It Begins

Liner Notes: 

I wanted to get something done right away, so I started playing around with computer instrumental stuff.

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

It does indeed begin! That unresolved note at the end leaves the listener breathlessly wondering what is about to happen next. Great intensity to the tune and arrangement.

I love it! The only thing I would say is maybe try to not have the strings and whatever else there was (wind?) so high. I felt like it was a little tinny and hard to hear the notes that were being played. Other than that, great job!

love the rhythm of the strings, with the drums providing accents

Definitely a soundtrack vibe there.

This definitely has a soundtrack feel - you could imagine it behind the opening credits of a movie. Real drive to the drums and cellos. The violins (or violas?) introduce an interesting dissonance in places that makes you take notice.

Dramatic stuff!

Reminds me of Howard Shore and Jeremy Soule in themes and ideas.

The ending is great! Ominous.

Very nice! You started with a computer instrumental, too! It definitely sounds like an epic beginning. Is there going to be an album like this?

Yes. I saw a medieval setting, trees pathways! Nice when the music paints the picture. Really nice first up.

Cool! It's a great opening song, the beginning of an adventure. The drums give it that epic feel and I like the instrumentation throughout.

That's quite the epic, soaring, cinematic track! Full of romance and mystery and tension, it's riveting!

Appropriately epic... and very well done! A soundtrack for a movie that hasn't been made but I would DEFINITELY watch.

whoa, this is one of those songs that sort of eludes words. I mean it just works. It's kinetic and bouncy, full of tension, and very memorable. Melodies are still bouncing in my head, though the song has ended

Wow! This is really lovely and ready to drop right into an epic movie soundtrack! That is, if we are gonna still have movies with COVID! Great start to 50/90 Katie!

Deeply atmospheric, and there's a definite spice in the mix - the elements come together as more than the sum of their parts.

I'm hearing this as the background music for an action RPG - something like a cross between Myst, DOOM and Hexen, where the demons of the future and past conspire and you find yourself with a map, a handful of weapons, and a rather large problem to solve. The ending was gripping - I wanted more!

Suspension leading up to 1:12 and then the turnaround is very cool. I'm seeing vikings jumping out of boats with axes and stuff like that. Woah, cool ending. I like it!
