My own rendition of the ending theme from Journey, created from scratch in FL Studio with Squaresoft samples (Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana, and Final Fantasy VI). Originally composed by Austin Wintory for the game Journey (Playstation 3; ThatGameCompany, 2012).
I created this 100% by ear, so I had to take some liberties. This took dozens of hours, picking out all the beautiful little movements across the wide variety of instruments used. It was truly a labor of love, though. I only hope that I did not misrepresent one of Mr. Wintory's favorite parts! :)
Text from the image:
"This is a tribute to Mr. Wintory, whom I wish to thank from the bottom of my heart, and in the language I speak best -- the language of my childhood: SNES.
I cannot thank you enough for allowing Journey to spread its wings and teach us about ourselves. Your breathtaking musical score deserves every last ounce of acclaim, and I am certain that I will carry these sounds with me, in my heart, until the day that I die.
I speak for countless grateful gamers, whose souls you have filled with warmth: may you find all manner of happiness, in this life and beyond."
Thank you, Austin Wintory & ThatGameCompany!
