Looking Back *Original Composition

Hey guys, this is a song I made called Looking Back. It conveys pretty much what it says, kinda of a bitter sweet "remembrance" of the Halo Trilogy.
Hope you all like it!

Medium: Piano
Difficulty(1-5): 3

Included files:

that sounds really good! how do you get the really realistic string sounds? Just a super good keyboard?

Thanks!
The realistic strings are possible thanks to the new set of patches I just recently got: the Vienna Symphonic Library.
I need to fine tune the ending though, I did it in a rush.

Honestly this talent isn't fair lol. You should contact Martin O'Donnel or sumthin because I really think they would consider your work because this is beyond what any normal person can do. You have Talent for writing music and continue to do it and you will definitely go places.

I'm pretty damn sure that if you were to apply for a job working with Marty O'Donnell at Bungie on future Halo Soundtrackss and you brought this you would get the job almost instantly. Great Job!
