Made for the first round of the NGMT, and inspired primarily by this image:

I felt like I really connected with the theme of this piece, and so producing it was pretty instinctual. Imagine a world blanketed all in just the shades of one color. This song is meant to be gentle, relaxing, and easy to listen to. I hope you enjoy it! :)

Thank you! I appreciate that. :)

Absolutely beautiful, actually beautiful doesn't even begin to describe this! It reaches into the depths of your soul and pulls out every ounce of emotion from you leaving you breathless. Simple and amazing.

Neon-Bard responds:

Wow, that's deep. That really means a lot to me, thank you so much for the kind words. I am over the moon to know that this song can be experienced and appreciated in such a way! :)

really love the piano in this one, so calm :D

Neon-Bard responds:

Thank you! I'm glad you liked it! :D

Thanks for listening! :)

Hey Neon :)

So this piece is pretty awesome. I'm really happy it placed in the contest. You deserve it, especially with an awesome piece like this. The piano work is fantastic and your instrument choice is awesome, which says a lot since you only had so many instruments to choose from! The only thing I can really criticize on is that the song gets a little repetitive. Mainly the bass in the piano, but perhaps that's what makes it sound so monochromatic... Overall, this is a solid piece! And it definitely deserved a spot on the top three! I hope you join in on the other rounds of this contest!


Neon-Bard responds:

Hey Stunkel!

I really appreciate the kind words and feedback! It's good to know that I chose my instruments correctly, I'm glad it all worked out the way it did. As others have pointed out, the repetition can be a tad too much, so I understand where you're coming from. I'll definitely have to keep this in mind for future songs! :)
