Edit 4/17/20: Thank you so much for the frontpage! <3

An epic orchestral theme of heroism and achievement. Not sure where I was going with this, because obviously we crash and burn at the end; but oh well -- that is how it usually goes lol. Writing strictly orchestral music is always fun, but I think I am ready to work on something cinematic and deep again. Can't wait to show you guys what I come up with next!

I am currently working on a piece for the Art-Inspired Music Contest, and I hope to actually have something amazing ready for you all. Much love to each of you!

Wow, that was actually a super inspiring track... while it lasted, at least...
The ending sticks out like a sore thumb... like it's asking for a finale, but that moment never comes. A bit of fermata on the last notes of the piece possibly might have made the existing ending not so jarring, I feel
Critique aside, I really love the feel you've portrayed in the rest of the piece... triumphant, soaring and just positive overall! Very essential vibes, especially in times like these (those horns really do get their point across)

Ugh this is so great, I'm totally envious of your colorful orchestration! It hurts my soul not to hear it continue at the end, though I understand the feeling of simply burning out in the middle of a piece. Still some great moments in here - I often wonder how much time you spend on sections with how deliberate your orchestrational choices are. Trumpet and oboe at 0:12 was a nice timbre. Looking forward to what you do next!

Bosa responds:

The answer to that is 'I spend too long on a piece.' It takes a lot of time and energy for music like this, and not just orchestral but other genres as well. Thank you very much for your kind words and thoughts! It means a lot to me to hear this!


This is awesome. I look forward to your ngadm songs :D

Bosa responds:

Thank you! I have been a big fan of your work recently as well.

I like the uplifting mood and the sound design. There's a noticeable delay on those strings that's a little disorienting at times, but I have a feeling that's a built-in part of the sample. Either way, my main complaint here is that it ends. I love the contrast between the climactic first minute and the more subdued final 30 seconds. The ending is really abrupt as it is, which is really a shame because the rest of the piece has a really evocative narrative form, and that same element of dynamism is even present in the title. You've left yourself a lot of space for a grand finale in those last 30 seconds, so if you ever write one please PM me. Until then, keep up the good work! ^_^

Bosa responds:

What would it take for you to write it for me
