This is a track that I once posted on the old forum, so I thought I'd repost it here too. Was something originally inspired by a pirated Kesha vocal stem (from which I synthesized the pad sounds), and which I sat on for about three years before I buckled down and finished it. At one point an old schoolmate came over and kindly added some guitar. And since I don't finish anywhere near as much music as I'd like to admit, this song and my more recent Frozen Fire from last December I consider my two best works so far.
Soundwise it's mostly my own take on the concept pioneered by the likes of Eco and Breakfast - "big sky" epic uplifting trance with a touch of post rock. (The lead synth preset I even named "Ecoesque"). I deliberately made the climax to feel like it couldn't contain the power of its own emotion, to conjure the feeling of running wild and free toward a sunset.
