My vision for this track came from the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit trilogies. How the High Elves of the West were different from the rest, more inclined in the wars of Man and Dwarf, but yet they did not forget their original ways. Through song and voice they enchanted their homes and their woods, with every note the winds rustled through the emerald trees, and the birds whistled the tunes. I wanted to express that floating feeling of the Elves, how their voices were mysterious yet ethereal. Myself being an avid fan of nature, fantasy and all manner of strange and vivid worlds I wanted to translate that feeling in this track.

Very well. The arrangement behind the vocals is what made me have to say something. Very delicate writing, and the chord progression is very moody. This is quite enjoyable for a haiku of a track.

Grandvision responds:

Ah hello, thank you for your kind comment. I always want to make any instrument sound unique in a way, and play around with it, and that bears the same for vocal libraries too but there's still so much one can do. Now the only problem is to release longer tracks.

This is gorgeous! This paints a lovely picture. One thing I would say (and this is my inner vocalist speaking), while as Teddy said, you've used Shevannai beautifully and for the most part, the performance sounds realistic - make sure you keep in mind the limitations of human lungs! Singing along myself from the beginning for example, I would get to the second phrase (at 10 seconds) and then take a breath. You'd need to have lungs of steel to sing those continuous notes with that amount of force behind the voice, from 0:00-0:23, especially without your voice shaking! The only note I have. Keep making incredible work okay? Wonderful stuff.

Grandvision responds:

Ah thank you for the review. Yes I was having doubts that the singing itself wasn't authentic due to how long the notes play out, which is actually something I don't like to do, I like to make tracks more authentic these days but haven't used choir or vocals in the past a lot so have some things to learn, definitely know that it can't be sung that long, perhaps some minor breaks between would have helped, it's even better since there's an inhale option for this library that makes it even more authentic for breaks to happen.

holyshit you actually used Shevannai better than me, and the way it should be used. Damn, WHY IS THIS SO SHORT!!!!!? great work dude! sorry for the shit review.

Grandvision responds:

Haha, thank you my friend. Yes Shevannai is a great library, it just makes me want to create beautifully sounding vocal soundtracks. I want to utilize this program a lot more in future works, with longer tracks of course. The reason this was a minute long is because it was for an Express Yourself contest on another website, and the maximum length was only 1 minute. I might expand on this track in the future, we will see. :)
