New Music: "Prophecy"

Today I'm releasing a new song which I've been working on for the last two nights.

Originally I was on the keyboard trying to create something much bigger, something that would meet my own artistic standards. Unfortunately I was unsuccessful, and when I finally decided that perhaps I should lower my expectations and start a bit smaller, the main melody for "Prophecy" instantly came to my mind.

When I wrote it down I decided to let the music develop itself. I didn't have anything in mind for it, no purpose, no specific direction I wanted to go and no specific mood I wanted the song to have. I was surprised myself when I noticed how the mood slowly changed from the majestic main theme to a creepy and unsettling, much darker atmosphere. So for the finale I decided to have the brass section literally pull it out of there, and I think it worked out quite well - but listen for yourself.

You can download it here, or from the music page. I hope you like it!

By the way: I know the title has been used before... but I have my reasons - three of them, actually. And in case you're wondering: The third reason is that the brass sample I used is called "Prophecy". :-)
