This is a track I made for Embertone's "Stranger Themes" contest that was held a while ago. I didn't end up winning anything, but I had fun making this theme! It is based off of a melody that someone called "Maniera Ism" made for the first round of the competition.

Embertone, for those of you who don't know, make some pretty cool VSTi, so you can check them out if you'd like:


I made this whole arrangement in 16 hours, right before the deadline for submissions, haha. So it's not as perfect as it could've been, but I'm still quite happy with the result! I'd be pleased to hear some of your thoughts and criticisms as well!

So please enjoy, and thanks for listening :D

Gets me thinking of Nightmare Before Christmas, or Barber of Fleet Street, but something else too... the melody feels familiar, the closest I get is the Mai HIME soundtrack I think... it has that same pace, melody and mystery, but picks up in a more orchestral, Tim Burton-like way. Not comparing to other pieces that aren't all that similar though: this sounds awesome. I love the atmosphere it builds up! Magical and intense at the same time. Music like this is definately your forte!

I agree that this has one of those "feels familiar" feels. The main melody (as in, not the chords or anything, just the very notes playing the melody at the start) was not made by me. This was part of a competition where you took other people's melodies and turned them into something greater :D

I can see the Danny Elfman (Tim Burton movies composer) comparion for sure, especially with the voice used, and the mystical vibe (+ the bells)! I'm really glad you enjoyed it ^___^
Thank you for another great review!

Very peaceful. I LIKE IT! :)

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Thank you, I'm glad you do!

Wow, just a quick drive-by, enjoyed this so much!
Calm, evolving, inspiring.
Great job! ^_-

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

It's awesome to hear you enjoyed it that much!
Thank you for all of the nice words :DD

No words, one of the best Cinematic Songs i never listen.

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Wow, that's an incredible compliment! I'll very gladly take it ^ ^
Thank you!!!

I really don't know what to say about this. It's good! VERY GOOD! just by listening to it, it brings many thoughts to my mind, the first though was "magical" like something from Harry Potter, and then it totally surprised me, and now I cant find out what to think about it other than it's super great :D another work well done

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

haha, Thanks for the awesome review! As always, I'm very excited to hear that you liked it enough to describe it as magical ;)
This piece, I worked harder on than my avarage one, after all :DDD
