Upon That Japanese Rain

A misty morning. Behold the standing temple, where two of heart are to be married. Inside this temple, the ceremony begins, two of heart are to become one. A beautiful time is this, where honor brings forth greatness for the middle-aged mothers and fathers, for the old and wise grandmothers and grandfathers, and for the new generation that is soon to come. A soldier and a princess... who couldn't be more happier than they are now.

You may have seen two Erhu violinists in the early morning mist and rain, but I saw this. It is amazing how two people can see different things, is that good or bad? Good because the minds of two are not equal and get grasp difference of knowledge. Bad because it is how wars are started. Superb job on this audio, I love your rain in it. Soothing and well ambient indeed. Masterful work!

MaestroRage responds:

in this case TGO, differences seen and perceived are very good. I would have it no other way. Given such a fluent, unstable platform to get imagery from, it is in fact most interesting if two people have the same image! Nobody will see the same thing to the letter, it is not possible, and growing up experiences plays a big role how things are deciphered.

So not at all, i'm very happy to see your vision of the piece, it rings true, and well. Thank you for the review, i'm glad you liked it!


A tragedy befallen upon others, yet happiness in the eyes of two among the years. Amazing voice, sound, moving the mind to keep the soul within itself. The only question, is there Hope of Love that will soon become Hope and Love? Do you see it before your eyes and the question is does he see it before his eyes to?

Amazing! Superb Even!

You have a great talent indeed! I am expecting much much more work from you indeed! You are one artist I will indeed have to keep my eye on in the near future! The only problem I have is that I wish for you to make something like this, but longer if you will. You have talent just oozing out of you.


Imagination through Memory

This explains me a lot... find it odd how I can connect to it. You did a great job with this and I think you and The Super Flash Bros. could make a great flash with this.
Excellent job, superb through time alone... if there is a flash using this song please PM me telling me it's in the portal.

Burden of the Clock

A man waits outside the room, making his endless pace across his undecided pattern. Knowing not the tortures his wife is going through. He lights up his thirty-third cigarette. The clock on the room plays with his mind... it tells him his worries and doesn't help satisfy his emotional pain. The tick of the sound begins to make him tick in his steps, as the steps and tick are in sync with each other it makes the man more worried as insane, his mind slips slowly. The doctor busts through the door and bears the news upon the man. Life has been born again, a miracle seen in a room of science. A baby girl. The man enters and sees his wife holding his new daughter. He holds his wife and gazes upon his new daughter; a tear falls from his eye with more in line. Happiness through tears is a favorite emotion, but the clock was unjust and will still be unjust, although the man does not know this yet.

Did you put the tick in there for every single second? Because that's what I'm hearing and that was the inspiration I got for the story you have read above. I do indeed wish for you to continue your superb work. The melodies and ticks of seconds showing no matter how the melodies change in your life, time will keep pressing onward.

MaestroRage responds:

What an excellent story TGO... truly the burden of the clock here is phenomenal. The clock is always there, through bad or good, through pain or pleasure, it always keeps going. It may only stop as a means of going on is refused it, but even if one clock stops, there is an infinite number more then keep going.

To be fair, this is not just a ticking of a clock, it is also dbl bass string slaps. Which gave my clock's tick a more "old school" flavor, which is what I wanted. I also did not record each tick, I recorded to be honest, like 10 seconds worth.

Cutting those seconds up, I then put them to play with the tempo in time.

I am glad you found it inspiring enough to write a story, thank you for that, and the review! I'm glad you liked it!

Onward To Our Next Destination

Traveling through worlds untold to gain knowledge and strength through the quest that others would reject. As the chosen one and his men valiantly walk to their ship, they are reminded of the threats, the possibilities, the victories, the fame, and the loved ones that they're leaving behind once again.

I usually only put stories in with Classical music genres, but this is soothing, very soothing, I just had to write something to go along with it. I must say you have a certain air in your music that keeps me listening to more of your work. Another great piece by you. Keep up the good work!

Stargame responds:

That was fantastic, man! This is quite an excellent review, it's awesome that I was able to inspire someone to write about it! Thanks dude!


I really love the music! I really do, heck this could stand alone as just Instrumental without any lyrics! But that is my main concern is the singing, just tone it down some so the words are a little easier to understand...that is all I ask, but other than that I really love this song and have now downloaded it! Excellent Job! Keep up the good work!

Nicely Done

For a video game you can have a town festival, a lake bonfire, a town theme, a bar song, the possibilities are endless! Your style and mood really have a good effect on this song which made me enjoy it even more. Great job!


Your style is absent yet there. I do see a battle in your song, even one from a video game, but it wasn't an exact wow if you understand. You still did very nicely for a first composition attempts. This was well thought out I can see that, but you need more of a feel to it... I really didn't see a big battle before myself. With time you will become better. Improve and try and wow not only me, but others as well.

Cruelness through Love's Hate and Redemption

She enters the church and walks down the aisle, at the end stands the preacher, the bridesmaids, and the groomsmen, but she sees an emptyness up ahead for the groom is not there awaiting her...she is stopped by her mother who tells her that her husband to be has run. He left her there in an embarassment without concern over her emotions. The day she has been waiting for all her life will end in a night that nobody wanted. As she tries to slumber in her chambers she cannot so she rises from her bed, puts on her wedding dress, pulls the knife from her drawer, and ends her sorrow and sadness.

You and LadyArsenic make a beautiful team, could you send me the links or the titles of other songs you have collaborated with her. Also if it's not a hassle I would appreciate it if you could send this review to LadyArsenic somehow, I would like a response from both of you if it is possible.


MaestroRage responds:

heh, well there you have it TGO, one review above yours! We've collabed on a few pieces, if I am not mistaken there are 2 others on my page in which she sings

http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/liste n/74515 (Crumbling Cathedral)
http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/liste n/60913 (The Woman's Roar)

I have an old piece we collabed on, I think we should consider putting it up here, one of our first, yet one of my own favorites.

Your story also rings quite closely to the story used to create the song. However the man did not run off in my own mind, why he was unable to reach the alter, is another project, for another time, hopefully as another collab with LadyArsenic. I'll probably have to sing in that one as well, as it is the man's side of the story.

Thank you for the review TGO, i'm glad you liked it! I wish you the best on your future endeavors!
