It's the last hour of my birthday.

Y'know, the funny thing is. I didn't really realize it was my birthday until I was date-dotting food at work today, haha.

Life is one big long year anyway, eh?

I noticed a frontpage post about "Jamuary".
Basically, make a song a day for the month. I'm already behind, but I wanted to release somethin' for the 'ol birthday today. January's muh month after all. Silly hard-headed ram-boy...

Was roughly ~4 hours+sidetracks of time put in after work today.

Maybe more simple ditties to come for the rest of the month if my mood is fitting.
Been on the down and out with tunes lately.

I've been in this weird "60bpm" (sometimes sub 60) thing lately. Might sound silly, but I like being able to feel (Mesopotamian/Sumarian) time. (they essentially created sexagesimal [60] counting). Let me know if you "feel" the time throughout...I'm curious to know how the progression feels. Faster, slower, or fine..

Generally, I seem to feel time slower, I think. Almost like being dragged along, really.

Keep improving life as best you can. Keep in mind. We've all been forced here.

Thanks for all the love these last months Newgrounders.

You and the GeoDash community have kept me in fine spirits.

I've much appreciated it!

I like the jazzy tone at the beginning. Like many of your pieces, it seems like the backing track for a moment of decision-making or personal reflection that's very character-driven. Not about which flavor of ice cream to choose, but whether a person's essence is embodied in ice cream or meat and potatoes. One is carefree and optimistic, and the other is more solid and real (though not particularly healthy either). Anyway, the flute-like melody instrument adds a great sense of buoyancy to the piece later on, and the dreamy atmosphere and solid mixing give it a sense of balance and blending. This is relaxing and pensive, but also catchy and engaging. The texture of the flutes - staccato-y and crisp, despite the reverb - is the thing that sticks with me the most. Keep at it, LLAAPPSSEE! ^_^

This pesky existence stuff is always poking and prodding. I suppose it's nice we have this ability to influence our reality though. Sometimes it feels like your hard-stuck no matter what you do. Choice fatigue got me down.

The flute-like sound you're hearing is actually piano. ;)
It has a very sharp volume envelope cut on it that creates the staccato feeling + some heavy and quick-acting tremolo effect for that warbling + delay/reverb, If I recall correctly. Outside of the use here, it kinda has a 60/70's funky feel to it when you play it dry and harder. When played softly it has a pleasant lilting feeling. Was sorta an accident. :D


Buying our knowledge, selling our morals

Bartering your feelings, trading their thoughts

It all loses value, when it seems of less worth

It feels rather sickening, more so than earth


I really like this track, sounds really nice. Great job!
