Short song I wrote this morning. It combines acoustics, 8-bit, and ambient music.

I added about a whole minute onto the song. It is a lot more epic and drawn out. I put in some new pads, tremolo guitars, and a vocoder. Enjoy :)

sounds cool.

i didn't really think that the electronic drums fit with this tune. real drums or just real sounding drums may have sounded better in my opinion. but still pretty nice

Not bad.

The guitars and synth work is very enjoyable.

I felt that a lot of the drum work felt coutner intuitive when only guitars were over it - as if it didn't quite match up with the bars, or the emphasis was in the wrong places.

Aside from that, very cool. Reminds me a bit of Mono or Explosions in the Sky, but with more synth.

SineRider responds:

You gave me a good idea. I may try and overlay some heavier drums near the end. I think it will give it a nice boost and level the drums and guitars.

I gotta admit, I took a lot of inspiration from those bands and the vocoder idea i got from Mogwai. Glad you liked it :)


It is a really relaxing song. Very well done!

SineRider responds:

thank ya!


It's like a mystical cloud of happiness poured over my head. ;D

SineRider responds:

edit: check out the new version ;)
