it far enough, and should've made it a bit louder too.
I don't have a problem with the loop, personally though. That said, there is an original version with somewhat of an ending here: https://instaud.io/px2

I am theoretically out of school, but I still have 2 essays that I need to write before I start responding to messages I've been sent!

Hope you're doing well :)

P.S. Ummm... What brass are we talking about exactly o.O?

Whoa, the harp really does make a nice tune for it. It makes it sound like a music that could be in an adventure or something. amazing. Maybe you should try combining the harp and piano sometime?

I think I've done it a few times, but it has never been the main focus of a piece. I could probably do that sometime! Not a bad idea at all :)
Thank you for yet another nice review :3

This is awesome :D
