For context behind this piece:
http://troisnyx.newgrounds.com/news/post/986305

The original, to your left, is what originally resulted from having that idea and being ambitious enough to try. This, here, is the culmination of that idea. No one could ever take that away from me back in 2012 with their reviews. And now, no one can ever take that away from me in any other form. I mean, in my current ability, notwithstanding years of breaks because my mind wrestling with heavy psychological damage, Mio took two days, and Homura took nine. Then, of course, there was the updated section in between the two phases, which took me much longer because that was one thing which wasn't even in the original vision of the song, and yet, I feel it needs a grandiose buildup into the second phase.

This song is me. It reconciles the two sides of my musical ability that I am strongest at -- electronic, dreamy ambiences, and frenetic dance-like tunes accompanied by "stupidly traditional" drums, as Jeroen Tel affectionately puts it, heheheh. It doubles as a prayer, by virtue of its lyrics. It also shows the kind of influence I've had over the past five, six years -- Enya and Akiko Shikata, to be precise.

The title, Mio / Homura, was a poetic translation of synonyms of Water / Flame from Japanese, a direct pun on Waterflame's username and my two compositional phases, as Waterflame was my opponent for the semifinal of the 2012 Audio Deathmatch, to which this song was originally submitted. Bear in mind that Mio and Homura are almost exclusively used as given names in Japanese today.

I sequenced everything but most percussion -- a headless tambourine and a medieval long drum, which I recorded. Also recorded probably 70 vocal tracks on this thing, the most I've ever done to date.

With the completion of this piece, the circle is now complete.

Enough waffle now. For those who are curious about the lyrics, here they are.

And I have also enabled external API on this song. Let's see what becomes of it.

Oh, cool. I like it, haven't heard anything really like this in a very very long time, but I like it a lot. Each layer is just like, simply beautiful and it mixes very well. This stuff isn't my taste but it's really relaxing at parts and is overall an interesting journey. I would not want it any other way.

At first, I didn't warm-up to this track because I'm used to listening to really heavy dubstep, dance, drum n' bass, and trance music, but this track made me feel like someone splashed a bucket of cold water in my face like, "Wake up and realize how beautiful this is." This is absolutely incredible... I am in awe. Awesome job, Troisnyx. Hands-down 5 Stars. :)
