I wanted to try to make this little fairytale/fantasy style track since I love this kind of sound but I’ve never finished a track with it. This is a variation of a short clip I made maybe three years ago, but I only got around 30 seconds done back then and then I hit a creative block. Now I picked it up again, rewrote the whole thing and this is what I got.
It’s still a bit work in progress, I stopped composing today and now I’ll listen to it for a couple days to see if there’s anything that bothers me. I’m still having trouble with the end fade out, It dies a bit too fast, I tried different things with it but It just didn’t sound good. I should maybe also exaggerate the slowdowns and dynamics a bit more.
The actual sound has its influences in a music piece that I heard in a cider commercial years ago, which in turn had its influences most probably in the music of Edward Scissorhands by Danny Elfman (Ice Dance specifically)
Instruments used: strings are from Cinematic Studio Strings, the vocals are from Mystica, Cantus, Voices of Gaia and Olympus Elements, Celesta is from Kontakt Factory Library, bassoon, oboe, marktree and french horn is from Hollywood Orchestra, and then there’s the Elysium Harp.
BPM is 120 with slowdowns from time to time.
