This is a beautiful phrase and progression, with very nice timbres and sounds / instruments. But it's always the same pattern..., except perhaps in the end. Some change / variation would be good, you wouldn't need such a collection of sounds.

I have never seen Games of Throwns ¿?

Thanks Luis, I agree with you. There are slight variations in theme, but this is my usual problem when composing, lack of "things happening".

Oh and, how do you not know about Game of Thrones?! 🙂

And I mean books, not series - these are endless well of insipration....

Hi Seraphs.  This is quite a lovely piece. What is your method of composing?  Into a DAW I would imagine.  There are/can be two perspectives.   I usually record what ever come out of me be first. Letting my fingers do what they do, not being too analytical about it  Then I assume my 'observational' mode.  I listen any number of times, looping the song.  Then after a while, I begin to notice patterns in it, I was first not aware of.  Like I've used one instrument too much, or repeated something too much, or stuck with the same instruments too much. Or find I've stayed with the same 'density' of notes too long. With a DAW, you can go in there and re-work a segment without breaking the composition.  Just take one of the instruments you've used and give it a descending line, or a slight variation of what it previously did.  Very good work

Thanks Mark, the way you described it is quite the same as I do it :).

Although in my "observational" mode I sometimes mess things up more than fix them, so in this piece I didn't do as much as I should of observing part. After I've finished it I've noticed it might need more variations, tried to rework it, but I guess for the time my inspiration was gone.

I will probably try to rework it though, I really like the emotion of this song.

Anyway I'm really glad you like it and thanks so much about your comment.

I felt the first phrase was very Harry Potter like. I dunno why... But the rest of the piece has that GoT vibe all te way. Big GoT fan over here! Ramin Djawadi makes beautiful dialogues between characters
