"We Spied Each Other In Submerged Light" :.

Lights penetrated the surface as we made our escape into these liquids. Against the backdrop of filtered blue your hair melted. Against the backdrop of you we applied our touches. My little Pisces. Time felt slow here, like we could breathe forever. And we could; just go back up.

(Sunlight Walking Through Dusty Air leads into this track)




I like the use of fx in the bg - although personally I dont think they were present, or wide enough - the stereo on this seems to limited - it should be broader to really pull the listener in - it's got great potential that way :)

you seem to be big on the stuttering effects - thats cool - kinda reminds me of kingbastard's method of making music - sorry for a musician reference there - I cant help but compare people to others I've heard - I think everyone is guilty of that at one point or another.

It does have a nice pro feel to it otherwise though. - altho that sweepy effect I feel kind of cheapens it on its own until the percussion layers onto it. You got great potential man - should be interesting to see how you grow!

reminds me of something I would hear in an art film, or one of those ritzy modern nightclubs.

Thanks, you've got a good point. It'd probably sound a bit nicer if i widened this track up. I might actually go mess around with it a but more to see if i can bring out a better presence to the song.

Yeah, love the stuttering. I'm a big fan of IDM and such so its generally what i do. No problem for the musician reference haha. I've actually never heard of Kingbastard though. I might have to check him out. Is he a Newgrounds member? Or no? This was inspired a bit by the duo "swod"

This is one of my favorite tracks. Along with probably one of my best ambient ones / less glitchy crazy songs. So its definitely something different for me. I had fun with the various sound samples of different noises.


mellow, soothing, as usual, i enjoyed the poem. a little repetitive, but i dont mind too much.

i really liked the little touches here and there. sounds nice, like when i go scuba diving, it doesnt feel like staying down there forever.

oh man, another review from you! And your the first to finally review this song, too, awesome. Again, thank you for the words and ears. I'm glad you enjoy my writing and such too..
Yeah, i was just trying to go for something a bit more repetitive with slow subtle changes, but something that was nice to listen to even in its repetitive nature.

As far as the moment were the 'dive' takes place in the song, i always wondered if i made it a bit too short. I could / should go back and lengthen that part , eh?
