Thanks! Celtic flutes tend to create a lovely effect, I think.

Great musical track Ivan! I hope I don´t pester this community with my associations and combinings to Prog Rock Days, but with this track you would have been for sure famous in the “Kraut” area these days: I am German and of an age to state that! I love it!

Were you referring to the “Scarborough Fair” feel from this track? The medieval like overall feel, maybe. At least that was what I was aiming for. Hah, I have to test this track on my German friend living here. Thanks for saying that. Big ego boost for me, LOL!

No it is not Scarborough Fair. I referr to bands like NOVALIS,GROBSCHNITT and HOELDERLIN. Two of them worked a lot with the poems and tales of the poets they borrowed their names.
Maybe you check your ancestry for a “Kraut-Gen” “:0)

Thanks for pointing me to Novalis, Grobschnitt and Hoelderlin! I’m not sure if I would be as well received as them in Germany. I think they are called “romantic rock” or something. Quite apt, from the few YouTube videos I watched. Their music reminds me of songs like “House of the Rising Sun”, “Dust in the Wind”… same era?

If that’s what you were referring to, then yes I see the connection :) Music-wise, I mean. Not my ancestry though. lol

What a wonderful piece this is. I am sure someone will make good use of those stems.

Very nice, good pop ballad
permalink   Ivan Chew Mon, Nov 7, 2011 @ 8:02 AM
Yeah, it does sound a bit pop. Definitely ballad, I’d hoped :) thanks!

Very smooth, ambient track. Some sections remind me of old school video game music ^^;;

Like some pre first person shooter console game sort of games? Yes, I think so!

I was very much reminded of the Final Fantasy RPG series actually…

Congratulations on a job well done.

I’ve enjoyed this song and used it in my painting video.
