Orchestral music often tends to be very emotive, from epic orchestral soundtracks depicting grand adventures through space and time, to more peaceful tracks that paint beautiful landscapes in the listener’s mind. No matter the style or mood, perhaps the most impactful music of this genre is that which speaks to the heart and tells a story to the troubled soul. Red Spark’s new track, “Fairytale,” exemplifies this idea. Inspired by a Kirin fairytale, the track begins with quiet strings and delicate piano, making it easy to imagine a lonely traveler faintly silhouetted against a vast and barren landscape. A sudden burst of intense brass follows, suggesting a climactic moment in the traveler’s journey – perhaps, a rush of overwhelming loneliness, or intimidation by the magnitude of the wilderness, or fear of never reaching her destination. The intensity dissipates with the entrance of soft woodwinds and oscillating key changes, creating a meditative soundscape of wonder and awe. As you enjoy this gorgeous track, let it inspire a journey of your own imaginings.
SpinScissor – Together We Grow | Electronic
SpinScissor is at it again! Releasing another experimental fun song about Bright Mac and Pear Butter. Utilizing lots of scenes from “The Perfect Pear” in both the production of audio and visuals this gives a lot of nostalgic vibes from the PMVs I used to watch. The odd time signatures and mixture of assorted instruments all give a very unique and warm feel throughout this piece. The subtle background noise when there’s a little pause part way through really gives a homely and casual feel to the mood as if its a fun relaxed jam session. Short and sweet. this is a fun little groove about this lovely couple and worth your ears on a quiet night!

Check it out for some wonderfully cinematic orchestral music.

The track is paced at an energetic gallop, and features boisterous but intricate instrumentation as well as interpolation of two classic Chinese motifs. It’s super cool to see such a fusion of MLP and a producer’s own upbringing and culture!

Velvet R. Wings – Disillusion | Chillout / Folk
Velvet R. Wing’s “Disillusion” is a haunting tune. Velvet’s gorgeous vocals carry the song, starting with just a hum that turns into a wistful verse about loss, changing times, and the need to move on and “fly away.” Her voice is met with the poignant sound of the harp, crisp percussion, and a few synths here and there, all reverberates though a massive space. The overall sound is eerie and transcendental, capturing the tone of the lyrics beautifully. It’s sooo nice!

rawrity – need to go home ft. SOUND BANDIT | Pop
rawrity’s back with the latest installment in a series of tracks about their OC looking for and meeting Pinkie Pie! “need to go home” nails that bittersweet sound with its chord progression and several moments where the instrumental drops out, leaving us with just reverb, the echo of a moment passed. The pony chops in the background are a delight, the lyrics make great use of imagery, and SOUND BANDIT’s vocals always bring in some extra hyperpop energy. Great work you two!
EveryDayDashie – Pirates of the Ponyvillain | Classical / Epic Orchestral
Have you ever wondered what would happen if Disney and Hasbro came together to make a My Little Pony x Pirates of the Caribbean crossover? While that will probably never happen, we can at least imagine with EveryDayDashie’s song “Pirates of the Ponyvillain.” Featuring a reimagining of the famous “He’s a Pirate” tune and Dashie’s incredible talent on the violin adding onto said theme, this song is full of epic adventure from start to finish. It is Dashie’s subtle & signature MLP musical licks that they add to every one of their songs that shines once again, reminding us that this song is still pony at its core. If you told me this song was taken straight from the Pirates of the Caribbean OST, I would probably believe you at first.
