- Like its brother, it has simple base instruments, build-ups, constant repetitive piano and 2 climaxes. Base instruments are string and choir. Spiccato strings are a more complex. The piano melody is similar to older piece but blended with the harps. A new instrument added in is low whistle crafted by the master Nightbeat, heavily modified by me*. Constructing the low whistles' melodies aren't difficult. I have the scores (welp, in tracker notes...) and I am ready to share them.
*(samples are free to use and modify, that's why we have module files[it's normal for tracker users to use each other samples, as long as they credit the original source]).
- I aim at the emotions differently than older piece. Calamity is more of a gentle but slow flowing piece than Sorrow. Calamity carries both Western and Eastern styles. Most people who listened to this song (e.g my relatives) found this song really fluently in Chinese or Japanese music style. However they would be more surprising, if I am gonna tell them none of the instruments are from Asian.
- Hmm, I thought about sorrow synonyms a lot. I thought about Melancholy being the nearest synonym but I already named it for one of the song. So I flipped out a thesaurus and look for similar ones. When I search at catastrophe (sorrow synonym), I found Calamity. It just fits in right away.
Final words, I love most of the song in Bosa's Quest for the Crown contest. Thanks to all of you who visited my song. Thank to Bosa. And thank to most, Samulis. :)
