This is a tune I've had for nearly three years. Back in 2014, I was trying out my first 'slow' tune in FLS while keeping with the themes of my Ikusa project. Several current melodies, most prominently being the "We are what we choose to be" moment, originated here.
But I didn't submit it. In fact, I only shared it with one person - my friend Natalie, who had helped me in many ways for a long time. I gifted this to her that Christmas season, in return for her very creative cards that she would sometimes send.
Now, after going back to it and not making any major changes, I felt it was time to share it with everyone. Natalie agreed, and while I was hoping to have a longer version 3 of this, I never really improved on this version 2. I hope she doesn't mind - after all, this is the important version.
So that's how the project ended up. It began as my attempt to make a slow trailer bgm for any game teasers I made. The music itself would fit wonderfully, but I've yet to make any trailers for it. That may come later, or I may leave this as it stands and make another. In any case, here it is - quite possibly my most unique work, and the top of the best 5 I've ever done.
"Time never allows us to slow...so we'll be running for a while."
