-A Timeless Tale-

So recently I uploaded this under the title "A Hero's Journey" to Chips and got some positive feedback, so I figured people here would enjoy it.

The idea behind this song was the concept of a minstrel or bard. The flute was supposed to portray the storyteller. As the flute plays, the song develops a different feel, which is meant to transfer the listener into the time when the story took place.

There's a lot more to the story, but I like to leave it up to your imaginations.

(Also I'm uploading it a few hours early here, so don't tell anyone.)

Wow, so many good instruments :0 You really feel like it's a journey, I'd be happy to listen to this music in a movie.
That's a great work !

Definitely very cinematic feel. It's like the opening theme of either a game or cartoon. Definitely sounds like a heroes journey montage. Transitions aren't the cleanest but to be honest I wouldn't have it any other way. It's an adventure after all so some things have to jumble together. I really like the diverse amount of instruments you used. It gives a lot of texture.
