So, lately I've been finding that making music has felt more like work than it has fun. So I've decided to shift my attitude about how I'm doing it. I found myself too caught up in making stuff that is more listener friendly and "makes sense" as a song.

In reality... I don't really enjoy making music like that. I enjoy making music just to make music. I don't care if it "makes sense" or if it abides by some rules to fit into X genre. Honestly, I don't even care that much if I mix it perfectly. And I think that's where I lost my way.
Instead of just writing what I find fun, I spent a lot of time trying to achieve things I didn't enjoy.

So this is me going back to my roots and just writing something because I felt like writing it.

And it feels really refreshing to be able to write like that again. It didn't feel like work, it felt like fun.

So I hope you guys enjoy.

This is very good. I joined newgrounds this year and it was hard to find you. I like the piano part, because it is logical. (I saw the description though.)

this is really cool!! I love the melody, the piano, the effects, really nice song!!!! But there is at 3:05 a little detail (the thing that goes like tuh tuh tuh, not really cool melody... yeah I know hard to illustrate in a review) that breaks the melody... but it doesn't even last 3 second, so it is fine... continue that good job..

Gone back-to-roots, huh? Hey that's not bad. In fact I don't think I could agree more with much of what you've said in your Author Comments. Music should be an enjoyable thing to do and not really something that feels like a job, unless of course it's your actual career.

Like some of the synths you've got here; I remember the whirly one being used in Phyrnna's "DFOTM".

Keep doing what you're doing. You know, even as a career, if you enjoy making music, it's never really a job to make stuff. Just be you.

The late great Richard Joseph said it best "...do what I did, and do what no one else is doing". You don't need to find your audience, your audience will find YOU.
