Letting it Out

Listen on SoundCloud.com

Here's the first ever oriental piece that has major oriental instruments. It was originally replacement for a placeholder track that is used by a mobile game. The instruments in that track was synthetic and the playing definitely was not trying to be real.

This track is my proposal to replace that place-holder track. However I wanted to challenge myself to create something that sounds more likely heard from a Chinese orchestra, in terms of the sound and the playing.

Being somewhat of a fusion track, the only instruments that did not belong to a Chinese orchestra would be the sparing use of pieces of a modern drum kit (hats, cymbals), and the electric bass.

This took me about 5 hours to write, record, and mix.
