UPDATE:
I am honored and humbled to have placed 4th in the Mac13 contest, which so many incredibly talented people participated in. Everyone did a great job so please check out more entries to the contest.
If you enjoy my work here please check out some of my other 8-bit compositions and favorite for more as they come.

"Each thing is of like form from everlasting and comes round again in its cycle" - MA

Made for the Mac13 8-bit audio contest.

This song (like all my songs) are made by manipulating emulated 2A03 and MMC5 chips, which were used in the original NES system (and cartridges). It is naked 8-bit in all of its purity.

I created this by using the diagram drawn as a guide for the contest keeping a mood-changing cinematic aesthetic in mind; as well as a theme of macro-cycles.

the only actual 8bit track in the whole contest, go figure.

but did you take the style from my tracks? cause its very recogniceable, just curious.

(apart from the drumset i still need one of those, never found a proper vst)

Sadly i do have some criticism for you, there is never anything interesting going on, to me this track sounds like canvas, there is to much space that has potential to add something into, also the two halves dont fit together.

regards.

Thank-you for your candid review. The criticism is understood, I wrote it in more than one session and the parts are rather distinct - The space your referring to is supposed to be filled by animation- which was the point of the contest. I wanted to make several atmospheres to advance the story. I am glad it kept the judges interest more than yours!
As far as your perception of its likeness your style, I'm sorry you feel that way but my influences for this track are much older than my knowledge of you. Im sorry but you had no influence on this track at all.

Great work. The first half feels very classical in a way. :3

Simply Amazing!
I love the flow of the tune. The music in general makes me think of a mix between final fantasy and pokemon! Fantastic work, I mean I am left with nothing else to say but WOW!
