I can't believe I've survived two weeks of this so far, I'm proud of myself actually :D may this be a productive musical year for me

As of the song, it's a remake of something I wrote back in 2015 and I'm still very proud of so I wanted to make a more polished version of it.

This song was written with the very specific idea of a character exploring a forest in the base of a mountain at night, and constantly getting the feeling of being watched, so I wanted to go for a weird mix between calm, adventurous and sinister on here, with the sinister part becoming gradually more intense until the trumpets kick in, and then things calm down again at the end. Just like in Fantastic Gateway my idea is for this song to loop, but I'll assume it's got that akward pause in the end... again TT_TT

As always, made in FL Studio 10, with the presets FL Studio comes with by default and some soundfonts.

Bro, it is really good track

The flute lead is definitely the best part. This sounds medieval in a strange way.
And those bells are the exact same ones that DM Dokuro uses!
And those muted trumpets sound like the ones from Battle Against a True Hero!

Edit (9/12/2020): Just want you to know that I still listen to this a lot and I still love it the same. It's truly a wonderful track

The trumpets sounding like the ones from Battle Against a True Hero is because the trumpets ARE the ones used in Battle Against a True Hero! Toby Fox really likes his soundfonts and used the (in?)famous ZUNpet sample from the TH soundfont for that song (though he normally uses the Earthbound soundfont as far as I'm concerned).
As of the bells, I'm not really that familiar with DM Dokuro, I think I only listened to a couple of Calamity mod tracks a loooong time ago and that's all, so hearing he uses the same soundfont I do is... quite a surprise I have to say :D
And the medieval sound, I've been told about that a bunch of times from that specific song, I'll guess because the instrument choices I used.
