Description : This song is an homage to a forgotten time - it's dark, medieval, melodic and epic. The theme is a crusade... the templars, the East... warriors, poets and thieves.
I used an array of instruments : cello, timpani, xylophone, dulcimer, steel guitar, piano.

Lyrics:
We traveled for seven days
You told me you knew the way
You promised we’d save the day
But still, we failed

We followed the stars for weeks
And I couldn’t feel my feet
And after the longest time
We arrived
We arrived

I am not your armor
I am not the sword by your side
I’m the endless ocean
Bringing the changing tide
Shining the guiding light
Raising the flags up high

We traveled for many years
We gave up our greatest fears
All the tears
Wash away

I am not your armor
I am not the sword in your hand
I’m the wind in the trees
And the life in the sand
Shining the light
Raising the flag

Look forward to your reviews. Thanks for listening!

    Reminds me of some Loreena McKennit sounding music. Beautiful voice and a great selection of instrumentation to set the tone of the song. I love how a bit of accent comes through in your singing. Not to much but enough to give your voice more character than it naturally has. I look forward to maybe using some of your vocals in some music in the future. Truly, thank you for your wondrous and enchanting talent.

    Ohh this is very very nice. Pretty singing voice. Celtic flavor. I'd love to master this one a little if you don't mind. In fact I think I will. (I'll send you the result). This song is very compelling and emotional. Nicely balanced. You are very talented I can see. I can see White Sands is a fan already...LOL. 5 favs! Wow! Or maybe his keyboard stuck? (lol)

    thank you so much Frenchkid... i'm a big fan of Tori Amos (who gets compared to Kate Buch a lot!) , so I guess that's where the influence comes from.

    Minette,

    Great song. The vocals are excellent. You reminded me of the style I really love, Celtic. Specifically, I felt like I was listening to one of my Celtic Circle CDs. Really nice music and excellent balance of instrument, this is really musical. Great work! Also, very well balanced, nothing overpowering. Nice.

    Thanks Siensystem - it's nice to have a comment on the balance in the track. I try and keep things mellow and not overpower. I am very much into the whole Celtic music vibe. Have you ever heard of Anuna (they are an Irish vocal group who sings mostly in Latin and Gaelic) They are awesome - and a big influence for me.

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).

Description : Guys, This track made for a short movie.
I hope you enjoy it if you do then please leave me a comment.

Description : Been awhile hasn't it?
2016 has been quite the nasty little cunt, honestly didnt know if i would make it. A Cinematic Spoken Word about how I deal with things, and why i still go on..

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!

Description : Guy’s this is sound track I have created for a friend who is a documentary film maker.
The film is about the distraction of Earth neutral beauty and creating concrete jungles in its place. It was really sad to see so I came up with this track.
Majority of it done with minor keys to reflect the sadness I hope you all like it.

Description : a 277 second cinematic about human wars...
I know its a lot for a 17 years old boy to think about this type of things, but its me, and it cant be changed...
lemme tell you about story of the music...
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 : No more singing now...haha! So what comes next?
I belong to the nation which has a great passion for alpinism (not myself though)..:) This newly composed and recorded stuff is dedicated to all of those who stayed in the grip of Himalaya forever!...Respect!
