The previous song I uploaded originally had this song's chorus in it, but with different synth sounds and a totally different melody. I feel like I still have a long way to go, but I also feel like I'm improving with each song. Hopefully that's true! I'm also not sure about the title, but without lyrics, I always struggle to name songs.

I noticed some weird pumping when I listened to this on one of my sets of headphones, but I listed to it on five other references and it sounded alright. Let me know if you notice it.

I'd like to move back to using some real instruments now that this song is done, but I'll return to this sort of thing and hopefully be able to blend in some more organic sounds.

Thanks for listening!

Also, thanks to everyone else who listened to this and gave me advice. Etelik taught me about building kick sounds and gave me some great criticisms.

Update:

Very exciting seeing this being front-paged. I'm not sure what I did differently, but I'm happy. Sad to see it being zero-bombed so hard though. I also meant to add in my original write-up that I predominantly used my mouse to write this song, whereas usually I only use my piano.

Well, this peice is very cinematic. You definitely know what sounds good and what doesn't. I can't name any real flaws in the song. Great job.

A little repetitive in the melody, but the synths blend really well. I it a good song overall.

Tried to go a little more simple with the melody (or lack thereof) this time around, but think I need to work on a balance of simplicity and maintaining interest; a tricky feat! Anyway, thanks for the review! :)

Personally, I love it. Everything sounded smooth and perfectly equalized and the rhythm... I have no quarrels. Props.
