My NGADM '13 first round submission. I was super thrilled to be included in the NGADM, and even more so to have been able to produce something I'm pleased with. I'd say something here about the process and the inspiration, etc, but it just kind of ... happened.

Best of luck to JacobCadmus, you should go check out his stuff right now. He's amazing. No, seriously go now.

NGADM Round 1 review.


What a beautiful, serene track. You have truly captured the notion of peace within this production of yours. The atmosphere is just astonishing. The piano blends into the soft pad with such grace; it is absolutely mystifying. Speaking of the piano, the notes seem to flow seamlessly from one point to the next throughout the song, great job! The mixing, quality, flow, and balance of the track are all splendid, though at times the piano seems to rely just a tad too much on reverb (I am guilty of the same thing sometimes, too).

It is quite obvious that this track is all about simplicity. However, the simplicity of this track represents itself as a double-edged sword. While you have done a phenomenal job at creating an atmosphere of such a grand scale, it also leaves the song with emptiness where it begs to be wholesome and full. There were a number of places where just a few notes could make a world of difference, 1:50 'till 2:02 being a prime example. Now, I understand that periods like this are meant to allow the listener to quickly reflect on what they just heard, but some subtle notes may help, you know?! :)

The conclusion was a little generic, but at the same time, I think it was a perfect fit for the type of song.

I really enjoyed listening to this track. Keep up the fantastic work! :D

Score: 9/10
