♡Thanks for frontpaging this song♡

I try to never miss an AIM!

I love art, and there are so many amazing artists on NG.

I first saw Anas Abdin's art a few years ago, and fell in love with the style! This year I knew I wanted to create a song inspired by one of his artworks. They are very relaxing, but since this is for the Art Inspired Music Contest, I decided to go with one that has multiple layers to it, and has a very wide interpretation. This is my take on Anas Abdin's artwork, titled Hope:

The title of my track (Hopea) is Finnish, and means "Silver". I usually name my own songs, since I have my individual style and way of naming things. But this title was actually suggested by Jordi (@etherealwinds), and I couldn't listen to the track and imagine any other name after hearing it. So thank you for that!

A few days ago I upgraded from my previous version of Native Instruments' "Komplete", to "Komplete 13 Ultimate Collector's Edition". This song is actually entirely made with new instruments that I acquired in that deal, with no exception. I thought it would be a fun challenge, and limitations often breed creativity. Let me know if you think it worked, in this case!


Enjoy listening!


I recommend opening the artwork in a new window and zooming in to 300% + fullscreen (f11) [or whatever works with your monitor/screen], whilst you listen.

Felicidades por el FrontPage ( ╹▽╹ )
Está genial cómo está arreglada la música, un toqué hermoso de instrumentos y buena calidad. Me encantó (≧▽≦).

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Gracias! :)
I'm glad you liked the instruments and the arrangement!

This matches with the artwork very, very well. Falling autumn leaves floating down a stream. The piano highlights the ambience in the most relaxing and beautiful way.

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Aww, thank you for the nice words! I had the artwork up throughout the whole composing process. It helped me that it moves a bit, since I could feel the scene along with the music a bit better.

Giving me more chilled out Dead Cells vibes, which is what the artwork does as well - great job!

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

I haven't played it myself, but it looks great! I'll take a listen to some of the OST later :)
Thank you for listening!!
