short new piece in a while with a crazy bpm of 250

which is not that crazy if you think about it, since 250 is a lot like 125, but it does change arp patterns and relative note lengths and stuff

Honest votes and reviews are appreciated!

also, gonna try to throw some imagery atcha.

So basically, there is a huge solar flare that engulfs the Earth and it turns everyone into dancing skeletons and they also play marimbas. Everything is totally on fire, but it is bright and beautiful and everyone is having fun despite being dead. Eventually the party subsides and only chars remain of the once living and breathing planet. But that is not the end of the story. Life slowly begins to reemerge for some reason. You get a crazy time lapse of the transformation as you witness the Earth flower once again into a new iteration of its former glory. New forms of humanoid creatures evolve, and the idea of global life cycles gets grounded in the story. Except, this time the Earth is doomed because of human interference (pollution, etc.), as this narrative takes an environmental turn. Somehow, this second wave of destruction involves burning as well, just to cement the idea of destructive cycles. We go out with a bang, once again throwing a scorching death party. And it is actually even more banging than the last, with toxic fumes making pretty colors in the blazing sky. A new found appreciation for the order of the universe overtakes you as you realize that this is the only reasonable way to greet death, having learned about the looping nature of nature, so to speak.

Insane. I absolutely love this. Keep up the amazing work! :))))

makes me think of fireflies and moths :0

this feels high quality

I didn't picture skeletons exactly, I pictured more robots playing instruments on a spaceship of some kind in front of a Supernova. Loved it, though.

This song has a charm to it I'm attracted to. I have to admit I definitely got the feel of dancing and celebration, but completely following your imagery was a bit difficult. But enough about that, I'm here to review the song.
The melody line was original and intricate, with a simple fitting back beat. The synths played off each other very nicely--I couldn't find a single instrument choice the felt arbitrary or forced. The flow was also well thought out, with breaks and decrescendos that complimented the song and did not break up the piece, but rather made it whole.
Simply put this is a well made piece of music--interesting and technically correct. 5 stars, 5/5, and download.
