Sometimes you have to look at yesterday and mix it up with today to create a better tomorrow.

A lot of my earlier works were very fast, very dramatic sounding pieces. With this one, I decided to emulate myself then using the skills I've developed now.

As for the inspiration behind this one... I'm actually none too sure. It kinda just came to me over the summer before school began.

Love the flow... the soft, slower background, the faster moving tempo work so well together. I might not write music, but I sure know a good thing when I hear it!

akiTONE responds:

Thanks! That makes me happy to hear!

Comfy and easy to listen to.

And sometimes, the best inspiration comes from nowhere.

akiTONE responds:

Just look at No More Heroes.

The game was practically designed on the toilet.

Its so cheerful and inspiring, really like how it progresses!
For my personal taste I would add a snare to make it more boom if you know what I mean xd

akiTONE responds:

Yeah, the percussion track's pretty tame on this one. I definitely need to shake it up a little.

Coincidentally, I've been thinking this piece would also sound great played as a punk song, using nothing but guitars and a more intense percussion style. Like a BlazBlue song!

The tune is nice and the composition is pretty. It's a good song, and I like it. However I feel like it doesn't have much about it that makes it truly distinct and original; the style is very similar to a lot of artists I've heard, and thus it doesn't stand out much.

I think this song itself could work very well as an intro/buildup to a bigger, longer song with more variety and intensity, and I'd definitely be interested in hearing such a thing if you chose to compose it.

akiTONE responds:

... are they at least good artists?

If not, then I just don't know how I'd live with myself.
