Elancia Chronicles Main Theme [Feat. Kamiyana]

This is an orchestral arrangement of the main theme for my personal project, Elancia Chronicles. @kamiyana and I worked pretty hard on this for a few months on and off between our other projects.
Both of us did several minutes of the arrangement, and added parts to the other one's bits of the arrangement. It resulted in a pretty dynamic tune.

Since this is the tune that is supposed to introduce readers to the first batch of characters, and the world as it is right at the start of the story (the story spans 3 years, so the world will change and evolve as it goes) we decided to make it long, and let it cover all sorts of moods. The beginning is more adventerous and orchestral, while later on, it becomes more choir oriented and moody. At the end, everything comes together.
Guitar is a constant through the song, as the main character of the first story is a guitarist.

We wanted the song to feel both familiar to people who grew up on JRPGs in the 90s, and fresh at the same time, to show that the soundtrack is going to be very diverse. Of course, you all on Weasyl have heard just how outlandish the soundtrack gets later on (techno, R&B, rock, country, and more are all wrapped up in it, along with pretty much everything else I've ever wanted to try) but for people just starting off the story, this seems like a good way to sum up everything.
Enjoy!

I am finally going to start uploading the story this week. I hope to upload one episode (chapter!) per week, if at all possible. I've been working on this in varying capacities since 2008. This is one of the first songs that readers will hear in the prologue episode. That will be coming along very soon, hopefully. For now, have some music!

    That's what I really enjoy about your music. It's very thoughtful.

      Thank you so much. ;~; I really try to pour my soul into every song. Sometimes it definitely shows more than others, but I'm always trying to paint a picture! I'm glad that it shows through!

        Yea, of course. It's one of the reasons I like to keep in touch with your productions.

    Ah, this is a very nice track. It certainly takes me to another world. I will have to try to make some free time so I can start reading that story! Anyway, kudos for another fantastic piece.

      I'd really like that, if you get the time. :D I'm posting it in very, very small chunks, so it's going to be about 10-20 pages a week, or every two weeks, depending on how quickly kgblackstone kgblackstone and I work. That means you'll never be overwhelmed by like 30,000 pages and 5 billion words! XD Also, thank you. ;~;
