Sweet.
Was fun to participate last year so I'll do it again now.
I decided to go with doing something I'm more comfortable doing, so I got an idea from this piece of art.
By the talented Kamikaye:
http://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/kamikaye/seaoleensky

and decided to start on a song. Mainly thought of the starry sky, but at the same time space is so far away so maybe I reflected that.

It's more fitting to have in the background.
Newgrounds made it loop in a weird way, I tried to make it better, but this is as good as it gets I guess.

Honest reviews are nice, I always try to improve!

Have a nice day!

Edit: Did some minor changes. The marimbas are not as much "in your face" now and stuff.
Edit edit: Lowered the bass a little and did a tad bit automation on the volumes.
Last Edit: I changed the ending now I'm leaving until deadline good luck all :D

Yo!

So...i liked the style of electronic sound you used on your song, and i loved the begin of music, sounds epic. I think the end was not too good, but is acceptable.

Audio Inspired Music Review

This is a good song that fits the art well! :D It's got a good jam to it, and overall fits the art well with its nice mix of instruments. Also doesn't overstay its welcome and is mixed well.
Really enjoyed this!

Enjoying the production, progression and melodies quite a bit. Very bright, yet calming.
At first glance I wanted to say I don't think it fits the artwork all that well but then I imagined a movie ending with a "riding off into the sunset" scene and this made a lot of sense.

Great work!

This piece totally makes me think of those timelapse things of the night sky you see in documentaries for some reason. I would NEVER have expected something like this to go with the picture- I was thinking I would hear some super ambient thing when I saw the picture and then BOOM! this came out of my headphones, and I gotta hand it to you, it's an odd combo that somehow works decently enough. Could fit better with the image, but it's not bad at all.

I think it would be nice to have something other than the synth-orch pad that comes every other measure or have some variation it does from time to time to make it less repetitive. I also think you might want to consider adding more counter melody stuff. There's an awful lot of great texture stuff going on, but some more definite counter-melody stuff would be cool.

Regarding instrumentation, this track has a very nice, lush mix and instruments. Sounds rather well balanced too! I really like the little bitcrushed things that pop in here and there- maybe add more stuff like that like "shooting stars" or something. Also, some piano arps might be cool. Arps are virtually synonymous with space (after pads, that is).

Mastering and mixing sounds pretty good. I might pan the marimbaish thing over more so it doesn't get too much in the way of what is happen in the middle and brings interest to one side... or even put an LFO on the pan for more fun. Experiment around with stuff!

(oh and the loop isn't really looping... just a nitpick)

Keep compos(ed/ing)!
