~Close your eyes, relax, and listen~

So this is my December MAC entry. This song is unique for me because I tried to create a realistic orchestral sound, which is a significant change from the trance and electronica I usually make. I don't know if I succeeded, but I like to think it sounds cool.
The theme for the contest is Euphoria, and I tried to capture as much of it as possible in the various sounds.

I really hope you enjoy this one. A lot of work went into it, so reviews would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for listening, good luck to other contestants.

Astonishing Piano.

Your instruments all sound sublime!

Uhhh... getting through sounds a LOT like a song from Roxette. think you may have bee nsubliminally raped mate. XD

Which software are you using? I want it!

Gloudas responds:

I use fruity loops studio 8, with a plugin called nexus. Many of the sounds in this are from Nexus, hence the pianos and stuff sounding so good.


Amazing work. I love this piece. I can't fit enough praise into this tiny review, but know that I will be looking forward to all share with us. Thanks for sharing this wonderful talent!

Gloudas responds:

I can't tell you how much I appreciate that. Thanks for reviewing, I'm really glad you enjoyed it

Let me know

Gloudas responds:



are now my NUMBER 1 ARTIST! listen to some of my stuff. its not NEAR as amazing as this, but id love to try and do a collaborative peice with you some time.

I CAN'T......FEEEL......MY LEGS!!!!

Instantaneously the first chord struck, sweeping my legs out from underneath me. Needless to say, I fell on my face. When I regathered myself and managed to get back on my feet, I realized something. Its not what is on the outside that counts, but rather what lies just on the exterior. At a glance, this song is nothing more than a pair of cardboard houses. You really need to just clear your thoughts and let your mind openly wander, accepting of all things beautiful and silver plated. Plated silver, that is. I'm not trying to make you uncomfortable, but I want you and only you. It seems to me that a whole spectrum of frequencies are displayed here. Good thing too, 8 of my 10 fingers and thumbs get hostile when the lower frequencies are nowhere to be found. You can tell when a song is in need of those rumbling lows because my reviews usually look something like this:

ThE H ERE klower rjSDFREQUANUNCES!!!!!! HWwy tsiddnt you put thatem nore more in there@!!!?!????

And it will be summarized as something like "SSSSJSJSJSJSJSJS"

Obviously not the case here though! As soon as the song started I had a panic attack and wrote the first thing that came to mind in the summary line. Then, out of fiery anger, I rated the song an "X No Stars". Luckily I was able to change that later after recovering and coming to my bitter sweet senses.

In conclusion, this is a gorgeous piece of music. You were going for a euphoric feeling, and I'd say you n...n-n........naeei-an.....NAIDL....
..N-N-N-D-n-n-..asha.....NA-nailed it. Whether or not you become rich and famous off this song... I could care less. JebbaL still <3 Gloudas, and JebbaL still <3 neutrals. Now gimme kiss.

Nice work!

Gloudas responds:

I have no idea what just happened. Did we just do it?

But in all cereal, that was an excellent review, and suffice to say, I orgasm'ed multiple times while reading it. I wouldn't be surprised if porn companies start selling that review to the masses. So god damn hot.
