I rushed this one. I'm uploading this directly after rendering it. It had to be posted for the NGAUC KO-rounds. I still like it (otherwise, I wouldn't have uploaded it).
[edit: deadline got postponed, so I tweaked some things, balanced the mix more and remastered the thing]
The song is heavily influenced by external factors. The main one of them is the way I felt in the past days. Even though not that much happened, my mood changed quite often. Also I got inspired by Townsfolk Melody, by BlueAlpha14, which has a great atmosphere, and by 1f1n1ty, whose story telling style, and crazy complicated compositions taught me a lot about music theory.
It's not your everyday standard song. It's a story about a combination of so many things, that this description can't contain it.
I really appreciate constructive criticism, because I'm not a pro. And if you have time, please share what this song makes you think of!
