I just thought I'd drop a quick note here to let you know how much I appreciate and love this song.

I've listened to it for years now (wow does time fly) and it still remains one of my favourites. It still remains a solid, background, relaxing and beautiful tune. Further, it is one of the few ambient songs that actually encourages my imagination to drift off somewhere peaceful yet awe-inspiring; like some forgotten temple out in the middle of nowhere, or the grand ruins of one. It's beautiful, and recently it has been a huge help getting me to sleep as it's one of the only songs I can have on in the background and leave on loop until the morning.

So again, thank you for creating this. Sorry it took so long to leave a comment, but I figured if you still had me coming back years after creating it, I should at the very least leave a note of appreciation (my first comment on newgrounds if I'm not mistaken!)


Ever since i read one awesome book about templar knights, i can't stop thinking about em' when i hear anything monk-like. However this is among the first ones that kind that made me sleepy, a very relaxing song.

A true masterpiece, how come you're not famous already?
I mean, outside of Newgrounds.

Rig responds:

Ummm...I don't know.

Thanks for the encouragement! It's a nice song to sleep to. :)

Ah... Very nice.

This helps me get a moment of piece in my house, and having a brother with autism, I NEED that moment of piece. xD

It's quite calming and it gives me the feeling like I'm in some large, sunlit church all by myself. Best part is, it's a song that I can listen to for a while and not get sick of. That's pretty rare for me. Good job.

Rig responds:

Thanks for the support, man! I know what it's like to be with autistic kids, and I'm glad my song was able to help you get some much-needed relaxation. :)

You might like my song "Progress", I made it in pretty much the same way.

Love this

its very relaxing, even writing this, i feel the need to make pauses, i hope you make more as good as this

Rig responds:

Haha, I hope so too. You might like my song "Progress"

Really calm, does it's job

So I'm actually up late at night, and I decide to hit up some ambient stuff to listen to while doing homework. This is just really calming, and it was a nice change to listen to, compared to DnB and stuff. I have nothing bad to say about this, I'm really tired, and I've got stuff I've got to do. This song does what it's "supposed to do".

A nice 5 + 10.

Rig responds:

Good to hear, man. Thanks for the support, glad it helped you out.
