Title of Image: shore

I had some interesting ideas that came up when making this. The main thing I wanted to try was to make a noise for the weird magic thing going on in the image. Then I wanted to make an atmosphere for the very cool-looking area. with the melody representing the character. that was kind of a very short sum of my thought process and i wanted to leave a link to the sound effect I used for the magic.

I also made Shores.

Even though I prefer listening to your other entry, I like the way this entry captures the essence of its art inspiration more. The sound design feels just right not only for the atmosphere, but I can feel the particular colours leaping off the animation while I listen to this. The sound you made for "Shores" is very airy and has hints of ambiance behind it, both which convey the sounds of wind and water in the art.

I love the piece's progression with the addition of the percussion. The change in energy adds momentum and the change in pace allows for the exploration of the piece's soundscape in a more rhythmic motion. The composition feels so off, and yet that's what makes it work so well with the atmosphere.

Overall, this entry connects with the art well and has a great sound design that is oozing with atmosphere. The only other issue I have is that it ends so abruptly. I would have liked to hear it at least fade out, let the tail linger for a bit longer - it almost feels like there was more to this piece but a section of it was isolated for this contest (which wouldn't make sense given that there was more time left in the allotted range to expand on it more).

Thank you! This one was definitely trying to turn the given image into sound. I really appreciate the feedback!
