this is like if you could zoom in on the last 30 seconds of your life before you fade away into the darkness and slow that down and expand it into 4 minutes. where would your thoughts turn to..?





i expect that a lot of people will just be bored/uninterested by this track but it is honestly one of my favorite tracks i have written


also lol more genre trolling -_- i hate choosing genres on this stupid website so i just randomly do it. every time you mention genres in the reviews i kill one hostage so BE CAREFUL




Rated 5 / 5 stars

I have no idea how I missed this get posted. I feel bad that I did.


This is definitely you. I love hearing your style pop up here and again. Although, for a sad song, this is pretty peaceful and happy. I bet I can write something more sad (haha not a real challenge. Making sad songs make me sad, and sad isn't fun lol).

But I get where you're going with this. And I dig it. The more I listen to it, the more I can just about visualize a thought process going on with this, and the emotion. And it makes me happy.

My mind is confused now. Thanks for that.

But I'm happy

I dig this a lot. It keeps your interest the whole way through, the percussion and instruments are well chosen and very well mixed, and it just has a great atmosphere.

I'm a huge fan of the glide you've got on the lead synth. It's well placed when it's there. The piano is another standout feature of this piece. The delay and stereo effects you threw on it really make it shine that much more. The filtering and the little fx pads placed around the track are just the icing on the cake.

Fantastic song, as always. I'd expect nothing less.

Dude, this is like some Star Wars / Fifth Element type jazz. This is really freaking cool. Not sure if it fits the piece, some parts do, some parts feel like something else. But what I love about your music is you have this signature style and you stand out. Good job man.

Oh weird, I totally missed this yesterday when I said it was a shame you didn't participate this year! I think it didn't show up in my feed for some reason :'(

I'm glad I found myself looking around today though, as I got to hear such a nice piece because of it!
Everything form the melodies, to the arrangement to the mixing sounds fine to me :)
I don't mind the slower pace nor the increase in "laid down-ness", compared to your genearal entires for competitions.

IMO this also fits perfectly with the art!
So great job, and good luck :DDD

On another note, whatever happened to your Ludum Dare game?

hahaha I saw your response and I was like "what the heck is he talking about..." that was pretty funny :D

my ludum dare game exists - it's over on my ludum dare profile! it's really goofy, and there's like 1-2 really big bugs that I've been procrastinating on fixing, but i ended up really liking the game anyways. :)

glad you liked my song too!

Yes! I love sad music. I like the somber mood and soulful melodies. Your sound design is always very carefully crafted, and I appreciate that. It was pretty slow to develop, though, and had a lot of moments of minimalism. The melodies are excellent, unsurprisingly. The automations do a lot to keep this song interesting. The phrasing is well-done. By the end, I didn't view it as sad so much as longing or wistful - the only thing I couldn't tell was whether it was longing for the future or the past. Nice well-balanced texture, though - I especially thought the bass at 2:47 was a nice touch. There was a really multi-faceted transition at 4:05 that still didn't quite seem smooth enough. Maybe that's because the tempo change was a bit too conspicuous. Still, I liked the coda. Solid work overall, as always. I'm not usually the kind of person to criticize people's genre choices, but kill as many hostages as you want. Just don't upload it to Facebook Live - Zuckerberg will get mad.

thanks TL! yes, the big risk of this piece is that it doesn't go full overdrive insane awesome like i normally would do, and the development is much slower than normal for me. its a much more restrained piece. i think that in the end this arrangement choice SHOULD make the piece more enjoyable to listen to for longer, at the expense of a slightly less arresting first listen. but i guess we'll see!
