I woke up feeling like how this song sounds. Wonder.

This song is the first in a series of orchestral songs that I'll finish sometime. I whipped this up in an hour flat xD


"The sun shone through the trees, onto the serene garden that held the seeds of his thoughts and ideas, and nothing could tear his gaze away from the rays, such was his gratitude and euphoria at the one who created it all, and the otherworldly beauty of light falling to earth."

I wrote that earlier, as well as the song, when I looked out the window of my studio, and the sun was shining through the trees onto my desk, and I was instantly awestruck at how beautiful it was. Interesting where inspiration strikes, isn't it?

I always love when people write ideas and melodies that are shortly out of context, then the harmony is brought in underneath and you can hear how the idea relates to the harmony. That's something you've done really well here. The really harmonically ambiguous and mysterious opening capturing the wonder you mentioned but then having it grounded and cushioned by some more comforting and warm harmony, good job!

This theme takes me back to some of the lonely mountain levels of the old Pokemon games, like the gentle snowy pass that gives you a momentary break from the relentless caves. sweet nostalgia <3

EMBL3M responds:

Glad you like it! <3 you captured the motion of this piece really well, I like how you described it :D

I very much got the sense of wonder. Its a bit repetative but you said you will keep working on it so sure itll go up in starts

EMBL3M responds:

Yeah, I'll probably expand on it someday. Maybe when I'm better at composing. Thanks!
