End of Days. Original piano composition
If you’ve ever seen a disaster movie, you’ll know there’s often a scene near the end where people are futilely running for their lives or embracing loved ones that one last time before the calamity strikes and everyone dies. This song reminds me of the dramatic and emotional soundtracks that are usually associated with those scenes, hence the name, End of Days. I composed this song when I was 10 years old.

There He Was - Fantasia for Solo Violin and Orchestra by Adam Kulju
I wrote this when I was 12 years old for my soon to be baby brother Adrian. I would love to have this piece played by a real orchestra!
