In case you haven't yet, take a look at this amazing work by DreamForecast!
http://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/dreamforecast/floating-on-stars

When I saw this piece, something in my head kind of clicked, and I began working diligently on this track every free chance I got to. The feeling of being an infinitesimally small organism within an expanding universe can seem depressing to some people, but I feel so happy knowing that there's so much cool stuff out there that hasn't been explored or even observed yet, and I hope I reflected that feeling somewhat with this.

If anything, I hope you like it! Thanks for listening.

Sweet dude! I really like your use of different synths to capture the atmosphere. That's one thing I'm not particularly good at.

If I were to make any compliant it'd be that the 2nd half is not varied enough for it to really wow you by the end. It's a bit recycled by that point. Other than that I love it!


JoshuaHughes responds:

Thanks for the review! These are really helping me get a lot better a lot faster. Gotcha on the 2nd half. I'll make a mental note of it.

Great song! It almost seems like I can feel the inspiration you have gotten from the artwork (I must also say that I was able to stumble upon a new, favorite artist in the process)! When I took your description into account, I enjoyed the song a bit more. Somewhere after the 2:40 min. mark, however, I feel that it would have been best to build upon it a bit more. Other than that, you have done a great job!


JoshuaHughes responds:

Thank you so much! These reviews are definitely pointing me in directions I like. My future projects are going to sound so much better and I can't wait to show them to everyone!

Very strong piece.

Great production, good amount of variation, great melodies. Can't really find anything to criticize.

More sub-bass? I don't know, I love low ends, but that's just me trying to be nitpicky, hah.


JoshuaHughes responds:

Me too! I was actually very nervous with the <200 hz area, which may have resulted in the sub being a little more quiet than it should be. Thanks!

When a song lifts your spirit, you know it's right. That's why I know this is a good song. I like the sounds you use. Particularly the ones of the orchestra hits with those chord stabs, the in between melodies, and the snare with echo.


JoshuaHughes responds:

Means a lot to me, dude! Glad you got something from it.

LOVED IT!! :D. The intro was amazing and I loved those sounds. When the Kick kicked in at around 0:40 I wanted to start rave :D. and when the buildup started at 1:10 I was only thinking "Flawless".
And 1:30. Holy cow and 1:30 O_O. Almost threw me out of the seat becuase of how awesome it was :D

Glad I participated in this contest or I never would have gotten to hear bout you :D.
Haven't gone through all the songs yet, but this is probably going to be one of my tree fan favourites :D.

Instant 5.


JoshuaHughes responds:

I'm truly humbled, good sir! Making stuff that makes other people enjoy themselves, however slight that is, feels great!
