There’s a reason Adrian is one of my most favorite music composers and that I love almost every single song he’s composed: it’s because of the pure EMOTION and HEART that he puts into each piece. This song he wrote for his then long-distance girlfriend, now sweet wife, Carina. AND YOU CAN HEAR HIS LOVE AND LONGING FOR HER IN THIS PIECE. YOU JUST CAN. It’s so bittersweet. The yearning is incredible. I resonate with the emotion strongly being in a long-distance relationship myself. I can hear the pain and love because I know it myself, and it’s amazing to find something like that in a single instrument deliver song. ❤ Just wow.
This was a finalist entry to a Hans Zimmer competition and it totally stole my imagination and heart. I can see horses galloping and hear pounding hooves and buzzing dragonflies and feel the warm western sun. The energy is just incredible!
I found this saved my “watch later” playlist on YouTube and I’m so glad I got to revisit it. It’s first half is warm, soothing, and slow with some very gentle piano and strings. Then the second half comes in, still warm, but also full of light and hopeful and joyous. We hear an oriental influence in the melody and the tempo and beat picks up dramatically. It’s such a joy to hear the transistions in the sound. It’s truly an emotional piece! ❤
