Citadel Of Light - TDM
on: October 15, 2019, 14:10:57
So... okay this one is a bit older... 2 years... should be walking already  :lol:
This song has a bit more dark feeling with a touch of heroism. When I listen to this piece I always imagine a very dark landscape with dark brown clouds, dead foliage, all in an overall color of brown to black, but in the distance just in the centre of sun rays that burst through a hole in the clouds, a white and bright shining citadel as a contrast and source of hope against the dead land.

Well I hope you can enjoy the piece  ;)

Yeah....I think you pretty much nailed it with that heroism image.

I'm hearing determination in the face of almost certain failure as the song builds. That determination builds into absolute fierce commitment as the song progresses. Then there comes the moment when the challenge must simply be faced down. The surrounding desolation fades into the background as the light breaks through and the challenge is met head on.

Then there is nothing but the seared landscape.

I really like your work.

Thank you @Leonard Scaper and @LePlongeur . This song is just one of those that pretty much wrote itself. The image of the scene is still so clear that I'd love to paint it down but I can't  :-\
I wonder if there are people that would like to make such picture or maybe even an animation or short film for it. I'd probably cry out of happiness seeing this together with motion pictures... but I still got a long way to get there  :yes:

Oh and @LePlongeur I'm actually holding back myself rightnow  ;D I told myself not to post more than one song per week cause I don't want to spam the forum too much. Besides that the most important songs are online on my Soundcloud. Stuff I post here is songs that need some review  :blackgrin:

I'm glad you guys like my songs  :dance:
