Well, I went to New York City last weekend with a local community center to see the Blue Man Group perform at the Astor Place Theatre. Its a great show, I highly recommend listening to some of their stuff, if you haven't already. Anyway...

All throughout the trip, there was one girl who caught my eye, just somthing about her attracted me. Unfortunatly, I didn't introduce myself until the end of the trip. Anyway, she is a really amazing girl, and this one is for her. Claire, I hope you enjoy this song. I haven't ever done this style before, sorry if it sounds a little...akward. Parts of this were actually made on the busride home.

To Newgrounds Listeners: This song isn't about the vote, but if you do vote on this song, review fairly.




well thats an interesting feeling like expectation and relief mixed together well great song keep'em coming man
fav 5/5 10/10

not bad but too repetitive

the song has potential and you've got some good melody sections, i think you just need a little less volume on the strings and maybe another instrument and not make it so repetitive and you have something rather decent. I've noticed the only way people are ever able to get away with repetitive is if they do mindless techno for the mindless masses, or if vocals are involved. any other time too much repetition can get boring fast. I would definitely call this a good song, just not a finished one.

CompletedEmotion responds:

Thank you for your kind review. I suppose that the repitition comes from my trance days. See, I don't like techno because of its repetitiveness.

This sound does weird things to me.

I really like this . It gives me a sad and happy feeling at the same time. I will be listening to this a lot. Great job.

Feels more pop than classical, but w/e

I do like the overall sound and instrumentation, but the constant ostinato made this kinda feel like a one-trick pony. You add layers and depth on top of chords, but never really develop it - and it ends up kind feeling like (slight) variations on a four-bar progression. What you have right now works pretty good as a sort of chorus part, but I think you probably need to inject some different "lyrical" sections in between to make it feel like a full piece. So yeah, here's sometime to chew on :).

CompletedEmotion responds:

True, it was very repetitive, but ostinati are almost everywhere these days, and have deep roots in music going back to before time. But see, you're right about it sound more like pop music, and that is indeed due to the unchanging style of the song.

Perhaps if I added some vocals?

Expect a redo of this song later on.
