For this track I just messed around in Fruity Loops Studio 9 for a while, using samples and reverb on several drums presets whilst following a simple melody. Occasionally I threw in a random segment of "video game" synth (as 8-bit doesn't apply).
I had this idea of painting a picture within the listeners mind, of a boy sitting at the side of a beautiful, almost surreal, lake. Along the lakeside there are flowers, every colour you can imagine, and dragonflies skimming the waters surface. The soft looping ending is the boy swimming deeper and deeper into the lake, as a shadow at the bottom begins to emerge.
