This makes MAP31 in the Plutonia MIDI Pack
seem like the happiest track ever. I didn't think I'd ever manage something with a sadder tone than that track, but it's been done.
Truth is, I wrote this song back in 2011. I was 14. I used to record it on to my shitty keyboard and I thought it was great. It was based on a segment of the theme tune to Medal of Honor Frontline. There was a string section where they managed to have a chord sequence, and the top note of each chord was always the same. I took this sound and used it here, and then put a violin melody over it. After a synth break, the piece expands into one of those large symphonic pieces you usually get in science programs, like Wonders of the Universe.
I am just so pleased with how this has turned out. By far, my favourite part of the track is bars 68-70 (4:28 to 4:40 in the video). It brings a tear to my eye, and that's something that very rarely happens with any music, and especially not on my own.
This was not written for the default MIDI sound, hence I have not provided a download of the original MIDI, because it sounds fucking cataclysmic under Microsoft GS.
Thanks in advance for listening.
