This is actually called "Journey of a Teenage Composer," but I wanted to remove any bias against teenagers...

BEFORE YOU LEAVE NEGATIVE REVIEWS- there is a random cello staccato note towards the end that I forgot about (it's a glitch. It takes way to long to fix these things after exporting everything.) Also, I wish I'd added some suspended cymbal or something for transitions. End of rant

Anyway, this is a somewhat heartfelt cinematic piece. There are several recurring themes like doubt/uncertainty, hope, and nostalgia. This uses lots of instruments, nearly all orchestra instruments. Lots of piano arpeggios, some brass and lots of strings, a flute solo. Let me know if you liked it!

VST Plugins I own: EW Symphonic Orchestra Gold, EW Hollywood Brass Gold, Cinematic Studio Strings and Studio Piano, Soundiron Olympus Elements, Sonokinetic Ostinato, Native Instruments Monark, a few free effects and synth plugins

This was amazing, even for newgrounds standards where you mainly get people who are not so experienced in whatever field they are posting. yours however was of a great quality. love the smoothness of the transitions, the atmosphere you created and the way you used those instruments of yours. still some parts of the song remind me of night at the museum. lolz sorry if that didn't come out right.
