After one week of non-stop working I can finally release this.


I'm honestly so surprised of what I've accomplished and I love this song with every fiber of my heart (and I hope you too ^^)


This is, in part, dedicated to everyone in this world who needs to be stronger than ever during tough or stressful times. Hope you can win enough courage to overcome your insecurities, critical or stressful situations, problems, etc., because nobody warned us of what life would be, so we just gotta stay strong.


Hope you enjoy this orchestral piece and see you next song! ^^


P.D.: If you want, you can offer feedback for improvement (composition, mixing... anything). It is always welcome :)

Awesome Track!

AlbeGian responds:

Thank you so much! :D

a really awesome track, a little subtle melody (?) or idk something to add extra depth to this would be nice _-_ overall 6/5 stars :)

Damn this tracks set the rest of your track away. This is trailer level of epic. Hot damn.

AlbeGian responds:

Thank you so much!!

Intro reminds me of something out of Xenoblade Chronicles. Perhaps the title is also influencing me.

I love that melody that introduces itself early on: it's memorable, it's singable, and I could catch myself singing it. You've injected a lot of emotion into them that it feels as though the instruments themselves are being made to sing. I'm aware that this is your outlook with a lot of your instrumental music, and I'm glad to see it being put to use.

You've also introduced techniques in here that rarely get used in the vast majority of cinematic pieces I've heard, the trombone slide being the most notable one to me.

You've kept this piece varied enough to sound like it goes a fair way against the grain. Also, key changes are my weakness: that F# minor section was very, VERY good. The transition back to the original key was seamless and barely noticeable -- sometimes, simplicity speaks a lot louder, and you used it quite well.

All in all, solid effort. Well done.

Freakin beautiful. Loved the horns at the 1:30 section especially. Biggest thing I noticed was that the 3:44 section had frequencies that clashed in the low end. It sounded like the low strings and the drums were competing with each other in those low ranges. There's a lot of emotion in this song though. Well done
