Covering a cherished community classic as a heartfelt tribute, N4ghtwolf gathered the help of Skylat and Liv & Learn to spark into creation this beautiful rendition of Aviators’ Open Your Eyes. The starry piano and orchestral arrangement is complementing so well the gorgeous vocals, and the trio definitely did wonders!
5 seconds into this song I was already in love with it! The vibrant sounds mixed with the perfect chords surround you as only pros like RoomVR and Zephysonas can craft. Starlight Sanctuary is a gorgeous instrumental that sets a peaceful nighttime landscape around you. The strings harmonize together wonderfully, reaching a deep level of emotions as if that is how nature intended. As explained by RoomVR, “This track is about my love for the night. I wanted to portray the feelings that I experience while looking up at the stars; feelings of love and comfort, wonder and awe… and peace.” This track as well as many other amazing songs are available now on Ponies at Dawn: Skyward!
Frozen Night’s abilities as a composer are practically second to none at this point in the fandom when it comes to big, powerful orchestral works. The fact that this one tells such a deep and complex story is especially impressive, working in unison with Lyra’s adventure throughout the Background Pony fanfiction. Each section is equally spellbinding in its own way, and is a journey that simply must be experienced. I dare say that being familiar with the underlying inspirational material would make it all the more powerful!
Newcomer TurquoisePianist brings us Aerial Exploration, an electronic track with orchestral composition that varies in styles throughout. When combined with the changing instrumental features, TurquoisePianist achieves a sense of viewing different cultures, giving the track a more worldly vibe – as though you are exploring from the sky! I really like the dancing bell section 3 minutes in and encourage everyone to listen to the exciting themes prevalent throughout the whole song!
Inspired by epic movies like The Avengers, Zephysonas composed this exhilarating piece as a theme for theoretical similar MLP-themed trailer. My Little Epic starts out light with high strings and an airy piano before transitioning into a dramatic track with the ensemble and gorgeous choir voices. It is easy to imagine an emotional movie preview while listening along to this song!
Emotional, entrancing, reflective, magical all the way, John Doe’s new masterpiece Altitude is the perfect BGM to play while exploring a snowy mountain in a RPG game, feeling so much emotion along the melodies and rich arrangement of many instruments. And if you focus on the journey you’ve been through, the memories you’ve made, and the team members you’ve met and who joined your adventure… then chances are a distinct powerful emotion will hit you, and prove once again, that music and Passion are magic!
Cute, playful, poetic, elegant, there’s many words that we could use to describe this amazing new piece by maestro Mane In Green, yet the song speaks for itself and words wouldn’t be enough to describe its sheer beauty. Doing wonders at his favorite instrument the harpsichord, Mane pays much tribute to our beloved Rarity with a stunning composition and arrangement that would surely make her proud!
“And just like that, it was like someone had turned on a switch in my brain. Suddenly, I knew who I was. I knew why all of those terrible things had happened to me. I knew what I had to do. And I knew how to use the magic of my people.”
This is a powerful and emotional piece based from the My Little Pony Comics complete with dynamic choirs, rich brass, and soothing woodwinds the piece is crafted amazingly well and as different themes come and go you can really put together the story as it plays out and the story telling is one of my favourite things about Orchestral music! If you need more Sombra in your life, Etherium delivers and you do not want to mss out!
We’ve come a long way haven’t we? This is a surprisingly sweet tune from Toby as it leads in with a gentle acoustic guitar melody and a soothing backing of strings to harmonize with the iconic vocals from the Season Three Finale, “Celestia’s Ballad” but it wouldn’t be Toby if he left us on that, right? I can assure you as time goes on the track will flip on its head with a masterful use of complex chords and harmonization with a foreboding atmosphere and an almost industrial sound. It threw me for a loop the first time I heard it and I hope the same can be said to those who have yet to listen!
Night Blaze really shows off an array of compositional prowess with this track. Happy Ending is exactly what the title implies – a beautiful, uplifting composition evoking warm nostalgia and sentimentality. The score moves seamlessly through different parts from a piano lead-in to light string movements to more intense, grand segments with electric guitar and quickly strummed strings. It’s a little hard not to tear up listening to this wonderfully emotional track!
