    Definetly one of the best spoken word tracks I ever heard. The story is captivating especially as it feels like an inner discussion and struggle to keep your head above water. The music is very supportive and blends in well. Just remember, life is never worthless. You are gifted and I am glad I pushed the play button on this track!

    Hey bro, I normally avoid spoken word tracks because they are usually pretty lame. You've changed my view with this one. I really dig the two voice track idea here. Not sure if its the intent or not but I relate it to the voice in your head that in this case seems to be your inner demon, who is obviously using your bit of hard luck to convince you that life is not worth living. Its a pretty heavy issue that is a reality struggle that a lot of people deal with at some point in their life. The message here is simple, Life is not easy for most people, its meant to be a challenge. If your going to survive you have to be strong, you have to be tough, and you have to believe you can overcome adversity. As hard as life seems to be sometimes, its still wonderful. Listening to this made me reflect back on some real bad times in my life and I'm so thankful that I had faith, pushed through it and didn't listen to that inner demon. Great pieNice work man, I love the music arrangement and your voice track is really superb. I could feel the emotion. Your super talented bro. Good things are in store for you, believe in yourself and make it happen.

    Dude, whoa. I mean, whah? THIS IS FUCKING BRILLIANT. Yes, I would like to hear some radass wailing guitar in the 2nd part, but then again i want wailing guitar in everything. From the first word I was mesmerized, and it never wavered. Never heard anything like it. I love it all but especially love the devil voice taunts. You're one trippy talented motherfucker.

    Excellent work Eyedye. I thought you did perfect in recreating how it was inside your head, though it was much scarier there I enjoyed the story presentation along with the rough voices, i hear it the same wouldnt have done it any other way because its right. Keep going thanks for still being here. Peace.

    Good to hear from ya man. A very personal one from me, and it does get scary sometimes. But some the best things Ive done have been confronting some of those voices. I will continue to keep going and create more. Im glad you still listen.

    Nice job expressing and opening yourself up in a track. The dramatic music and background vox are effective in setting a dark and ominous mood. There's always a light at the end of the tunnel and making compositions like this can be a great stress reliever and some form of mental healing. It's heartfelt, honest and so you. To me, that's what music is all about.

    Overall I found life isn't easy and we all go through tough times and how we deal with it dictates our happiness. It's a good time to learn about oneself and to grow as a person. It doesn't seem to feel that way when it is happening but after you make it through your tough time, you can look back and be proud of yourself and pat yourself on the back for doing it. Just lost a band mate from my first band from depression because life got him down and he drank himself to death. What a waste, so talented and he gave up.

    Take care!

    Very Kind words sir. Music is about the only reliever I've got. Sorry to hear about your bandmate man, It seems lot of bands unfortunately go through something like that. I see it much too often. But im still holding on and giving all I got cuz music is about all I really do have. Stay tuned Brother

    Yo! The contrast between light and dark, between good and bad, is highlighted well. The voice representing the darker side is spooky, its threatening, and its perfect. It represents the conflicts that we as people deal with, the voice (or voices) in our heads. The whole song up until 3 minutes, I picture someone trying to get ready for like a workout or a strenuous task. And at 3 mins, they start the task and just beast thru it with undying strength. Love the ending reverse piano. Keep up the great work. Peace & Blessings.

    I`ve been away slacking for a long time so just catching up with this one now....I did several music mixes for a spoken word artist a few years ago so have some appreciation for the art and the talents it takes to do it well....The backing music caught my attention right from note one..lovin it...nice fat piano...and the cello is great for adding emotional depth to most any kind of music..thoughtful lyrics even if they are dark (thats part of our journey too)....This is honestly one of the very best spoken word performances I have heard Eyedye (and I have heard many)..change nothing.....bravo...standing ovation from an old guy up North.....Ed

    That CELLO!! This is quite raw and contains so much depth. This is the first spoken-word song I have been able to listen to without cringing. You actually convey the feeling behind the words. Good job, I cannot commend this enough. The backing vocals add a touch of suffering that really carried this song far. Beautiful piece of art here. I hope you're doing better.

Even if I felt the same way as you, i cant play this more than once. NO DISRESPECT because I know there's a niche of people than CAN vibe with it but, for me, i'd like to hear something different.

Description : HEY, hey guys...IM BACK! and it feels amazing. I took a month or so off to work thru some shit, and in that time i bring you this. Personally my best work so far imo. I may add lyrics to it eventually, but not sure yet. The original has a longer beginning for that reason. Thanks to chanho17 for uploading great piano loops for use. let me know what you think!

Description : First off, I am a huge fan of the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy and "The Hobbit." After watching all of the movies (including the final chapter of the Hobbit", I was motivated to write something that I thought might work with their journey home.

Samplitude has a couple of great new VST's, one called "World Flutes" and the other "Celtic Harp" and I used both of them in this song. I created every last note on this one. Guitars were all Fenders, soft synths besides the Samplitude items mentioned previously were created in the SynthMaster series by KVR, and the strings were created with Samplitude's "String Ensemble."

Not sure about the mix (my hearing is shot), so most of the mixing is done by sight instead of listening. If you hear something way out of whack, let me know. If you are interested in taking this one further, let me know and I'll post a link to the stems. Thanks to the Hobbit for the inspiration and to you for listening.

EDIT: I've had some requests for the individual instrument stems so here is the link to all of those files. The tempo is 80bpm. Feel free to do whatever you want with this one.

https://www.mediafire.com/?vzbi2scw8vc7cws

EDIT: I've had over 200 downloads of the stems, so if you have done anything with them it would be cool to hear it (thanks for the interest).

If you have any criticism at all or would like to use this in one your projects be sure to leave a comment below. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Description : Ok...here it is! Another colab with maestro Tumbleweed! Ed provided the unfinished, basic track...I composed and recorded the long intro using different synths and then added piano (well to the fore) and some brass arrangements along the rest of the track (no violin this time...hehe) and then did the final mixing to wrap it up as it is presented now. I hope you will enjoy it and we both appreciate your listening time and your valuable comments:) Otherwise all thanks to Ed!

first it starts from WorldWar2, one of the most sadly years for human. then after the war, you can see people are happy, kids are playing, but after some years, you can see the world is getting ready for the WorldWar3 and then you can hear the rest of the story in music...

Description : I had no particular intention doing this, but then it just came on me out of nowhere....How to make an antithesis Halloween work!? Prior to that there were no plans to make a track for the occasion, furthermore I've never been really interested in such a thing. It always seemed a bit silly to me if not outright childish. But then I remembered the Interview with The Vampire and Bram Stoker's Dracula. My gosh, there was some peculiar romanticism in there and I probably don't have to tell you twice that this must be a bait for Orlando, as is a cup of fresh young blood for a vampire...:) Furthermore I like people who are different, so I just have to like vampires who a different as well...hehe...so it should be dawning on you by now that this won't be your standard Halloween tune...haven't I mentioned "antithesis"? So...no growling zombies, midnight cemetery bells, creaking doors or any of your favourite horror sounds, although it's still a little bit darker in tone...hell yeah, vampires are still vampires...haha...but this one is mainly about a vampire desperately in love with a young lady, craving for her as a madman...I won't tell whether she's also a vampire or not, cause you might figure it out listening to the track...^^ Otherwise it was about time for me to come up with a new solo work, since I've been almost exclusively doing collabs in those past few months (which I love ofcourse)...afteral you can always ask Ed...:)^^____Happy Halloween folks!:)

Description : As first, just forget about the genre...I had to put something, didn't I?:) Otherwise this is something like enjoying sunshine, but to make the feeling a bit more complicated is also about not wanting to have it directly in my face...hehe...

Description : This time around I made a rare exception in terms of my usual way of doing things. In most cases I avoid using samples, loops or any other kind of pre-recorded material due to my strong preference of making music from scratch! Yet, here is one of those rare occasions where I decided to combine my recently composed and recorded material with some samples from Magix sound library. And here is the result...not necessarily cinematic...but you know..:)^^ Any comments appreciated!
