MathematicPony – Just Waiting (Redux) | Piano Pop

(Listen to the original here!)
Today seems to be a day of me being a brony that is finding new artists. Yes, Mathematicpony is known in the fandom, but hearing something like this redux is perfect for those like me that have not! Hearing a musician’s growth in remakes or redux gives your honest perspective on their talent and passion. MathematicPony sings from Twilights perspective on that faithful first train ride in the season five premiere heading to Starlight’s village, as the princess of friendship for the first time.
The lyrics do set the tone for the rest of the series of looking back. Many fans wondered what would next after the season 4 finale! It where you hear a much more improved composition that adds to the wonder of what’s to come. More drum and orchestra elements that amp of the emotion of excitement that we all felt back then as bronies. Like Twilight, we all did not know where things would take us back in 2015. Improved vocals and mixing along with the core of this song, those smooth keyboard melodies. The song talks about growth and still learning, always looking forward to better days and wonders. What’s fitting is the new vibe of this song plays into things the come, and we all know what Twilights destiny was when it was all said and done at the season 9 finale! MathematicPony well done with the treat of redux and showing how much you have grown in six years. As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.

Violin Melody – Lacuna | Ambient

This piece by Violin Melody is something else. Vio, as a musician and person, has breathtaking talent. I, as one of her close friends, will tell you first hand. It’s feeling and emotion; You hear it when she does an uplifting trance song, and when trying her hand at Ambient, You hear the story. In the early MLP comics, There was an arc about Nightmare Rarity. For anyone that has read that. Then your know that Rarity gave into her self-doubt and changed into Nightmare Rarity. The message of that comic and this track by Vio greatly blur the lines of Violin’s real-life struggles with self-esteem and worth. Something I can tell you very real. As you listen to this serene composition, like Rarity, Violin with friends such as myself helped her understand her worth and how much she valued by us. Rarity was able to break away from Nightmare Rarity after understanding that Twilight and her friends were there for her. This whole composition with so serene, tranquil, tells that story very well with its soft and gentle emotion and this feeling of a spiritual understanding of yourself. It better if you listen for yourself and hear what I speak of. As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
