A Symphony of Two – Living Nightmares | Dark Ambient / Orchestral

The French duo A Symphony of Two, comes back with this spooky, chilling and ethereal tune about Princess Luna and her fears of becoming Nightmare Moon again. A nocturnal and ominous texture with some Spoken Word samples and orchestral arrangements that makes this song one of the many repertories that represent the creativity behind Blue Note’s and Cainbow’s minds.

This masterpiece reminds me of some really somber and mysterious horror videogame soundtrack like Akira Yamaoka’s Silent Hill soundtracks. You really need to check out this song and the album where it’s featured.


Night Blaze – It Was Thousands Years Ago | Orchestral

This beautiful orchestral piece by Russian composer Night Blaze calls to mind the events of ancient Equestria. It opens with gentle strings, and progresses into darker strings, pianos, and brass. The sheer emotion of this song throughout is breathtaking. But nowhere is it more breathtaking than at its climax. I heard the arrival of the twin sisters, their war against Sombra, their time in the Castle of the Two Sisters, and finally Luna’s banishment to the moon. Truly a majestic composition.


Various Artists – Horse Music Central Vol. 3 | Compilation Album | Multi-Genre

You may remember the two previous albums released by the crew over at Horse Music Central, their last one being released at Christmas with a distinct wintry theme. Now the regulars of the big musicians’ Discord server have another release to offer. Although no specific theme this time, it features some of the more underground artists, as well as a few classic long-running musicians.

I swear I’m getting slowly worse and worse at these writeups

Aurelleah – Lunar Whispers | Orchestral

Ah yes! It seems like Aurelleah is back at it again with yet another beautiful composition. The sweet, soft piano offers you listeners an array of soothing sounds as you let the cool air brush off your skin into the night sky. The symphonic choirs are also an amazing touch to the course throughout the rest of this piece. While it was commissioned, based on a FimFiction story out there called A Whispered Lullaby, it is definitely one of the most relaxing orchestrated song out there in this fandom to date. It’s also perfect for dreaming too!


Modern Bard – The Magistral Crystal Empire | Orchestral

French musician Modern Bard comes back with a remake of an older track about the Crystal Empire. The progression and instrumentation of the track bounce together to form one great track! The flute melodies are so well performed in this track, reminding me of Celtic music.

An incredible tribute to Crystal Empire, very philosophical and reflecting masterpiece. You will love it!
